“Success breeds success.” – Mia Hamm
I’d like to point out that in less than 10 days I have made good strong progress toward my mini-goals. I am choosing to celebrate every little victory I can. The more I celebrate the small successes the closer I get to excellence. Today I am choosing to intentionally push myself. It’s a risk. But I think it is a risk worth taking. I am going to see if I can achieve my first mini-goal today in my weakest activity. See, if I don’t succeed with this challenge it won’t be a failure because I am aware swimming is not my strongest activity. Yet, if I succeed it will be the biggest motivating boost I could have. Imagine the thing that makes you most nervous about the competition being the one you achieve the goal for first! I may not be able to lift my arms tomorrow but that will be temporary and worth it if I can tackle the challenge today.
Breakfast – honey almond granola with whole milk, coffee with milk and sugar
Lunch – green smoothie (coconut milk, strawberries, pineapple, banana & spinach)
Snack – granola bar, fruit leather, watermelon, cheese stick
Dinner – Ate dinner with my parents and sister last night and had take-out Chinese food. Chinese food is such a weakness of mine. I had pork lo-mein, white rice, and an egg roll. Of course there are left overs to eat for lunch too.
Swim! As mentioned above, I am shooting for a challenge goal of the full 10 minutes today. I am not looking to do it fast or perfect. I’d just like to be able to swim the 10 minutes non stop without drowning. I figure drowning would not be excellent. Wish me luck, prayers, good vibes or any other positive thoughts you have my way this afternoon as I shoot for my first mini-goal. I will catch you excellence. Mwuhahahaha
