Hello, dear reader. My name is Amanda, and I’m your MoveU blogger for the school year! To break the ice, here are three points about me:
– I’m a second-year student at U of T.
– I love to read, write, and consider myself a film and TV aficionado.
– I’m a beginner when it comes to being healthy.
I know what you’re thinking about the last point: my validity as a MoveU blogger must be questionable since I’m currently inactive. I mean, I do understand that; as someone who thinks that tossing and turning my pillows counts as a physical activity, I’m wondering how I got to be a blogger for MoveU too. But I guess that’s the point—I’m not starting this blog with my whole exercise regimen (or lack thereof) already down pat. This blog is about how I am going to take a total 180 turn in my life.
I don’t want to start off with big, extravagant, and lofty goals, but I don’t want to be vague either. So my main goal is to go from a sedentary to an active lifestyle. I hope to conquer that by experimenting with new activities (archery, anyone?), become confident with the way I look, beat the fear of going to the gym, and to become more productive instead of lounging around in my pajamas during a TV marathon. I want to be able to say, “Hey, my body can do amazing things!” and I want to walk tall and proud with my accomplishments over my shoulder. Most of all, I just don’t want to be lazy anymore; I miss those days when I was a kid running on an endless supply of energy and I plan on getting back to that mode.
However, I keep on having the same goals every year, and seldom do I follow through. Yet, with the blog going on, I’m positive that this year is going to be a change for me. So if you’re along for the run (not drive, because this blog is about physical activity), then feel free to join along on this journey. Why do this alone when you can have support, right?
I’m serious though, no rides will be taken.
