So the new list for the DayZero Project Mark II is now live for viewing. Wish me luck. Hopefully I will do better than my last attempt!!!
I tried to do the DayZero project and failed. I have taken the page down whilst I put together a new list. Some of the 101 may be the same as in the original DayZero Project.
For those of you who don’t know about the DayZero Project, it is basically setting yourself 101 goals to be completed in 1001 days.
My first attempt I failed.
But as the saying goes.
If at first you don’t succeed; try try again.
So last night whilst at work I completed another DayZero task.
To write a letter to myself and open it in 10 years. I actually found it really hard to do.
Just what exactly do you write to yourself?
Was a little strange if truth be told. The idea came from when I started secondry school in 1999, out form tutor told us to write ourselves a letter which he was going to keep until our last day of our last year in 2004. We all wrote one, but we never did get them back.
All I have to do now is seal it and put it in a safe area. But not the kind of safe area where its so safe it can never be found again. (I suspect this is what my tutor had done).
I’m on a night shift again tonight, and have very little sleep.
Family are on amber alert for crankiness tomorrow.
I’ve decided that this year is the year I will do Race for Life.
Not just because it is on my DayZero list, but also because it will also help me to achieve some of the other tasks within it. I cant actually sign up to it until my next payday, the entrance fee is now £15, which has gone up substantially since I last took part. Once I am finally signed up I will be attempting to raise money for it also. (I’ll add a link to the donation page once I start it – Just in case any of you fancy donating)
For those of you who don’t know, and cannot be bothered to click on the link supplied. Race for life is a 5k course which you can walk, jog or run. All the money raised goes towards Cancer Research UK.
By doing Race for life, not only will I be completing the Race for life task of my DayZero list, but I’ll also be completing the raise money for charity, and it will also help me with getting into Running/Jogging and in theory Lose weight. So effectively killing 4 birds with one stone.
I was planning on attempting to train by doing 2 hours cardio a day, but have been told by a friend that I should go for distance and heart rate rather than time. Followed by
220 – age is max heart rate. Then various %s do different things. 70-80% max heart rate to build cardio. 50-70% to burn fat.
Who the hell would of thought that there was maths to be applied to being fit?
So plan for the rest of the night will be looking for training plans and the what not.
As part of my DayZero project, I said I was going to rejoin a gym. So I did it.
After much consideration I decided to join the local council run gym. It’s small but is more then suffice for my needs as they currently stand. It’s cheap, and I can use any of the council leisure centres too. And best of all its in walking distance, so no forking out for buses to and from the gym. I wont even have to rush if I am due at work as it is not far from their either.
The gym I had previously been a member of had all the latest equipment, and was cheap at £20 per month and was open 24/7. The only downside is that it is miles away from where I am currently living and has no pool, which sucks as I would like to eventually start swimming when I feel a bit more body conscious.
I’m starting off slowly at the moment to try and get into it again, and with my current leg injury, which I am in the process of trying to sort out, it’s probably best to keep it at a slow pace for the time being.
I have also recently changed one of my DayZero project tasks (yes I am allowed to no where did I state they are set in stone) to take up running/jogging. Along side this I may start a new blog. or at least a new section of this blog names “Run Fat Girl Run”. Just so I can post general fitness and what not related posts.
No longer will I be the couch potato that I have been.
“Run Fat Girl, Run!!”
So today is 1st February 2012. Have you remembered to say White Rabbits, White Rabbits, White Rabbits? For those of you who may not know, its meant to bring Good Luck.
Anyway, today is the month I am attempting to blog everyday as part of my DayZero Project. I have chosen February simply because it is the shortest month, so there will be lest post’s needed, therefore making this task slightly easier, in theory. Albeit a leap year which I had forgotten about so for the next 29 days I will be frantically trying to think of a post for everyday.
“White Rabbits, White Rabbits, White Rabbits”
Wish me luck.
Oh yes! I am doing so well with this DayZero project lark!
Another one completed 🙂 HUZZAH!
I actually completed this a few days ago, and in all honesty totally forgot it was on my list. Maybe I should keep a copy of the list in a note book?
I bought my brother a 360 game which he has been wanting for longer then I can actually remember. I think it’s safe to say he is happy with this purchase as I have rarely seen him since he got it.
It’s some viking game or something? I don’t actually know in all truthfulness.
But hey. I’ve marked another of the list.
