It may surprise you to know that even sometimes I eyeroll over my navel-gazing posts. I’ve got several started. One about how I wish I could erase my memory so I’m less prone to compare myself in the present to the past. And yes I know, we’re supposed to become ‘better’ people as we age, although I think I’ve failed big-time there.
There’s another about scarcity and enoughness. Sigh. Another about my internal voice, complementing last week’s post, about the fact I hear everything I think. (And again others are the complete opposite.) And then there’s one about the way we consume stuff and the fact I’ve not ‘pivoted’ (#sorrynotsorry) to podcasts, Facebook / Instagram live, online launch events when others have embraced them.
Yeah… nah. Can’t be arsed pursuing any of those thoughts but wanted to write something so here you have it.
A healthier me
I suspect this won’t last long but I’m trying to learn from lessons’ past and make some small changes in my health and fitness regime.
I’m trying to be more consistent at getting to my TWO exercise classes each week. And… I’ve started doing some very short walks in my local area. I’ve mentioned the hills before and am weirdly phobic about hills and stairs (from a fitness point of view). I can only think that’s why I’m so reticent to tread the footpaths where I live, but I’ve found a very short (almost hill-less) stroll to do once or twice a day. It’s not even 1km / 1000 steps, but I hope it’s getting me more confident about being out and about in my neighbourhood and might motivate me to tackle some hills. I’m also trying to wear-in some new rubber thongs so it’s the perfect distance to give them a test-drive and avoid blisters at the same time.
A working me
I think I have a full-time job. I mean… I’ve signed the contract so I do believe I have a job. But for reasons unknown I feel I need to wait until my start date (which may be next week) to confirm that’s the case. Perhaps I’m worried I’ll jinx it, I’m not sure. It’s a work-from-home gig, but full-time and permanent. So NOT just a few hours here and there and NOT a contract.
And that’s it. My news for October 2021. And apparently it’s November. How on earth did that happen? I hope your October passed without great turmoil.
