Starting the gym…again

I am without doubt one of the laziest people in the world. If I can do anything…you’ll either find me asleep or eating. I hate working out…or really anything to do with exercise. I mean I’m sure I’d like it if I stuck to it and starting to see the results, but it’s just getting into it and keeping the motivation. Anyway regardless of that I’ve bit the bullet and joined the gym. So this is the start of my fitness journey. If I can even call it that!

My aim is really just to tone up, although I would like to lose a little bit of weight it isn’t a must in my mind. But after being a single for a year, you can start to get pretty comfortable with the lazy lifestyle that goes with the ‘comfy’ body. And to be completely honest I’m not just comfortable…I’m in love with being lazy.

Anyway just so I can attempt to stick to it, I’ve decided to write a list of areas I want to improve on and goals for working on them.

So my main aims is to go to the gym three times a week, spread out so I don’t overwork myself or damage myself like the last time I attempted weights 😂 (told you I suck at working out). The main areas I want to focus on are my abs, arms, thighs and my butt…so basically nearly everywhere on my body.

It’s do-able if I stick to it, I just hate waiting so long for results. I’m very impatient when working out which is probably the worst way to be in the gym. But I guess if I’m going to make a good attempt at toning my body up, I might as well do it now…after all I have a lot of free time!

Wish me luck! 💪🏼

Words of Wisdom

“Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.” – Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper.

This was the first quote I ever posted on my blog, and it still speaks wisdom… Humans do things that can actually make us worse off, time keeping being one of them.

However it also makes us aware about how precious life is, and how we shouldn’t waste it, or let opportunities pass us by…because it might be there one minute but gone the next. Be careful and wise but also have courage to be a bit reckless at times.

Innovation over Creativity

“Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.”

— Theodore Levitt

In my opinion I think I’m quite creative. I’m creative in the sense I can make things, write things and maybe even see things others wouldn’t. However what I do lack majority of the time is Innovation. You see, I may notice opportunities where creativity is needed but then I fail to act upon them. So to state the obvious it holds me back…quite a lot.

I’m still trying to work on my new years resolutions and one of them was to improve myself. I’ve always thought that the first step to improvement was noticing the issues and this is one of them. Soooooo now I just need to work on it.  In the next few months I hope to start my own YouTube channel, I already have the layout for it and also some video ideas. But there’s one thing stopping me. What to upload for my first video?

I had a couple of ideas, one of them being a thirty-second video of me pretending to do a tutorial of how to eat a starburst with a funny accent, but then my mind starts thinking. What will people think? This will be their first impression of me, and I don’t want to mess up already. Ahh the issues of having a woman brain.

Overall I just want to start doing things, not just dreaming of them. So I think I’m just going to set a deadline to upload the first video and go from there. If all else fails the first videos that go up will be vlogs from my second trip to Iceland. I’ll just have to see how it goes…fingers crossed.
