I dragged myself out of bed with aches rippling across my shoulders, throbbing in my back, tingles in my thighs. I was still feeling the affects of yesterdays workout and knew that today’s was close.
We started the day with meditation. I was proud of my focus today. No matter where my brain tried to wander off to, it just fell straight back into the program and deeply too. At one stage, Homer jumped up on the sofa and put his paws on my leg and it scared the life out of me. I was so focused on meditating that I hadn’t even noticed him getting up.
Hubby left for work and I immediately jumped into my workout. The first round of the workout was a challenge. Body parts ached more than when I started and the journey seemed long. Everything in me wanted to stop after the first time but I continued. The second round was harder than the first and I’m feeling it at least seven times more now. Glad I did it though. I am looking forward to when this feels easy and I need to push myself to a new level.
I spent a good part of the day learning to knit. I think I might actually understand how to do the ‘knit’ stitch. Although it may not look like it. Today is the first time I’ve done multiple rows. I know there are areas I got very very wrong, ones I purposely did wrong in hopes of saving it so I could keep going and there are some parts where it worked smooth and fast. Exciting!!!
Tomorrow I’ll try knitting again and painting or something photo related. As long as it’s something creative.
Day 2: Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot
This may seem like a throw away comment and not something of real importance but I remember my grandma once saying that I looked really good in red.
I’m not sure if it has stuck with me because it was the nicest thing she’d ever said to me (she wasn’t the kindest of grandmas) or because I genuinely enjoy wearing red and that comment affirmed my decision.
It’s a strange little comment that has stuck with me for over 20 years and I still like wearing the colour red.
