Heres a thought I had on my C25K 'run' last night:
If Resentments are the #1 offender, then Ego has to be #2. In fact most resentments are probably rooted in ego in some way so theres that. One way my ego burns me is resting on my laurels. So Iv lost 15 pounds, I can slack right? Wrong. Bad move. Need to not fall for the banana in the tailpipe again. Keep motived. Keep making goals. My 'goals' on my last post were pretty wussy. I was feeling quite small and kinda barely keepin my chin up. I know theres a word to decribe that feeling but it eludes me at the moment. Anyhoo Iv decided to set a bit more ambitious goals because: 1. Im feeling stronger today 2. why the hill not, what have I got to lose by NOT making goals? Not failing? My perceptions are another one of my worst enemies! My thinking is defective, this Iv known for a long time. Need to stop accepting my faulty thinking and try to *gasp*-change it?
1* 1000 minutes baby, you are MINE this month
2* 5 pound c25k challenge
3* c25k 3x week
4* finish week 4 and 5
5* ST 2x week-anything, videos, SP ST, gym-I WILL make it happen
6* sign up for a 5k
7* get DD signed up for summer camp
8* stay on track at DH's family reunion at the end of the month
9. yoga, practice 1x week even at home (it can count as ST too!)
10. get to Sat womens meeting at least 2x
11. make a date with a girlfriend to just hang out
12. go on a hike, I dont care if its hot, I wanna go anyhow.
I need these goals. Otherwise Im just going to wimper along and nothing will ever change. Even if I dont accomplish all of these goals, I am accepting failure by not making them in the first place. This has to change! Stop the Insanity! (who remembers that?! lol) Speaking of Insanity, I keep finding myself watching the infomercial. I like that theres no equipment to buy, no gimmicks, just pure ST/Cardio. My coworker is a BB coach and wants me to join her team. Im really concidering it.
BTW THANKS SO MUCH everbody for your kind comments on my last post, I know that a big part of why Im feeling stronger today.
