This is it.  The end.  With only 5 more days to go.  And my body failed me.  I am unable to finish 75 Hard. cry

Not because I didn’t keep my commitments…

Not because I wasn’t feeling terrific….

Not because I wasn’t seeing the results….

My body simply failed me.  I fell ill and could not do the daily workouts.

Sucks…

But it is what it is.  

I must say that I am pretty proud of myself.  I can honestly say that I did follow through and I benefited tremendously from the experience.  

I completed two books…

I increased my walking pace and distance…

I lost 20 lbs and gained muscle…

I am drinking far more water than I ever had before…

I am sleeping better and my energy levels are definitely increasing…

So did I fail?

I think not. 

I think I once again proved to myself that nothing is impossible, nothing is insurmountable.  You simply need to make a decision, create a system and implement it – unwavering in your focus and determination to complete.

Once I recover, I will continue with the activities of the challenge as I believe they are very important in not only building a healthy lifestyle but also in building the mental fortitude that we all need in order to push ourselves past our pre-conceived limits, helping us to achieve our true potential.  I won’t be as rigid on some exceptions, though – I will enjoy the occasional glass of wine.cool
