Pressure

Sometimes it can be a good thing. I signed up for that NaBloPoMo for November and because I agreed to do it I had the pressure on me to complete what I started, I did 90 blog posts in 30 days. Some of them weren't so hot, but I did them. Very, very cool.

As I was working out this morning I thought about that. I agreed to do this, I had the pressure to do it everyday, I did it. The best part was it wasn't tremendous pressure. It would only make me feel bad if I didn't do it. No serious consequences. More like a little prodding than real pressure.

So I've decided to give myself a little prodding, a little added pressure if you will. I have resolved to work out every day in December. Now they won't always be butt-kicking, sweat inducing, heart pounding workouts. Some will be easy hikes or walks around somewhere. But I will be active everyday in December for at least 30 minutes. I've very excited about this. I will be focusing on my running since I have a 10k in 30 days - yikes!!!! But I will also be weight training, aerobics, and biking whenever I can. So here goes.

Today I was looking for a sweat pouring, heart pounding, muscle straining workout. But since I did strength training and running yesterday I was unsure what to do today. I opted for a kick-butt aerobic workout. It was fun and sweaty and a great way to start the weekend. Now, I'm off to try and get my printer working. Ugh!!!! Have I mentioned I hate computers ???

I was thinking of doing a workout every day in December routine too! Something, every day. Can't hurt.

The things i have to do daily....... I just do automatically. I don't feel pressure for those and i don't take any pressure for those. I just hate pressure.

Last piece of the craft puzzle

 is now in place. Spent most of yesterday putting this bad boy together, it took about an hour. Then it took me a couple of hours to work up...
