Today I did skills testing.
I can look at my results in two ways:
I failed. I did not make the laps, the backwards skating or a few of the other skills.
This is what I need to work on still. I need to push myself to make 3 more laps. I need to practice those transitions until I’m dizzy. I need to skate backwards until I’m just as comfortable skating backwards as forwards.
I choose to see it as a stepping stone. As a bench mark.
Yes, I cried after the test. Yes, I was angry. And by the time I got home – I was determined.
I have the tools at my disposal to change my body and my life in the next 5 weeks.
I have onefitwidow.com
I have Praline who is my accountability partner.
I have an amazing coach who is awesomely inspiring and encouraging.
I have a wonderful team who is supportive and encouraging and is there for each other.
I have the tools. I have the will. I have the drive. I have the determination.
I have the choice and the perspective.
I didn’t leave the test in a good mood – but I am in one now. I just needed some space and perspective. And now I have focus.
