Have you ever had one of those experiences where you thought you knew what was going on? Where you were certain how the world works? Only to find out later you didn’t know the topic at all? Yeah, I have had some realizations over the past 69 days that feel just like that.
First, I have believed, for sometime that I need to read more, but that there wasn’t enough time in the day. I had so many other competing priorities, I just couldn’t take the time to get this one done. False.
Over the past 69 days I have read six books and I’m in the process of reading three others. I had to find the way that it worked for me. Audiobooks are where it’s at. I no longer have an excuse.
Second, you can actually lose weight while eating food you like. I don’t know why I struggled with this for so many years. Just because it tastes good doesn’t mean you have to eat a ton of it. Also, you can still get full and stay within calories. This may not be ground shaking from any of you, but it blows my mind.
The last epiphany I will share today is around working out. For a long time I thought I had to lift the heaviest things and kill myself to get in shape. Nope. I need to lift enough to push myself, but I have nothing strength wise to prove. Slow and steady will maintain what I have and keep me strong.
Progress really is predicated on seeing things clearly and executing on what actually is. As I have demystified these hazy areas, I have found success. It makes me want to work even harder to find more success.
This really is getting fun.
