Project 365 Burnout
We got a new BOSU ball from Amazon, because it was on sale under deep discount the other day. When Todd had his running injury and went to physical therapy, they had him do exercises on the BOSU ball there. My work gym has one too. We thought it would be good for both of us to incorporate it into our exercise regimen.
I have something to admit... I feel really burned out by Project 365. The daily photo-taking, photo-processing, and blogging is really getting to me. Especially now that it gets dark so early. On the weekdays I work all day. By the time I get home it's dark. Then it's like I have this obligation hanging over me. What should I take a photo of? MORE food photos again??? The photo-processing and blogging ties me to my computer for quite a while every. single. night. To be honest, I can't wait until I've done the last P365 post on December 31st. I think after that I'll have a lot more time to do other things. So what's keeping me going? Well, I've made it this far, might as well finish it! Plus, I do get enjoyment out of going back and reading my old posts. And also, Todd really encourages me by telling me how much he enjoys my documentation of our days and our fun times together. That does warm my heart and keep me going.
If you're still doing Project 365, what keeps you going? Why do you think you've made it this far? And what do you think you'll get out of completing it?
