Blogging Challenge – Day 9


18 days ago by Geir

The bad:

  1. It has been an uncomfortably hot day.
    The calendar might show September, but it sure doesn’t feel like it, with day after day with triple digit temperatures. The only good time to take my daily walk on days like today is in the morning before it heats up too much…

  2. It has been a very busy work day.
    Due to a time sensitive work project, I was not able to walk this morning.

  3. It has been one of those days when nothing seems to go my way.
    After spending hours putting together a large inventory order, my supplier’s shopping cart system crashed just as I was submitting my order - my cart got reset, and I will have to redo the work.

The good:

  1. I did complete my daily walk.
    I delayed as long as possible, but even with a late evening walk, it was still very hot. My body did not feel like walking today, but I did push through, and kept my streak alive.

  2. I am writing my daily blog entry.
    Today was a day where I really needed the inspiration found in a tweet by Isaac Morehouse: “Those days when you start to wonder why tf you’re doing this daily posting anyway, just do the ritual anyway!” Or, like the Nike slogan goes: “Just Do It.”

The conclusion:

For every day that passes, I get closer to my goal. I will complete the 30 day blogging challenge, and I will walk for at least 1 hour every single day of the challenge. Failure is not an option, I will Just Do It.
