First? I FREAKIN ADORE YOU PEOPLE.
There was nary an ounce of humor when I said I was really apprehensive to hit PUBLISH on the #FitAfterFitbloggin post.
I wont lie. I thumb typed it from the lobby of the gym where Ren Man was upstairs cardio’ing and I was downstairs…not.
It was blogged from my heart & for the first time I felt *vulnerable* when I sent my words from phone to blogesphere.
I knew, in my heart of hearts, if no one commented Id feel alone in my rut’nessment.
But comment you did and thank you.
And then you asked.
About the plan.
If there would be ‘challenges’ involved.
If you could blog about #FitAfterFitbloggin, too.
(none. no. and HELLS YES.)
You see, for me #FitAfterFitbloggin is all about accountability.
About harnessing the power of our entire Healthy Living Tribe as virtual workout partners.
About knowing at least 80 of you are out there rut-bustin’, goal setting & getting up *each day* and re-committing along side me.
Im a misfit.
I dont do challenges.
For me the end results–from push-ups to planking–are FLEETING.
Challenge over? I return to my
rut previous ways (please to see above clarification about the fact I can’t lie)
So, instead of a challenge, Im pledging as for this misfit the mere act of public-announcement is *challenge* and accountability enough.
You may join me (I printed this out, asked the Tornado to color it, & taped it above my computer).
You may create your OWN (please to send it to me along with any of your #FitAfterFitbloggin links!).
You may design a challenge and ask me to help you promote (Im happy to! Im just not a joiner).
Whatever you do —please to hit us all up with your #FitAfterFitbloggin updates & plans in the comments below.
My #FitAfterFitbloggin Pledge:
I (state your name) do solemnly swear I have finally learned after (insert your age here) years I can not let my workouts plateau and expect to grow more healthy, fit and strong.
I recognize the importance of cross-training, of trying new things and of letting go of my vice-like grip on my self definition.
I will greet each day with a renewed commitment to my overall health & wellness and remember I am never as far away from my healthy living path as my very.next.choice.
