She Looked So Normal

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Ahh, but that's for another blog. This one's on my new daily writing exercise for the Fall 5% Challenge.

I remember having to do "exercises" like these during detention in grade school. It focused me then and using it again to help focus me here and now. I thought for sure I'd get some fried chicken the day after my original post but still have yet to lick any of my fingers of sweet, sweet chicken juice.

Here are the first 3 days. Not much yet but something weird starts to happen around line 7 or 8. It's like it resonates more than just writing words on paper.



In case you can't read it my mantra this challenge is: I will exercise and eat well to reach my fall goal of 174 pounds.

Thanks and please send all donations to the Post 5% Fall Challenge Chicken Fund to...

    Let me know how this works for ya! They say the power of positive thinking overcomes all. I guess we'll see about that. Have a good one! You can do it!

    Having a mantra really helps, but I'm not sure I could write it. Good for you! When I was training for a marathon a few years ago, I was reading a training book that suggested you use the mantra "I am a Marathoner" when the training got tough or you were discouraged and wanted to quit. It really helped.

    I repeat my mantra as I'm taking my walks...helps to pass the time and I'm hoping it will inspire me to keep moving. Hadn't thought about writing mine down, but maybe I'll give that a shot. At least I'd get some much-needed penmanship practice! emoticon emoticon Jeannie

    Kirk, if I can walk by all the Halloween candy when I'm out shopping for healthy food (it's killing me) then you can walk away from fried chicken - RIGHT???? emoticon
Your mantra is perfect and writing and saying it over and over will make it part of your psyche.
LET'S DO THIS!!!!!
