Intentional Winning: Victory by design. Creating the journey and the outcome for every aspect of your life by participating in the process. That's how I define Intentional Winning In Life, but it seems that it has a deep seated core that is balance.
To create the journey and the outcome for every aspect of your life by participating in the process, you better have your you-know-what together! I do really well most of the time for all categories of my life. I never get all of it right at the same time, and I also have the Achilles heal in my life that is my weight and body image. That's what is bringing this all up and out today.
I can't find the balance I need to get this weight off and feel good about my body.
I know I'm failing when Dave makes mention that my stomach is showing...while I'm wearing jeans (not ill fitting) and an over sized t-shirt. Showing? What he was really saying was, "I just noticed how fat you really are." Now this is not a slam Dave post, it's an acknowledgement that he's right. I need to find a way to manage my meals, exercise consistently, and get the weight off.
The really tough part is that he doesn't understand my struggle. So I need to get to work, on my own and find the motivation to intentionally exercise, be acutely aware of every morsel I put in my mouth, and think about it as the way I live, not the difficult situation it appears to be right now. I know I can do it. I can. I will.
