You Got This!
Do 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!
