In my last post I talked about how procrastinating can serve a purpose. It can actually give us comfort. However. we never grow if all we ever do is stay in our comfort zone. So how do we grow? We stretch ourselves.
Is there a project that you need to complete or even get started? Well then here is where the rubber meets the road my friend. You will never see the end of a project if you don’t start on your journey. We have all heard the saying that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.This is so true! So what’s your journey? is it to run a marathon, to write a book, to blog more, to connect more with people to get a new job or lose weight? There is literally a thousand different things you can do but you must make a plan and begin today! Not tomorrow but today!!
Here is my personal challenge, I am doing a 90 day health challenge. It is my goal to lose 25lbs in 90 days. I am well on my way I have already lost 4.5 I began my challenge on Feb 2 2012. You may ask why are you challenging yourself to lose weight? For me its much more than just losing weight. I want to get healthy and become the person I know I am meant to be. Losing weight is just one component of my getting healthy challenge. I want to A. Learn to love me more which means limiting or cutting out fast food and PEPSI. OHHH I LOVE PEPSI but I LOVE ME MORE B, Get Moving Get moving Get Moving I want to have way more energy to play with my kids. and C. This might be the most important reason for me to do this I want to stop worrying about my health and my age.
Time for a little self disclosure here. I just turned 42 on February 1,2012. I have an aunt that passed away just recently at 55 from a heart attack. I loved her dearly. But it woke me up to my own mortality. I want to be free. This challenge is about FREEING MYSELF from all of the negativity that I have let swirl around me
I find it very freeing also if you have correct information and know what you are up against, So with my personal challenge I did some research. I know what my personal habits are and I also know what my risk factors are. I put me in control of my challenge so I can get the best results out of my challenge. For me I need to eat smarter and get more water and definitely exercise more
I find that it is time to get excited about starting something new. I love watching “Throw down” with Bobby Flay on the Food Network. He gets a secret challenge to recreate a dish that is being made by someone who is a master at that dish I get all excited watching him walk up to the person that is creating their dish and says “ARE YOU READY FOR A THROW DOWN!” He’s so cute when he does this. But really I am PUMPED about doing this challenge and changing my life and prayerfully other lives in the process. I am also finding that if you can get behind someone that believes in you you are more likely to succeed. So I am throwing down my own challenge. It was my goal when I started this blog to help others succeed in whatever they may be working on. DO A CHALLENGE WITH ME. DO SOMETHING TO BETTER YOURSELF FOR 90 days and let me help you be a better person in 90 days. I myself am taking a 90 day challenge for my health and if you would love to join me in that I can give you specifics at Christy@workwithchristy.com. Its very easy and simple to do. If you would like support in another 90 day challenge of your own let me know by leaving me a reply and letting me know how I can support you. I would love to do so. Bottom line like Nike says “ JUST DO IT” START TODAY CHANGE YOUR WORLD NOW!!!
