Its Sunday and I am finally coming down from my birthday weekend high. My friends have been amazing to me. Honestly I am so lucky to know them and they all ROCK!
It was a great Friday and so worth feeling a little dizzy on Saturday…which is why you didn’t hear from me. I was basically sleeping the whole day and watched Ghost Adventures until the wee hours in the morning. It was a really great Saturday.
However, before I get into sharing my goals for next week I would like to congratulate the winner of the FXP Fitness Hula Hoop Giveaway! So congratulations Marlo Smi. I really can’t wait to see what color and what you do with your own Hula Hoop! Don’t forget to tag me when you get it!!!
Now though I am ready to really start concentrating on me. Making myself a priority and forcing me to remember that I am a priority. Halloween is almost here, Thanksgiving is next, Christmas is after and then New Years. That means that all the important and OMG holidays are almost here and I just want to make sure that I don’t forget myself, my exercises and eating right during this super busy (fun) time.
So this means that I am dedicating myself to
- Making myself a PRIORITY
- Making my workouts a PRIORITY
- Making eating right a PRIORITY
How am I going to do this? I mean honestly, and I want to be honest here, I have made comments and posts about ‘taking control of my life’ or this time it is going to change. But only small changes or no changes were to be had. So how can I honestly say that this time is going to be different? How can I tell you, and myself, that this time it is going to be different? That this time I have the ‘need’the ‘want’ and the ‘desire’ to have a lasting change?
Honestly I can’t answer that completely. I wish I could answer that but I can’t. I can only see myself as I am right now. I am tired of putting my health second, or as an after thought. I am tired of being good at ‘healthy’ eating for 3 days and the other 4 days either forgetting or it not being as good. Or working out for a good 4 days and then not doing it the following week.
So I am going to take it a day at a time. I am going to take it a meal at a time. I am going to take it a workout at a time. It might not be perfect. I might still fail. But I will no longer feel like I am not moving forward in my life. I will no longer feel that I am disappointing myself and all of you. Yes I am still on my journey, but it isn’t a journey if it only goes backwards.
Taking control of my life is going to be an interesting challenge. And to be, again, honest it is a scary thing. I have failed before. I have succeed before. I have made changes to my life that is still in effect today and others that I haven’t, but should have, kept up. However, it is time to let go. It is time to go forward.
Because if I don’t move on now…then when? If I don’t forgive myself for failing myself, for not succeeding then how can I ever move on?
I am ready to fly. I am ready to move on. I am ready to fully succeed.
Okay so that is a lot of heart wrenching writing that I just finished. It wasn’t easy but I had to have it written down for me and to be honest to all of you. But now that it is down in cyber space I want to share my goals for this next week and for the rest of this year.
- 10 Min workout #FFFChallenge every day.
- Juice in the morning
- No eating out
- Start Couch to 5k
Rest of the Month Goal
- 10 Min workout w/ #FFFChallenge every day
- Eating out is only 1 time a weekend
- Finish getting ready for the Electric Run 5k (Nov 8th)
Rest of the Year Goal
- Finish Slim in 6
- Eating out is only 1 time a weekend
- Finish 8 of my virtual medals (especially my 2 Christmas ones)
- Finish this year off strong for the next year!
This is what I have been thinking about all day long. And I am going to make this happen, for myself.
Okay NeverEver’s, I am done with this post for today…which is a good thing. I am feeling pretty drained on writing this. But I did want to know…have you made any plans for the rest of the year?
