Losing focus on my goal is the main reason I end up failing!  Life gets busy; I get tired; I get distracted by other “emergencies”; I get sidelined by temptation; I make excuses, by my HORMONES,   etc… are all signs of losing focus.  If I can keep my GOAL as the single focus in my mind, I DO SUCCEED!!  In order to stay single minded like that takes a TON of on purpose EFFORT!!

That’s why each day I’m doing mental tasks, taking action and engulfing myself in my HABITS!! If I plan to succeed in kicking the junky carb habit or attaining my clean kitchen habit, I must be OBSESSED for these 21 days!!

The sad truth of it- we are 3 days in and I’m already losing some “gusto”…the excitement of the contest is slowing, I am realizing my goals are TOUGH and LIFE is starting to get in the way– for instance- tomorrow is my twin girls’ Birthday…am I going to be able to resist the candy, cake, pop and ice cream??  I know I can if I FOCUS and not let myself have a “pass”…I committed to this goal- time to follow through!


Okay— I looked up a couple Bible verses about being single minded, they help me realize that being DECISIVE and sticking to your goal is VERY important!!

James 1:8…A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Psalm 119:10…I’m single-minded in pursuit of you; don’t let me miss the road signs you’ve posted.


We’ve had a bit of the sickies going around here this week…my son especially.  He’s got a DR appt today for an ear infection– hopefully with meds he’ll get back to working out with me– I miss my lifting buddy!

My diet has been good for day 1 and day 2– yesterday I weighed in at 128….down a pound already– I haven’t seen 128 in a while so I was happy.  I’m on cycle day 29 today– I’m expecting TOM anytime!  I wish he’d hurry up and come!

Anyhow…today’s back workout will be good– my back feels a bit toxic and needs a good SQUEEZE!!

Stay focused today!!
