Yeah only the 10th of October yesterday and I already 'couldn't' fit my run in. :/
Grant it, the original goal was to 'just get out' and run 29-31 days this month. (But I took it to the next level and made it 'Daily 5k's') o_O ...I don't know why I do that to myself. I just do.
So today, I was lucky enough to get 4.2 miles in... :D Yup, so tomorrow we add another mile and 1 mile on Sunday; that'll make up for the missed 5k. ;)
Now let's dissect this. Was it an actual Fail?!?! Or was it simply an opportunity to excel (above and beyond expectation)?
Truth is, I choose to believe the ladder.
That's your choice my beautiful bloggers. Your perception and attitude will determine your success in all that you do.
Big or small things... :)

In our biz, we have trainings, seminars, business plan meetings and corings and yesterday, I attended a business plan meeting PURELY to satisfy my BIGGEST supporter, my 15yr old son. His Entrepreneurial self was seeking more info to build his dreams on. Then, as if that wasn't enough, he actually brought a prospect. o_O
(So damn proud of him... For 'sharing' his passion and our gift that we have stumbled upon.)
I didn't think much of it. Figured, I have to make it to more of these and brush up on the plan that holds my families future. (And rub elbows with some pretty incredibly beautiful people)
Out of no where at the end of the meeting, it happened!
I was one of the successful people standing in the front of the room because of where our biz is. Not just for a 'Pin Level' but for REAL commissions earned on my time, efforts and love for what I can do for others. I've done it!!! I have built the foundation to our UnFranchise to grow BiG & StronG in the next few years.
And no employer is reaping all the benefits for what I do; my family is.
And who better to have in the crowd applauding my efforts than my son who has never doubted our business or my efforts?!
It was an incredible feeling. It completely took me by surprise! I didn't quite realize where I 'actually' stood HERE AND NOW...
until that moment that I was up there and I looked at the pride in my son's face.
It HAD to be shared folks. Because sometimes, amazing things just happen due to all of your efforts and day to day activities and way of life.
...you just have to be willing and open to catching the view.

Don't confuse patience with settling. Working hard and being consistent is key to achieving ANY goal.
However... Be realistic. There WILL be set backs. There HAS to be. THAT'S where true change and growth occurs. THAT'S were success is found. After living and making it through those set backs.
Keep in mind that having the 'right' frame of mind is critical. No matter what others may think or be ignorant enough to share. They may not believe in you but whether they believe in you or not DOES NOT define you or what you are capable of!
ONLY you can define who you are and what you are truly capable of accomplishing. If you WANT to lose weight, if you want to be an amazing Entrepreneur that stops making others rich with your blood, sweat, tears, time and money; YOU CAN DO IT.
Just don't give up on yourself. You are the only one that you can depend on to see you all the way!
In short, things may not start happening NOW. But if you believe in the changes that you are capable of and working at... Then keep planning, working and FINDING & MAKING your Momentum!
Happy Tuesday Bloggers!

I can't believe I got a run in today. But yup... One 5k done four more to go this week. (In case you've just joined me, I have started a new challenge for the month of October... 28/31 consecutive 5k's or runs in the 31 days!!)
Got to enjoy my siblings (even the one in Mexico!!) and Bito today because it's Monday. Boy how I look forward to our Mondays!!!
After getting home from the outing and driving around dropping the kiddos at school, paying bills, making calls and getting a little work done, got stung by a bee IN MY HOUSE, took off to run, picked kids up and cooking some late dinner.... I really DO love my life.
Past 'my' willow tree and just couldn't help but share it with you all. :')

No 5k today...
Heard about stress fractures sneakin' up on you and figured I'd not take a chance.
A little break might just be a smart thing.
After a (much needed) relaxing day, took off to 'watch' my husband play some two hand touch football with one of our teenagers and a co-worker. Then it turned into CoEd two hand touch football.
Yep... Got in on a little game. Had a couple TD's, blocked a few passes and ran quite a few routes.
41 years old and yes, I can hang a little. :)
Never really thought much about what all the hard work I make sure to fit in day to day does. LITERALLY...
It helps to ensure that I can live life to the fullest with my family... Never looking to sit on the sideline just because my body is not used to 'functional movement'.
Life and what happens in life may get me sidelined but not if I can help it. And keeping active and fit is how "I Can Help It!"
So tomorrow is a start to a new week.
What plan do YOU have to get your body used to functional movement???
Be creative. Use your love for fresh air, music or your dog! Put it together with a little jog/walk/dance/stretching!!! And allow your body to start functioning outside the stiffening norm!!!
The sky really is the limit.
