My birthday is July 2nd, and what better gift could I give to myself that to reach this goal that’s nearing two years in the making? So from now until then, I’ll be giving Sunday updates/weekend wrap-ups on my progress called Birthday Gift Goal Updates.
Once again I forgot to weigh myself this morning. It seems that I’m either so groggy or so excited about the day’s plans on Sunday mornings that I can’t seem to remember to get on the scale. So I just put a little reminder in my iCal, which should take care of my poor memory.
It’s just as well that I didn’t weigh in today – it’s TOM, and although the clothes are fitting the same as they did a couple of days ago, I’m sure there’s a slight water weight gain.
This week I was supposed to concentrate on working out, and while I did better than I did the week before, which is progress, I didn’t do enough. Which leads me to a bit of an epiphany I had last week.
Thursday I was at my desk at school, eating my lunch and reading blogs (as I do most days), and I came across this post, written by Tonya. And as I read it, I realized that she could have been writing directly to me. It’s strange that a post with such biblical tones in it spoke to me this much, but it did, especially the beginning portion, where she writes:
I don’t want to just scratch the surface anymore. I’m tired of not finishing. Half-way leaves you hung in the balance; it doesn’t take you down or move you forward. You’re just…STUCK.”
That’s what I’ve been doing for
weeks months years now. Concentrating on only part of the journey. Doing well with food during the day and then overeating at night. Or doing great with the food, but being lazy about workouts. And really, I’m just so tired of being Miss Halfway.
I’m going to do my best today to dig deeper and give 100% of myself to my workout and to my food plan. And tomorrow, I’ll do the same thing. And while I take each day as it comes, I will continue to recommit to myself, because I do believe I’m made to shine.
