I love reading articles on The SITS girls site, they are so helpful and inspiring. The SITS offers monthly writing prompts (like this one) to brush up your writing skills or when your like me and have nothing but blanks.
I have had a rough couple of weeks that have knocked me off my axis and i am still trying to recover. I have been so busy i hadn’t had time to write anything let alone think of anything to write about.
I think i have finally decided which path I’d like to take this blog down, niche wise i am still going to be a lifestyle blog. I will give you guys the scoop once i have completely nailed down all of the details.
….annnd moving on…
Since quiting my day job back in January to become a full time freelance writer (also working at an insurance agency part time. Have to make sure those bills are paid) i have found it a little challenging to get in my steps for the day (thanks to my Fitbit, that i am addicted to. You can add me as a friend too: LeslieCBeMe).
My bedroom doubles as my office, because of this i think it is a great idea to set boundaries, to make sure i keep myself in check. I wake up at 7:45am, shower, and put on real clothes. It does sadden me to be without my yoga pants. I sit and read just to read and sit, hey i am not complaining – it comes with the job.
To implement my new routine though i take a break around lunch time. Not to eat but to put on my Fitbit and exercise. If i go to the gym i reward myself with a tanning session after 30 horrible minutes on the treadmill. I despise running on a treadmill, so much work to go nowhere! I am not knocking it if you like the treadmill, it just isn’t for me really.
I like to feel the asphalt under my shoes, the breeze on my face and arms, along with all that fresh air. It does something that i love, i love how i feel after i am done. Albeit i am sweaty (as a pig. Did you know pigs don’t sweat? Fun fact!), tired, and becoming a little sore but i still feel great.
Days that my anxiety is so high the last thing i want to do is go in public to face all of these people, noise, and situations i bought a weighted jump rope, so i could still do a little cardio. Now i have no excuse for not getting in my 3 days.
The goal is a 30 minute workout at least 3 days a week. I think that is totally doable, how about you?
