In 54 days, I cycle to Paris.
I have never been less ready for anything in my entire life. I am somewhat on top of my fundraising, but behindon fitness.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m comfortable in my skin.
I’m not, y’know, happy with how I look, but I’m comfortable. I like myself - I think I’m witty enough that I can get away with a little bit of flab. I don’t feel like I need to impress anyone with how I look at the moment.
I’m comfortable in my skin, and I think that’s what causes me to fall off the fitness band wagon so often. I forget the initial motivation and think “but I’m happy as I am”, rather than “I could be happier/healthier/live longer”.
But this time is different. This time there’s an obstacle to overcome.
I am not fit enough to cycle to Paris. But I will be in 54 days time at the latest. If you want to stick around for me to prove it, follow/continue to follow me.
I’m back on the bandwagon. I want to get fitter and this time I have a challenge. Starting photos etc to come.
T Minus 54.
Me and my skinny 2012 arms!
This is me at the end of the year.
My new years resolution, as I have already told you, is to be the fittest I’ve been in my life by the end of 2013.
It is not going well so far, but I have faith in myself.
This is a LONG TERM GOAL. I need LONG TERM SUPPORT. Will you help? :)
All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you’re not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you’re the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no’s become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES.
I got an anon asking for a picture of my face, so…
I was meant to work out tonight but I went to the pub instead because I haven’t gone out in a while. I only had a couple of pints though, so it’s not too bad.
Will definitely work out tomorrow, I promise.
As difficult as it can be to always push your limits, I will admit, it always feels so amazing to surpass your own goals. I set my limits high, even sometimes to a point that may be unreachable for myself on a given day, but I do my best and put in 100% effort every time. I would much rather…
On roughly 2 cans of diet coke a day, which is shit cause I was meant to have quit. But I mean, it’s still a step in the right direction from where I was. I might try and go down to 1 a day next week, then 1 every other day the week after, and go from there.
Had a good workout today. Think my arms will benefit from this new programme quite a lot.
Hope everyone else’s day was good, too :)
