Finishing strong is something that I am going to do this year. Yesterday at church, my Pastor made this statement in his sermon. He said we often start really strong but we don't finish strong. Right now I can relate with my weight loss. When I started, I was extremely focused and motivated. Somewhere along the line, those feelings sort of diminished, however, I am determined again and I WILL finish strong.
When I think about finishing something the first that comes to mind is school. I've successfully completed elementary, middle, high, undergraduate school. I am currently in the midst of completing a masters degree. When it pertains to school, I always start what I finish and I finish strong. I feel like this doesn't translate to other parts of my life. I'll start something and never finish it. For example, I've started several novels and have yet to finish one. I know I have a gift I just don't make time for it which is terrible. The 5k training I started, I haven't done in weeks. Lastly, this weight loss. I am not done. I am far from done but I've let things stop me from being as strong in this latter part than I was when I started last year.
Today I am recommitting. Not only to my weight loss goals but my writing goals, my 5k goals, and goals to work on myself spiritually. I am going to finish strong. I can do it and I will do it.
So yeah on to my S&S's for the day:
Shortcomings of the day: Not tracking my food
Successes: Working out 45 mins Turbo Jam!
I WILL TRACK MY FOOD TOMORROW. I WILL NOT CHEAT ON MY DIET. I WILL NOT EAT LATE AT NIGHT. I WILL WORK OUT!
I WILL FINISH STRONG!
