My August plan is rather simple: Be The Moon.
No, I’m not sleep deprived.
Wait, yes I am but I thought of this before I woke up at 2 a.m. So ppbbbttt!
Be the moon? What does that mean?
The moon seems so mystical and mysterious but she’s really not. She hangs out in the sky doing her job. She orbits the Earth and in doing so she pulls the tides. Her consistency is so predictable you can time her efforts. The moon is never frittering around with things that don’t matter. She knows her place in the Universe and she does her job. Simple.
Be the moon!!! I can do that. I know the work. I know I can do it.
Here’s how I am going to be the moon…
Liquids, minimum 80oz
Protein, minimum 70g
Fiber, minimum 20g
That’s my job as a post-op weight loss surgery patient anyway, right? Yes, right!
If I just produce my average results, I could hit 199.9 by the end of August.
But…199.9 is not my goal.
My goal is to be consistent. Like the moon.
When I do it, goals are crushed.
That damned ol’ scale will fall but I don’t need to arrive at the end of the month at the same time as a particular number. The number will happen…as long as I am consistent so the more predictable and moon-like I become the faster I’ll get to see it. It’s not a race, however, it’s a commitment to doing all the little things.
Excuse me while I put myself into orbit…
