Life loves to throw obstacles in our path.
There are a few choices that you can make when that HUGE obstacle is standing in your way:
- Stand in front of it and do nothing.
- Drop to the floor and cry.
- Walk away and ask "why do bad things always happen to me"
- Look at it and accept the challenge and either go over it or charge the hell through it!
One thing that I have learned over the years is to stop asking "why me?" Everything happens for a reason. It's how we handle those situations that shows the type of person we are. It shows you either as a quitter, whiner or a fighter. Which one are you?
As the we approach the mid weigh in I am preparing to continue my fight with fat without being involved in the Lighten Up challenge. I have not done to well with my weight and I'm not going to make excuses. Instead of charging through the obstacle I chose to not push myself. I have lost since the last weigh in, but sadly it will not be enough to make it through the second half.
On a happier note my daughter Brittany Cosper has gone above and beyond the challenge and she will be going onto the second half of the challenge. She makes me and her father so proud! We love you baby girl!
I will not be signing off "Until next time" as this will be my last blog since I will not be making through the second half.
Instead I will be signing off with.....
Don't lay there giving yourself a pity party, get up off your ass and make your life the way YOU want it!
