365 ONE: day 1 & 2Posted: January 10, 2012
So its day two…meaning its 363 days to go still….HOLY SH**********T!!!!
I guess I technically need to report on two days since yesterday was my introduction to the whole 365 ONE Challenge on here, where I must blog daily. I accepted the challenge and then I went home and had to complete all the criteria I had set forth for myself.
My question is = why did I not pick only one thing to do for a whole year and not ELEVEN friggin’ criteria to do DAILY!!!! It’s too late…I must now take the challenge. Ugh. I was trying to explain the whole thing to my mum on the phone back in London and she said something along the lines of “Are you crazy?” and started laughing! What did she ask me…same as what I just asked…
Mum: “Zoe, why didn’t you just pick one thing to do for a whole year??”
Me: “I don’t know. I should have. But it didn’t sound as extreme, and you know, I’m extreme girl”
Like I am some kind of superhero – “Extreme Girl” to the rescue….of herself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My mum did make a valid point though, in that I blog daily as one criteria and I have to upload a new improvised piece every day to my Zoe The Actor blog, and this is evidence of me doing it, but the rest of the criteria like the fitness, cardio, daily dance, transportation crazo rules I guess you will have to take my word for it. I wanted to upload a dance video every day too but then I discovered that the music of the song would be heard and that’s copywrighted…so I don’t know – maybe I will come up with something along the way as proof or something to show other than to write about it – silent video of me dancing???? Any ideas???
Mum: “They will just have to take your word for it. So then no one will know if you don’t do it”
Me: “I would know!!!! And that’s the whole point! I would know I cheated!!”
And that’s it. This is my challenge, so folks – you may have to take my word for it that I did the number of sit-ups and push-ups and such but I will not lie to you. If I fail a criteria then you will be the first to know! Let’s hope I make all ELEVEN all 365 DAYS!! I really don’t want to fail 😦
Day 1: January 9th 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!
Cardio was = Wii Just Dance 2
Dance of the Day was = “Its Raining Men” by The Weather Girls
Improvised Acting Video to other blog was what I refer to as = “Big Glasses”
Anything to Note = Day 1 was hard!! I decided to add a fruit and vegetable only detox as my Eat Healthy criteria…..why would I make it harder….shoot me! I wanted to go on a detox. Thinking of a week of just fruit and veg, maybe longer. But not sure as rehearsal packed schedule starts so hmmm.
Day 2: January 10th 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!!
Cardio = Running up and down stairs/Walking
Dance of the Day = “Family Affair” by Mary J. Blige
Improvised Acting Video uploaded to my other blog was what I refer to as = “Office Theft”
Anything to Note = Haven’t actually seen the whole of my uploaded video yet haha!! Recorded it and then my boss came in while I was playing back so just uploaded it! And still haven’t had time yet to view it! Today wasn’t even a busy day compared to what it can be and will be starting tomorrow and I found myself crunched with time – meaning, I did the 20 push-ups in the office bathroom!!! I also danced to the song in the office with the door shut. I’m sure the offices across the road were laughing their asses off if they saw anything 🙂 I feel like this may be a way for me to incorporate the criteria into my days so I expect more to come ahead of fitness in the loo and dancing to the skyscrapers across the way!!!
Oh, and note to self: don’t do the stretching exercises in tight jeans!!!!!!!
