Fitness Challenge Week 13 Update: Kevin
I'm impressed with how well Kevin has been doing with avoiding sweets and fatty foods. His words about perseverance are definitely resonating. Here's Kevin:
Weight 269. Hooray. I lost 1 pound from last week. The goal of the fitness challenge isn’t losing weight, but getting in better physical shape. But I can’t help but feel good about my progress when I look at the scale and see I’ve lost some weight. I realize it’s my perseverance and not my hope that helps me achieve my goals.
American author H. Jackson Brown, best known for his inspirational books, once said, “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins, not through strength but by perseverance.”
When I took on this challenge, I knew I wouldn’t achieve it overnight, but through perseverance. It’s a daily lifestyle change that’s changing my life.
I didn’t skip any of my workouts this week, so that’s a good thing.
