Focus, focus, focus! Do you ever notice that as you're approaching a goal you've had for a long time, you start seeing more and more temptations and resistance? You can see the light at the end of the tunnel, yet the world starts spinning a bit, it gets harder to focus, everything around you starts pulling at you, trying to divert you from that goal. There's even been a book written on the subject, The War of Art by Stephen Pressfield.
This is the final Friday of our Hip Hop Abs infomercial test group. Monday is the final day we get to workout with Shaun T. We then immediately switch locations and start our After photos and videos, followed by interviews the following two days…and then it's basically over. I have been called back the following week for a round table discussion with some of the more impressive weight loss stories, but other than that it's a done deal. I'll be sure to write a total wrap-up look back blog post, but for now I want to focus. Focus on this weekend, and "focus" itself.
This weekend. I've had other weekends in this process where I've slacked just a bit. We all have our reasons, don't we? My biggest has been the start of college football, where the game times have broken up my timing on my Saturday workouts, so I've slacked on them. Of course that's a horrible excuse, just as any excuse is…that's why it's called an excuse. However, THIS weekend is the LAST weekend…if I can keep my focus just for 3 more days, then I'm at the finish line! Can you imagine? Who can't do 3 days of focus, right? It's easy to say, hard to do, especially with all the cravings of the world still right there. I am committed, though…so close to my goal…so close to being able to say I'm under 200lbs for the first time since high school. Let's see what happens!
