02C53: One Step At a Time

Monday Adobo

Metro Manila Community Quarantine - Day 1087

I'm gaining weight again. This was a given as I've been unable to work out as strenuously as I used to. Between my initial laziness to my recent arm injury, I feel like I've been doing less and less to stay active. It's why I'm trying to jog again at the very least - running around BGC doesn't require extensive use of my arm after all. 

I started this week with yoga. I should have jogged, but I didn't. I woke up to use the bathroom around 06:00am, which was just before my usual alarms. I went back to sleep and then woke up well after my usual arms, so that didn't leave me a lot of time. I probably could have still forced myself out for a quick jog, but the aforementioned lethargy kept me down longer than I would have liked.

I don't want to go back to my former weight level, but it's pretty easy to slip back into that place. And my writing about this tonight is a promise to myself not to do that. If I can't push my left arm too hard just yet, then I need to at least get my cardio back up. I jogged at least thrice last week, so that's something. I'll try to aim for that again this week but at least lengthen the actual jogging sessions. That means not sleeping too late because of geekier pursuits. That means getting out of bed and not giving in to procrastination. 

Every day is a struggle in itself. But at the very least, I don't stop fighting.
