“ Sacrifice: Giving up something good for something better.
Success: The successful person is willing to do what the unsuccessful person is not willing to do.
Character: The ability to carry out a worthy decision after the emotion of making that decision has passed..”
– Hyrum W. Smith –
While I may have given up on maintaining this blog over the past … forever, I have not given up on my journey. I am still chugging along my path and even lost over 10 lbs. since last time I updated my weight loss chart. While I celebrate every pound that is no longer part of project Mike, I also kick myself for putting my health goal on the back burner to simmer when I need a full on rolling boil.
At the risk of a “that’s what she said” joke, here are are a few refocusing self affirmations:
– SACRIFICE 30 min, 3 times a week from my family so I can be with them for many years to come. Do it when it sucks!
– SUCCEED by going to the gym and busting out the cardio, keeping up on physician visits and by being a conscious eater. Do it when it sucks!
– Exhibit CHARACTER by never, never, NEVER letting setbacks, disappointments and frustrations determine my destination. Keep doing it when I suck!
I WILL DO IT WHEN IT SUCKS!
