Hello Journal & Friends,
So what is this... the end of Week 3 of the Just 1 Thing Consistency Challenge?!
My one thing is: to focus on exercising on my mini-trampoline.
It was tough this week, and last Tuesday and Wednesday I started to falter. But after seeing that Video last Thursday (HERE) I've kept up with my goals chart from Thursday onward. And believe me, sometimes that was the ONLY thing that kept me going! Remembering to give it all my heart.
I have a little timer strapped to the bar that I hold onto when I do my bouncing. And one thing has been consistent: I ALWAYS end up the last 30 seconds or so looking over at it to see if I am done yet?! And it helps to count down with it, thinking to myself "only 10 more... only 5 more... 4... 3... 2... 1.. done!!
But just think: when I first started this, I was only doing 45 seconds at a time!! So that's progress.
Start level: 3 times per day, at 45 seconds each time.
Current level: 9 times per day, at 1 minute 50 seconds each time.

Today's Peek at the Past
From Day 14, August 23, 2009:
Food was my drug of choice, whether sad, mad, happy or glad. I wore God's ear out begging Him to change me, to help me, to do SOMETHING.
Yet, bottomline I wasn't willing to "lose the food". Oh, I wanted to "lose the weight" but NOT the food. Not really...not for good. It would only last until the next big time stress hit, and then I would NEED my drug again, and lots of it...just this time...and the cycle would start all over again...
(I talked about "the scale" in that post, and also listed several of my favorite motivational/inspirational sources. So if you are looking to be uplifted, you can go to the post for those links, HERE)
From Dr Phil's book: "Have the willingness and courage to throw off your past, go after your weight control goals, and pursue a life that is defined as healthy and fit."
My verse for today: "How priceless is your unfailing love!"
My quote for today: "Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up." --Allen Klein
Enjoy the Journey,
