I feel like this is a really powerful question to ask yourself.
What task would you have to achieve, hill you would have to climb, etc. Before you could be completely satisfied and ready to kick that bucket for good?
A friend asked this recently, and it got me thinking… As a quick answer, I rattled off:
1. Showing at the World of Wearable Arts Festival
2. Hold my own dream fashion show
3. Visit every country
4. Cuddle a sloth
5. Learn from some of the top yogi’s in India
6. Meditate with monks
7. Start a foundation which empowers the unempowered
I’m 100% sure there are other things to add to this list, and that I’d never actually be satisfied anyway hahaha, but it’s a good thought exercise.
What is on your bucket list?
I had hoped to be in better physical shape by now, especially with summer looming here in NZ, and my trip to Las Vegas to attend 10X Growth Con in February! So here comes the extra cardio… but where to squeeze it in?
Last night I managed to squeeze it in by watching a movie with my partner, largely from my spin bike, and the rest while doing a couple of last minute bits before bed.
Gotta make it work!
I hope you’re having a fantastic and productive day today!
In writing my Day 55 update blog, I re-watched a vlog I’d done a few months ago, and was really encouraged to know that I have indeed been working in the things I said I would work on, and that I am now further along in moving towards the things that I said I wanted, without remembering what exactly I said in the video.
It was kind of like looking back at body measurements when you’ve been busting ass to loose weight for a long time, but instead of losing body fat, I shed mental fat, and gained a better understanding of myself in the process!
I highly recommend doing your own video! Even if you just keep it for yourself to look back on, to see if you have stuck to your goals, or if not what goals changed and why. I learned a lot from looking back a short video!
Smash those goals today,
Sunday held a bit of time out, and a bit more planning and prep for the big day!
I have started noticing a welcome change in my body… Here’s where the consistency will pay up. In the past whenever I’ve started to see results, I’ve fallen off the wagon. Not this time Laveena, not this time.. bring on the summer bod!
Other than that, not much to report, other than being a bundle of nerves…
I hope you’re smashing your goals!
For months now, I’ve been saying that as soon as it starts to warm up that I’ll cycle to work (around a 20km round trip) on the days where I don’t have to work at my night job later on… And well… Its now warmer…
So yesterday was the first ride in for the summer, and as expected it was a little hard going and slower than I was, once upon a time when I cycled everywhere!
It was a nice way to start the day though, I had forgotten how refreshing it is to start work fresh out of the shower after a cycle ride through the city! An added bonus on top of the fitness, and speeding up my journey to my “summer bod” (I am definitely aiming to keep it longer than summer!).
The ride home was not so nice… I was tender from the ride in, and was riding directly against the wind. Brutal. There were a couple points were I found myself questioning my life decisions (and on a side note, I personally think if you don’t ever do this you’re not pushing yourself hard enough hahaha).
At one point, I was soo sore and knackered, that when a car got caught behind me at a narrow part of a road and had to wait, I found myself laughing a little like a mad woman. I literally could not pedal faster, I was feeling as tender as it comes from sitting on a bike seat for the first time in months, and I just had to laugh at myself.
A win for commitment yesterday!
