My Telkom lines are down = no telephones and NO ADSL! Who cares about the phones, it's the internet that's killing me... Me who struggles so much with electronic comms. No emails, no quickly looking something up on the net, and my life feels like it has come to a halt, I never realised just how dependant I was!
That AND a dodgy cell phone!
This all happened yesterday. Only a good old ADHDer could let himself slip into such a hole! The Telkom stuff stops working, so I get onto my trusty old cell only to find that the piece of useless, cheap, crap won't work properly. AHHHHH!
I pushed my training so hard through the beginning of last week and over the weekend that I had to rest for 2 days, and that's the trouble. I'm not working to a schedule; there is not enough structure to my life.
I need to program and schedule so that I know where I am, what I'm supposed to be doing on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. (Hello! I'm the Fitnessman after all! I train people and do this with them all the time.)
But for me (or all ADHDers?) I need to combine exercise and the rest of my activities into a master plan that lets me know what and where I should be all the time. Is this typical or am I just stupid?
That's the lesson! I don't know if that is what works for ADHDers in general but it works for me. The more I train, the more I plan and "habitulise" my life, the smoother it runs. When things change and I start adlibbing, then the wheels come off.
The 3 challenges
If there is anyone who reads this who:-
1. Is not doing any exercise but wants to start... contact me, just to talk about it and I'll get you sooo motivated.
2. Is exercising but needs guidance, contact me and we'll talk about where you want to go and how to get there.
3. Lives in the Milnerton, Tableview area of Cape Town, contact me on 083 459 9318 just to chat!
It's so easy helping other people plan their lives, as an outsider I can see the priorities and make suggestions that are totally logical. I can see things that my clients can't because they are too close to the problem. Now I'm the client and I can't see my problems, help!
There I go, calling for help again, just like the start of this blog! I'm pathetic!!!
I need a hug!
