Tomorrow I have a date with the scale… Every other Tuesday we meet and at this time I reflect on the previous two weeks of effort and evaluate my overall “performance” if you will. I know deep down inside things could have been better but that will always be true. There will always be the thought in my head that exists “I could have ran one more lap”, “I could have made a better food choice”. These thoughts can haunt you if you let them, and I would not be honest if I didn’t say that they don’t on haunt me on occasion.
The truth is I just want to improve; I want my will power to match my improving physical strength. I would like to think that it is… The thought of becoming comfortable terrifies me and as each day passes truth be told I am becoming more and more comfortable. I have not weighed sub 250 for years maybe even my freshman year of high school so part of me feels like I have made it. Those inner thoughts are those of someone who is comfortable. It’s time to push harder than ever, those voices that exist that are saying “you have made it” are the same ones that justified eating fast food three times a day. While I never want to mock my accomplishments to date I also never want to take a step backwards. I have made it…. to today and if I want to live a quality life to see tomorrow I better continue to push the limits.
Happy Monday – Time to kick it up a notch!
