The Olympian In Me

Like so many others, I have been glued to the Olympics this year.

I am amazed and fascinated by the strength and power in these athletes.

They are at the height of their fitness, abs and all.

Last night I had a dream that I had a six pack.

I woke up disheartened to find my six pack covered by the mess left from too many donuts and soda.

Ah to have been born an athlete.

But wait! I do have that drive to succeed in my goals and I know I can become fit again!

I can either let these chiseled bodied ladies and gentlemen depress me or enlighten me.

Strengthen that voice within me that says, “Come on! Get up! Get moving!” or sit on the couch with a bag of Doritos, making the situation worse.

While I am honestly a bit jealous, I am in awe of the time and dedication our Olympians have committed to achieve their goals.

And while I realize I don’t have that natural ability to ever be able to compete in well…any athletic competition, I do have a motive (that I believe God put in me) to be the best “me” possible.

I am finishing week two of my goals and feel pretty good.

I am not seeing astonishing results and yet I am not frustrated by that.

Day-by-day, workout-by-workout.

I can do it!

Thank you team USA for not giving up through all of those complications and injuries and problems that come up.

The stories told about struggles and hardships remind me that I will have mine too.

Sometimes it feels as if you have to fight against something bigger than you.

It may feel impossible yet you find this determination from deep down to keep going.

To never give up.

There is an Olympian in me.

I may never look like the most fit athlete, but I will continue to persevere to win my “gold”.

My goal is within reach.

I will become the healthy and fit me that I deserve to be.
