Maybe I am making resolutions...

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Hey, this New Year seems to be panning out quite well already. I surprised myself yesterday, as despite not really sleeping Sunday evening – a combination of it being way to hot to sleep, excitement for getting back into the gym and back to work – I still got up at 5:30. Flip woke me and I tried to roll over and do the lazy thing, but eventually got up, got my gear and got my ass back in motion.

Exercising is one of my favourite things to do, I shit you not. While other people might meditate to have their quiet time, I jog. It’s like my inner being wakes up and gets ready for the day ahead. I get time to clear my head of negative thoughts and think of the things I can achieve every single day.

“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

And, it really is true that exercising in the morning gives you extra energy during the day. I am hardly ever tired during the day if I go to the gym before the first rooster’s crow. Can someone back me up here?

I’m hoping that I can keep this routine up during this year. I know, luckily, that I am not one of those New Year’s resolutions exercisers – I’ll keep at it, as long as my health prevails. Sinuses, you listen to me and you listen to me close, you will not be my downfall this year! No thank you.

Meanwhile, during the days I wasn’t in bed with some sort of ailment during the holiday season, Flip and I ventured out to interesting and fun places. I like to call it our staycation and will soon share of the spaces and places we saw. For now, I like writing. I want to focus on writing this year. Perhaps I might even have a book by December 31, 2014. I just have to get myself to sit down and physically write the ideas I have, but all too often, I am too lazy to get up. Most of my ideas come when I’m falling asleep, or in the shower.

The other day, just before entering the land of nod, I thought up a story about a woman named Ingrid Spencer. She was pregnant, but wasn’t having a ball of a time about it. I should’ve penned that down. Maybe I am making resolutions after all.

So resolutions: write a book; or at the very least pen down thoughts; have breakfast every single day so I can have a clear mind and be more healthy because of it; drink more water; love more; take my dogs for walks. I’m resolutionised.

Well done you!!! I have a love/hate relationship with exercise. Some days I love but other days I am lazy!!
Good luck with the writing

I have to back you up on the exercise thing and more energy! It's amazing, endorphin at work.

I'm waiting for an ankle injury to heal so I can get back to my 2 favourite things - step and spinning.

Your "resolutions" are attainable

Good on you Meg, always good to be open minded about these things in life that we cannot control - listening to your body is the best (and only) way!

I am quite a resolution person - I love the new year, the 1st of each month and Mondays but I am also a huge procrastinator!!
