End of the 21 Day Blog Challenge--An Intention

Thursday, November 21, 2013

21. [Abbreviated from original] You just spent three weeks reflecting on yourself and your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Write yourself a heartfelt, loving intention to help you reach your goal. Whatever you write or "borrow" should resonate deeply and be helpful to you as a source of strength and motivation.

Here it is--the end of the challenge road. I have to say, I surprised myself a little that I completed it pretty much day by day, and on time. As an extremely intermittent blogger here, this was new for me. A week of it, one-third, even included blogging while I was on vacation. I had never been much of a one for doing challenges on this site before, but like the effort to maintain streaks, I can see the value of it. By imposing an exterior structure on your effort and meeting it, I can practice behavior that I might want to become a habit. Will I become a daily blogger? Probably not. But the introspection has been useful in gathering my determination to press on with weight loss and fitness, aided by taking up other challenges, both from Spark and ones I make up for myself. So here's my intention:

I will persevere in my effort to make my body healthier and fitter. I will challenge myself in various ways in order to keep my determination fresh, to learn more about myself, and to form new beneficial habits. I will plan it, do it, evaluate it. I will never. give. up.
