Busy, Busy Morning

Hi, everybody.

I’ve mentioned a few times this week that I’ve been in a slump. I mean, what’s new, right? I probably tell you lot that I’m in a slump every other blog post. Shit. I probably do. Maybe I’m not in a slump. Maybe I’m just a victim of the moment, or make myself out to be.

See, writing is cool, isn’t it?

Well today I woke up late. On purpose. We’re… 9 or 10 days away from my first boxing match in five years so let’s just say my body is a bit overtrained right now. Well, a lot overtrained. Let’s be honest. Multiple miles of running a day mixed with sprints, add some sparring, add some weightlifting, oh then do some more sprints. It’s tough, but it’s worth it.

This morning I started off with mowing my lawn instead of running. Don’t worry, I ran in between mowing the front yard and the back. Then I sprinkled in some sprints. Then I finished the backyard. Now I’m about to head to lunch with my Ma, then a jam-packed afternoon of meetings.

Fun stuff, right?

It is. I may find myself in mental slumps, but the physical activities I do that pass through me with ease keep me going. It may sound stupid, but sometimes I think we spend too much time battling with our own mind and not letting enough stuff pass through us. Taking moment by moment instead of yesterday’s moment all the way into today. Refresh. Recharge. Move past that shit. Take on what’s next in your life and never stop observing how you handle each and every moment. Actually, scratch that. Just let those moments pass through you. You’ll find yourself less stressed, I promise.

Well, another day another blog about nothing really. I hope my readers are still enjoying what I’m writing. I know I mentioned I’d like to move to a weekly blog post schedule, but this is now part of my routine. I’m sure I’ll break from it at some point… but not quite yet.

Time to go eat some steak and shrimp with my Ma.

I wish you well. Try not to beat the shit out of yourself.

  1. Your physical discipline is immense and commendable. I really need to start jogging or going for a walk regularly. I always say I will but…you know the drill. In any case, I’m glad to hear that your physical activities are helping you to get through all the things that pop into your head. When I used to go to the gym and run on the treadmill, my head was always so clear and things were so peaceful in those moments. Hopefully, your match goes well. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Tash – thank you for the kind words. Boxing and physical activity were the main drivers for me to get sober from pain pills, actually. Being active can mean so very much.

      I hope you’re able to find your love for running/jogging/walking again. It’s always a great addition to the day.

      And as for the match, it may sound overly confident, but I have no worry there. I’ve never trained like this before a match and I feel so very good in the ring right now. Both mentally and physically. Now if I could get that mental aspect to transfer out of the ring… haha.

      Thanks for your comment, Tash! Enjoy your day 🙂

      1. Sobriety can be incredibly difficult to deal with. You’re so open and honest and it’s incredibly refreshing. I hope you have the systems in place or are developing those systems to keep on the right track. It seems like you’re definitely moving somewhere positive, even if there are dips.

        Those are the joys of being human. Dips are just a part of the process.

        You sound so ready for your match and I’m sure your hard work will translate during it. You seem to be working hard on yourself mentally so that’ll translate eventually. Keep your head up.

        Take care of yourself🙃

      2. Tash –

        Sobriety is difficult but luckily for me I’ve been able to hit the 10-year mark and have no desire to ever go back. I hated that guy, haha.

        I love your comments! I’ll always be open here. I hope you keep tagging along for the ride. Enjoy your day, Tash, and stay in touch! 🙂
