Never Knew My Mind Could Do This

I’ve proved something pretty strong as of late. I’m proving to myself that I can let my mind control my body instead of my body control my mind. That’s some heavy shit right there right?….lol

What I’m trying to say is I never knew my mind could do this. I’ve always let my body quit on me because I wouldn’t even give it a chance.

I’m amazed at what I have accomplished in such a short period of time. I don’t have a big head trust me on that & this is far from a bragging post.

What it is though is a sign of my commitment to better myself in my mind and my body. I’m proving to myself that I’m choosing what my slogan says, I’m choosing life. I’m choosing to live.

What I’m feeling now is amazing, it’s something I’ve never felt before. I just wanted to share this pic below with you all of my hard work that I have put in over the last week up to today.

I’ve made it my goal to now walk 10K steps a day. Roughly 5 miles a day. I never thought I could do this and I’m dang proud of myself.

Proving to myself that anything is possible

  1. cool thing about that graph is you’ll be able to watch the 76.3 sedentary number go down a lot as you continue to lose weight. Seeing what you’ve been doing, makes me proud of you man. Gotta admit, when you had your troubles and I saw the slogan on the site, all I hoped was that you yourself would “get” what you have yourself quoted as saying. Doing good work, love the focus on daily goals, keep it up and look forward to doing a run/walk again this summer with the fams

    • Thanks Will for all the support you and you family show me it really means a lot. Yes I had to dig deep and find exactly what it was that I means by that statement. Think I’m proving to myself that it was always in me. Yes for sure want to get together and do another walk. I’m sure it’ll be very different this time around….lol

  2. Amazing, isn’t it? I feel like this past year I have learned so much about the connection between the body and the mind, and how they can push on each other. Good for you for finding out just how strong that mind of yours can be, man! Keep it up!

    • It defiantly is. It’s such an awesome feeling. I’m really in a zone. I just actually enjoy it right now. I know there will be days where I will hate it but they will only be days and that’s the difference.

      • You’re so right again, man. There WILL be days you hate the changes you’re making. I know this first hand. I will be honest, there are nights I lay in bed as I head to sleep thinking, “I am so done with this. I miss the food. I am just going to say the heck with it tomorrow. I can take a whole day off. I don’t care” and then I wake up, in the literal light of day and shake off the night before. I honestly don’t think those moments will ever truly go away. We just have to be ready to battle at a moment’s notice.

    • Thanks patty. I need you to come to Michigan so we can go CVS Shopping… I just want to genuinely thank you for all the support you give me. It really means a lot to call you my friend and we have only met twice and the first time I regret was too short maybe a brief hello @ fitbloggin 11. Cant wait to build more memories.

  4. You SHOULD be proud! These are small, but great accomplishments. Daily victories, my friend. Daily victories. Way to go.

    • Thanks so much. I totally agree. I used to look at the finish and never even admire how I was going to get there. I wanted to lose the weight overnight. I’m learning so much more about the process this time around. I’m finally leaning to embrace the small things, that later add up to the big.
