STARTING OVER (AGAIN)...

Through failure we learn to succeed! This is a blog about fighting back. It's about picking yourself up off the floor, dusting yourself off, and getting right back in there. It's about holding yourself accountable, having the right mindset, and learning to live a healthy lifestyle.

I have failed more times than I can count. I've reached a point in my life where I've decided that giving up is no longer an option. I've decided to devote 360 days toward my health and well being in the hopes that I can turn my life around.

Join me as I take the journey and try to stay on the path. Learn from me through my successes and failures, and help me learn from you. As one blog I am weak, but as a community we are very strong. Let's Succeed Together!

Day #85 - Refusing to Give In

As I suspected I awoke feeling like garbage.  I wore my CPAP last night even though my sinuses are clogged.  As a result this morning my mouth felt like it was stuffed with cotton balls.  Anyway, I got up and my very first thought was "no excuses". 

How often do you see a pro athlete proclaim that they couldn't get it done because they were sick?  Never, that's how often because they don't make excuses.  I decided that today I wasn't going to make any excuses.  Today I was going to act like everything was fine and I was going to push on.  In fact, I didn't even mention to anyone that I didn't feel good and I just plugged on through the day.  I don't even think anyone noticed.

I ate healthy all day and got my gallon of water in.  At lunchtime I went to the local park and walked for 1.5 miles.  I was breathing heavier than usual because of the congestion, but I still got it done.  When I got home I played outside with the kids before dinner and then worked on remodeling my bathroom after dinner.  It was a full day and I was successful.  Today I proved to myself that it can be done; I can be sick and be healthy at the same time!

A great Day #85 is coming to a close, I want a repeat on Day #86.

Stay Strong!
