2010 Self Challenge
Thursday, February 18, 2010
...and its finally here!
I've been just waiting and waiting....I've realized in addition to my last blog, that I do a lot of planning, preparing, getting ready but not doing. I really thought a lot about that yesterday during my walk/jog.
Today I'm nervous. I've offically started the 2010 Self Challenge. In all reality I'm not sure what the nerves are about. I've been working hard, and following weight watchers and watching slowly but surely wieght come off. This is just gonna step it up and is a commitment, both things that are hard for me.
I'm going to keep this blog for my journaling of my thoughts during this challenge over the next three months, and keep the stats to my message boards and trackers. I'm not going to plan and plan and plan the next three months out this time. I'm not going to look at the big picture, I've put down on paper (or at least virtual paper!) my starting place, and my end all be all goal. From this point, and at least for the next month (when the challenge is switched up, and I'll re-assess), I will be taking it week by week and day by day. I'll do today what I can then move on to the next, still hitting my minimal goals each week.
This week....complete the full five hours of cardio they are asking for, even if it's not perfectly in thier prescribed manner.
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
As long as I can say that as my head hits the pillow I'll be just fine.
