Don't Focus on the Goal...

If you've followed this blog you know that I've struggled for many years with improving my health. I've finally reached a point where I've managed to maintain a small amount of success. Now it's time to take the next step, but I believe it requires a new way of thinking.

Instead of trying to get healthy, why not shift focus toward learning how to build healthy habits instead. Follow me as I try to teach myself how to Engineer healthy habits that will allow me to take my health to the next level. Let's see where this experiment goes!

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!
