In an effort to not bore the hell out of you, but also to keep myself accountable, I’m only posting every so many weeks on my 52 week challenge. I’m over half way through and can’t believe how fast the time has gone by. For those who don’t know, my focus is on working out and learning how to cook. I had two other initiatives when I started, but there wasn’t enough why or motivation behind them to continue on a weekly basis. I dumped them. That can be key. I’m at a point in my life when my history has educated me on when to call it.
I feel like I should have something profound to say halfway through, but it’s still a lot of putting my head down and learning as I go. The thing is if I hadn’t committed 28 weeks ago I wouldn’t be this far along. I would of just been wishing and half-assing my way through these goals meaning … not much would of been done. I’m convinced logging everyday is the key. We tend to think we do way more then we actually do. The journal does not lie. There’s no finish line at 52 weeks either. I will wrap up my postings on it out here, but it will continue to be ingrained in my lifestyle.
Week 28 of 52
I was able to do a bit of minimalism and cleaned out this old chest that was full of crap I never used. I called my mom and said hey…would you be upset if I got rid of the afghans you gave me and some other things? She’s like get rid of it! You can’t hold onto everything everyone gives you. SCORE!
I’ve started to slowly uP some of my workout times to twenty minutes. Slow, steady, and consistent is the theme and it’s paying off. I can see muscle gain and everything is getting easier as far as daily movements like squatting down, bending over, getting up…feels like healthy living.
Still overall impressed with Hello Fresh. I have to say many of the meals I’ve made are just as good or better then what I received from restaurants. Chef Hyde, ha… never would of put those two words together, but I’m definitely getting better other then the night I cooked chili with jalapeños and had to open the windows from the aroma. 😁
Peloton: I know I’ve gone on and on about peloton out here, but I highly recommend it to check out for those bored with their workout routines or trying to find an exercise routine that interest’s them. I get it that some people don’t like to exercise, but think again when it comes to the types of activities you can do. Take a look below on some of the options. For the peloton app of $13 a month, it’s definitely worth trying it out for yourself. I don’t own a peloton bike and just use the workout app with dumbbells. And no I’m not getting sponsored and no affiliate links here.
You are so worthy folks, and your health is key to living a full active life. If not NOW – When? You can do it slow and steady.
