    I've previously been on this site and have lapsed back into old habits. Time to get back on here and humbly admit to myself that going on without a plan has not been a fruitful track.

    My old thread: 7 days is all she wrote...

    I find making some long term and short term goals helpful.

    Near to Long Term Goal: I've got an important interview in September that will require much studying and preparation that I'll need my mental energy and focus before, during, and after the interview. To obtain that clarity, I'll need to eliminate the porn, masturbation, and alcohol and replace these with meditation, exercise, and healthy nutrition.

    Having a weekly plan with goals has been very helpful to me. Goals to achieve this week:
    • 7 days P-free
    • 7 days no alcohol
    • 7 days meditation, 20 minutes
    • 3 days Crossfit
    • 2 days Running

    I gotta admit. I was hesitant to hit the "Submit" button on that intro message. My sinister side was telling myself, "Let me go out tonight and have one last drink, one last hoorah with the Porn. Then, you'll be ready to start tomorrow or maybe next week." But I've already delayed this project long enough and the cycle will only perpetuate itself.

    Week 1

    I wasnt ready to start this challenge, but start it I must. Goal review:
    • 7/7 days P-free. This has been a big improvement. No time was lost being mired away watching streaming porn.
    • 4/7 days no alcohol. This has been the toughest goal to keep as having a drink here and there is such a part of my life.
    • 5/7 days meditation, 20 minutes. No excuse for missing this one. Must do this in the morning.
    • 3 days Crossfit. First time doing Crossfit 3 times in a week.
    • 2 days Running. Training for a marathon and running twice a week is the bare minimum.
    Goals for Week 2:
    • 7 days P-free
    • 5 days no alcohol
    • 7 days meditation, 20 minutes
    • 3 days Crossfit
    • 2 days Running

    Week 2:

    Reminder to myself as to why I am doing this. I have a very important job interview in a little over 3 weeks. I need all the focus and clarity I can muster to study, prepare, and execute with quality on the interview. Two weeks down and things have been clearing up.
    • 7/7 days P-free. Feels like my libido is severely dampened. Three weeks ago I couldnt think straight due to a high libido. Now, not much.
    • 6/5 days no alcohol. Some heavy drinking on Friday night. Took me out of commission for about 16 hours. Something to just eliminate.
    • 7/7 days meditation. 20 minutes. With porn and alcohol consumption reduced, this has become easier to fulfill.
    • 1/3 days Crossfit. Irregular sleep schedule made me miss a couple of sessions of xfit.
    • 3/2 days Running. With a marathon coming up in a few months, I need to stay on track with my training schedule.
    Minus the miss of the crossfit, it's been a good week. Also had a productive weekend of studying.

    Goals for week 3:
    • 7 days P-free
    • 5 days no alcohol
    • 7 days meditation, 20 minutes
    • 3 days Crossfit
    • 2 days Running
