I had to play too… so I also joined South Beach Steve’s Hot 100 challenge! You have probably noticed… I am always behind, late and trying to catch up. It’s the story of my life and sometimes it makes me crazy, but right now I am just accepting it.
None the less I am posting my FIVE goals:
1. Exercise at least 3 times per week.
2. Drink 8 glasses of water EVERY day.
3. Take a healthy home lunch 3 days a week and actually eat it.
4. Be able to run a complete 5K, no walking, by the end of the year!
5. Be able to wear one size smaller pants by the end of the year!
As usual… I am terrified setting these goals, but also excited! The reason goals scare me is I hate to feel like a failure and it I don’t accomplish 100% of my goals I tend to feel like a failure. HOWEVER, that is not a concern this time, because I will accomplish my goals and win the fabulous prize! WOO-HOO!
Today was such a crazy day… the babysitter forgot to pick my son up from preschool and the school sent him on the bus. Needless to say no one was at the bus stop for him. They tracked me down and I was able to get him, but the stress began to spiral… Before I knew it I had allowed myself to be in tears because the world was going to crash and it was all my fault.
How do you think I turned this around…?
I drank POM Wonderful, cleaned out my fridge, got lots of lovin’ from my two angels and went on a 4 mile walk with my fabulous friend Shannon.
I also accomplished a HUGE goal tonight that has been hanging over my head uncompleted for months!
Tomorrow and the rest of the year is going to be amazing because I am choosing to make it that way! My life is changing so rapidly it is easy for me to get lost in it and lose focus. There are times, today being one of them, when I really want to give up on everything, but it is those times you have to push harder because that is then when life gives you exactly what you deserve.
