Facing Reality

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Well If I can get my techie kids to help me I will post a couple of pictures of myself.

On Saturday I walked with a friend. We decided to take "before" pictures and then in 40 days we will compare those pictures to see how they compare with "after." I have not looked at a side view of myself for a long time. I guess it is over due. Yikes!

I have a long way to go. I am not sure if I have the faith, courage and bravery to make this journey. But, I do have reasons I should. I want to be thinner again. I want to know what it is like to look at myself and feel good about how I look. It has been such a long time...

I found this quote today:
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." --- Aristotle

I will believe myself to be excellent if I can do these things:
1. 40 minutes in spiritual study and meditation.
2. Walking daily with my friends. (Except Sunday )
3. Lift weights 3 times per week.
4. Eat at least 3 meals and one snack daily.-Planned ahead.
5. Eat according to South Beach diet.
6. Walk 10,000 steps daily except Sunday.
7. Follow my decluttering and cleaning plan.

My kids interrupted I want to add:
8. Write down everything I eat.
9. Eat only at the table. -Pay attention!
10. Realize it matters!

My goal for the next 40 days is to go forward with the faith that I can create excellence. I can do the things that I admire. I will be an excellent lady. I can do this. It may not be easy but, I have a plan and I think it is doable.

    With God you have no reason to lack faith, courage or bravery. With Him all things are possible and you can do this! emoticon

    This is an excellent, solid, well-thought out plan.

    That you feel you may not be able to do it is silly. You are a woman of faith, right? Right! So, prove it!
