"How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser."
I think this quote could definitely include that of a healthier life style. Changing you lifestyle is a huge challenge in itself. Along the way you also meet many smaller challenges that you must over come to meet your ultimate goal, mine being A Healthier Me including mind, spirit, and body.
One larger challenge that I am trying to over come at this time is one that needs much discipline. I am trying to get up earlier so I can get my workouts done in the morning. I feel so much better through out the day and have so much more energy when I can do this. When I started my journey, my life was so chaotic I was just happy getting my workout in. Now my workouts have become a part of my day and I would like to give them my time and dedication with as little disruption as I can. For me this means doing them in the morning, which in turn will also give me time to relax and clear my mind for the day.
I am determined to do this and think I need to do it one step at a time. With this said, beginning Monday (tomorrow) I am going to make myself get up when my alarm goes off. If I can do this for a whole week, next week I can set it even earlier. Then I will be at the time I want everyday and they say after you do it so long your body just adjusts. I hope so. I am going to pray about this and maybe the Lord will even step in and help me (of course he will).
