This is the face …


It might scare you a little, but this is the pink blushing face of someone who did some deliberate exercise after many, many months of laziness.

It might scare you a little, but this is the silly smile of someone who is feeling motivated and determined to grow some willpower.

It might scare you a little, but these are the buggy crossed shiny eyes of someone who is pleased with herself for eating well today.

Exercise Diary

A short cardio workout this evening plus walking to and from train today during my commute, and other incidental steps = 9,401 steps on my FitBit.

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.
