Don’t laugh, today I did something that I normally only reserve for shopping sales and expiring parking metres…I ran. Uhuh. like lifting my feet off the ground and feeling all the jiggly and wobbly bits rockin and rollin. I freakin ran!
Let’s all calm down though, I don’t know that I’ll be doing any more running soon. It was fun while it lasted, oh who am I kidding…I am NOT built for running and it was excruciating and hard! My knees screamed, actually they were shrieking and I could feel all of my weight pounding through my joints and, well, I am reaaally heavy!
Since chemo my lungs and heart aren’t what they used to be and my meds mean I have the bone density of someone much, much older so I guess I need to be kinder to myself…and to my body.
Look, I’m trying to do better and make some changes in all areas of my life. These changes aren’t major changes, just small achievable changes. I’m planning to try some small changes every month and this month I’m committing to walking every day. Every single day for four weeks.
Today was the first day and I did it, I walked for half an hour and ran up and down the jetty. I nearly busted a lung with the running part so I’m going to stick with walking ok.
Instead of sitting at home and wishing I felt better and thinking about being fitter I decided to just start. In fact I’m even implementing a hashtag to go along with all my changes #stylingcurvyactivechange. Do you like it?
If you’re on Instagram (find me here) and implementing change in your life or would like to join in with my monthly changes then post a pic and use the hashtag #stylingcurvyactivechange.
Then we can all support each other.
The challenges won’t all involve active wear and exercise, some might be simply making my bed everyday, improving my skincare routine (which is pretty much non existent), doing more in the garden or eating more vegies. It’s about doing more of what I’ve been avoiding. Hopefully the small changes will lead to better habits, wouldn’t that be ace?
Maybe you can share with me what you would like to be doing more of? Inspire me gorgeous ones.
Meanwhile freezing Adelaide temperatures, arctic ocean winds and running has been enough excitement for me for one day. I’m now inside with the dog and some minestrone (with lentils!) catching up on work with the heating going strong.
