Where have I been? I haven’t posted a blog since my last weigh in- we all know those are boring. For once I haven’t been MIA because I’m being a slacker on the weight loss. In fact, just the opposite; I have actually lost weight the last two weekends. Now, if you have read my previous posts you will know this is a MIRICALE for me. On the weekends the food Demons chase me down, tie me to the kitchen table, and make me eat all sorts of TERRIBLY delicious things.
Remember how a week or so ago (maybe longer) I called myself a Dragon Warrior? There is something about it that makes me feel like I can accomplish anything, and I actually chant it in my head when something I’m doing (usually exercise) gets really hard. Turns out, other people like it too! I think it should be a club or something: “Dragon Warriors; kicking butt and taking names” (literally getting rid of that butt jiggle); It is all about doing better than YOU did before, not as good as someone else, just your personal best. Here are two of the comments I received just this week:
“Just ran 5 miles in the wind I so wanted to stop after 1 mile or before that actually. I kept making excuses to turn around and go home because running in the wind SUCKS! But I kept going because I remembered your blog from last week when you ran in the wind and I so wanted to be the Dragon Warrior too! Thanks for the awesome motivation, I really needed it today…”
“Dragon Warrior!! You!! My friend, are amazing!:)”
So, what do you say? Wanna be a Dragon Warrior with me? I’d love to hear your Dragon Warrior stories.
