Well, its hard to believe that 16 days have already passed. As I write this I’m already into day 17 with just over a week left to go. I look forward to reaching the end of the challenge and measuring the results. I almost typed “seeing the results”, but I can already see them. I can certainly feel them. But I’m holding off till the final measurements to see just how far I’ve come. But I must say, from what I can see and feel so far, its pretty impressive what changes can be made in a healthy way in only 24 days.
But, as a friend pointed out last night, it really isn’t about the 24 days. The Challenge serves to establish new habits, to form a new foundation for the weeks, months and years ahead. And as I mentioned in my introductory post, that’s really what this is all about. But often we need a ‘jumpstart’, a bit of a boost to get us going in the right direction. The Challenge is providing this for me, and its exciting. If you’re out there with a desire to establish a balanced, healthy lifestyle, this could be a great opportunity for you. So often we get stuck in “I can’t”, when all we need is the right circumstances to remind us just how much we can do.
