On June 16th, I blogged about my desire - need - to take on a big challenge. And I wrote that I'd be focusing on my physical fitness for this challenge.
Because I want to - there are adventures I want to experience!
Because I need to - my health has been iffy and in overal decline.
But I'm capable. And I don't have limitations that would get in the way of trying. Actually, I do have barriers - all internal, all self-imposed, all learned and reinforced.
I need more skin in the game - because I'm too weak to rely on discipline or motivation. I'm thinking:
- Commit to a trip/outing/event that will require X level of fitness. Like hiking in New Mexico in the Fall.
- Sign up for some kind of virtual personal training, using the equipment I have (or can get for home use). Something that will force an accountability structure but fit my current circumstances and the covid restrictions. Maybe add some boxing? Not sure where I'd put the bag/dummy...
- Re-align the kitchen to reinforce my best and healthy food options.
- Clear the to-do list and my commitments so that a fly on the wall would guess that THIS endeavor is among my most important.
Will update again soon with progress notes.
