The plan is simple: For the next 30 days I will go jogging every single day.
this sounds extra simple. It gets more fun after this. I have a list of
things I want to do or challenge myself with and I want to do them all
for 30 days a piece. Now I'm not even going to pretend that this is a
unique idea. I love Ted Talks and this where the idea sparked. Go watch it, it's awesome and I can't figure out how to embed it into this dumb thing.
Ted Talk: Matt Cutts
So far I have a list that makes me happy and scares me a little. These will run me through a year and I hope to add other things to my list. (Suggestions are welcomed!)
30 days of:
drawing a picture
playing the piano
salad (not only salad, but every day)
no sugar (!)
writing a novel
using a new word every day
The only plans I have for when I'm doing any of these is "no
sugar" which gets the delightful and enviable spot of January and the list might change a bit because some of these I'm not sure I really want to endure for 30 days. I'll explain my plans for each 30 days a few days before I start and post updates every day on how I did. Granted for some of the posts they may be as simple as "I did it now leave me alone."
Today I knew I was starting my first day of 30 with jogging. While
feeling unhealthy and out of shape this seemed like a natural place to
start. That is my delightful before picture. My goal was to get a mile of running in and a little walking around it. I managed 1.9 miles, in 2 parts, and 3 miles total. I'm satisfied that I pushed myself.
Tomorrow: 2 miles minimum tomorrow and at least 1.25 all in one stretch
Right now: Dinner with my loving boyfriend!
