Mintdom – The Fortress

08/11/09 – 6,194

Good morning Mintdom!

I got a little walking in last night – whew!  That felt good, but I do not want to get into the habit of planning to walk at night.  That is VERY dangerous thinking on my part, because there is too much of a risk of something ‘more important’ to take ‘priority’ then doing my intentional walk.  I am going to have to walk this evening though, because I overslept this morning.  I really want to do at least 6,000 steps each day.  I am already thinking that I will have to push my 10,000 steps-a-day goal to September.

I am not ready to toss out the white flag of surrender.  I still have fight in me; although, last night was probably not a great indication of that.  I went to Weight Watchers, and was up about a half of a pound.  I know it is not even a pound, but honestly, it is frustrating to do all this work when it does not show on the scale.  I know, I know – “I am building muscle.”  I hear that. I know my clothes are getting looser on me too.  I also know that I am getting stronger, and moving more then I have since I was in my 20’s and 30’s.  Getting strong and healthy is my main goal, and I DO see that, that is happening. It just seems that I have been doing this for so long, and it is all not happening fast enough.  I gave up in the past; however today I am choosing to listen to Margaret Thatcher.

“You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it” – Margaret Thatcher

Today, think about the battles you are fighting.  Are they worth the fight?  If they are worth your time and energy, what are your strategies?  Do you have a written plan of action?  I cannot tell you enough about the value in writing, and writing in public is like charging up a hill with your army!  You do not have to write in public, like I do, but I strongly suggest that in order to win whatever war you are in, use your greatest weapons – pen and paper, or your computer, and write!  Come back to Mintdom daily – it can be your fortress!

AffirMINTion:  I keep fighting for my goals!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

Life is good!
