I confess: I stepped out of my comfort zone this week and it was...fine. (I'm still here!). I recommend it, whatever it may be in your case...as long you are comfortable with the idea!
I confess: I went to Pilates (this is not the comfort zone thing I refer to above), dreading it a bit because I hadn't been in quite awhile, and my friends who used to take the class can no longer make it. Self motivation and exercise are not my forte. And I was pleasantly surprised that:
a. A couple of the women I knew from before were there, and had ALSO been skiving off since the same time as me (January is nothing if not predictable for forcing women to contemplate their bodies!) so we had a good giggle over our mutual slacker-dom.
b. It was as if I'd never left. Oh sure, it hurt a lot the next day and my "plank" was more of a grunting momentary elevation, but the teacher, who must get bored I fear, has to kind of go back to basics at the beginning of each term. So I didn't feel too overwhelmed by the moves.
I confess: I'm struggling to get back into The Returned - the French zombie drama (I had dvr'ed it, it's finished now). David gave up after episode one of season two, I've sat through the next one and I'm just not feeling it like the first series. It's so slooow and the mystery feels like it's never going to pay off. Is anyone still watching it? I'm actually having the same issue with Sleepy Hollow season two, to a lesser degree because I don't have to concentrate as hard on subtitles. Which is another thing - watching The Returned highlighted to me how distracted I have become with my phone and/or Kindle fire while watching t.v. - it's really pretty atrocious, and I can't do it while watching a show I have to read subtitles for, obviously. So maybe the problem isn't the show, but me? I need to step away from the gadgets! ;-0
