Last week's dream focus: Continue managing pain; shut Satan down when he uses his little tactics on me; continue to pray, trust, have faith, and remain positive; be still and patient; keep my eyes on God and His blessings!
What went well: I'm relatively pain-free and feeling much more like myself than I have in a long time! That feels AMAZING! Mentally, I have clarity and don't feel as foggy as before. I'm getting back into the swing of blogging and feeling re-connected to life which, as you probably know, has been a struggle for me the past three months. I did begin logging food in the LoseIt app today... I'll give myself props for that good start!
I started and finished the first of five new books I purchased called 'Quitter' by Jon Acuff. Amazing. I'm a lot further along in my dream job journey than I realized... or maybe I really knew it deep down and just needed the confirmation to propel me. I'm now on to book two called 'Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work That Matters', and it's already blowing my mind!
Now it's time to continue the hardcore pursuit of my dreams.
Challenges: Thank goodness for second (and third and fourth) chances! I'm focusing on embracing this delay in my weight loss journey and trying to learn from the mistakes I've made in the last few months. I won't beat myself up over them. They happened. They're behind me. I made poor choices and am, once again, dealing with the consequences of those choices (weight gain and another set back). I have to own up and be accountable for my actions, forgive myself, and move forward!
I have to KEEP SWIMMING!!!
This week's dream focus: Forgive myself for mistakes made over the past few months and let them go; start getting back on track by making good choices in every area of my life; commit to logging food in the LoseIt app; rely on God to help me shut Satan down when he attacks; and be patient while getting back into the routine of healthy living. I can't forget these things take time!
