Pursuing Health and wellness January 22nd, 2010
I am very excited about my progress in this challenge. I had my first meeting with a personal trainer at Dixon yesterday who just happened to be my old roommate. It was very challenging and showed me how far behind I am with my knee rehab and my flexibility. Considering I used to live with him, he did not hold anything back in informing me how pathetic I was in certain areas. I am excited to pursue improvements in these areas, and I am also doing a great job of getting 7 hours of sleep this term. I have been trying to get 6 hours a night for four years now and consistently have missed my goal. I think having this challenge has motivated me to make it a higher priority and with the extra sleep I have been getting I feel like a new man.
I am confident that I will continue to improve my overall health and wellness to help me re-open the pursuit of the many large dreams that I have. I have been using CAPS services as of late as well and have really found them to be beneficial to help me improve as a person. Again, nothing super exciting to report, but maybe by the end of the chalenge I can kill a cougar with my bear hands or something so I have something really exciting to share with you all.
Have a great weekend,
The First Week January 15th, 2010
My first week has been pretty crazy so far. I have a big nonprofit retreat coming up this weekend and have been very busy preparing for it. Because of this it has been challenging to accomplish my goal of getting 7 hours of sleep a night and focusing on my knee rehab and back health. I still feel like I have done a good job of working out every morning and staying on top of my overall health. I am very excited about this challenge and to have a team of people to help me accomplish these goals.
I was able to see a chiropractor yesterday and will continue to have more appointments throughout the rest of the term to figure out what is going on. Sorry there is nothing exciting to report this week. Maybe next week I will have more thrilling adventures to report.
