Our sons have been talking about TED for the last year or so. I have dipped in and out and often find the talks inspirational and fascinating and if I come across one that doesn’t float my boat, its only a few minutes out of my life before it is finished.
Recently thinking about my new years resolutions and having joined Weight Watchers, which is working (YAY) I knew the time had come to up my exercise. I started with the Wii and I love the dance DVD’s, they are great fun, however the Zumba DVD frightens me senseless and I simply can’t keep up with it. It was good and I was exercising and stretching out etc, But, I was still on my own and keeping yourself motivated can be very challenging.
Lately I have been listening to TED late at night, lying flat on my back in bed with hubby, whilst he snores I try not to giggle, when I came across this posting. Try something new for 30 days and I found it very amusing and enlightening, it made a lot of sense.
Now I can put things off for all eternity, I can make excuses up as to why I shouldn’t do something. For instance, I am too fat, I’m bald, it hurts to do these things, everyone’s looking at me, etc, etc. But after watching this clip, I thought this guy has something, 30 days, if you don’t like it, don’t do it after that. But for those 30 days, just go for it.
So today, I joined the local gym for woman, you might have heard of it Curves, . I had my induction today and then did a circuit for the fun of it, and then walked home. (I had already walked there) It was great fun, although I may have had to have an afternoon kip as my old carcass feels the strain these days.
29 days to go.
