I’ve noticed the number thirty-five quite a bit in my life lately.
I try to excercise every day, so my Apple Watch keeps track of my daily physical activity/excercise and gives me cool little awards every now and then. I’m currently on a thirty-five day streak.
In the last two and a bit years I’ve completely changed my life by embracing a healthy, active lifestyle. This has not only had massive impact on my body – I’ve managed to lose thirty-five kilograms, but my mental health has drastically improved to the point of not taking antidepressants for the first time in six or more years.
I walked from Byron Bay to Ballina today. I was so proud to be the first walker to finish the full length: thirty five kilometres which took me thirty-five thousand steps in just over 5 hours. I can’t have imagined being able to do this three years ago.
I’m currently in my thirty-fifth year of my life – I turn thirty-five on the first of September. I’ve been dreading this birthday, even more than usual, and I think I know the reason why. In Australia we commonly use ten year demographic groupings, which means come September 1 this year I’ll be selecting the ’35-44′ dropdown instead of the 25-34 one. It’s like aging ten years in a day.
But instead of seeing this as aging 10 years in a day I’ve decided to see it as starting the next ten years of my life. And for that, I’ve never felt more excited or prepared.
