How am I feeling?
I have some energy left, which is nice, but I’m feeling a bit scared of my own lack of fitness and lack of willpower. I hope I can keep up this little burst of motivation and use it to break some habits and form some habits over the next few weeks! Once I get going it should be easier to keep going. I’m slightly bummed I didn’t hit 10,000 steps but it is getting late and my FitBit needs to be charged so I am calling today successful and choosing not to be ridiculous about it.
Although it is fun to be ridiculous sometimes.
