Found this poem while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Anything is Possible By Unknown
If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW. Not for any grand cause, necessarily... but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream. You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. HAVE FUN. DIG DEEP. STRETCH. DREAM BIG.
Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days. And there will be bad days. There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
PERSIST. Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.
TRUST. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lazy afternoons. Of lasting friends. Of all the things that will cross your path this year. The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
Today is day 3. This was a successful target day for food and water.
Yesterday I was under on both which helped to compensate for the overage on the frist day. My average daily have been within guidelines.
I have committed to beginning my excercise plan on week 3. This is WW behavioral modification schedule (something that I did successfully for 10 years but allowed to get away from me in the last 10 years).
NOTE TO SELF: Do not stop journaling (accounting for your results), weighing (monitor your progress), verifying portions (which is where my I started to fail), or committment to self and exercise (overall just a really GOOD practice). 2334 days ago
