You Got This!

you-got-thisDo you ever just stop and wonder sometimes if any of this is actually working?

Boy, I know I sure do!

I mean, I have the evidence that it’s working on my body, in my performance, and in my reflection in the mirror, but sometimes Mr. X rears his ugly head and I question whether my REAL habits and conditioning have actually changed…

… Or are all my new behaviors and new-found self-discipline a result of having Deb around me all the time.

The past 10 days gave me my answer.

I spent the last week and a half in Virginia on a very tough martial arts immersion trip – alone… all by myself.

No Deb to make sure I imagineered, or filled out a commitment sheet, or ate the right food, or worked out every day.

Just me and my desire and my self-discipline…

And I was terrified that I would fail this test.

But I didn’t – even in the face of amazing paradigms and situations where I surely would have knocked back 2 bottles of wine all by myself, I didn’t buckle.

No wine – not even a drop.  Free day was awesome with a big ole bacon cheeseburger and fries for lunch and a couple of pieces of pizza and 2 beers for dinner… But that was it.  And it was awesome!

I worked out every day – hard!

I got up and imagineered every day and completed my commitment sheet every day.

I ate right every day – even though it would have been so much easier to grab fast food (and I could have justified fast food with the workouts I was pumping out).

AND, I got a ton of work done to boot!

I don’t write this to brag, but rather to let you know that questioning the process and whether it is working is normal and natural.

But when tested over and over again, I passed!  I HAVE changed!  I AM a new person!  And I’ll bet YOU are too!

I am prouder of that fact than I am of the karate training that happened in Virginia.

You CAN do this.

You ARE changing!

Believe it!
