Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be. God isn’t finished with you, so keep on moving forward. Even the snail reached the ark by persevering! – Ps Rick Warren
I am very reflective and introspective. I love to look back and think through life, learn from my challenges and responses and know where I am in reference to where I am going and how much more needs to be done before we get there. Many days I find that unless I have spent time in reflection, it is harder to keep walking with a spring in my step and joy in my heart. So I sit and reflect and tag coach along to assess and contribute.
Meals were on point! Kudos! Did you manage to work out as well?
Saturday and Sunday are my rest days so no work out, unless standing in the parking lot for two hours talking counts ?.
Ha! You have jokes. Rest is important for recovery ?.
I have been learning the importance of rest. In fact the break I took has been helpful… I’m able to push my body because I know where we’d got the last time.
Push your body as in endurance?
This morning one of the exercises was sidekicks and I was amazed at how my mind didn’t freeze when it showed up but begun to figure how to do it. Wasn’t easy but I completed the set.
? ? ? ?????.
☺ It was exhilarating.
I bet it was. That’s fantastic! You’ve come a long way, grasshopper ?.
Indeed! Its mind blowing to realise that just 5 months ago exercise terrified me now it’s exhilarating. Thank you for your steadfast support.
Power of transformation!
True, now I know change is possible no matter how hard it seems at the start.
You committed and did the work, which combined with willpower and determination goes a long way.
It helped that I had a drill master by my side ?; and I mean that in the nicest way possible.
Ha! Drill master
Yup! Recently I was thinking about who God has made me and He reminded me one of the names He calls and then I realised that there’s a very specific way to train to rise into that and a good drill master who pushes you beyond your perceived limits is an important part… Thank you Capt. Drill master
Wow! What’s amazing is your commitment to stay true to the course and be honest about the journey given the distance. It’d be easy to lie about progress, workouts or lack thereof since there’s no “Drill master” physically present to watch your every move. I hope you give yourself plenty of credit for that.
Yes it’d be easier to lie but I learnt that the loser if I lied would be me, my son and the generations tied to my out coming. As for ‘Give credit and amazing,’ those have never really crossed my mind ?. I simply thought this is what people do when they give their word. Thanks for pointing another point of celebration. It’s really been school… Learning to keep my word no matter what and put in the needed effort
Amen to school. Learn and grow. Even when it is slow going and everyone is passing you, keep walking, follow the dream that God has given you. Keep walking because every step counts.
Stop, listen to God, learn and grow no matter how slow you seem to go.
