The Streak, what’s it gonna be?

I have been thinking about my streak for a little over a week. It was actually conceived many months ago but only birthed recently.

It’s a tough one, similar to what I’ve done before, just longer. More grueling. Certainly doable if I’m committed. And, I am.

But these last few weeks have been mentally brutal. I’ve been up and down. Mostly down. It’s been rough. I’ve been beating myself to a pulp almost daily. Frustration, disappointment, many MANY tears. I’m not quite myself. And now that I have decided on my “streak” at least I have a focus. It’s still not enough.

But tonight, tonight I had an epiphany. I can’t be so hard on myself that I will never succeed. So, 2014 will have two streaks for me. One physical (and intense) and one mental. The mental will be more difficult than the physical.

Stay tuned.

Have you come up with your streak? It’s gotta be life changing. Really. Or it doesn’t count.

Well?

2014, are you ready for this?

I’m a firm believer that a challenge must be big enough to change you.  If it doesn’t mentally, emotionally and physically affect you?  Its just not quite big enough.  And, my challenge for 2014?  It’ll do more than just that. 

My challenge in September had me running 1 mile for every day of the month, 1 on the first, 2 on the second, 3 on the third and so on and so on.  It was by far the hardest challenge I’ve ever ACCOMPLISHED!  But… its time to go to the next level.  And… beginning January 1, we move to the next level.

Stay tuned… the post is coming.
