Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics.This week’s Tuesday Topic: What is your word for 2021! You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
This is the first time I’ve picked a word for the year. I’ve always thought about doing this but never followed through on it. It took me a few days to think of my word for this year. I narrowed it down to three options but finally decided on RESET.
According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of reset is ‘to set again or anew’. After surviving 2020, I think that we’re all in need of a little reset. This is how I’ll be applying the word this year.
Reset in my fitness journey
Luckily I haven’t struggled with consistency when it comes to my workouts, primarily because it’s one of the few things that has kept me sane and functional throughout the pandemic. Something I can work on is a reset on my approach to fitness. One thing I’m changing? Saying I don’t have enough time to stretch. That’s just not true so I will be getting in pre and post workout stretches regularly. I’ll also be working on the ‘less is more’ mindset. You know I absolutely love Peloton, but I’m sure there are times I do too many workouts for my ‘stack’. I never, ever workout to the point of exhaustion, but I can add in more active recovery type workouts. I know that will be beneficial, but this will be a work in progress throughout the year.
Reset in my personal life
I don’t discuss my personal life too much on this blog too much, but for those that don’t know I was married in my 20s for a few years. Yesterday was actually the 10 year anniversary of my divorce (I celebrate it every year, lol). I’ve had one serious relationship since then that ended years ago and I haven’t dated much since then. I’ve tried a few dating apps, but haven’t had much luck. Over the weekend I deleted my dating app profile because I want – you guessed it – a reset. I’m going to take all new photos this week and try joining a few ‘new to me’ dating apps. I want to make a real effort to put myself out there more – I’m not getting any younger! I also want to reset my mindset. I think that it was quite easy to feel down or get in a negative mindset last year. Current events didn’t magically disappear or get better once 2021 started, but what I can fix is how I handle all the craziness. Adopting a more positive mindset is a reset that I know will be 100% beneficial.
Reset at work
The last 3-4 months at my job have been…interesting (I’ll just leave it at that). I feel like a lot is very unknown right now, but I do know that things will change and reset once we get a new leader for my team. I’m not sure if we will totally need to revamp programs or start over from scratch based on the new vision for the team but it will definitely be interesting this year!
