More on My Exercise Situation

I posted yesterday about exercise versus project completion. Thank you for the comments. I'm glad I'm not alone. The good news is that I am not a sedentary person either. Every few months, I usually start to get hungry for exercise. And even over the past month (while I've had my paper looming largely), I've gone hiking and walking a few times. It's not as vigorous as routine (by any stretch) as my jogging/gymming days, but it's something. As mentioned though, I am trying NOT to get into a routine odd as that sounds...for fear of getting obsessive about it.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend!

  1. You know, in the past I have done exactly the same thing as you, and I totally understand it. Every time I have a huge project, everything else in my life screeches to a halt. Including exercise. Even if I could fit it in, time wise, I can't muster up the mental energy to add one more thing to my list of "to-dos". I need to focus exclusively on the task at hand. Like you are doing now.

    This was not so great for me last summer, when I was so busy all summer long with work, one big project after another. I basically quit exercising for 3 months.

    So I have another big brief coming up from mid-May to mid-June, and it is going to take up all of my mental space and time. I am going to try, however, to get out and exercise anyway. See if I can change my own pattern.

    Good luck with your paper - it is truly the most important thing right now, and exercise will always be there when you are ready!
