Day 25 - 7 Month Focus

Rough coming out of a holiday weekend! When I first woke up, I wanted to go right back to sleep. It's raining....AGAIN! And not just a little, it's pouring. AUGH!!! Then....I have not exercised in 3 days, my body feels sluggish and still sore from my fall. Got on the scale and I'm up 2 pounds. Not surprising with having ham.

So sad, I don't exercise for 3 days and have a little different foods and I gain 2 pounds!!! Which will take me all week to lose. AUGH!

Not off to a great start. It's usual though, as I have something fun to do tonight, something for me. That is how things start out when I do something for myself.

Instead of going back to bed and calling in sick for the day, I got myself up and faced the was ugly...but it is what it is! Then I got myself onto my treadmill  for 30 minutes and burned 200 calories. Not a stellar workout, but I did it ~ begrudgingly, but I did it!!! Had a great breakfast, prayed, read my Bible and now I'm writing to you!

Not feeling too bad right now! Whew!!! Glad I made the right choice in choosing to do the right thing, even though I did not want to!!!

I am ready to try something new today....something that pushes me past my comfort zone. I am really excited! The writers workshop will be amazing!! Can't wait to share tomorrow.

Stats for the weekend. I did pretty well considering it was a holiday. I got everything in except for my steps and exercise. Calories were even OK. Amazing!

Do something today that pushes you past your comfort zone!! Would love to hear about it!!

Keep focused my friends!!!


  1. Good job getting up and going after the holiday weekend! :) You are focused :)

  2. Awesome focus.It sucks seeing a gain but getting it fixed again is the best way to go :)

  3. Good for you. You've accomplished more this morning than most people do in a week!

    I can't wait to read about the workshop.

  4. Good for you for pushing yourself - it's a good thing that workouts don't depend on good attitudes, eh?! I tried to cut the grass this morning but the mower wouldn't start - then it started to rain. Ugh. Then I worked on our bedroom - cleaning, moving furniture & books - BIG job. Almost done though.

  5. Sometimes you just have to power through. Way to go!

  6. one of the most powerful things you can do is to do it when you don't want to...It gives you a great feeling of power. Great job joy!

  7. I love that feeling of accomplishment I get when I push through even when I don't want to.

    My pushing past my comfort zone moment today is academic (math).
