Late Night Productivity Update

Filled 6 pages in my mini Moleskin with lists of clothes that would be good to pack! My plan is to list everything I think of, then go through and cross off things I won’t actually wear as often or really need. Then I pack my bag, take out almost a fourth of it and put all that back, then leave my bag partially empty for room if I find anything cool on y travels. This plan worked exceptional well when I was in London last summer, and my bag was never over the allowed 50 pounds. I’m ordering my airline carry on approved hiking backpack tomorrow! Found a CHEAP one on Amazon, so I’m going to see if I can fit what I need for the plan ride in it, as well as enough for my 10 day break when I’ll be traveling across Spain and France to see a few friends living abroad as well this year. 40 more days! It’s finally beginning to feel real 🙂 I’ve never been so ready for anything in my entire life.

But all this list making has caused me to put off my workout until now, at midnight. (Yes, I’m crazy. But I was sick with a stomach ache earlier today and the medicine is just now kicking in!) Again, I leave in 40 days. I want to be in the best shape of my life so I’ll have enough energy and strength to do all the things I want to do and be able to climb mountains like they’re nothing. No rest days anymore! 40 days and 40 nights of “Insanity” workouts will hopefully get me into that peak physical fitness level I aspire to reach. People have done it before, and had amazing results after even just 20 days of non-stop dedication. I’ve seen some results in the first 30 days since I’ve been doing Insanity, but my dedication wavered because I claimed I was usually too tired after work. No excuses anymore!! 40 is a magical number (and 4 is my lucky number) so I truly think I can make a positive, healthy change in 40 days. Ok, enough of my obsessive list making and INSANE desire to get incredibly fit before I leave. Gotta go make some progress!!
