First things first, in case you didn’t get my email, click here for your 12/31 check-in, and thanks to those that already did so!!
Now, on to more important matters. Yes, we’re a mere five days into 2012 and I’m already breaking out words like persevere. This came in the mail for me just before Christmas and while I am not one for the feel good pep talks and warm fuzzies, Endorphin Warrior is right up my alley. It was hard to settle on this particular band, but “press on” wasn’t an option, and without the proper context, it sounds kind of like a sticker or some set of directions. Anywho…each order comes with a little card (mine had a few, actually) with some Warrior Wisdom. I had the perfect words on mine:
verb (used without object)1.to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly.
Where do you need to persevere? Is it with the small things like drinking more water or getting enough sleep at night? Maybe it’s a little tougher if you are on this journey without much of a support system? Leave a comment below and let me know. I’ll be praying for you, and a little giveaway never hurts!
P.S. Please don’t think I have got this down to a science or have arrived in any way shape or form. In fact, the only shape I’ve arrived in is somewhat rounder thanks to a seven pound gain over the past couple of months with limited running ability and too much eating. Really, I just let myself go to squash any fears that I’d gone overboard to chase down some stick figure fantasy. Right.
Thanks to Shirley, I’ve got some of the good stuff at the office and at just 50 calories a piece, I don’t need to go crazy. (Of course this was after the four – or was it five – firecracker truffles. In one sitting. Guilty.)
