Just because you drop one egg…

DOESN'T mean you have to throw the other 11 after it! This is where I am right now and I'm so grateful, after reading Cat's extremely honest post about her situation, to hear that I'm not the only one struggling with my training. I miss one walk and have beat myself up so bad I miss the three walks after it! Why oh why do I do that to myself? It doesn't make any sense!

I am attempting to challenge myself to sacrifice my comfort and time to possibly save the lives of millions….to save the lives of my family, friends, neighbors, and strangers across the globe. I'm attempting to become an active participant in this world in a way that far exceeds my impact on any other three days in my life…

And I think it's about darn time I start giving myself some credit for that instead of taking the whip out every time I stumble, don't you?

SO…from here on out I am freeing myself from the guilt of past….let's call them non-successes. I'm jumping back on track with the 16 week plan and not looking back. I will do my very best to balance my family, work, and the 3-Day WITHOUT guilting myself if one gets a bit less attention than another in a given week. I'm changing the world and more importantly myself for the better NO MATTER how many miles I walk today, tomorrow, or in three very special days in Arizona. Whether I “Just do it!” or “Keep going”, I know I’m going to be out on that walking trail!

Thanks, Cat!
