It seems like this word is popping up a lot for me.. just the other day I saw this quote
"Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goals".
This really got me thinking, Have I taken my eyes off my goals? I know I have one huge goal which I have had since I started this journey and that was to lose weight, that was my only goal.. lose weight.. yes of course I wanted what went with it.. to feel good to be healthy to be able to walk up a flight of stairs with out huffing and puffing, to be able to go to a store and walk around with out pain.. to be able to get in and out of my car with out trouble.. well all that has happened..
Then I started to make more goals for my self.. fitness goals such as being able to ride my bike again, swim, walk 3 or more miles.. I use to run. but I am no longer a good runner.. I jog and I love it.. and each year my goal is to be able to jog a little longer each time which that has happen as well, I can walk for 5 miles I can ride my bike for 60 or more miles.. I am faster. too , I can swim 10+ laps..
I know I should not stop at goal setting just because I achieved these things and more I feel I need to keep up doing what I am doing to maintain these things I can do so I can keep doing them.
but what I am trying to say is the rest of my weight has not come off. I have done all these things to get the weight off and yes 100 came off my goal is to get the other 60 off. and it seems like there is an obstacle ... and that is ME...
The Obstacle I put up is that I am not setting new and higher goals.. I am not challenging my self everyday.. I am going along happy and content with what I have done and am doing .. don't get me wrong.. I am very proud of my self of what I have done.. but I know I can do more.. it is in me.. I did not lose sight of my goal.. I just let an obstacle block the view.. Well it is time to move it and put it back into view and set some higher and stronger goals to get to the main goal that I have set..
I am ready for this.. and the steps I need to take is:
LOVE.. Yes love.. I need to love my self more and have faith and courage in my self.. to keep going.. because I am my hugest obstacle.. and I am not going to let that be anymore
The old me was a huge obstacle for me.. and I am not going to let the new one be either.
