Hi there Journal & Friends,
Today is the end of the second week of the Just 1 Thing Consistency Challenge!
My one thing is: to focus on exercising on my mini-trampoline.
Start level: 3 times per day, at 45 seconds each time.
Current level: 8 times per day, at 1 minute 30 seconds each time.
My legs are letting me know they are being challenged!! But I am doing it, all except one day when I just plain started too late. Oh I had my excuses all lined up: I was tired, didn't feel well, etc. But bottomline, I chose to stop after 2 times that day. Lesson: get my sleep, and start earlier in the day!
Since this challenge was my bright idea, it's a little embarrassing to NOT be consistent. But I am back on track since that day... no way was I going to come here and make more excuses! :-O
Just a quick reminder for anyone who missed it: tonight at midnight, Pacific time, is the deadline to leave a comment saying Yes, you would like to be entered in my first Giveaway. Here is the info.
Today's Peek at the Past
I decided to re-read posts from 1 year ago as I go along... how interesting to me! To see what I was thinking, and how much has, or has NOT changed.
From Day 3--This is as true today as it was then (for some reason all the first few posts have the same date! So if you read them, just ignore it):
I don't know where it came from, but I made a CHOICE when I first started this journey at 460 lbs, to NEVER QUIT...no matter what...
Been tempted to quit many times...deaths, illnesses, heartaches, frustrations, disappointments, all the stuff of life......but I never quit.....almost, sure.....but not quite.
I think it's because I clung to HOPE...
Hope that I would someday get my health back...
Hope that THIS would be the time it would work...
Hope it was not too late for me...
Hope that God had not given up on me, so I would not give up either...
And that hope has finally grown into BELIEF...I WILL make it this time.
The moral of the story is: NEVER QUIT
Be stubborn about it...be determined...be feisty...let NO ONE take it from you...do not accept NO for an answer. Cry, scream, holler, beg or shout if you have to.....but never quit!
