Hopefully you’re keeping well and you’ve achieved your goals this year as 2017 is drawing to a close. The last few years have made me realise that although individual workdays can be painfully long the months and years vanish so rapidly. Therefore we should appreciate the time we have left on this planet. 🙂
Are you planning to take it easy for the last quarter or do you have greater things in mind? I’d like to hear about your thoughts regardless.
Outside running this blog, lifting weights and going to work I’m also trying to improve my diet, and I’m glad to say *touchwood* that things could actually be working out this time. As long as I bulk up my meals with an appropriate variety of vegetables or fat then I actually feel satiated whilst simultaneously maintaining a calorie deficit relatively effortlessly. The last four times I tried to restrict my caloric intake to 1,800 resulted in me binge-eating chocolate, pizza, ice-cream and donuts the next few weeks…I often wonder if I have an undiagnosed mild(?) eating disorder as I was miserably counting every calendar day on the bloody diets.
However on this attempt I’m already finishing day 6 of clean eating and I feel great, energetic and my “heavy” compound lifts haven’t suffered that much. More importantly I have NOT been counting the days; well I just did there but it was for you guys. If I succeed to make this a lifestyle change I promise to dedicate an entire post to this but let’s not speak too soon.
Q3 Quarterly Passive Income Report 2017
|Q3 2017 Total||£1,106.20|
Although month-to-month P2P income is falling due to defaulted loans I did say I’d be your willing guinea pig before this investment modality fully establishes itself. Otherwise it’s been another great quarter as I’ve achieved over four figures whilst minimising the costs as much as possible.
I also passed advanced life support several weeks ago and would like to stop here to discuss a quick concept that modern thinkers call mindfulness.
All my readers are demographically very highly educated individuals but we fall into the same trap that a greyhound does when it chases the robot rabbit. We never stop and admire what we’ve achieved but instead we fall into the self-destructive spiral that is self-deprecation and always trying to attain the next level. The latter quality is a great one to have, make no mistake, but it doesn’t hurt to celebrate mini-successes however small does it?
Have you recently achieved something but neglected to celebrate it? Admit it, those of you who have passed MRCP Part 1 just recently never properly celebrated did you? And I bet those who failed were the first to kick themselves…yep been there.
