Everyday NhanSense – Day 38

Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 38’s Topic: Pushing one’s body past that certain threshold.
Gee whiz, it’s like all of the pain and exhaustion I should have felt is catching up to my body all at once. My body is really feeling the aches now. That’s for sure.

At the same time, I have no real choice but to tough it out. And I intend to regardless. It’s not like my body is unraveling or anything, but it’s definitely experiencing some sort of discomfort. I went from having zero hours of work per week to at least full-time hours each week … with about one whole day off thrown into the mix.

There isn’t a lot of rest between each day, so maybe I am just overworking my body as it’s trying to get accustomed to this new routine?

Gosh, I can at least say without a shadow of a doubt that my body has gotten stronger. I have grown sturdier over the years. I used to have trouble working full days multiple times throughout a given week, but I feel like I can keep up this pace if I really put my mind to it.

I mean that it was like really rough for my body. I would often have nosebleeds after my shift because I exerted so much energy. Not anymore, it seems.

And that’s a good thing.

You think about how a typical adult is supposed to act, where they do that 9-5 spiel each day with perhaps the weekend off. And this is for the regular adult with a normal job, as they would call it.

There isn’t a lot of wiggle room to deviate from this pattern. But hey. Whatever pays the bills, right?

Once I start getting some more money saved in the bank, I can at least prepare myself for the near future. At the moment, earning cash is extremely important for my situation, so I need to work these long hours.

I can handle it. I am more resilient than I was from a few years ago. Man … I was such a wimp a few years back. I could maybe work three or four days a week, and anything beyond that was pushing it.

Such a shame. I feel like the current me would run circles over the previous me, the one who was more interested in having day offs to play video games than working more to earn a bit more cash on payday.

Ack. There it is. Another “crack” sound from my back as I type this out.

Oh well. It just makes sleeping at night a lot more wonderful when I have had a backbreaking experience.

But as the expression goes … No pain, no gain.

I am certainly feeling some types of pain here and there, but I know everything is gonna be fine once my body adapts. I want to get physically stronger anyway.

Time to tough it out!

    I love the feeling of pushing myself at work. Say, 7 8-hour days in a row or an 11 hour-long shift at a busy festival. But I guess such struggles don’t cause as much worry when you’re working for pocket change rather than to support yourself. It’s almost a hobby, even, haha.

    But I know for sure that coming back to work after a brutal week, having had even one day off… It feels great. Or, at least, it doesn’t bother you as much as it used to! ‘Cuz your body’s become stronger. God willing, one day, you won’t even be coming home tired anymore. So enjoy your coma-like rest while you can!

    Just make sure you rest as hard as you work =) All the exercise in the world won’t help if you don’t let yourself recover.
