90 Day Health Challenge: Week 6

The Mid-Point Crisis…of Sort

Oh, crap…this thing is halfway over!  And, I wish I could say that I’d reached all of my mid-point goals – not so much, but I haven’t given up.  At least the challenge has prodded me to move closer to them.  I did have a small epiphany this week though.  While at my chiropractor’s office, I had to use the restroom and noticed a framed quote on a table across from the toilet.  I don’t recall the author, but I do remember the encouraging message.  If you know why you are doing something, and what positive influence that “why” will have on your life, you will accomplish the “what” you have to do to get to your goal.  Suddenly, I realized that I’d been cheating myself out of focusing on the “why”- my “what” has been a burden, not a bridge to my goal.  The bad thing is I knew this.

So, instead of telling you about my minuscule victories, and my whopping failures this week, I’m going to tell you “why” I took this challenge and “why” I want to be healthier.  Fair enough?

1.  I want to live a full life-span and beyond.

2.  I want to have all my faculties (mind, vitality, continence, sex drive, and teeth) in the golden years.

3.  I want to have energy to play with my Missy Moo (toddler girl).

4.  I want to keep looking 15 years younger than I am.

5.  I want to actually feel like taking a walk or run because I have energy.

6.  I want to set a good example for my children.

7.  I want to set a good example for you.

8.  I want to throw my Ibuprofen away…for good.

9.  I want to know that I’m doing everything I can for my health.

10.  Last, but not least,  headaches really suck.

I am going to write these 10 “whys” on a large board and read them every day this week.  If it doesn’t make a difference in my progress, nothing will.  This is my heart- my reasons for doing this.  What are your reasons for wanting to be healthier?  Please share.  Be well-be beautiful.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
