My arms are quivering a little while I type this–I just finished working out and my arms feel like Jello without the mold. I was supposed to have been working out all last week, but I had a couple of false starts. So today is technically my *second* first day. Team Little Village was a glimmer in the eye of LV editorial intern Kelly Ostrem, and I’m trying to make good on my part to be part of the team.
1) Team LV doesn’t really see each other so often. So we have to find a way to motivate each other online.
2) Little to no funding: In our current incarnation, LV doesn’t exist to be a money-maker. We’re the community spirit driven sort. So we have to find inexpensive alternatives for the group when we get together.
3) Finding the right group activities: Not everyone likes to ice skate. What can we all do that’s fun enough that we all clear our schedules on a Saturday afternoon? (Ideas are welcome.)
There are more, for sure. Like my personal challenge is figuring out a goal. “Eat more vegetables and exercise more” doesn’t cut it, but I’m not unhappy enough about my weight to make my goal losing 20 pounds. I don’t want to be a stick, but I want to stop feeling like lethargic poop. I also think my 5’5″, 155ish body has started to waddle in my 28th year. “Balance more, waddle less” is also a goal not achievable without concrete steps.
I’m hoping to have my first second day tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll let y’all know how that goes.
