Day 1 of My House Arrest
Okay, just in case you're wondering I'm not actually on house arrest, I've never taken part in any criminal activity and don't plan to.
I am actually having eye surgery soon, and I am about 90% blind so I'll be at home until the surgery (hopefully in three weeks).
Today is the first day.
I can't say it has been a super productive day, but I do hope to get some good use of this time off.
I hope to work more confidently and consistently on my writing (both fiction and nonfiction), so I guess this post is the first step to that!
Another one of my goals was to make myself happier with my appearance, and one way is to lose a little bit of weight. I know I'm not fat, but I'm also not 100% happy with my body right now. So my goal is to go at least 1 mile on the treadmill every day for the next 2 weeks (which I when I have my next day if testing). I just completed my first run, and I went 1 mile in 19 minutes and 55 seconds. I'll keep track of everything I do here, so we can see how I progress! I may add swimming to my work outs as well (nice cool down after a run), but I'll need to wait until my family gets back in town in a couple days for that (swimming alone is always dangerous, but doing it when you're vision is impaired is worse)!
Something else I got done today? I watched a movie called "Animal" (kind of dumb, but the creatures were kind of cool looking). I have a lot of movies on my watch list for this time off. Movies help motivate me to use the treadmill, takes my mind off the boring work out! Haha
Anyways, thanks for reading!
