In ancient Biblical times, the fiftieth year was a year of Jubilee: a year of freedom and celebration from that which bound an individual. (Lev. 25:10) As I begin my 50th year (I’m actually over a week into it!) I have spent some time reflecting on what oppresses me – or specifically, what areas of my life are holding me back.
I declare for myself a year of Jubilee!
This year, I plan on taking on 50 small challenges over the course of 50 weeks. Each challenge is a small something that has great impact on my physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual life. The challenges are cumulative (week one’s challenge continues through the remaining forty-nine weeks).
Each week will begin with the Sabbath. There will be a two-week break during August. I’ll be taking my Comps at that point… and let’s face it, that’s enough to deal with at that time. 😉
Week One’s challenge: Cardio six times a week, for at least 40 min.
Today is Wednesday – and so far, I’ve worked out 3/3 days. (That includes today at the hotel gym! Go me!)
