I did finally begin to act in May. I decided to get to my -100 pound party. I was 15 pounds away. I I worked hard for two months and was three pounds away from my goal, when I hit a major obstacle. I went on a trip and most of the hard work that I had accomplished vanished in one week, seven days, a fraction of what it took to get to my goal. I was devastated and I haven't quite recovered.
Long story short, it is time for me to actually act upon the knowledge that is within me and that has been so eloquently expressed in this blog.
I have been thinking, and I have decided to log my progress. I want to turn my dreams into goals and my goals into accomplishments.
My current goals and my daily action steps are as follows:
1. -100 pound party-deadline September 30th (15 pounds to go)
-Track my food on Sparkpeople.com
-Drink 64+ ounces of water
-Exercise 10+ minutes daily
2. Read 1 book per week
-Read 1-2 chapters
3. Practice Rosetta Stone Spanish for 1 to 2 hours per week
-Practice for 15-20 minutes
4. Write my personal history for 30 minutes to 1 hour per week
-Write for 10-15 minutes
I plan to post my progress, positive or negative, each day as I transform my dreams into accomplishments.
As for reading, I have discovered audio CDs and am in love. I listened to an entire book that would have taken me a week or month or even year to read in 3.5 hours in the car on my commute to and from work or whenever I happened to be in the car. So technically, I have "read" a book this week. I have started 2 books that are supposed to be finished by now. I haven't read today, but I plan to after I publish this post.
I haven't practiced Spanish for several weeks, I will do so beginning tomorrow. The same goes for writing my personal history.
This is my time to act, and I plan to document my progress for grins and giggles and maybe just maybe to encourage someone else to go and make their own dreams come true.
For God's Glory,
