Take your time and it will happen

Monday, July 01, 2013

"The first step to getting anywhere is deciding you're no longer willing to stay where you are." óż

For two whole days now I've taken my time on this journey. I have stopped and thought through what I was doing. What I was eating, how I was eating it. I've gotten out of the bed and headed out emoticon with my buddies and we have walked six and a half miles total this weekend. No small feat. I did it. Am I a bit smug? You bet your sweet bottom I am. For someone who couldn't do one day I've done two and today i'm a bit stronger than I was when I began. Will I make a mistake or two? Sure but I'm also making great changes that will lead me to success. It just takes time. I was so wanting it yesterday I was forgetting about today and the journey in itself. I'm not healed by no means but i'm closer today than I was yesterday to my goals.

    Doesn't it feel satisfying when we reach a milestone, even two days in a row? Keep up the good effort. emoticon -- Lou

    emoticon emoticon I've had to employ the "just do it" attitude to getting up and moving and it has made a world of difference. You begin to notice that it's easier to do every day and you'll feel even closer to your goal as you go. You have a great attitude emoticon
