I saw a quote last week from Jason Cohen of WPEngine. He said ““You spend 99.9% of your life working on the path, and 0.1% experiencing the euphoria of an exit or the disappointment of a final failure. If you’re not fulfilled by the journey, you’re wasting your life.” That really struck me, I feel like I’m not doing enough to enjoy the journey of this IRONMAN.
So I decided that I need to find more ways to enjoy the journey. The first thing that came to mind was that I do all these workouts with nothing interesting to show for it. Of course I enter the time and distance and notes in the program that my coach and I use, but that’s not very fun. And that’s when I had the idea that is reaching fruition today – Selfie Sunday!
I’ll be taking selfies of each workout throughout the week (forcing me to smile for at least a couple seconds during each workout!) and posting them to the blog on Sunday. After doing it for a week I can say that it actually did make a difference, I looked forward to taking the selfie so it became a little reward for doing the workout, plus I now feel like I have a keepsake for myself for each workout.
I’ve had a number of people say that they would like to post selfies, but they are worried because they’ve seen internet trolls misuse the personal info that’s embedded. The good news is you can remove your personal information before you post your pictures. even better, easier, and more thorough than what I was using before, just use FileMind QuickFix! http://download.cnet.com/FileMind-QuickFix/3000-12511_4-75563232.html
So without further ado, here is the inaugural Selfie Sunday:
