Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

Week 34: "There is no 'try'"

I am pleased with my progress so far but not satisfied.  

I went for walk/runs six days this past week, five of which went for over two miles, and I have actually felt quite good after them!  I have also been very focused on my diet, while consciously allowing myself a daily indulgence of microwave popcorn and diet sodas (in addition to my 100+ ounces of water intake).   Yet, here I am up a pound over last week and still stuck on a relative plateau.  

Thus, I must reassess. 

Over at my other blog, Falcone’s Crossroads, I start each Monday with an inspirational quote for that week.  This past week’s quote came from wise jedi master Yoda: “Do or do not; there is no ‘try’.”

In other words, do what is necessary. Leave no excuses. Have no regrets. 

So for week 34, I am making the difficult decision to can sodas and bag popcorn (puns intended).  Further, I’m cutting out eating after 9PM.  These are tough decisions even for just a week, as they are habits that have become crutches for me.

While putting these decisions down in writing, I worked really hard to not include “try” in my wording.  After all, these “sacrifices” are luxuries the poorest of the poor have no choice in; the least I can do is to DO.  

So, as always, I thank you for your prayers; this can’t work without those. I’m talking to you, too, Yoda!
