Effort!

Below the picture it states, "Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second"



I saw this on Sandrelle's blog I read and I thought it was so appropriate for my journey. It was exactly what I needed to read. She also had this quote which I thought was so fitting:

"To experience real growth, you need to push yourself to the edge -- without going over. It's stretching yourself a bit further than you're used to, just past the point of comfort and into the wide-open space of the unknown. Nerve wracking? A little. Worth it? Absolutely. Because only then will you discover what your body and your spirit are truly capable of ... And if is more than you had ever dreamed." Fitness magazine 2003

I can't thank her enough for posting it. I will refer to this quote often. We just got back from eating and I am SO full and a little bloated but I think it put me in a good mind set for tomorrow. We ran to the store and got my seven gallon of distilled water so I am ready to go. It feels good to have a plan and have everything in place to make it happen.

I have let the people know what I am doing so that will have the support I to get through this. I plan on doing this plan as any figure competitor would who gets ready to do a show. 12 weeks!
