Well, we are almost at the end of January. My initial resolve was to take part in the 365 Project and post on the same theme for a whole year. I chose motivation but quickly realised that I’d bore myself, let alone my readers, if I posted up about that for a WHOLE YEAR!! So, I decided to adapt the idea and post on the same topic for a month. I also allowed myself not to post every day. I pretty much abandoned the 365 Project in fact!
Anyway, I have, more or less, posted motivationally themed stuff throughout January, I think, and I intend to end with a summary of how my own motivation has helped me to keep up my fitness training and started all the other things I said I would do.
Or rather, that WAS the intent
Unfortunately, I’ve just returned from a slap up meal of Tapas with copious amounts of wine and I really feel a bit of a fraud talking about how determined I am to eat healthily and keep fit.
Although I did go to a personal training session at the gym this morning. AND I have been walking regularly. AND…and this is the bestest AND….I have joined a burlesque dancing class. So far, I’ve only been to the taster session but I’ve signed up for the full six weeks. It’s so much fun! The challenge for me is how to look alluring whilst trying to follow the steps. Not quite there yet but I’m hopeful! Anyway, I highly recommend it as a fun way to exercise.
And, joking apart, I am really enjoying my exercise, whatever form it takes.
The Italian classes are great fun too, not too hard but I’m learning new stuff. It’s fun doing the class with KD who has a fantastic accent and we practise our new words during the week so I fully expect to be fluent by the end of the course (well, I hope to be able to order wine and food at least. Or just the wine even….).
As for the other projects I had intended to pick up on, well, the photography is slow. The weather has been poor and I have yet to find the subject that inspires me….but I will. I am a frustrated photographer.
I have not done any more drawing and I have totally forgotten about the needlecraft apart from a brief spell (one evening) where I got out the knitting needles for half hour.
Still, it’s only January. Eleven more months to achieve my goals!
I have decided to make my theme for February ‘Love’.
Not sure what I’ll post yet but isn’t that the beauty of it all?
