I was thinking about this word last night... Dedication, and what it truly means. This word has more meaning to me since I started changing things up with my diet. Dedication is hard but if you have the right mind set it is easier to stay dedicated.

I am dedicated to myself... I am dedicated to my family... I am dedicated to this life style.

Today my dedication will be to the gym. My friend is unable to workout today which means I get to torture myself by myself. I am going to stay dedicated and make it there even though she won't be able to join me.

I am also staying dedicated to my new diet plan. Man... has there been some temptations. But I am staying the course and that takes some MAJOR dedication!

And I just read about TOTAL dedication in one of my Spark friend's blog. He just completed a tri 70.3 miles of pure dedication. It was very inspiring and actually made me tear up. Great job "Mr never give up"! Thank you for clearing showing some awesome dedication!

Here is his blog if you would like to check it out.....

How about you... What do you think about when you see this word?

    You are so right about dedication and being in the right mind set. It is so hard to be dedicated and not give up unless your heart is really ready. Sounds like you are!

    Thanks for sharing the blog. 70.3 miles - wowzers!

    Great blog! Makes me stop to think of how dedicated am I really. Family, work and friends - definitely dedicated. But what about exercise? What about eating only the best food? These things can take a back seat to other things. In that case, am I truly dedicated?

    Funny how one word can really trigger some soul searching. :)

    You're awesome! Your dedication and follow through help push me each day. Thanks so much.

    Dedication is surrender of choice, but in a good way, for a greater purpose. I am dedicated to my family, so even though my choice would be to work days, night shift was the available choice. I am willing to make the change for their benefit. Good blog, thanks!
