A little inspiration up in here!

" Sacrifice: Giving up something good for something better.
Success: The successful person is willing to do what the unsuccessful person is not willing to do. 
Character: The ability to carry out a worthy decision after the emotion of making that decision has passed.."
- Hyrum W. Smith -

While I may have given up on maintaining this blog over the past ... forever, I have not given up on my journey. I am still chugging along my path and even lost over 10 lbs. since last time I updated my weight loss chart. While I celebrate every pound that is no longer part of project Mike, I also kick myself for putting my health goal on the back burner to simmer when I need a full on rolling boil.

At the risk of a "that's what she said" joke, here are are a few refocusing self affirmations:


 - SACRIFICE 30 min, 3 times a week from my family so I can be with them for many years to come. Do it when it sucks! 

- SUCCEED by going to the gym and busting out the cardio, keeping up on physician visits and by being a conscious eater. Do it when it sucks!
- Exhibit CHARACTER by never, never, NEVER letting setbacks, disappointments and frustrations determine my destination. Keep doing it when I suck! 



  1. Are ya here for real ? Are ya on plan ? Are ya staying ?

  2. I have been worried about you! I, of course, wondered about the obvious, and I am just happy that you are not giving up (or dead!).

  3. So great to hear from you Mike. Don't give up the war on obesity. You are so worth it!
