I have spent the last couple of days working for a friend who is a builder. He was desperate for someone because all the people he was relying on couldn’t help. So I volunteered
My muscles are reminding me of how long it is since I have done hard physical labour. I need to get a bit fitter if I am going to last in my new position next year. After many years of behind the desk jobs my body is going to get a much harder workout.
But I tell you I feel very much alive. I feel good. I get tired when I am shifting bricks and climbing up and down ladders and shifting bits of timber. But, it is a much better than that dead tired feeling that you get when you have done nothing but just feel tired. I don’t know if that makes sense but I am saying that the physical work is a good thing.
Anyway back behind my desk. This has been one of my slackest ever years for physical exercise. We are just too busy with work and the kids and everything else. But I am determined not to neglect my physical wellbeing so much in the future.
What do I plan to do:
- Make time to regularly exercise
- Make sure I do regular aerobic exercise
- Make sure I do strength building exercise
- Eat healthily – bad habit are so tasty
- Lose some weight
I will try to hold myself accountable here..
