Getting Fit for 2022

I’ve annoyed myself.
For so long I have been making promises to myself that I have not followed through, and that really sucks!

But I have to admit that I am not a person that will give up very easily, even though I have had several failures under my belt.

I am also a person that wants to do a lot of things.
The drums, guitar, piano, singing, playing video games, writing, taking photos, handstand, combat, weights, mobility, reading, learning a language…
And as you have probably guessed, I haven’t been able to fulfill any of these goals, and that makes me really sad.

For some reason I have got it into my head that I’m running out of time and that I must get everything done NOW or else I will be wasting time. I think this is probably because I have been through A LOT these past two years, and I feel like I have been drifting along in a bit of a dream state, not getting much of anything done, and now i feel like I have to make up for that lost time.
But this mindset hasn’t helped me in the slightest, if anything it’s making things worse for me.

So I have decided that I am going to have to slow down (much to my disgust), and I’m picking one category that I will focus on for 6 months, and as you may have seen by the title of this post, it’s going to be getting fit.
So all the goals that I have written above that is fitness related, i.e. combat, weights, handstand, and mobility, are what I will be focusing on.
(I do want to add that I will be reading and learning a language at the same time as this, as I have committed to a book club for over 6 months now – if you want to join, it’s on the Work it Out Discord group – details later in this post – and I have to learn the language as the country I now live in has their own language, so I need to be able to communicate lol).

I have a goal of losing 30KGs in 6 months.
That may seem like a lot, and that’s because it is lol. But this will be my sole focus over the next 6 months, and I am going to completely overhaul my workout routine and what I eat. So it should be easy right? πŸ˜›

I’m happy to write this down, and share it with you all, as I want to be held accountable, and I want to show that I’m not giving up. I’m also hoping that you can all keep me on track, and I hope that if you are on the same sort of journey as I am, then you can also share how you get on πŸ™‚

I do have a discord community for free 30 day journeys if you want to join that!
Every month at the beginning of the month, we, as a group, take on a monthly fitness challenge, and we support each other through it πŸ™‚
Here is the link to the Community Menu above, where you can find the instructions for the Discord group.

Anyways, Monday is my day 1, and the 18th July 2022 is my target date.

I’m feeling very anxious about it at the moment if I’m completely honest, so I have to push through that, which is always something that is a struggle. But here we go i suppose πŸ˜€

Much love,
Nat
