This is defined as a dogged perseverance. I have lacked this for quite some time now and the revelation hit me pretty hard this past week. I have been humming along wondering why I haven't seen much progress and why I always feel so frustrated. I have developed an apathy towards my fitness and nutrition that is being fueled by a lingering fear of commitment and failure. I discovered a love for bouldering about 6 months ago. Climbing is a really mentally tough sport and it has made me face things I haven't wanted to face. I don't commit to a route, I don't try to push myself, I haven't wanted to fail, and I just want my excuses to be valid. They aren't valid. They are just ways to keep myself from reaching goals I have set for myself. Now that I am aware of what has been really keeping me from progress I can work on it. My first step is to go further than I have before- go for a new hold I have been afraid to go for, jog for another minute when I feel like stopping, accept happy thoughts when I want to shove them away. I need a new perspective on commitment and I feel it taking shape!

    It can be SOOO tough to push beyond the barriers we set for ourselves, but I know from the past few weeks where I've done this that the feeling on the other side of all that pain is indescribable! Welcome back on board the healthy train. Congratulations on the new perspective!

    Congratulations on being proactive and changing your attitude and by extension your life. We're all afraid of failure. That is just part of being human. Now that you have come to terms with your fears, you can begin to make new progress. I wish you great success with your goals. On to a new adventure! Take care and God bless, Deb
