Time to fight: Project Warrior Goddess is go (again)
After the recent broken leg set-back, I have decided I want to restart PGW. This is the post I wrote right two months ago when I rebooted the 365 project with the lovely new name and some lovely new goals. I have decided this is a good time to remind myself what they are and start again. Now, today, and its not even a Monday! After literally falling down, a lot of this is even more relevant…so…
Time to stand
Time to fight
Time to turn and face the light
My inner warrior goddess has spoken
I wrote this a while ago, at the time it was a kick in the face to my anxiety and I felt like I needed to declare that I wasn’t going to let it get to me any more! After all who can argue with a warrior goddess…even an inner one!
I feel like this again today! It is time to fight once more, this time I am fighting for my life! No, not in a critical illness sort of way and I am of course not comparing my situation to those who are fighting a life threatening condition.
I mean it is time to fight back against my self sabotaging nature. To fight to be able to live the life I want to live without being worried about people with cameras, without being worried that I am not fast enough or fit enough. Without constantly believing I am holding people up and being humored by people. It doesn’t matter at this point whether people are really thinking those things, I am thinking those things and the only way to stop myself is to step up and do something about the weight I have regained and the fitness I have lost.
So this is the 365 project reboot number 157 (probably not literally). I know I have started again several times. I know I have promised things I have not delivered on. This time I mean business. This time feels like the first time. I am excited to get started. Anyway, it doesn’t matter how many times you start, the important thing is not to stop! (or something)
Yes, that’s what I was trying to say, only in handy (coherent) picture form! I am not normally a fan of these “motivational” thingies but these seemed appropriate.
So, here it is the official reboot of Project “Fit enough to dance in a mask”.
Along side the official boot of project “Fit enough to live without a mask”
(I think I am going to call the two together Project Warrior Goddess)
The aims of Project Warrior Goddess:
- Regain enough fitness so that I can dance as much and as often as necessary without feeling like I am the fat one people put up with.
- Gain enough confidence in my legs and my fitness that I could do additional dancing without having to hide myself behind a mask to do it.
- Alter my shape such that I am not embarrassed by myself.
How am I going to achieve these aims (general):
- Move more. Lots more. Move every day, and move fast as often as possible. By which I mean achieve a good balance between weights and cardio
- Return to functional and plyometric training.
- Track the food that I am eating to regain control over my consumption and ensure that I am not just eating all the food.
There were specific goals on the end of my last post about this, I am still rehabbing my ankle so I am holding off on huge goals at the moment…It won’t be long though until I have some more specifics for you (I feel September goals coming on…)
