Day #23 of 32 - Reminding myself that ...
Tuesday, October 22, 2013
This journey is not over ...unless I give up, lie down and quit. That definitely is not going to happen! I see the scale but I look at it... and tell it what will happen! I see the scale and remind myself that I'm putting in the work, eating good and drinking my water. Whether it chooses to reflect that my hard word, control and dedication is paying off or not - I shall not quit!
Sure we Christian folk like to quote that scripture that says I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. But do we really believe it? It takes us doing the "thing" to see the true strength we have within us. If I give up it's not His fault but mine and I refuse to let Him down. I've prayed to hard and too often to overcome this obstacle and I will continue to pursue it with everything I can muster. Therefore I have to remind myself of where I'm going, why I'm going and how it will feel when I get there. Daily! Daily! Daily! Reminders!!! Can't lose the focus!!!
Now I've hyped my day! Yesterday I: Walked on treadmill at 3.0 and up to 3.2 for the last 15 minutes for a total of 45 minutes. Worked on strength training for my upper body as well.
This morning I got up at 5:25 a.m. and did a 15 minute walk/jog!!! Yes, Yes Yes!!! I did it. I walk/jog on Sunday and this morning and I have it scheduled to do it again on Thursday morning. I'm trying to make this thing happen! I'm using the C25K in the mornings but I only planned to do 15-20 minutes which I accomplished. Slowly working my way up to the full 30 minutes. May try it again this evening when I go to the gym (we shall see).
Ate well yesterday, stayed in calorie range and drank all my water. Today I got my lunch, brought in my breakfast and I'm going for a good day! Can't start off with a great morning and ruin the day now can I?!
Okay let's get the day started then. Be blessed!
