Day 13 - 7 Month Focus happens! Geez no matter what great planning I do, things just happen. Yesterday, I was so sore from my workout on Monday, I hardly moved. I got in only 4629 steps. Not even half of what I need to accomplish in a day. I did get my water in, Blogged, journaled my food, exercised and the calories came in at 1678. So a lot of good things happened. I had success!

My frustration is and maybe I'm waaaay too hard on myself, but I wanted another day like I had on Monday. It's no longer good enough to just barely do what I need to do. I want to hit my goals every day!!

Sadly, this morning, I woke up and found that I'm just as sore and tired as I was yesterday and I did not get up until 6:30am. So no exercise today and no chance of getting a workout in. Frustrates me.

I have to remember.......I don't have to be perfect.....I don't have to be perfect.....I don't have to be perfect!!!

Just focused....Consistent.....Diligent.....and stick with it!!!

I will make my goals!!!

How about you? Doing OK?

Keep focused!


  1. I love your self-talk. You don't have to be perfect. You just have to keep trying and not give up! It's hard for me to find that balance sometimes of not being too hard on myself, yet not just letting myself go and get away with it again and again. So yes, be gentle and kind to yourself, and yes, get your butt in gear next time. :) You will make your goals, I'm sure of it.

    God Bless!

  2. One less than perfect day does not a bad day make!!!

    Be kind to're doing great. Part of taking care of yourself means getting rest when you need it, and it sounds like that's exactly what you've needed.

    I'm doing good...just walked 4 miles. I'm feeling tired.

    Love and hugs!!!

  3. Hi. Sometimes we just have to slow down if we want to reach our ultimate goal.

    I either have to increase my daily walking in small increments or restrict my deliberate walks to every second day. And that's when I'm well focussed and reasonably fit.

    Hope you enjoy some exercise soon.
