Broadening the workout horizon

Greetings all…

Earlier tonight I posted a blog about day 1 of 31 of my social media fast for the month of August. Part of the daily social media regimen is being an admin to the Facebook group, Apple Watch Fitness Fans. I usually post my daily exercise and workout results there, like many of the members there. Since I’m on sabbatical, I thought it would be the perfect time to start posting here again, like I used to.

I did a recent post that analyzed my exercise journey during the first six months of 2018. One of the things I learned from that is the types of exercises I tended to do the most (and least of). That said, I decided to create a balance, based on the results I found. Tonight (especially since it was late) I decided to do a functional workout, since I’d like to gain more core strength, It was a short one, but staying on this track consistently will help be balance the scales out.

Anyway, that’s it for now. Back soon.

Social Media Sabbatical (SMS): Day 1 – 01 Aug 18 – The Reasons

Greetings All.

Here we are again. Over the last month (particularly the latter half), I began to take stock of how much time I was spending time on social media and what the spent time is actually netting me and allowing me to move forward to achieve the goals (of many sorts) I’d like to achieve. In other words, what’s my return on investment (ROI)? In the grand scheme, I determined that ROI wasn’t amounting to as much as I’d it to be.

How did I come about that decision. I reached it in two ways. The first was noticing how many times each day I looked at wasn’t completed on my to-do list and the amount of times I complained that if I hadn’t spent the time posting, reading, and scrolling my social media haunts (primarily Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), I would have accomplished more on that list.

Sure some of that surfing/reading allowed me to gain some knowledge about some things that would benefit me now and in the future, BUT, it still left me lacking in the completion department.

That said, I decided to get off all three for the entire month of August (the exception being posting to Twitter with regards to the rules of the #100DaysOfCode campaign I’m involved in. My long time friend, fellow geek, and podcaster, DarrenKeith Wyatt, has vowed to take the same sabbatical with me, so I guess you can call us “accountability partners”.

We’ll see how far this thing takes us, day by day, in hopes of providing a true picture and realization of just how much spending time on social media (more importantly how you spend it) can affect (negatively or positively) the forward motion, productivity, and goal reaching you hope to attain

Thanks for the read.
