I have recently had an epiphany … I’ve forgotten how to try. 

When I was younger, everything needed effort. I had to work hard to get through university, and work crappy old jobs after a full day of classes. Once I finished school I had to learn how to do a job, and how to cook and manage a house. Then I had to learn how the stock market works, and how to save money. You know the drill. 

But now, as a fully grown adult, I don’t really have to put in any effort. And, in fact, I have forgotten how to actually put my nose to the grindstone.

This week, this one week, I’m going to put on effort in one area – working out. At least 5 times in the next week I will work out first thing in the morning, before I do anything else. Well, I’ll feed the cats, but then I will walk or use the elliptical or go to the gym at work. 

Hold me to this, will ya?

    1. Thank you for checking in on me!! Two days of actually planning and trying, and so far so good! I’ve gotten in my steps (starting early morning), have recorded my food, and even meditated. This giving effort thing seems to work ;).

  1. Hi Janine, Glad you discovered WordSisters–thanks for following us! You and I have sewing in common. I sewed clothes as a teenager, but since then it’s mostly been household stuff — curtains, shower curtain, pillow covers. Like you, I made decorative items when I couldn’t find things I liked in the stores. I look forward to seeing your blogs!
