Remembering why and how I started....

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

So I have been procrastinating about writing this blog because I don’t know where to begin! For the last couple meaning 2 months I have not been meeting my goals. So this had me wondering am I setting goal that are not realistic for me or am I just lacking. I have come to the conclusion that I am lacking. Don’t get me wrong after reviewing the last set of goals and the ones before I realize that these are goals that I should be able to accomplish because I have done it before so there is really no excuse besides I have not been focusing and pushing myself like I should.

Yes, the scale has move down a 2 or 3 pounds since last month but I should have better results than this and I will have better results this month. So to lay it out for me I have fulfilled my craving for this month by eating a turkey wrap with mayo and provolone cheese, a white chocolate cookie, and my far share of cookies which is a shame because it is only 3 days into the month. I will not feel guilty for it either or dwell in the past about it because it is said and done and I can’t go back and change what I have done but make the rest of this month/year a more successful one.

I have come a long way from the beginning of the year and there is no turning back. Yes, I still have along way to go to reach my ultimate goal, but I will do it with mistakes along the way in which I will learn from.

So as follow my goals this month will be simple. I will learn to accept me for who I am and what I have and will become in the skin I am in. There will not me no minimum weight loss amount this month or no “X” amount of days scheduled for the gym. But best believe this month and the next one will be used to evaluate my current progress, past progress, and where I would like to be in the future with my health, social, and professional life. I will also be participating in 2 challenges which consist of the BLC7 and also 1400hr of workout minutes for the month of November which I hope to excel in but all I can do is do my best and be happy with whatever the out come will be.

I have been my biggest critic over the last couple of years in regards to where my life is going and where it has been personally and professionally. At times I may be too hard on myself which may cause stress which maybe hindering my progress but time will tell.

Now with all of this being said I will still be doing some planning to get aid in the progress of my success but not as detailed as usual.

For those who have read this blog to its entirety emoticon …I just felt the need to blog and remind myself of who I started this journey for from the beginning MYSELF.

    Good luck. You can do it. You've got this far so you know your unstoppable. I know it's hard to at times as you obviously want the best for yourself but try and be kinder to yourself and focus on all you have achieved rather than what you haven't and it may make things a bit easier.
