Life has no limitations, except the ones you make.
Les Brown, author and TV personality
I am certainly the only person who can limit myself. It is my fault if I don’t make time to run on the treadmill. It is my fault if I don’t push myself harder. It is my fault if I give up.
This is my final post on my Living and Active 5 Week Challenge with www.PEAK313.com. I have completed the challenge and done what needed to be done. But, did I push myself as hard as I could have? A few times. Did I take the easy way a few times? Yes. But, I did complete the challenge. Do I feel or look different? Not really. But, I can do more push-ups in a row. I can run longer. So, there was some improvement. Do I need to keep pushing myself and go another 5 weeks? YES! Am I going to miss the accountability? Yes. But, really, the only person I need to be accountable to is myself. I know what I need to do. I just have to make the time and effort to get it done.
I’m thankful for the challenge to force myself to get active. Now I need to make sure my eating and my activity are in line with each other. Some days I just feel like I break even. With the holidays coming up, it will not be easy, but on those days where food, family and fellowship will win over…then I hope I at least break even!
Here is to finishing 2013 stronger! Still living with the motto:
