    Yes, we are complicated and full of contradictions.


    But you'll find your way, and maybe it's a combination of both!

    Another session of Elements yesterday.

    Football last night.

    I'm enjoying being freeform.

    It might be that logging, targets, programmes and structure just isn't for me.

    Then again.

    It might be that it is!

    Humans are complicated.

    Have lovely days my friends. x

    Jogging along fairly well.

    On Tuesday I quit twitter and did as much as I could to block it. So far, so good. I'm already better for it.

    Generally the usual sort of routine with walking and a tai qi class yesterday.

    Today I felt full of energy and did:

    a 2.5-mile run.
    The first session of Elements again.
    A tai qi warm up and some practice exercises.
    A 6.5-mile walk
    Al Kavadlo 5 b5y 5 for beginners

    It's lovely to feel like this.

    I've sort of self-diagnosed myself with some sort of ADHD.

    I know doing this via a few YouTube videos is very silly. But every description I heard or read from people with ADHD caused a major shock of recognition in me. I'm not going to try to get an official diagnosis and I'm not going to seek out any treatment.

    I remain a bit dubious about the balance between diagnosing such conditions and looking at the way the world is and how it accepts people who encounter it in different ways.

    However, this might be a useful framework for finding help and coping strategies for some of my obsessive/compulsive behavious, which are themselves sort of coping strategies.

    Exercise is definitely one of them.

    On we go. x

    Thank you, PSW, and Nancy.

    I've done the Daily Dares yesterday and today, to try to get back into some habits.

    And walked up a big hill last night.

    Oh yeah, I remember you already mentioned it was your "sober anniversary" - well like my heart-versary, those other anniversaries are very important! Keep up, day after day, that walk in life.

    Thank you all so very much!

    June 1st isn't my real birthday, it's my sober birthday. This year it marked my 8th year since last drinking alcohol.

    I was thinking of this today. I'm off my routine somewhat. And would like to get back onto it. Not sure how, but I'm sure I'll find a way. I've injured my shoulder - largely by sleeping on it badly I think.

    I'm still playing football once a week generally. Generally doing at least one tai ji class a week.

    I'm trying - again - to escape some of my internet addictions. We'll see.

    Thank you again. I hope to speak to you all soon.
