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.

Is it 10 repeats or something like that to make a habit? At the end of 30 days you'll be completely addicted and we'll be prising you away from the machines. Good for you but most importantly, do you take your knitting to do on the bike?
Good for you!! I did Curves for a year and then stopped. I don't know what it's like in the UK but it's expensive here and it was far from where I live and the gas to get there was so costly so I had no choice.
Don't know about you but at this time of year I need a bit of inspiration (a kick up the bum) and the 30 day challenge sounds great. Well done, you sound all fired up and I'm sure you'll notice a difference.
