It’s been more than four months since my last run, getting back on the road has been postponed several times. There have been plenty of excuses not to run. But now, now I want to run – again.
It’s almost a year since I started taking my bike to school, to work, well to everywhere pretty much. I must admit that I see that as one of my biggest personal achievements. I would never have imagined, that when given the choice between my bike and public transportation, I would actually choose my bike. And that makes me so proud. I’m not a better person than anyone else, but I am a happier person, than I were before, I also feel a lot better, both physically and mentally.
Biking is now a very important part of my routine and I’m ready to see if I can make running a part of my life as well.
So back to it, the first run.
My first run was.. easy. I’m prone to injuries, so I’m going to start out very easy. Today was sort of to warn my body, that I’ll start running again. 1 minute run and 3 minute walk in 5 sets with 5 minutes warm-up brisk walk and the same for a cool down. It was very easy. It was relaxing to be back on the road again. The sun was shining, and I exchanged smiles with a man in his 60’s who was out for a run.
Next time will be on Wednesday – 2 minute run and 3 minute walk in 4 sets.
My word for 2014 is forward and therefore I will expand this little series started by Miranti over at Pen & Peplum.
I will not only look at what was true for 1999-2004 but also my dreams and plans for 2024.
I’m one of those persons that always appear prepared for pretty much everything. I never show up late, my calendar is always updated and I pay close attention to detail.
But, lately I’ve found that I’ve become much more of a scatterbrain and I hate that (I don’t hate everyone who is scatterbrained, it’s just not how I see my self).
I’ve spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out what is different, and I think I come to a conclusion. In the past few months I haven’t used my calendar as much and I’ve also stopped putting Important documents into their folders, so I need to go back to doing that. I wasn’t completely satisfied with neither my calendar nor my filing system before so I think this is a good excuse to revisit both and try to find something that suits me better.
I will post my progress as the projects move along.
I posted my evening routine a month ago and I thought that you guys would like the hear about my morning routine.
As I mentioned when I posted my evening routine, I don’t follow this every day, but when it happens I feel so much more relaxed, and ideal morning.
- Get up first time the alarm clock rings
- Open the door for the balcony
- Turn on the radio
- Pee (we all have to do it)
- Brush teeth
- (If I take a bath, this is the time to do it, but usually I do it at night)
- Brush hair
- Drink one large glass of water
- Put on water for tea
- Prepare breakfast
- Make the bed
- Turn on the computer
- Eat breakfast and read the news
- Check email
- Turn of computer
- Do the dishes
- Find clothes
- Brush teeth again
- Get dressed
- Make sure that the bag is packed
So at the beginning of my Filofax I have a list of goals I want to reach in the new year. I keep the list here in order to stay focused.
The goals are pretty much the same as in my 2014 Plan post.
- Finish 12 projects
- Preserve 12 different foods
- Watch 50 new movies
- Bike 3000 km
- Walk 750 km
- 52 new things (not including movies)
- Bake 12 new cakes
Apart from this list of goals I also have a little “pep talk” in the front. It’s focused around one word “forward” which, so far, is my word of the year, I’m not sure it’s going to stick for the entire year, but for now it seems appropriate, I might explain why I chose that word in another blog post.
I’m not going to share the exact wording with you (it’s in Danish and it would probably take me quite a while to translate it, to give off the same meaning), but it’s basically a reminder to let go, to take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities and challenges I’m going to meet in 2014.
We were warm, we were squeezed, we were dancing and singing, we were happy. And we still are.
I don’t know where some of the reviewers were, but I think the sound was good, not amazing, but does it really matter when you know all the songs by heart? No one goes to a concert if they don’t LOVE the artist(s). And if you don’t like costume changes maybe you should just attend a piano recital instead.
One thing that did annoy me (and it always does) was the 20-25 minute break between the Luke James and Beyoncé, the mood dropped and people pushed closer to the stage (psycho-bitch who thought it was okay to walk right into me and keep pushing, and then thought I was crazy when I turned around and pushed back and asked her to stop it, she could have started a panic or pushed me over with that selfish behavior – I usually don’t call anyone bitch, but if you try to kill me, I will.. You should have bought golden circle tickets if you wanted to get close). I hate that period between artists.
But I loved the show, so much energy and life. Worth every penny!
Beyoncé is so beautiful, and she handled an idiot who thought it was okay to clap her in the ass very professionally (he was then escorted out of the building).
I haven’t made an about me page yet (it’s on my to-do list), so I wanted to share a few facts about myself.
- I’m blonde and I always have been, I’ve never coloured my hair, but I’ve considered it numerous times.
- Everyone thinks I am extremely organised, but they haven’t seen my apartment. Yes, my notes and bag and everything else is organised, but my apartment is a mess. It is an everlasting project to keep a path free on the floor.
- I don’t ever wear geometrical patterns, but a lot of animal print and flowers.
- I have an iPhone with a pink cover.
- I have a passion for landscape and nature photography. It’s been pushed aside lately, but I hope I can find time for it again soon.
My name is Heidi, I’m 23 and I live in Copenhagen.
I’m currently a student and if all goes well I’ll be ready for “real” life next summer.
This blog is for a little of everything, but mainly plans/ideas and lists. I’ve had a ton of blogs since I was 15, but none of them really kept my interest for too long. I think it was mostly because I had a few blogs at a time, I’m not gonna make that mistake again, so I will be concentrating on this blog, which also means that I will post everything that is relevant to my life (luckily my life is 40% lists, 30% ideas, 15% daydreaming and 15% fun).
I recently tried finding my first blog ever, and to give you an idea of how many blogs I’ve been through I got this email back from Xanga when I requested my username.
Yes that’s right, 17 different blogs!
Most only contain a couple of posts but still, from the age of 15 to the age of 18 I had 17 different blogs on Xanga alone.
I will post a list of a few blog ideas and hopefully a disclaimer/rules/”letter of intent” sometime this weekend.
All the best,
