Not quite halfway there

I’m not even half way through my 60 day challenge … but serious progress has been made.

How have I been doing on the whole “60 first day” thing? (You can read about that here.) Not fabulous. Not terrible.

When it is all said and done, that really isn’t bad, is it? Not bad, not great?

Somewhere in the middle is something to celebrate.

Somewhere in the middle means you are sticking with it. You aren’t so over-inspired that you might fizzle out, you aren’t so under-motivated that you don’t get up and work on it each day. Somewhere in the middle is safe from falling off the edge in either direction. It means you are focusing on forward, not anywhere else.

I have managed to re-inspire my motivation when it waned. I have stayed steady in my goals.

I am eating an 80-90% plant-based diet (kind of difficult to switch to that) and I am getting movement and sunshine every day. I also began juicing twice a day.

The result so far?

  • 7 pounds lost
  • 12 points down in my glucose level
  • BP completely normal
  • Dramatic improvement in my kidney

AMAZING!

Yes, it is work. Every single day. Work. Hustle. Try. Repeat.

But totally worth it.

Whatever your goal, your pursuit, your dream, you goals — stay the course. Every little thing you do counts. Every tiny step gets you closer. Stay the course.

I am anxious to see what day 60 will bring. I know anxious is rather a negative word. But that is what I am.
