    Spacewalk

    This is basically my attempt at getting my life together. I'll be doing quite a lot of challenges from this site and I'll be combining them with some other workouts that I like. I'm my own biggest enemy and I tend to be lazy, so I'm starting small. The biggest challenge right now for me is consistency. The focus is to work out every day and eventually I'll be adding more and more programs.
    I came home from a work year on a ship in December, where I fell off track because of the COVID-19 restrictions onboard. I started going to the gym regularly from January to mid-March and then they shut down everything. Basically, I was allowed to go to work, eat, and back to my cabin, so I sort of lost my will to work out (you'll find this is a recurring theme for me). I tried doing some bodyweight workouts here and there, so I wasn't completely inactive. I came home and got infected with COVID, which took a toll on my body. I recovered mid-January, started going on slow and short walks, and eventually upgraded my workout plan to what I'm doing right now.
    This is just a quick explanation of where I am. I literally started this year from 0. There are periods of time when I work a lot, but I don't want that to be an excuse. If I don't have time for a 60 min training, I will find 15 mins to walk around the block. I'm turning it around. I'm also doing check-ins with 3 of my friends, which has been keeping me motivated for the past couple of weeks. I'm a filmmaker, so especially during production, I can neglect my well-being. I'm building my habits and lifestyle to integrate work, health, and personal life. (:

                  Welcome to the Hive, motionaction!

                  Looks like you've got a solid plan and some really great goals. Love what you said about having check-ins with some friends, that accountability/motivation can help so much!

                  Beautiful pictures! Seems like a great reward from the hike

                        Alright, thank you all for your very encouraging and kind words, this means the world to me. (:
                        This is my 13th consecutive day of fitness. I ran 3.82km today, as part of From Walking to Running. I combined run day and sprinting day.
                        I usually do evening runs throughout the city but I'll have to start doing it earlier because my country is entering another lockdown starting tomorrow. I'll only be able to workout in green spaces. I live next to a park so it's not a biggie, I only don't like going there when it's dark. Planning a nice jog for tomorrow. I had healthy meals today.

                            Had a pretty busy day today overall but I had a walk day anyway. Did a 5.15 km evening walk. I hit 15 consecutive workout days today, yaaay! (:
                            From tomorrow on, I'll be doing the 1-minute meditation challenge.
