I recently just came back from a vacation trip from Japan, and like most people, I had a lot of fun at the expense of some of my discipline. Although I tried to maintain as much as I could by trying to get a workout in whenever I could, eating more healthy foods, as well as eating less unhealthy foods. But to tell the truth, I still had fun, and was liberal with my routines. I woke up late, drank a lot more than usual, and just had fun. What’s the point of a vacation if you’re not going to live a little, right?
But the point is to always get back on track. So this post will be my attempt in doing so.
I have a two month period of free time, and I want to use these two months to achieve as much as possible. I have set a couple goals for myself to give me purpose for the 2 months. And they are…
- Do a split
- Be as fit as a pro-fighter
- Learn 10 Kanji characters(Chinese characters used in the Japanese Language) 5-6 days a week
- Make more higher quality videos
That is just the start. As I progress throughout these 2 months, I am sure that I will find more that I want to do along the way, but for now this is what I want to achieve.
Now… to make the daily routine to help me achieve these goals.
I plan to wake up early at 5:30 am. This is just a mental goal I want to achieve, and it just makes me feel like a productive bad-ass.
Stretch in the morning. I want to stretch for at least 15 minutes. Warm up, and get into my split stretch protocols as well as some basic mobility work.
After that, I want to get a work out in. I should start with a small run, do some jump rope, and do a main workout of Olympic ring work or weight lifting. Then I will finish with some shadow boxing.
After which I will get eat a healthy breakfast. A vegetable shake and maybe some multi-grain cereal. And then onto the Kanji Characters.
After getting the kanji characters done, I will write a blog post, or at least work on a draft.
And finally, after all that is through, I will work on a video draft, and try to get something filmed, or prepare to film a video.
And in the midst of all this, try to hang out with friends during the process.
So the basic schedule of my daily life will look like this.
- 5:30 AM Stretch/Workout
- 6:30 AM Breakfast
- 7:00 AM Kanji
- 7:30 AM Blog Post
- 8:15 AM Youtube Brainstorming
- 8:15 AM- 11 PM Get Shit Done and End with another Stretching session
And throughout the day, I will probably plug in 2 more workouts, and shadow boxing sessions. But I think the morning is the most important part of the day, because it will outline how the rest of your day will proceed.
So let’s get it.
