Day 39 - 7 Month Focus

Yesterday started off rough!! Got up late, was up a pound!?!?!, and forgot my Bodybugg 15 minutes into my time on the treadmill. Really bummed me out!! In the past, things like this would have bumped me off of my plan for the day. I would have been so frustrated and mad that I would have just started over the next day.

Did I do that yesterday?


Even though I was in a bad mood, even though I did not want to, my goal was to end the day with success!!

So I got myself ready, went to work and worked hard all day long. During my breaks, I usually take a walk around the building and up and down the stairs to help get my steps in. Yesterday, I was speed walking down the hall and this woman races out of her office and follows me to the bathroom.  I'm like, "Wow, she really has to go!" Anyway, we get done and we are both at the sink washing our hands. I ask her how's she doing and she just lets the questions fly!!

Do you walk a lot....Do you walk the whole building....Does that thing (my Bodybugg - unfortunately it shows!) track your steps....How much weight have you lost....what's your plan?

She's firing her questions at me like crazy and I'm trying to keep up and give her my whole story in 1 minute or less. Anyway, I give her my spiel and she says, that she too wants to do something about her weight. Then she said she's checking out the Bodybugg....she wants to get one. So as we part, she say, "I'm watching're doing great!!"

I don't even know this woman!!! She works way on the other side of the building. I guess she's seen me fly by her door a time or two.

Kind of exciting to know that what I do impacts others, even people I don't know.

You never know who's watching you! That's why it's so important for me to be a woman of my word. To do what I say I'm going to do, no matter what! You are known by your last act! (Stole that from a training my boss gave us ~ wise man!!)

Then to finish the night, I decided to jog in place during the Biggest Loser show. I jogged during the show and rested during the commercials. Really helped me get my steps in!

Keep up the great work my friends. Push yourself to your limit. Do what you need to do ~ Every day!! And remember people are watching!!

How about you...are you making a difference where ever you go?

  1. I'm so proud of you Joy. You're not just inspiring those of us who read your blog, but others who "see" what you're doing every day.
    Keep it up my friend.

    Love and blessings

  2. You're doing great! I'm proud of you.

  3. Way to go! Way to not letting forgetting the body bugg get you off track!

  4. I try to forget about the people watching part! you sound like your doing great, can't wait to keep reading

  5. Since I got my new Bodymedia device, I have become very conscientious about wearing it most of the time. So I understand what you're talking about. It has really helped me already. It sounds like you're doing great. I'm envious of all the steps you have recorded. Great work!

  6. hi joy, i also try to exercise (or at least try some stretching) during the biggest loser. it's very motivating! doesn't feel right to sit down while you're watching a show like that. xx
