Day 7

This is the end of my first week of the Positive & Relaxed Challenge.  I feel a little more productive.  Friday really threw me for a loop, but aside from that I feel more positive.    If you feel like taking the Positive & Relaxed Challenge, here are the basic rules:

  1. It only lasts for 2 weeks.
  2. You must put in some sort of effort for the challenge like taking time for a bath or doing charity work or whatever it is that you plan on doing.
  3. Whatever it is that you do MUST make you feel "Positive & Relaxed".
  4. Blog about it or make some kind of public post about it once a day (instagram or twitter or whatever).
  5. The goal is to obtain a better outlook and to be more inclined to take some personal time for yourself.  Everyone is so negative and people are so tense nowadays, we all need to be more positive and relaxed.


Quick note about Sewing 101 B.  It is coming, I promise.  I had my nephew over last night, so I had to put my stuff away.  We actually worked on his blog (Robot Dylan) which is more or less food and project based.  What he doesn't know is that I'm planning on turning all of his recipes into a cookbook for him for Christmas.  So, working on his blog is kind of important.


Today for the challenge, I am going to get started with using my new exercise bike.  My nephew excitedly spent about 2 hours off and on last night on the bike - "getting ready for the summer" as he told me.  He spent part of that 2 hours reading and pedaling slowly - so I hope that isn't on his summer to-do list.  I think my goal is going to be "an episode of Unsolved Mysteries".  How long is that?  44 minutes or something?  I'm not looking to really work up a sweat.  My goal is to get myself moving in the evening.  I think this is a real positive thing.

Update: I only made it 34 minutes and then one of the pedals came undone.  I called it good for the day, took a shower, and then spent a while screwing the pedal back on.  I think I'm going to call this my 'lazy workout'.  Despite the name, I burned almost 300 calories.  So that's something.

My relaxation aspect of this, aside from the hot shower I plan on taking after bike-time, is going to be chilling with my dog.  Buster and I have puppy class tonight.
