A middle finger!
That’s pretty much the attitude I have taken about this whole “Hell Week” thing. Sure, in the back of my mind I know that it’s probably coming for me, kind of like the boogeyman in all those scary movies I’ve watched, but it’s not going to stop me.
When we went to Fitcation this year, we got to listen to an amazing speaker, Joshua Medcalf. One of the big takeaways we received from him was to change our beliefs. No, not your religious beliefs, the beliefs that you have in everyday life. If I believe that “Hell Week” is going to drag me down, it will. Instead I’m going to choose to believe that I will overcome it no matter what.
So, that leads me to my scale pic for the week..
Down 1.4lbs from last week.
At first I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t more, but again, I’m changing my beliefs! Any loss gets me that much closer to my goal.
This last week I’ve started running again. Thanks to New Balance (@NewBalance) I’m now sporting some fancy new running shoes. You can see them in the video below. I’m loving them and realizing again why I love running so much. I’ve written about it before on my own site, but it really comes down to the fact that when I’m running no one needs anything from me. I don’t have to be a mom or wife in those 30-40 minutes that I’m huffing and puffing. It’s glorious!
So anyway, watch my video.. it’s really the best part about this whole post.
Is it just me or are my videos getting longer?? I’ll work on that
No week is complete without thanking the people and sponsors who are helping bring my goals to fruition!
