How I Blew April

April was an incredibly unproductive month in my projects. I wrote just one track all month–one ambient track that took me almost half an hour. All the reasons I come up with for not writing music on the train are all lame. I’m just lazy.

Of the 30 days in April, I completed my CrossFit workouts on only nine occasions. I skipped 13 official workout days. The idea behind the program is to do what you can, even if you have to substitute something. The idea is to work out for three days and take a day of rest—not work out for a day and take three days of rest. Fortunately, I am not totally pigging out anymore, so I didn’t gain any weight, although I do feel awfully soft.

It is really easy for me to slide back and fall into old habits, so I’d better nip this one in the bud, pull back from the PlayStation Portable in my satchel, and get some work done. Thankfully for my inactivity, it should be relatively quick to catch the Oracle back up. Musically, despite my low output in April, I’m still ahead for the year and on track to finish 52 tracks by the end of December.

I’m not going to beat myself up too much more over this. It’s more constructive just to pick myself up, dust myself off, and march on. Maybe I’ll write another ambient track on the train in the morning to take the edge off what will certainly be another incredibly taxing day.
