30 five ACTIONS: Week 2

In my endeavor to do five actions daily for 30 days, I completely ignored most of them in week 2. There wasn’t one activity I did consistently each day. I have no excuses. I just didn’t feel like doing them. The interesting thing though is I feel absolutely no guilt and actually feel better then I have in months.

I did go mountain biking twice last week and that actually propelled me up. As shitty as it can be at times huffing and puffing up hills it’s actually fun in a sick way pushing myself beyond my controlled comfortable numbness. There’s no faking it. It’s also a rush to try to stay balanced wizzing down a hill going over rocks and roots and trying to take sharp turns…all at the age of 54. You can hear me nervously giggle the whole way. And even though I’ve only gone three times now I feel like I’m improving.

I feel frickin alive. I feel challenged. I feel good.

So, I’ll eat that up for week 2!

  7. YESSSSSSS it’s so great to hear your batteries are recharged again πŸ™‚ Oh, by the way I thought of you: my yoga instructor has been doing Wim Hof breathing at the end of his Zoom classes, and I was able to hold on empty for 2 minutes on the third round, but I got scared of going until 2:30 so inhaled in before the rest of the group. Still, for me (especially as an ex smoker) 2 minutes felt like a HUGE superhuman achievement πŸ™‚ Anyway that stuff is very powerful ! xxxx Anne

  8. Dwight! Yay on the biking! I think exercise is the best, even if I have to push myself to do it! I’ve been lifting my weights, and I feel so good afterwards! I love biking to the grocery store!
    It all makes me feel alive!
