103 Imperfect Days
Friday, December 29, 2017
On September 18, 2017 I felt a new feeling of determination and drive. I took myself to the gym that day and started tracking my food. 103 days later I have lost 28.5 pounds. It hasn't been a perfect run of perfect tracking. It hasn't been 103 days of perfectly timed activity. What happened was I was persistent. I continued to track food even if I ended my day by throwing in the towel and saying "the heck with it". I still took myself to the gym even if my efforts weren't completely focused. Knowing how the holiday season can wreck havoc on the best of intentions I logged my weight on Halloween and last week decided to see what my weight loss has been for these food driven holidays. I've lost 13.5 pounds between Halloween and Christmas. 13.5lbs. I think in years past I've gained that amount in that period of time. Right now I'm feeling pretty good about my efforts so far. Perhaps the next 103 days will be more consistent. Perhaps not. Persistence not Perfection will be the goal. Everyone have a safe and wonderful New Year! Here's to Imperfection!
