Early bruises in my 100 day attack

Challenges?  First 10 days the hardest? Probably only in establishing procedures and momentum. It's amazing, how, over time, these fall in to disrepair. Comfort zones need to be challenged. time to explore "my palace of possibilities".

day 10, 100 day attack

If anything, my return to a fitness program indicates that I might be aging more than I suspected. Because of the limited mobility of a wheel chair, I have increased my dumbbell and weights training.

Parts of me that I haven't felt in a while are protesting. There is a definite need to work through the pain (discomfort). At Day 10 I have planned additions of exercises as well as increase in reps. I expect my temporary gripping challenges to disappear soon.

I leave my equipment where I can pick it up in my spare moments. My weight is stationary and under control.

Time for a total review of my scripts - do they say what I want, and am I comfortable with them? Telephone calls and cold calls are being recorded so I know in fact how many I do ~ no guessing. Door knocking has been assisted by great weather and friendly people. I am a believer in careful, regular farming. Meeting new people is always a pleasure. Contact and prospecting on the increase

At Day 10 I am increasing all of these essential activities by a mere 10%. I usually find such a regular increease quite doable ~ bearing in mind, what is easy to do is just as easy to forget to do.

During a 100 day attack, I journal and record extensively. This makes periodic reviews of goals easier and more meaningful. I stive to add value to my hours.

On to Day 20 and my next review of my 100 day attack
