The first three days...
So, my observations of the last three days. They have felt damn near effortless. I don't understand why sometimes it is SO easyt and other times it's nearly impossible to keep the unhealthy food out of my mouth! I am doing a new fitness challenge as well. 500 miles in one year, and 10k fitness mins in one year.
Let's do this...
Don't we all start out a new project, diet, new year, with this vigor? This...I can do it, I can take on the world mentality? Over the course of the first few months though, those fireworks start to fizzle, and eventually go out. We all stumble and fall, sometimes we blow a tire, sometimes, against all better judgement, we get so fed up with ourselves that we get out and slash the other three. That's what happened to me at the end of last year.
I haven't done myself in though. It's time to get up, and start walking to my destination, car and slashed tires be damned.
I know it's not always going to be this way, it won't feel effortless forever. These feelings will come and go, and I'll lose and gain and hopefully lose again until I get to maintenance and deal with the drudgery of that. heh...
As we all know, it's not about the falling down, it's about the willingness to get back up, even though you may have been knocked down more times than you can count. You don't know any better, you get up, and prepare yourself to take another beating, and each time, hopefully....you stay up a little longer, and fight a little harder, until you beat this thing.
Let's do this.
Bring it on 2012!
*P.S Remind me to read this when I've been knocked down!*
