My 100 days challenge has been a rocky. It has been really hard to be consistent due to being pregnant. Nothing is predictable. One day you can feel great, and the next you are completely out of control of your body.
But, I have not quit. My goal is to still get up early on a consistent basis (weekends vary), have a morning Bible study to start my day, and plan out my daily time management schedule to keep me on task. Daily accomplishments in the home still need to be met, and I really tired of glancing back at my day or week and seeing nothing but a long list.
I do have small children and homeschool, but that doesn’t mean that time cannot be spent tending to our home, my blogging, my Avon, or hobbies. That just means that I need to prioritize my time.
Even though some days may be more challenging than others and I put an “X” over that day for the challenge it doesn’t mean that I need to quit and start over. To me, it simply means “make an adjustment for the next day and give myself grace for today”.
Staying exactly on course for 100 days may be in itself a definite challenge since I am a spontaneous person, but at least at the end of it I can look back and realize through ups and downs I did not quit. Perseverance and determination helped me to accomplish this goal.
If setting a goal means life altering moments cannot invade and allow something to go off track, then is it really a goal or challenge? Is the real challenge facing life’s daily curves and finding a way to stay on the course even when falling off? Sometimes 2 or 3 days may go by and I can’t write down my task list, or have a Bible study. What do I do but realize that my goal is slipping away and I need to persevere by accomplishing all or part of it the next day.
When someone is battling weight loss, or a fitness goal quitting cannot be an option. If a week goes by where nothing goes on the meal plan but fast food then the next week get back on track!
