Mission statements are HARD to write. The language has to be dynamic, and everything has to be concise. One thing I am stuck on is it's asking me to make a statement about the companies growth and potential - hm, since I don't have a business yet, how can I make this statement? I'm sure it some kind of business savvy, mathematics based equation, but hell if I know it! Any business people reading this wanna help a girl out? ;-)
As I was walking at lunchtime today, I listened to a lot of pieces of conversations. It gave me pause that I heard quite a few people talking about "running this morning", or some kind of gym activity. These people looked fit. Well, you might be thinking "duh", but it occurs to me that people who are fit are, most of the time, really working on it. I remember long ago thinking
I did not weigh myself this morning, and I don't plan on it till Friday morning. I was thinking about my goal, and I acknowledge to myself that it's a little lofty. I mean, we are talking about approx 4 lbs in the next 10 days - doing everything the right way (not with some crazy juice/fast/cleanse nonsense). I am exercising, I am counting every calorie, weighing and measuring everything, logging everything. I am drinking all my water.
As I was walking in from my car this morning (it was a GORGEOUS morning, by the way, and taking the 15 walk from the parking lot and a walk at lunch helps keep me active during the day) I was visualizing what it will feel like to see that number on the scale. The number that has anything EXCEPT a 2- in front of it.
I will see 199
How will it feel?
Overwhelming and explosive.
I know, that sounds funny. But as I was thinking about it, I felt that pride just bursting in my chest. Exploding. Tears actually started to well up a little as I thought about it. I would call for the hubs so he could see the glory. All that I have worked for, coming to fruition.
It will fuel me to keep going.
I am SO close.
Then I stopped - what will I do, if on 7/6 I DON'T see this "magic" number.
Well, I would be lying if I said I would be totally ok. There WILL be disappointment. HOWEVER, I KNOW I likely be at the lowest weight I have seen in my adult life, and THAT will still be something. I also know that if I don't see it on 7/6, I will see it VERY soon after.
So, what kind of randomness do YOU think about during the day? While you are walking?
Soldier on, my friends!
