Staying on this side of the bridge
I'm in a zone, starting the month off well. I know it's only been three days, but it's been three days of clean eating and great exercise.
October is promising to be a low-hassle, if not hassle-free, month for me to focus on me.
I may fall down 10 times, but I will get up every time and keep on going.
Journaling kept me honest at the beginning of September so here we go again. You might get bored with my posts about food and working out, but it's the only way I know how to keep at it.
My brother was sick for most of this year and is, thankfully, on the road to recovery. His doctor told him to "stay on this side of the bridge," meaning don't focus on being 100% better, focus on one step at a time.
So while I would love to say that I'm getting close to the 180s, I have to tell myself to stay on this side of the bridge. My focus right now is 192. That's it. Nothing beyond that.
Right now, this side of the bridge is the low 190s and I won't venture a glance across at the 180s just yet.
