I am feeling the need to note, log and share my goals. Lucky you! You get to hear them. I have selected you as I see you as the direct path of assistance for me to achieve these goals. So, here goes:
I want to be below 200 pounds so badly. I want it now. Sooner than soon. It seems to not be happening as fast as I want and I will make the necessary steps to get there. What is more important is that not only do I want to be below 200, I don't want to just stay there. I want to be below 200 and moving lower in the direction of my goal to 135. I am not sure that 135 is the end all be all, it is simply the number that has been in my head for so long. That, and I believe that it is an achievable goal for me. Once there, I anticipate that I may want to select another goal. That is acceptable.
I want to be able to do real push-ups. The full leg deep push type. I am getting better but long for a perfect form.
I want to be able to do real sit ups. At least 10, without stopping. The old school type.
I want to be able to do a pull-up. Just one for starters. Then many more. The kind with the palms facing me. Then, the other kind too.
I want to be able to run. This one is worrisome to me as I think that it is bad on my knees but for some unknown reason, I feel the need to run. I want to do a 5K and live to tell about it.
I want to improve my stamina. I am in better shape then I have ever been, yet the three flight climb winds me daily at work. Why is this?
I want to be proud of my body. I want to feel long, strong and lean. I am feeling stronger every day. Let's get that lean business moving!
I want to have the confidence in my body that I don't care what others think about me. I want to carry myself with my chest lifted, abs tight and head held high.
I want to look like a million bucks. I want people to look at me and say......."You should have seen her, she has lost so much weight! She works her ass off and it has really paid off for her. I want that!"
Now, I will change all of the "I wants" to I will! I have this. I just have to be patient.
Most important lesson that I learned recently is this.....The mind gives up before the body does. When I get to that point in a workout where I think I can't go on, I remember those 8 words and somehow, as if by magic, I can continue!
I will achieve this!
