The rest of your life begins right now. Ready, set, go!
Success is not final, failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts.
- Winston Churchill
Fall seven times, stand up eight.

I need to focus on me more and the whole weight loss thing less. No I don't mean to give up all my health for laziness, I guess what I'm trying to say is I am tired of worrying so much about what I eat and what I do, when I really need to focus on how I carry myself, how I feel, and how I really want to look. We can diet anytime but it is a journey that carries us to the top of the mountain. A friend wrote about this in a message this morning. I'm still somewhere near the bottom of the mountain when I'm looking up at the top and wanting so much to be looking down. But in the end it all begins ME. I have the tools, I have the mindset most of the time. So why am I still sitting and looking up? Well I have this thing called "self sabotage" going on. Lose two pounds this week, gain one next week. Yeah I'm still down one but now I have to relose that other one and then some. I don't know why I do it but I can't get my mind in the place it needs to be. I remember being focused, driven, motivated. Now I'm just going through the motions.
I need a aha moment again. My mojo is waning and it is time to work on ME again. So with that said, I'm finishing my week out strong. I may just have a streak going, but I don't want to ruin it by talking about it, so today I'm accountable to me.
