Oh wowzers – I can remember my countdown saying I had 170 days until I went to Japan and now it’s at 100. It’s going so fast. I’ve got my Operation Japan plan written up on my fridge – lose weight, save money, learn Japanese – and feel like I’ve made insignificant progress toward any of them.
Weight loss wise I’ve only lost about 1 kg net, although managed to pack on a few then get rid of them. I can blame being sick and weekends away and all the rest but really for the next 100 days, I need to give 100% (that’s like 1% a day, yeah? lolz).
Saving money has been going okay but, because I’ve had time off work sick, I’m not earning as much as I’d planned. I guess I’ll be fine, what with my tax refund etc.
Learning Japanese isn’t going too bad either but it feels like the more I learn, the more I realised I don’t know! Yikes.
Apart from saving money, I could pretty much get away with doing nothing about the other two. I mean people travel all the time without knowing a word of the local language and it’s not like there is some magical weight that makes holidays more fun, but for me they are important. I want to achieve these things in the next 100 days. I want to feel that I’ve done all that I can.
Today I’d planned to get to the fun run at Princes Park but still feel a bit iffy in the gut so didn’t make it (the bad weather didn’t help either) but went out for a 5 km run later in the day. The legs felt so very bad. I dunno how I can regress so much with having a week off! Still it was good to be back into it. Hopefully there’ll be no more sickness etc for the next 100 days.
