I woke up with a flash of clarity that was almost shocking in its duh-ness: The A in GREAT should stand for Affirmation. It has all the qualities I was looking for in a bonus resolution. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s positive, it’s life-changing, and it’s something I probably wouldn’t do consistently without the encouragement of a resolution.
You may remember that I am a huge believer in affirmations—I used them pretty successfully in my triathlon training and races. I also think they are the only way we can actually, sometimes, steer the elephant. (And I highly encourage you to just click the link, because I’m not planning to explain that wonderful but cryptic phrase; my new hero Tom Naughton has already expounded on it.)
Anyway, Affirmations will have to wait until March, because for now I have Adventure (also good). I thought for today’s Adventure I’d take Jen’s suggestion and try Workout A from this site. I’m planning to finish it one hour before the commencement of Carb Nite, because that’s what you do to get crazy strong, apparently.
