This year has been interesting. It definitely did not go as planned and not for just me, but for everyone. I personally thought this was my year, after two really tough, life changing years we were so hopeful it would be a great year, we had so many plans and high hopes that things would start to look up. But it hasn’t been a good year, and I’m not complaining, it has been so much worst for so many others. Yes lots of travels and events were canceled, no biggie. But other stuff with my recovery has been so hard. I just hope 2021 is better.
Last year on October 1st I started the last 90 days with The Hollis Company for the last 90 days of the year. Here was my start today journal for the last 90 days of 2019.
I am proud to say that by doing the last 90 days of 2019 and being focused and writing my goals down daily that I was able to accomplish all my goals except the goal I was going to achieve first, which looking at it now that goal should of been above, oh well, it didn’t happen anyway. It’s something I am still struggling with since brain injury and still daily working on, I haven’t reached that goal yet but I have made huge life changes that are supportive of it.
What did happen is that I created new habits I took into 2020 and still have to this day. I no longer eat fast food, but every now and again I will have fast food but I no longer crave it, want it or need it. I also quit drinking soda, I rarely have one and honestly I feel so dehydrated when I do have one. But sometimes I do, not even once a month, sometimes I really want a sprite or root beer. We also changed our eating out habits and only eat out once a week and grocery shop weekly and cook at home.
Basically all of my 10 dreams I made happen, I did. It was definitely hard work and I was determined and I’m so glad I did. This practice really was and is life changing for me, I do it daily but for the last 90 days I do an additional one specific to that time.
Thursday, October 1, 2020 is the last 90 days of the year and I will be doing this practice again because it definitely worked last time. Here’s my goal for the last 90 days of 2020.
Comment If your participating and let’s keep each other accountable.
One habit I picked up last year with the last 90 days is drinking half my body weight in water or more. The card I pulled during my morning routine on 9/30/20 was a perfect reminder. Also not having a Dutch Bro’s coffee today, starting a day early.
My card pull today on the first day of the last 90 days. Well said.
My first day back to Orange Theory in over a year. Happy to see that I am where I left at a year ago, but I am so much further than I was when I first went back after my accident.
I love how the orange theory app has all my workouts. I will post a few below that have importance.
My very first workout back after my accident on October 22, 2018 just 5 months after a severe TBI and Diffuse Axonal that I should not have survived. I didn’t even get home from the rehab until July.
And my first orange theory class ever 12/13/16
I have to say, I’m patting myself on the back and proud of myself. I joined determined to lose weight after I broke my back and I did lose weight and it helped alleviate pain from my herniated discs. I was determined, I showed up, I put in the work. Before my TBI I was almost to my goal. I felt great and was feeling really good about myself, I was strong. I’m so thankful for the change, it saved my life. Doctors claimed my health had a lot to do with my healing. I’m determined to get back there again. It will happen, just at a slower pace.
My first class back was a success. I ran on the treadmill most of the time, the first 1.25 miles without walking and was able to do the exercises and rowing. So glad my fitness is still with me. Oh and I had to do it wearing a mask the whole time.
