Refusal Promise

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, June 09, 2012

I REFUSE to delay or postpone my workouts during this transition. Can't do it. Won't do it. I need it. I crave it.

I REFUSE to break my Minimum 8 Glasses of Water streak. If I don't have 8 by 5pm, I can tell the difference. I've been drinking 12-14 a day on average. Pissin' like a racehorse, but at least I know I'm hydrated :)

I REFUSE to let the unhealthy decisions of others tempt me back into my old ways. I am stronger than that. I am smarter than that.

I REFUSE to become stagnant. Personally. Professionally. Fitness-ally. Do you know how many people back home have said they want to hike with me?! Of course not, because I haven't told you, but YAY for in-person accountability partners!

I REFUSE to settle. For anything. Be it a job. A boy. An unhealthy meal. A negative person in my life. People always tell me I deserve better, in so many aspects. Guess what? I do! You should shoot for the stars. Even if you don't make it, you'll land among the clouds. I am worthy. We are worthy. Don't settle.

I REFUSE anything that won't help me succeed. Which is why I will never refuse to listen to advice and insights from my SparkleLovelies. Even if y'all say something that may not necessarily be what I want to hear, I know it comes from a place of understanding. A place of friendship. A place of love.

I REFUSE to leave you behind. I will not walk in front of you.

I REFUSE to be left behind. I will not follow you.

I REFUSE to be anything other than right here beside you, as we cheer each other to our goals. Rah-rah each others' accomplishments. I'm a huge 'WOOOOO!!'er (Just ask everyone I go to concerts and sporting events with, haha)

These are my Refusal Promises to me. And to you.

We're in this together. Let's git-r-done!!

  I need a little refusal right now! - I REFUSE to give up - lost 1.75 lbs in last 2 weeks (was not able to weigh last week) - not great, but baby steps - going down and the lowest I have weighed in at LEAST 10 years.

I understand about the water - I drink a minimum of 80 oz. per day - the bathroom stops eventually get better after about 750 days in a row! I find that is also best to get most of it in before 8:00 at night or I'm up though the night!

    I particularly connect to "I REFUSE to settle." I've done far too much of that in the past 10 years, and I REFUSE to do so any longer.

Love the list!! Thanks! Glad to have you by my side (and I'm there for you too)!

    You are such an encouragement, your committment is inspiring and something to strive for. I love your committment to yourself, I doubt that in myself at times.
You're doing a great job! I will keep your words in my mind. Loved reading your blog!

    I just love reading your blogs! You are right we are in this healthier, physical roller coaster together! Good for you for not settling for just anything out there. We all deserve the best! I have those people to in my life that try to get me off track & eat things that I shouldn't or drink things that I shouldn't but I am determined to stay strong to my goals I have set for ME! Way to go girl. Wood hoooo! Happy Training! emoticon emoticon
