This morning I posed a question to the Pixies after an exciting first week of BLC....
What's one thing you noticed from last week that you plan to work harder at for the coming?
Seems like a simple enough question right? Then why do *I* find it really hard to answer? Because I'm an over thinker by nature...half my problem I'm certain! So many thoughts have crept up, but I keep saying "Nope, that's not a good one...maybe this one is better to start with because it will help me achieve XYZ and I can build from there"
What I need to know first is....Exactly where is THERE? It use to be a number staring back at me, kinda sorta still is...I'll always be a numbers girl, but it REALLY is much bigger than that!
I have this vision of what *I* see myself as when I reach THERE! The scale is showing me 130ish, but the visual that keeps moving to the forefront is my glance in the mirror! Not just how I look , but also how I feel!
Here's my reflection: (full length mirror of course LOL)
There's a 5'6" girl that is at a healthy weight for her height and body type with definition! She's wearing a huge smile, twirling in front of the mirror, standing tall,and proud of her accomplishments! She looks to her reflection and says "You're finally there" and decides she is determined to never sell herself short again, because the person staring back is exactly who she chooses to be for HER... not anyone else!!
I know how to get there...with determination, using that visual as the primary focus, just as I did when this journey started! I was not comfortable then and can't allow myself to be comfortable now because I am NOT!
The answer to the question is now very clear....as I SEE that girl, she will not be all that she desires without making the commitment to Strength Training! Sure...she'll be happy with the number, she'll be smiling, she'll be proud, but not nearly as proud as she would have been had she dug a little deeper to get that definition... and not feel like she still sold herself a little short!
I have the tools, I have the knowledge, I have the desire, I have the motivation, I have the support, I AM determined, and it starts NOW!!

First option is to simply complete the task for the given day! The challenge counts down to Christmas, so as the holiday approaches and everyone has less time, the task is easier!
Second option is to complete the task for the given day, and add the previous...building from day to day as 12 days of Christmas song does!
The object here is to keep all our hard work over the last 12 weeks at the forefront and not let good habits slip! Hope you'll visit the Forest and let the Pixies know how your 12 Days Before Christmas are progressing...that extra accountability could be the best gift to yourself!
