Day 16 - 7 Month Focus

OK I'm going to rant at myself for a little bit - Please don't read this post!!! And if you do, don't comment and say anything nice to me! I don't deserve it!!

I'm mad at myself!!

How in the world can I reach my goals and/or help anybody with encouragement, by asking them to focus, when I can't even do it? Is that fair to anybody? Does that help anybody? I don't think so!!

Part of the reason why I don't like to publish my goals, is because I have not be able to reach them. So I figure, why bother? Right? Who wants to read about that? There are so many people out there who say they want to do something and a lot of them don't do it and I guess I'm one of them. I don't like that about myself.

I want to be a woman of my word, when I say I'm going to do something, I want to do it. So far with my 7 Month "FOCUS" challenge, I have only hit all of my goals 3 days out of 15. Does that sound like someone who is focused? Nope, doesn't to me either. Kind of sucks if you ask me!

Yesterday was the absolute worst day ever!! So embarrassed to even share, but here are the facts......

  • Did I exercise - Nope!   
  • Did I deserve this day to be a rest day - Nope ~ Already had one this week!!
  • Did I get in my 10,000 steps - Nope ~ Only got in 5839
  • Did I reach my calorie goals - Nope ~ I had 2373
  • Did I track my food - Yup ~ Big deal!
  • Did I drink my water - Yup ~ Anybody can do that!
  • Did I Blog - Yup ~ Of course I did...that is the fun & easy part of my challenge
So I messed it up! Royally.....Makes me soooo MAD!!!

So what am I going to do about it. RE...RE...RE...FOCUS!!

For crying out loud ~ WOMAN GET HIS DONE!!

So I'm off to a good start today. I did a little crying and procrastinating, but I got my exercise in (Treadmill and weights), had a great breakfast, and now I'm Blogging. Two goals done and it's only 9:30am. So today, I will hit my goals. No MATTER WHAT!!!!

Talk to you tomorrow!!



  1. Good place to start and reorganize, with an honest inventory of the situation.

  2. I feel the same way sometimes. A lot of people tell me I'm an inspiration, and that feels very heavy on my shoulders in the times when I can't inspire myself to do the right thing. I honestly believe, though, that even when we struggle, we're doing a great job, because if you're having a hard time, it means you haven't quit. ♥ Hang in there, this too shall pass. :)

  3. Dont hate me im responding!
    first of all HUG!
    You noticed what you did wrong and honestly you could have done so much worse! Take a deep breath see what you want to change and do your best to do them.It takes time to make new habits just hang on you'l get there!

  4. Oh Joy... it's one thing to tell yourself you need to get it in gear, we all have to do that. Just be GENTLE with yourself like you would one of your blogger friends. Being gentle with yourself doesn't mean slacking off and given less effort... but it does mean acknowledging that you will make mistakes and you won't beat yourself down for that. You will learn, pick yourself right back on up, and move forward with gusto every single time you make a mistake! You are worth that! Your goals are awesome and worth aspiring too, and worth conquering!! And I know you have that strength and persistence to tackle them one by one and you are!

    We so need to meet and have lunch sometime!
    Have a great weekend, my friend!
    God bless!

  5. Hey I need to write this post to myself and maybe I will get it in gear. I have not reach any of my goals lately. Have a great weekend.
