Day 20 - 7 Month Focus

Has your "D" fallen off? Mine has....I have this word on my wall in my home gym. The letters are wooden and they are adhered to the wall with this blue sticky stuff. Each letter has 4 globs of this stuff on the back. I've had these letters on my wall for well over a year. And every few months my "D" falls off.

I guess it's a good thing....because if you are like me, when you see something every day, it just becomes part of the scenery. Most days, you don't really see the thing, unless you have a reason to look at it.

Well every time I lose my "D" it forces me to look at the word and the word is.....



Good thing it's just the letter that falls off and not my real dream. I definitely have a dream, in fact many of them. They are fully intact and waiting to become reality.

When the "D" fell again today, I was thinking there must be something about the word REAM that I  need to explore. For me this word can be used in a negative. "To ream out!" Negative!! I'm just not going there.

Instead of thinking negatively, I chose to think this is a positive thing. I think this happens to remind me of my dreams. Helps to keep them fresh and it motivates me to push a little harder to reach for my goals. I'm glad my "D" falls off!

I'm running this race!! Not gonna stop until I hit the finish line!!

 How about you? Are you with me?

Stats from yesterday. Calories out 2514...calories in 1897...deficit 617. Got in only 6441 steps, drank my water, blogged, exercised and journaled my food.   The scale is moving!    Oh, downward...thought I should add that part~~~YEAH!


  1. Dream to ream - that's quite a change in mindset!

    Glad the scale is going where you want it :)

  2. :) I'm glad your D falls too :)
    * I have to admit. When I read the first sentence of this blog, I thought it was going to be about dropping a bra cup size LOL :) I would love to lose a D in that department :)

  3. What a great analogy! I'm glad the scales are headed in the right direction for you.

  4. I'm with ya! :) Thanks for following my blog! I'm now following you! :) Let's support each other! :)

  5. So exciting the scale is going down! SO happy for you! Keep it up!


  6. To me it seems that it's a metaphore for the fact that our dreams are easy to fall way, but always there to pick back up.

    So glad you're doing well Joy. Keep up the great work.
