Day 82: It’s Never Over
100 burpees done.
And yes, I did them yesterday too but it was after I wrote my blog post. I have to check what day I’m on so far, its not been a week yet but I can already feel the difference.
I’m happy I started this challenge because I think I really needed it. I needed to feel my blood running through my veins again. Its been such a cold ‘summer’ I still have to put my heater on and I wear a jumper most of the time.
Generally I’m not the workout challenge type because keeping fit is a lifestyle, it shouldn’t really be a challenge, challenges can be like crash diets I think. However if used correctly they can help you get back on the right track (and hopefully keep you on it) if you’ve fallen off the wagon a bit.
I’ll be honest with you I really feel so lazy today. I went to sleep feeling so dedicated to achieving big goals today and even though I feel like I’ve had a great sleep I’d love to do it all over again.
I’ve actually been writing a book (I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned that before or not?) and I had some super power goal of writing 10,000 words today. (yh I know right?) Totally crazy, but hey, if I can I can and if I don’t I’ll just submit to my blanket, its always there for me (haha).
I think that can sometimes be the downside of doing a challenge for me personally. On a day to day level at least, because once I’ve reached the target or completed the challenge for the day on a day that I’m feeling lazy like today I really just don’t want to do anything else because I feel like I’ve already achieved something.
I supposed I kind of have but on the larger scale I actually haven’t.
But yh my blanket is not far away so I’m not going to give myself a hard time today. I’m going to force myself to write as much as I can and the moment my eyes decide that they no longer want to be open I will simply close them. Who knows I may even dream up some inspiration for my book?
So, what about my art? All this writing that I’ve been doing what about painting and how is it going since I completed those two other paintings the other day?
Well. My little sister has finally given me some help with regard to the composition for those two medium sized long strip boards that I did the backgrounds for. So that’s great for me, I will Insha Allah (God willing) start it up again this week, something to do alongside my writing so I don’t get completely bored of it.
I don’t know why I find writing so off putting. I really shouldn’t actually but I always see it as a challenge and not necessarily in the good way. I don’t know why. It’s weird I enjoy painting and creating art so much and other even menial tasks such as cleaning but writing makes me feel like I have a mountain on top of my head.
It’s the kind of challenging feeling that I can’t wait to complete so that it will be over and I won’t have to do it again because it done. I suppose its true for so many things but there’s a pain I experience when I write. A mental pain. I can feel it right now actually.
They say that when you are growing mentally it hurts, I hope this is true because I’m feeling quite uncomfortable with writing and it is taking a lot out of me I feel.
As I get nearer to the end of this 100-day blog challenge I’m excited first of all but I know that the challenge will not end there. I will have to read all 100 daily blog posts to myself because part of the challenge was not to read them and just put them out, otherwise I wouldn’t write at all. Once I’ve read through them all I intend to go to the next step of creating new blog posts that I have tailored and edited. Some of them I will combine together to make articles about particular subjects.
All of this so I can hopefully, Insha Allah build up a solid portfolio for my copywriting.
I really am dreading the editing part.
