I started this challenge on January 23rd, making today day four. I haven’t cracked once since I started it, but it sure hasn’t been easy. I seek out distractions when my brain gets tired of focusing on one thing and it’s been interesting to notice just how often that really is. That said, I thinkContinue reading “Web reading challenge: day 4”
Mornings are when I expect to have my most difficulty with this web reading challenge I’m doing. I tend to spend a lot of time in the mornings settling into the day reading this stuff. I didn’t have any trouble at all this morning. Haven’t even been tempted. Stopping myself from clicking certain things byContinue reading “Web reading challenge: morning one”
I’ve made a rash decision I’ll probably hate tomorrow, but I’ve decided to give up infotainment for a while—indefinitely would be better.

Some of it’s working out pretty well. Some of it isn’t. Here are the details. The no sweets experiment is goingContinue reading “Experiments update”
I’ve kept to my plan to take ibuprofen today in advance of the headache I’m worried about, and so far, it’s paid off. I had a really fuzzy feeling just before, during, and after lunch, but I tried to nap at 12:30, but I never drifted off, got back to work, stared at the screenContinue reading “Fuzzy feeling but no headache—yet”
I’m really disappointed in myself right now. A couple of things happened that stopped me from returning to my work at 1 pm today, one of those being a headache. That’s a legitimate issue, but in all truth, I should have worked through it. I needed to work through it. I know what was toContinue reading “July 11: follow up & the decision to go all in”
