Music has an unbelievable power to inspire and motivate us. We have all had moments in our life when a song has picked us up off the ground and got us back into the game or at times has taken us from good to great in business, family or personal lives.
Like Richard said to Tommy in the classic comedy Tommy Boy, "You have derailed". I feel like Richard is talking directly to me with regards to my success in keeping to my commitments this past week. I started this adventure 2 weeks ago with the intention of dropping 28 pounds (Start Weight: 223) in preparation for my October 7th Chicago Marathon. After losing 4.5 lbs last week I am disappointed, but not surprised, to say I did not lose any weight this week. I am still 218.5 lbs and looking forward to turning around, what I consider an wildly unsuccessful week.
Welcome back to those who are following me on my journey to drop 28 lbs in 90 days! For those new to this blog, this is the second part in a 13-week series on my journey to health and wellness. Feel free to check out my 1st installment 3 Commitments in 90 Days to get more details. So, after one week I am 4 and 1/2 lbs closer to my target, weighing-in at 218.5 lbs (Previous weight was 223 lbs). Great news, right? Well, sure it's a good start, but like others who have started out fast, whether it be in fitness, business or sports, "It's not how you start, it's how you finish that matters." So, while I am pleased with the weight loss, I am cautiously optimistic since I still have another 12 weeks to go before I realize my goal.
