Happy birthday to me!
Already the fiftieth post on Tales of Ore, time sure flies fast! I did not realize I had already posted so much, I’m really happy and proud of myself for this achievement, 15 days of blogging, 50 posts and 12 consecutive days of daily Quotidian, this call for a little celebration, don’t you think? Yeah, thought so!
As you may have noticed, today I’m posting this Quotidian before any other post because, well, it’s the fiftieth post and I wanted to do something special for that occasion. Not too special though, I’m still thinking aboutwhat to do, but to celebrate this milestone. I was thinking about posting the complete fifth chapter of Of Shadow and Feathers by this morning but sadly I haven’t been able to complete it yet and so I decided to post the Quotidian first to congratulate myself. I don’t know if it’ll be finished by this evening, I’ll try to do it but I can’t guarantee anything, so if it is then I’ll upload it, if not I have something else in store for you guys that I hope you’ll like!
In the meantime, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! :D
Yeah, big-ass image, so what?! I’m happy! :D
Ahem anyway! On another subject, today I decide to start working out again. I’ve been postponing this too long. Since I got out of highschool (by which I mean school between the ages of 16 and 18 here in France) I must confess that I haven’t done much sport. I’ve spent most of my time either lying on my bed to sleep, sitting in a chair during class or on my armchair in front of my computer. I realised over time that I was getting less and less sporty, but it’s really more recently that I also realized how unenergetic I have become.
I’m getting tired really quickly, I can’t run around as long and I need to catch my breath a lot quicker than before. Now, I know that by getting older I also don’t have the same energy as when we are kids and even if I’m twenty, almost twenty one, I already feel like I’ve lost most of my physical abilities. And it scares me, a bit. The fact that I also am starting to become a tad fat (my belly is visibly bigger than before) is pushing me to get back to it. Now, I’m not saying that I want to be as athletic and good looking as men in sports magazines, no, but I do want to remain as healthy as possible for as long as possible and my slacking in front of a computer is definitely not helping… (NOT my goal!)
That’s why I’ve decided to star working out on a regular basis again from now on, I want to get back in shape bit by bit and to be able to do sports as I want again, I want to be able to run a few kilometers without being able to breate a quarter of the distance into the course. I want to be able to have fun with my younegr brother and my friends again and not be so tired I have to stop after half an hour.
Now, I know I’m lucky to still be in acceptable shape after a full year of almost no exercise but I want more out of it and I want to be able to that “more”. I know it won’t be easy, considering my laziness and the bad habits I’ve picked up over the years but I really want to do this so, I’m going to try hard, if possible my hardest!
The reason I’m telling you this is because if I just promise it to myself, think about it or even simply put in on paper, I know I won’t be able to do it. So I feel like I have to make an official pledge to start exercising again. This is what I’m doing here. From today on I shall exercise as often as possible and, bit by bit, every day work to get back in shape! This is a solemn pledge I make to myself and to you, dear people of the internets!
So, yeah, I’m going to make myself a schedule of exercise routines to do and then, from today on, stick to it as closely as I can.
You’ll get another post later in the afternoon, when either when I’m finished with chapter five or when I decide to publish the backup plan. In any case, see you later people!
