What am I getting at here? Our OWN MENTAL LIMITATIONS! For so many years I didn't love myself enough to challenge myself. I told myself I couldn't and so I accomplished little. NOW days... I LIVE off of challenges. However, I've fallen into a slump! What is my next challenge? What am I working for next? Am I training for something? Currently, no. I don't have a big race coming up. I don't have a goal to meet. I don't have something that I'm working for with all of my effort. My training has been consistent, but I haven't been pushing myself. SO... this last week I did some evaluating.
I asked myself this question: What am I weakest at?
Answer: my stubborn belly weight & my spiritual walk with Christ.
I decided the two needed to be revamped. I decided that I needed to suck it up and get serious. I need to log every ounce of food I eat. I need to measure EVERYTHING I eat. And I need to push myself harder in my workouts. But none of this can be accomplished if my MIND isn't right. I need to train my mind and soul as hard as I train my body. Which is why I'm committing myself to 90 days (lead up to Christmas season) to get myself right in mind, body, and soul.
I've started a food journal in the same journal as my prayer/devotional journal. I feel the two strongly go hand in hand. My goal for the next 90 days is to train not just my body. This gives me a goal, which is EXACTLY what I need. I'm not focusing on weight, but my actions. I know that if my actions are consistent, my results will be consistent.
My success this week: re-evaluating my mind, body, and soul
Your challenge this week: evaluate your weakness and set a plan to train so that your weakness become your strengths.
What actions are you willing to take to achieve greatness? I know you have it in you, but do YOU know the greatness that lies within you?
