A recap – I was taking a creative writing course from January through to a week ago. In the last class, the teacher asked about blogs, I ended up looking at mine and realized that I had some ok stuff on there. And I realized I hadn’t written on it for A YEAR!!! Wow.
So I’d like to restart.
I have been up to a lot of things this past year - most were internal but that's ok. That's good for me. You always need time to reflect and think and change and most importantly GROW.
This post will be a small one and the jist of the post is JUST START SOMETHING! Anything! But only ONE THING.
I need to start something because:
I have been lazy.
I have been injured.
I have been unmotivated.
I have been in my own bubble. ;-)
And here I am – quite a few added pounds and inches, a calf that hasn’t healed, possibly because I haven’t done as recommended (or something really bad is wrong with it), unmotivated because of those two things and I really really like my bubble (somehow it remains all good in this bubble of mine), lol. But I am looking for a change. Hence the JUST START SOMETHING! But only one thing. Anymore than that and it can be discouraging. Honestly, just start one thing. Pick it and do it. Let go of the list. The list is too big and discourages. It overwhelms.
A very good and knowing friend gave me this little keepsake which sits on my bedside table. Today it is very fitting.
My starting point is I am going for a swim. Swimming is a great all-over-body exercise. It will start me on the path to activity with very low injury possibility. It is non-impact. I did a super small 50m jog while on a walk with Blue the other night and found that the next day my calf injury was still there (because somehow I really thought that ignorance was bliss) and just slightly nagging at me. So obviously there is truly something wrong with it. So running is not the answer right now. So I will swim. That is it. Well, that and some strengthening exercises I was already supposed to be doing. Shhhhhh....
