Out of the comfort zone

Just a quick post to say I'll probably be AWOL for the next two weeks as I'm going out bush with work, leaving tomorrow. I have no idea what kind of access to the internet I'll have (probably none!).

It will have its benefits though - I likely won't be able to complete my goal of 100 km running for November because of this (Currently at 40 km, probably doing 10k tomorrow), but I WILL be able to complete the goal of getting out of my comfort zone for the entire time. I will have absolutely no control over the food I have access to, and likely will have no chance to exercise at all (Unless I do situps in my sleeping bag or something!!). I will also know NOBODY at all. Kind of an eating disordered / social anxiety person's nightmare, right?? Exactly why I should be doing it! Plus I get $...

I'm flying to the capital of Australia (Canberra) for this, so hopefully if I'm lucky I'll get a short amount of time to sightsee, as last time I was there I was 2 years old :)

Anyway, I will be back to stalk everyone's two week's worth of blog posts soon! Ciao!

Oh - I was going to mention, for those of you in the US - check out Earndit, it's a site that rewards you for your workouts. You get points for everything you do and then can cash them in for rewards - there's clothes, food and stuff. I've been a member for a while and have heaps of points but can't cash them in because most of the stuff is US only. I'm staying a member though because one day there might be something I can get, haha - and then I'll be rolling in the points!


  1. I hope you have a good time out and about! Enjoy your time as much as you can dear
    And cool site, I will have to check it out!

  2. Have fun bush walking. As you said this will be a great way to step out of your comfort zone. Just enjoy it and live in the moment :)

    Have a safe flight!

  3. Good luck!! I think it's great to do things like this to break out of out comfort zones. For the past two days, I have eaten literally nothing but cookies, cake, and pasta.. and I lived! I didn't even care. I was having too much fun :) hopefully it all goes well for you!!

  4. Have fun with your work stuff! Good for you for making a conscientious effort to stay out of your comfort zone.
