I talked in a recent post about having to do something I hate doing. That thing would be scheduling my time. I’m much more of a fly by the seat of your pants kinda guy.
As soon as I put something on a schedule, I feel like I have to do it and then I don’t want to do it. For any of you who follow Gretchen Rubin’s work, my tendency is a rebel.
This makes it very painful to create a schedule for myself. I just feel like smashing my head against a wall as soon as I make one. I’m working on a solution that lets me at least loosely schedule my time without making me feel like I’ve just thrown myself in a cage.
Scheduling Not So Much
So far I haven’t had much success. I think step number one is going to be eliminating anything that doesn’t absolutely have to be done. And not getting lost in the million tasks that daily living generates. Part of the reason I do that is I just have too much stuff.
HA HA HA maybe I need to schedule a couple hours one day to just throw a bunch of crap away! Really though the major thing I need to make sure I get in is meal prep and time for movement every day.
Meal prep is probably just going to have to be all done one day on the weekend. My movement time though has mostly been climbing for a couple years. Unfortunately, I’ve reached a level of climbing that requires me to supplement to avoid muscle imbalances.
My movement time is just going to have to become part of my morning routine instead of whenever I can squeeze it in. I know some of you are laughing at me right now and thinking, “of course you should do that!” But I hate scheduling anything so I have to force myself into a routine and usually really resent it. I often have to force myself even to go climbing, even though I always have a good time once I get there. Even so it’s usually a fight with myself.
This weekend is extra so hopefully, I can get my crap together and get rolling on my long avoided schedule!
