Put Your Behind In The Past

Or something like that.

That's what went through my head when I did my sissy girl knee pushups this morning that were actually pretty hard. It has been a long time since I've done a real workout with real pushups. For the first couple, all I could think was how pathetic it was that these felt so hard to me. And, again, I started to beat myself up about the last several months. . my eating. . not getting up at 4am to make exercise work. . .blah blah blah. Then I slapped myself in the face (figuratively of course, this would not be a wise move whilst in sissy girl knee pushup position) and remembered the wise words of Pumba. What's done is done. There is simply no need rehashing or regretting. What I can control is the now. And my now is looking pretty good.

Remember the lessons, but not the mistakes. Moving on. . . .

Thanks Pumba

  3. Hey! I'm pretty proud of my "sissy girl push ups"... At least I can do those. :)... Thanks for being an amazing example and expressing some of my own thoughts that I didn't even realize were there. I love the person you are and what you're working to become.
