I made a commitment standing on the deck at Phoenix International Raceway. As many of my foodies know, I am a huge NASCAR fan. As we awaited the race to start and we watched the fighters fly over, I said if Tony can get to this point ...so can I. Tony Stewart is...well as a friend said "Your Guy". Tony was committed to winning the Championship. Hard work and perseverance got him to that point. But, he did have two races to go...
My journey was also with hard work and perseverance, but I knew I wasn't done yet. I have maintained for a year now, I seem to maintain well but the losing gets harder the smaller you get. Okay so now what? My new goal is to lose 14 pounds, why 14? Well that commitment I made at the race, Tony Stewart's number is 14.
Okay I have a commitment and goal, now what? At anytime or place in your journey you need goals. That point in time when you say "YES" I did it. When we are proud of who we are and what we have accomplished. So how do I finish the race? Win the Championship and get the checkered flag.
The recipes are here and I know I eat well. My research and blogs help me as much as I hope they help you. So I have the right fuel in my tank. I need the right set up...So I took a look at what got me this far. Will (my son, for those of you who don't know) moved out this fall. I made his room my workout room. I have my bike, treadmill and weights. My journey was mostly pedaling for miles, I do love riding my bike. Loving what you do is half the battle. But, years ago I walked on my treadmill and loved it too. A very good friend of mine is walking in the mornings and talks about walking uphill. My treadmill may not have the beautiful scenery but it does have an incline.
So I have decided to workout in the morning on my treadmill and ride my bike in the late afternoon. So I am stepping it up! I have the fuel, the right set up and new shoes ( rubber for my tires ). I will update my race, my goal is to finish my race by the time I return to Phoenix International Raceway in March!
