Today was a flop. I've got excuses in my head but I'm not even going to pay them any mind. One positive is that I still managed to get myself outside with the intention of trying. Kind of pumped for tomorrow as I know I'll need to go in hard if I want to stay on track for this weeks goal.

Asking for the time & directions is fine but I feel weird with the have you been there. It doesn’t feel natural (I know it doesn’t have to) but I keep bailing.

I’ve got ~3 hours today for drills so I hope to come back this evening with some good news.

Work's been murder so I've hardly put in any time.

I've changed my minimum daily action from just getting outside to asking for the time which I've been keeping up. Today I was lacking motivation and just wanted to chill but I managed to get myself out and asked for the time to about 8 different girls. Now, just need to stay in the execution mindset and say the rest of the lines and day 6 is done.

Kind of neglected doing anything aside from my bare minimum these past few days to spend time with friends. I don't really read/watch the news but I know there are new measures coming in for COVID tomorrow so I thought I'd make the most of seeing everyone whilst I could. Really wanted to have a quiet Sunday and literally lay under the covers watching films but I thought fuck that & fuck a normal life so I got myself out after getting some inspiration from Andy, The Beast & Mr Qs logs.

I wasn't feeling confident at all when I first came out so I basically just repeated day 5 over and over again. Asked about 30 women for the time and realised that just having fun with it makes it sooooo much easier. I've been going about it all wrong in my head, thinking I need to find the women least likely to reject me but once I turned it into a game for myself I found I was enjoying myself without caring about the answers. I was looking at people and saying she's 100% going to say no then be surprised when she gave me the time. Also, I adapted Andy's 10 min rule further for every rep. Could I get one rep in 10? Yes, okay restart timer can I get 2? Yes, reset again. My record was 4 in 10 minutes. I did go into a busier part of the city to test but just being there got me in my head.

Definitely want to carry the same vibe into tomorrow and going forward. Back onto day 6.

I keep forgetting to post daily to keep myself accountable (or rather I'm sick & tired of not having any good updates to post to say I've made progress). I'm unsure as to what my perversion to "Have you been there is" but it's just not coming out. Even when the girl is still standing there, I'm not saying have you been there? but more so you've been there (as a statement) then thanks. Back out after work (workload is starting to get out of hand. Might put in a couple of extra hours early in the weekend to stay on top of it).

@The Beast You better fucking get outside and do day 11. I'm trying to catch up but I'm using your videos for inspiration.

I know what you mean mate, I'd still say post everyday even if you don't manage to get approaches in. That way you're less likely to go too hard on yourself and potentially go missing for a few days/weeks because you don't feel like you have anything positive to report back with. Plus if you're updating here every day you're more committed to your self improvement journey as a whole, not just the AA programme. Also, are you lifting? That's always been a big help for me if I ever feel like I'm not progressing in an another area, at least I'm still able to push myself physically.

Nothing done but except a few times and directions. Wasn’t happy with that so decided to come out again late and I’m currently in a bar alone. My cousin is around local and said he’ll join me but just sitting at a table is weird af.

Sorry bro @The Beast thought I'd replied. Yeah, you're right. I'm going to have to force (for lack of a better word - sounds so aggressive/like a regime) to be more accountable by posting every day. I don't lift (as in go to the gym), never been a fan of gyms so I do callisthenics using gymnast rings (I'll post my workout/set up in my other log this evening). Haven't been as consistent lately, as I tried switching to working out in the early mornings so I could do the AA program in the evening but work kept getting in the way and I would always oversleep so I'd have to skip a workout. I'm switching back to evening workouts which in turn means I have to execute quicker when I get outside as I have less time in the evening.

Update from Friday night - talked to a few girls, all were friendly. Pussied out of asking for numbers and instead went for Snapchats.

Update from Saturday - Didn't do anything as I went to Football from midday to about 6 and went for food after with some friends. Told them that next week I'm coming late as it really does cut into any plans I have for a Saturday. If I go from 2-5 and aim to do drills from 10-1.30 I won't feel as bad.

Looking to go out today but I'm absolutely shattered and I broke my 25-day no-fap streak so my body is in that weird limbo stage I get where I'm not thinking clearly and everything feels like it requires a whole load of effort. Think I'll borrow a boris bike and use that to get around so I don't have to walk as much.

Nothing has been done since the last post. Been in a shit headspace, making excuses & shitty weather. Went on a date with a girl from Tinder. Skimmed the date section from the Tinder guide & the only negative I would say is that I didn't invite her back. Still had fun though & I'd be down to see her again. Mental masturbation type question but when should I reach out again to set up another date?

Motorcycle licence training tomorrow & Tuesday but I'm trying to jump to get at least an hour outside for drills. My leeway in terms of time-limit is basically gone now so I need to put in some hard hours to meet my deadline.

2/5 sets of day 6 done. I was out in the rain all day and by the time I started I was already fed up with it but I managed to get some done.

Nothing done today. First day back to work since last week and I hardly felt like I did anything productive. Tried to spend some extra time trying to catch up but I haven’t even made a dent. Going to have a man early night so hopefully in the morning I can put in some time.

Defo going out tomorrow to do something though. Chris said you can’t have more than two days off in a 10 day period.

Felt like I regressed back down again. Went out yesterday (in the rain) but could only get the time, not even fucking directions. I've got a weeks worth of holiday in reserve and feel I might use them to get a solid week of drills in. 9-5 type thing. Kinda scared that I'll waste it by not executing though.
