This is probably going to be my last entry of 2018.

I’ve been really slack on Freeletics these past few weeks. This time I really don’t have any excuses. I’ve been lazy or hungover for most of December and also unwilling to get cold, blah blah… Been feeling guilty. I did do one Coach work out last week that was kind of okay, but I think I’ve been kind of waiting for the end of the year to restart everything.

And so yesterday I redid the assessment to end the current coach week I was stuck in. And low and behold, it presented Hell Week as my next Coach week.

The thing is, it’s Boxing Day today and I’m on holiday until the 3 January when I fly to New York for a 10 days for work (which will mean working into the evening/social events etc). All of which isn’t very inclusive to doing Hell Week properly. I won’t have a pullup bar etc. So I’ve decided to do some low intensity workouts over the next week to get myself back into it before tackling Hell Week on my return from NYC. Today I did Rhea, which was quick and easy.


And as the year draws to a close, I’m reflecting on how well I’ve been at sticking to my habits/goals.

Here are my goals for the year, and how I did:

Take four weeks’ holiday – FAIL (although I did take three, which is better than usual)
Visit a continent I’ve never been to before – FAIL
Pay off my credit card debt – FAIL
Read 26 books – I read five 😦
Have four days per week when I don’t drink – I managed at least two days every week
Do Freeletics at least three times per week – on average I managed 2 times per week
Inbox zero every week day – there were 21 working days when I didn’t do this, which I think it pretty good!
Swim once per week – I did this 39 times
Eat 5 fruit and veg per day – 188 times over the year
Drink 3 litres of water – usually managed this

There were also a few other work-related ones which won’t mean anything to you.

So, a mixed bag.

Over the next couple of days I’m going to set my goals for the coming year and I’ll let you know what they are.

For any productivity nerds out there, I’ve just switched from the Momentum app to ‘Done’, which is a lot more pleasing and flexible. Looking forward to using it in 2019 to track my habits.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Krios

In my last post I talked about ‘getting back to it’. That was almost a month ago. And to be honest not much has happened since then. Eek. I’ve been feeling tired and wintry and unmotivated. I haven’t even been swimming. I have been away for two weekends, but you know, #noexcuses…

I work from home on Friday so I made myself exercise first thing. It wasn’t too hard, but the workout included 2x Krios. I’ve said this before, but the first time I did this I gave myself a star and did it in about 11 minutes. It seems that there’s no option on the Freeletics app now to beat your previous time rather than your PB, but maybe I’m wrong. Anyway, it took much longer than 11 minutes and I was still doing assisted pullups.

So I worked out twice last week. Going to aim for four times this week so that I’ll have done six workouts over two weeks. Also going to make sure I swim too.

And then it’s almost Christmas. Which will be tough. And then a new start for 2019.
