Okay thats it!
No more excuses!
I am getting into shape.
Watch this space.
Over a very healthy breakfast of a bacon and egg roll teamed with a chocolate milkshake, my best friend and I have taken the next step in our health journey: Pilates and Zumba.
I have been procrastinating since the beginning of covid and it is time to stop. I have talked the talked, now it's time to walk the walk. This starts with a personal training session on Monday which I will admit I am nervous for . It may not seem like a big deal for others but as someone who is severely self conscious, i am embarrassed by anything to do with my size or weight. Not that the session is necessarily centred around that its more about being fit.
My sudden jump in motivation could be a result of the events have occurred in the past few weeks. These have also caused me to reevaluate various aspects of my life:
The amount of money i spend on truly unnecessary things.
I had a surgery a few weeks ago and while the surgery has gone well, the aftermath hasn't been easy. I've encountered some issues that are yet to be resolved but as usual I am trying to look at the positives. It's a good thing that these issues have been identified before they turned into major issues.
I'll have another surgery in 6 months to stay on top of these problems and hopefully all will be good!
I had a nice evening with a few friends the other week and I can honestly say I haven't laughed that much in a while. It was such a welcome change. It also reminded me that I do have people in my life that I can experience these moments with. A friend of mine gave me some really great advice the other week about people we are close with. He said we should focus and appreciate friends that are actually there for us and not worry about people that aren't. Don't think about the people that didn't show up, appreciate those who did.
Basically its quality over quantity. Thats something so simple yet its something i've forgotten over the past few years.
In other news, I think I got scammed. I seriously can be the most gullible person at times and it is a trait I have carried with me for as long as I can remember. In a nutshell, I spent $50 on a tapestry for my bedroom wall from a dodgy website. I don't think i'll ever receive it. I googled it and other sites said not to trust it. Just another expensive mistake I suppose.
I've also been jamming out to that Simple Plan song from 10 years ago: Jet lag. It is a serious bop and I'll admit it is currently on my 'On repeat" Spotify playlist. I feel like it should be a guilty pleasure...but I feel no guilt. We used to have a simple plan album back in 2008 or something and we would listen to it in the car on road trips. Seven year old sarah didn't like Simple Plan and therefore dreaded these long car trips but this Jet lag song is a straight up banger. I can definitely appreciate that.
