Day 20 and I’ve exercised every single day of January so far.
Now that I’ve got this far I’m absolutely determined to finish this Janathon with an unbroken record.
It’s very motivating to actually be able to push myself and have a goal to aim for that’s achievable. And I am going to jiggle, wiggle, prance, dance, and generally move about in sweat inducing ways until the end of the month.
Today, first thing, just after midnight I completed a session of bed weights (5 reps of 20 7kg dumbell lifts on each arm, whilst lying in bed). My shoulders are often very tense when I’m doing this. But this morning the lifts felt wonderful.
And then I finally got around to doing some more exercise at roughly 11pm. If you’ve read any of my other blogs you’ll have probably noticed that I’m a night owl. Night is when I feel most like getting up and doing something. Not so great if I fancy a walk, but since I moved from a 1st floor flat into a house five years ago, at least I can exercise indoors without annoying anyone.
30 minutes on the recumbenc…. completed. (I’m going to leave that error there. I’ve just tried to re-type that word six times!)
And now I’m going to tidy up a little, because the Old Trout is coming to stay tomorrow.
Wish me luck!
