Now, I realize April hasn’t fully wrapped up just yet. However, that one day is not going to make a bit of difference. I have no idea why I bother setting workout goals for myself. Every time I do a month of a workout challenge, I fail miserably! For some reason if I tell myself I have to work out, my subconscious refuses to let me, or I get ill, or a host of other excuses. Of course, this was a targeted upper body work out challenge. If I had set the bar a little lower, I could at least say I burned more calories than I consumed by walking/hiking/running every day. The one upside of Dublin is all the lower body workouts you get without even thinking about it!
Needless to say, I have very little to report on the April home front, other than put this in the books as another FAIL. I should do my self esteem a favor and stop setting the bar so high!
Let’s forget all about April and move on to May! I’ve decided to take May in a completely different direction. For May, I plan to do a photo challenge. I’ve seen people doing the 365 day photo challenge. I’m going to stick to a 31 day photo challenge. I’m not setting tight parameters around what the photo could be but each day a new photo will be uploaded to my Tumblr page: Eat, Drink, and Be A Merry Traveler. Follow along and let’s see how much fun we can have exploring during the month of May!
