Now that I'm finally here, please be kind and still accept my well wishes to you and yours loved ones for the not so new year. So far it's been really interesting for me. My emotions and feelings have been just a cocktail of excitement, nervousness, moments of feeling invincible and those of self doubt.
Yes, like 80% of the human race (well didn't get that stat anywhere but I'm just assuming lol) I had many areas that I vowed to improve this year. As 20ForMe(2014) began I vowed to be more kind to my body, carefully watching what I put into it, meaning a drastic change in my eating and drinking habits. It's been going well low so far, I've had my hiccups but I'm still motivated. Basically I just try to not have any processed foods(think hotdogs, sausages, tomato sauce, fizzy drinks etc) I've been eating veges, fruits, meat and drinking loads of water. I'm not doing this as means of trying to lose weight, but just to feel good you know, not get bloated and just be full of energy. In addition, I've started swimming classes, yes I'm 25 turning 26 but can't swim. When I was younger(pre-teens) I could swim, but as I grew older and started worrying about my looks, especially my hair I just quit. After years of not going anywhere near a swimming pull I developed a fear of swimming which I'm the process of casting away. Swimming caps aren't sexy though lol.
Still in the spirit of "new year new me" I finished a 9.2 kilometer fun run last week. Along with 1276 ladies, I rocked my pink Tshirt written "every girl has iron core"to take part in Irongirl 2014. The fun run is like a pre party for the world famous South Africa Ironman 70.3 triathlon. I didn't prepare as much as I should have but I'm proud of my finishing time 1:13:55.
On areas of uncertainty and hunger for growth mentally, physical and in my career, I am making moves, one step at a time. Before I get carried, let me stop here. I will be posting more stuff from now on. xx
