Giving Up On Ordinary is the title of a book by Isla Dewar which I read many years ago . You can read many of the chapters as an ebook on Google .
"When Megs became a cleaner, she didn't realise that if people looked at her a cleaner would be all they saw."
This is what I sometimes think when I feel that I am under scrutiny. People attach a label, and proceed from there - student, administrative assistant, mature-age, overweight, woman, and so on.
"Megs has as full a life as the people she does for, ..."
And this is what keeps me going. I know that what other people see is a snapshot in time and only one facet of what it means to be me. I just picture how many post-it notes they will need if they want to attempt to properly attach all my labels
Today I officially started participation in the Official January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge . I attempted to start last Sunday, but for some reason was really low on energy. Today I had the beans to do the first video  and the beginners Pilates video  that I'm enjoying at the moment. And, I was able to do my first proper form roll up
Now my goal is to be able to do all four of them in time with the video!
 According to Google, the version I read was 1998, so yes, many years ago. books.google.com.au/book
