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

Never beaten
Never broken
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…)

  1. YAY! Fight! Fight! Fight! I just love the way you never give up – even when broken bones and anxiety try to get in your way! The Warrior Goddess is the bestest of all and can overcome anything. I’m so proud of you and totally in awe!

    1. Giving up is not really an option. Stopping for a while, changing the goal a bit or changing the method, these are all things I am willing to do, but not give up as long as I am not where I want to be!

      You are pretty warrior goddess-y yourself you know!

      1. You are right – there is always away to achieve your goals, sometimes it just takes a bit of practice and a few attempts 🙂 Keep getting up! And up!
        I learned from the best Warrior Goddess and now I am developing my skills 🙂

      2. Exactly, keep getting up otherwise you will stay down and people will probably step on you…
        (this is why I am not a motivational speaker)
        Every warrior goddess needs to practice their skills 😀

  2. I like that proverb….I’m going to have to use it too.

    Forever forward never back. Forward gets us to the places we need to be and you’ll get there with your fighting spirit 😊
