One of the best hockey players in the world, Wayne Gretzky, was once quoted as saying: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!”
Before I wasn’t even in the game.
I was working very hard.
Going no where.
I was floating.
Listening to all the chatter around me.
Now, I am listening to the still inner voice inside of ME.
In my life right now I am taking a TON of shots.
Saying “yes” to new opportunities.
Being open to the possibilities.
Allowing myself to feel deeply and go deeper still.
This week, I was on the phone with M, someone that I have known for almost ten years… She is twenty-something and she is a FORCE.
I was sharing with M my last sixteen week journey of setting goals and achieving them.
Here is a photo of this first journey:
Now after a very fun sixteen weeks of achieving many goals, I was in a quandary. Weight loss is no longer one of my MAJOR goals. Hmmmmm… Now what? I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with this second challenge and I expressed my ‘unknowing’ to friend/business partner.
Later in the day, she send me her ideas via text. My ‘unknowing’ brought out a ‘knowledge’ in her that profoundly helped me and spurred me on. Isn’t it awesome that she even thought of having “party tricks” as a goal!!
Here is what I came up with because of her awesome inspiration:
And here is me getting started to see where I am at: (It wasn’t pretty!)
4 push-ups (the last one was with VERY shaky arms)
No chin-ups (I could barely hang there for 2 seconds)
And NOW I am off moving towards the targets that I set for myself.
The ULTIMATE goal is to be the healthiest ME and live the most energetic, positive-infused days of my life with my brood of boys, family and incredible circle of friends.

Dense theraband looped around the chin-up bar (like a swing)
and you step on it to help you with the chin-up. I need to resort back to this when I’m not doing them. I’m a BIG fan of chin-ups and push-ups! I don’t feel good unless I’m able to do them!
What an awesome idea… thanks for sharing. I am looking forward to being able to do one soon! For now I am just “hanging” around. I love your mentally. You are a force girl!
