Nothing beats winning a tournament!
I’m a day late! But let’s go over what went on in August:
My last month off social media
163 days since starting at AwesomeMotive & AffiliateWP
Published my first Release (2.9.6) of AffiliateWP (yesterday)!
Won my first tournament since moving to Albuquerque
August was a pretty great month, as you can see!
My Stoic practices have been taking a back seat for months, though, now. I haven’t been getting up early in the morning, haven’t been studying, etc. I haven’t liked it, but I also haven’t really been motivated to change anything. One of these months I will get back into things again. The previous months before have been extremely tough, so much so that I just felt exhausted working on my Stoic-spiritual side of my life. Between kids, marriage, work, etc I just put Stoicism to the side and just left it there.
Since starting my next three-month challenge to not eat out for 3-months, it has been going well. I cheated twice since. Once because I needed to eat during a Tennis tournament, and another time because I literally forgot! But, since doing it I haven’t had many changes in my fitness, etc. But, I have really got a great routine going at home for food, and it looks like this:
I have not been eating (fasting) until about 3pm for my first meal
That meal usually consists of:
Fish (or beef)
Veggie (usually asparagus or green beans)
I feel a lot fuller (I think it’s the rice) and it’s been helping me not eat too much in the evenings. Plus, I haven’t got bored of it yet.
I haven’t lost much weight (maybe ~4-6 lbs), but I’m only a month or so in.
The highlight of August though was finally winning a tournament with my partner Papo (next to me). We worked really hard and even have another tournament coming up this weekend for September! I’m not sure why I decided to wear that shirt haha!
