BABY, I'M BACK


A little bird reminded me that I haven’t been blogging much. The little bird sings true. She usually does. I guess I should get my butt in gear. And what better way, you say, then with one of  Angela’s 30-day challenges.

 

You’ll remember my 30-day poetry challenge which I found both enjoyable and stress relieving. I continue to read poems on the train to work and find this motivating and uplifting. Nothing beats the Monday blues like a couple of humorous poems.

 

Write for 15 minutes (minimum) every day for 30 days was another successful challenge for me. On some days that challenge was a toughie. I’d be climbing into bed around midnight when I’d suddenly remember that I hadn’t done my fifteen minutes. After briefly considering letting it go, I’d groan, pull out paper and pen and start to scribble something down. The surprising part was that no matter how tired or uninspired I felt, I often exceeded the 15 minute minimum. Productivity soared.

 

Santa left the Wii Fit under our Christmas tree. What fun! After a few days of Wii Fitting, I put myself on a 30-day hula hoop challenge. I’m proud to tell you that I am now on day 14 and LOVING it. It’s so much fun. You too can do this using either a real hula hoop or an imaginary one. Reconnect with your inner child, make big circles with those hips and you’ll be amazed at how great your spine feels after a couple of days.

 

So, even though I’m already in the middle of one 30-day challenge, I’m going to be ambitious and give myself another one. For the next 30 days, starting today, I am going to post a blog entry. Can you stand it? Hopefully, you can. If not, check back towards the end of February.

 

Go me!

Go on, I dare you - try some hula hooping. Apparently, hula hooping is a sport. There are websites and even magazines dedicated to it. Who knew?
