Did I tell you this? On July 1, I set a timer for sixty minutes and then I sat down and wrote. The first time the timer went off, I got up off my butt and did a jumping jack.
I’d set the timer another two to four times throughout the day to write and each time it would go off, I’d get up and do one more jumping jack than I did before. By the end of the month, I did eighty jumping jacks in a row. In total, I did 3,240 jumping jacks in July.
It’s a nice little cardio blast for your heart after participating in a sedentary activity of sitting and writing.
In addition to the jumping jacks, I worked out 29 out of 31 days, an average of 27 minutes a day. I’ll take those statistics.
Here are the rest of my grades.
Remind myself that the quality of my thoughts determines the quality of my life
Answer an email
Call and talk to mom
Write 100 words on meditation
Take Vitamin D
Write 500 words in book
I would have received more A’s, but my computer was in the shop for the last couple of days of July and I didn’t have access to my Scrivener files to write. I could have done Duolingo on my phone, but I hate using my phone.
How’d you do?
It gets easier the longer you do it. I promise.
Okay, I can’t promise. I just know it got easier for me. Don’t trust a data set of one. But don’t dismiss a data set of one, either. Or maybe you can dismiss a data set of one. I don’t know. It’s shocking how little I know. Just shocking.
