Day one of R.E.D

Ugh. Let’s be honest here, I really really cannot be bothered to run a mile today. Ugh! I just want to sleep and be lazy. It’s 4pm and I’m still yet to do the first run for R.E.D.

I keep looking at my nails and thinking “come on, I can do this, I need to do this” but the motivational levels within me is just not budging.

I never knew how hard something out of the ordinary and your routine like fitness could be. I read online somewhere that to incorporate things into your daily routine, you have to do it approx 9 times for it to become a natural thing to do. So by the 9th January (day 9) I will be mastering running every day haha! (I’ll let you know on that one).

I’ve opened my front door and oh my… it is freezing outside haha! That’s enough to make you want to stay indoors, in pjs, on the sofa with a nice hot chocolate hehe. Plus side, atleast it is not raining (yet).

Right, I cannot give up at this first hurdle. Not the first day. I will not give in. I best pause my rambles here and get changed into my gear and get out there… i’ll be back (maybe in one piece who knows)!

What you think?

Reckon I could be RED and Mind supermodel haha!

I’m back and in one piece although I do feel a bit like wheezy from toy story now! Ha! But I done it, and guess what? The hardest part of the whole thing was getting off the sofa and out the door.

Like I said I’m not running a marathon, but I ran ONE WHOLE MILE!! Once you get out the door, do a little warm up walk to get you going you will ace it!! All the way round I was thinking I cannot wait for a shower (I purposely did not shower today so I had to go and run) haha! Bit of blackmail to myself haha! And also how nice will fresh clean pjs feel after my nice hot shower.

I am shattered. But it’s a good shattered, I do feel good and much better within myself and mind than I did feel at 4pm moaning to you all.

So here I am, finished day one of RED, all showered and clean and sat in fresh clean pjs! Now to think what blackmail to give myself tomorrow.

If I can do it, so can you. You’ll surprise yourself, I know I did.

Hugs, A x
