So it’s officially started – my 6 months challenge. I am quite proud of myself due to sticking to my plan for the first week. I know it’s nothing really special, just 7 days, but trust me – for such a lazy ass it’s really something.
As I planned, I did 4 workouts this week, I will probably do the fifth one today. One run, 2 x gym and I started practicing yoga. Yoga that used to make me laugh, especially when I saw all these people trying not to think about anything, almost as if they were trying to make themselves levitate. That was couple of years ago. Now, something’s changed. Being such a quick-tempered person like me, you get angry or emotional very quickly. So instead of wasting energy on arguing and shouting, I’ve decided to stretch a bit and maybe try this “clear your mind, do not think about anything” thing. And surprisingly I liked it!! And that’s how the yoga mat became my friend.
Like I wrote in a previous post, the more you exercise, the more endorphins you need, which makes you want to exercise even more. I can feel it after a week. Truly amazing! I also made sure, I will have some healthy food in my fridge, mainly vegetables, chicken and grains To motivate myself even more, every day of the first week I was posting a pic from each workout on Instagram. It may sound silly or shallow, but I don’t really care – I am really excited about this plan – fit is the new black!
It’s not only about posting pics of my body changing, it is also about the results: that’s why exactly in a week time – instead of going to the cinema with a guy, I’ll go for a run.. with my dad (YES, I know, it’s kinda sad!). St. Valentine’s 10k Run, where I’ll see if riding a bike and stretching helped to strengthen my muscles and gave me a better results
Another news is that I planned to participate in Wings for Life Run in Poznań on 3rd of May. The problem is that I also signed up for the race to Budapest that will be held in exactly the same time, so.. I don’t want to risk I won’t make it back to Poznań on time. That’s why I decided to sing up for the same run but in… Austria! I really wanted to join my father in Porto, as he’s taking my mom on holidays to Portugal, but I guess it will be too time consuming. So – Austria. Sounds awesome!
What about you guys? What’s the plan?
Wish me luck with the second week!
