If At First....

Friday, July 14, 2017

You don't succeed, try try again! And try I will! I will never stop trying to be a better me in all ways. I had joined the Summer 5% Challenge with much enthusiasm. Unfortunately I felt I couldn't do well at exercising each day for physical and emotional reasons, so I quit the team 🙁, because I didn't want to hinder anyone else. In reality, I really only hindered myself. Ever since then I've been beating myself up emotionally by stress eating on and off. Am I a failure? No!! I messed up, yes and let myself down, but I will never give up or give in or stop trying. God sees me as a winner and I am working on seeing myself the same way!! Thanks for listening. God Bless you!!

    There was a time when I just needed to sit out for a few challenges. Doesn't mean you can't hop back in when you are ready. You didn't let anyone down. This is your journey, not your obligation. It will take you down many different paths. Its up to you to decide which paths you enjoyed and want to return to, and which paths you never want to go down again.

    We all have been there and most likely will again. It is when you pick yourself up and move forward again that makes you a winner. We are all human and not perfect. Good for you for getting back and putting yourself in the right mind set. WTG

    I didn't join the 5% Summer Challenge. I knew I'd have trouble while visiting family. I'm doing a home fitness challenge under Challenges. If I miss a day I can double up another day.

    We can do this. We'll do what works for us.
