OnE dAY At a tIMe!!!

I’m a big thinker.  A planner.  A deliberate goal seeker.  I over-work myself.  I over-do it.  Pedal-to-the-medal!  Sometimes….it’s exhausting!

onedayatatimeThis approach to life – while passionate – can blow up on you if you don’t watch it closely.  Even a Maserati gets a flat tire sometimes!  With the running of the London Marathon today — it brings my mind back to my Marathon training strategy.  If I had gone out for a.l.l. of those required training runs — with the weight of 26.2 miles on my back – all at once  — the sheer burden of it , well….I would still be on the couch, instead of a Marathoner with a shiny (and VERY Cool) Finisher’s medal.  Big goals, need to be tackled in little pieces.  One run at a time, sometimes one tree at a time, one street sign at a time.  One — whatever-it-takes at a time.

I’m going to try going back to my Marathon mentality.  One day at a time, will bring me the prize I seek.  Strength, energy,  healthier food choices, self control, and (yes) weight loss.

Sage advice from an American hero.  Great thanks Mr. President!

Ciao for now….Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
