It has now been 31 whole days since I started this blog. I saw on Instagram or Facebook or somewhere how people were doing #365 projects, (there you go, it must be Instagram cos of the hashtag), and I decided to give it a go. I tried on Instagram, taking a pic every day of which book I was reading...well that lasted approximately a week. I like reading, and in fact usually have a couple of books on the go. And I love taking pics, so I thought that would work. Turns out, I am not too fond of taking pics of books I am reading.
This on the other hand stuck.
It hasn't been hard, but I haven't tried too hard. Most posts have only been a few lines, and occasionally a pic or two.
I think next month I will try putting a little bit more thought into my posts, not for any particular reason, other than, I have stuck it a month so why not?
Another thing I have stuck for a whole month is the gym. I am proud of this fact. I very rarely stick at anything, it is far easier to just sit on the sofa and watch TV rather than going to the gym and working out. I still don't know what put it in my head that I should do it, I have thought about it before, but that's all I did. Thought about it. I never did anything about it.
This time I didn't think. I went to the gym and paid my money the first night. The second night I went. And it was hard. It was very hard.
The most I had done previous to this was walking home from work, slowly. And at the gym they expected me to actually break a sweat. I came home that night complaining that I didn't want to go again. It was hard and I just didn't like it. However I had paid my money, so I didn't want to waste it. So I went back. Again. And again. And again.
I wouldn't say I like it now either. But I don't hate it as much. And it feels really good walking out of the gym afterwards, knowing that I stayed on the stepper just that little bit more, or survived the Zumba class without collapsing.
Its true what they say. Your body gets used to working out quite quickly. I can do things now that I wouldn't have dreamed of a month ago. And it is making my dreams bigger. I want to lose more. I want to get fitter. I want to be able to run marathons. (Ok that's going a wee bit too far, but you get my point)
If I can do it, you can do it.
What do you want to do? Make a decision and do it. Don't let that little voice in your head tell you that you can't do it. You can!!
