Back on the Exercise Wagon
Wednesday, February 23, 2011
Inspired by this 100 day challenge that I saw while perusing through the Internet, I decided to start a group on Facebook called the 100 day challenge. I have an issue with social avoidance some days. I think it's pretty seasonal or weather related because on days that mock the stereotype of "depression", my mood is heavy and sunny days like today are inspiring.
I made two of my personal goals already: weight loss and anxiety reducing techniques. I want to add more but I want to see how these work out for the time being. I know that I'm not going to be super skinny in 100 days or some big social butterfly all over again but I figured this is a great boost in spirits and to get myself motivated. It's day two since the group has been up and there's 20 + people there so far. Hopefully most of the people will actively respond in the group...well see what happens.
Today, I managed to work out for 1.5 hours on the Wii Active and strength training. I'm going to push for a run/jog later on if I can to soak in some of the cold weather mixed with the sun for some inspiration. I suppose it will reduce my anxiety with a decent amount of outside air. Then, I'll prepare myself for day two of my trial run for this potential new job at a clinical Chinese Medicine Office/Spa that I'm working at. If I land this job, it may be a sign that this is my motivation. Perhaps, I need a positive surrounding all day long.
My house is very positive but if I can work in a soothing, aromatherapy atmosphere, perhaps, this is my calling. Besides, my kitchen is always my safe space when I get home....just need a healthy balance for my safe space.
So glad that day one of 100 challenge is almost complete. I feel new already, :)
