A Good Decision

Monday, January 20, 2014

My latest motivation for weight loss is that I'm into bodybuilding. I find it fun and cool though potentially very cheesy and narcissistic if I don't keep it real with regard to why I want to do bodybuilding. I want to do bodybuilding to bring beauty and inspiration to other people through my body and strength. I'm trying to figure out what a humble bodybuilder looks like. Tricky. But many successful bodybuilders are models of humility and good sense. SORRY--that's a topic for another blog post.

ANYWAY--back to my good decision--last week I'd come across a weight loss & body transformation contest that could potentially land the winner in MAUI!! I really considered entering it with the thought that, "Heck, I'm doing all the work anyway--why not put myself in a position to win a trip to Hawaii in the process??"

The immediate reaction I got from myself was a mixture of excitement and dread. I realized that the extra pressure could possibly derail me from the slow, steady progress I've been making, and that that possibility made the contest just not worth it.

I'm so proud that I listened to that still, small voice inside--I'm at peace!
