365 ONE: day 365…DAY 365!!!!!!!! I DID IT!!!!

Day 365: January 7th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!

Cardio was = traveling and carrying a million things and bouncing the little one in the ergo carrier

Dance of the Day was = “Our Love’s in (Jeopardy)” by DJ De Marchi

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Plane to America”

Anything to Note =

YES I HAVE SOMETHING TO NOTE….

I DID IT!!!!!!

365 Challenge is COMPLETE!!!!!

I can’t believe it!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe I did it!!!!

For one whole year I successfully completed the following EVERY DAY!!!!

*20 Push-Ups (with some pregnancy and post birth adjustments 🙂 !!)

*2 Minutes of the Plank (again with some post birth adjustments)

*40 Sit-Ups (and again with some post birth adjustments)

*Stretch

*Dance to One Full Song, with Each Day Being a Different Song

*Some Form of Cardio

*To Not Sit on Public Transportation (unless I was going to pass out…I think I sat for a partial moment/journey two or three times….however I didn’t sit when I had the onset of my labour contractions on the bus!)

*To Stand on Tiptoes During Every Subway Tunnel across water in NYC, or Through Two Stops if Abroad

*Eat Healthier

*Upload Improvised Piece to My Other Blog = Zoe The Actor = http://zoetheactor.wordpress.com

*Blog About it all here

AND….

*No alcohol! (which came about later as I realized I was pregnant nine days into the challenge and I hadn’t drunk those first few days, so I added it to the criteria to go all the way!)

So I ended up doing TWELVE criteria EVERY DAY for 365 days!!!

Holy cow!

I’m proud of me. I am.

Of course the perfectionist extreme girl in me is a little harsh and said I could have done it better. I am mad that I had to do any adjusting really with pregnancy and especially post birth in having a c-section! I am also annoyed that I could not go as extreme as I would have wanted with cardio in the post c-section time…but I am always hard on myself with everything! I’m never satisfied.

Funny story….I once got a fortune cookie which said “You are never satisfied with anything” in which I immediately responded with…

“I’m getting another one”

Haha!! True to the word! That was back in college.

Of course I also didn’t reach out with my 365 challenge for charity…an element that I had wanted to do but I got swept up with the million things I was doing while pregnant/with the baby, and just could not seem to get time to figure that out.

So now that is a goal…how can I touch the charitable element post 365 blog.

What is post this 365 blog anyway???

Many people have asked me what is next?

Good question!!!

I just arrived home to our apartment in NYC to this…

I have such good friends 🙂

They made it a little easier as it’s definitely weird being back in NYC after being gone for almost 6 months. And returning to this apartment with a little baby just feels bizarre! It’s like my old life suddenly got a shock to the system! Old meets new! Or old has to interfuse with new…somehow! Amid the piles and crazy amount of crap shoved all over in this apartment!

So what is next then now that this is complete??

I have a few tricks up my sleeve so watch out! Check back in. I’m certainly not going anywhere….right now.

Plus….

I just found out….

I’m pregnant. Again.

NOT!!!

Just joking!!!!

Just kidding!!!!!!

Or am I?
