Walking uphill

I will move fast/I will move slow/Take me where I have to go

I’ve been struggling to find time to get back into programming. Life has gotten really busy for me. I was really sick for a week after Easter and I’m still struggling to get my health back to 100%. I need to prioritise taking care of myself so I get better faster.
I’ve downloaded the book “How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python” by Allen Downey to help get me back on track. The python challenges are good, but I’m too worried about accidentally finding a solution to seriously google the challenges. So I’m going to try and get a good base understanding of python before moving forward with the challenges.
I’ve just completed working through Chapter 2. I’m really enjoying how this books takes me back to basics and it is in a readable format and is an interesting easy read.
Another book I’m looking at is Dive into Python by Mark Pilgrim. The following page has a lot of links to different books which are available.

Basically, my biggest problem is real life gets in the way of coding. I have to prioritise the time for coding if I want to improve.
