Why do I have such a good feeling about this year? Well, today I went to the gym, after about 10 days away from it; and I've somehow managed to increase my fitness level. I lasted longer, and on harder levels than I've managed before, and I don't feel bad for it (though whether it's a different story tomorrow we've yet to see).
In terms of fitness/ability I have also finally been able to do a series of squats. This statement especially is a big deal for me as for the last 5+ years, I've never been able to squat down to do anything without excruciating pain, or just falling over all together. Never fun when some one wants you to crouch down to look at something with them; or worse yet - and ladies I'm sure you'll know exactly what I mean here - when in a not-so-pleasant public convenience facility, because let's be honest, nobody wants to sit down in that sorta mess, but if you gotta go...
In terms of things away from exercising, I have also now quit my job. I have 7 shifts to go before I'm done, but that's bearable. I am so happy to be done with that place, and I think my health will improve a lot further from not having to commute, not having the financial strain, and from not being stressed out constantly.
Okay, so I've not been responsible enough to sort another job before I do this, but I am confident I will be able to sort something else quickly. And I'm quite happy, in fact almost keen, to temp whilst I find the right role for me.
Anyway, as I'm on such a fitness kick, I figured it was about time I did the sensible thing and invested in a proper sports bra. I've just ordered this:
