Remembering how Dear2 slimmed a few inches just before the wedding, it’s a reaffirmation of the saying, ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way’.
A few weeks before the wedding, Dear2 was at a last dash to look her prettiest on the big day. The arms are still not good, flabby as usual, and the little tummy still shows. With a final ditch, Dear2 embarked on a 10 runs or a cumulative 50km until the wedding day. If I din remember wrongly, we are talking about 10 runs or 50km just 3 weeks to the actual day. And that means a run every alternate day, and 5km each time. Time was running out and the pressure was indeed great at that time.
Run 1, 2, 3, 4. Very tired. And there dun seem to be any effect at all. The arms still look flabby and Dear2 was going to be a bride with flabby arms. And time is really running out becos it’s simply too tedious to run every alternate day when weeknights are work-laden and weekend nights are out.
Run 5, 6. Hey, am I imagining things? The arms seem to tone a bit now. But with less then 1 week to go, it’s almost an impossibility to do 4 runs until the actual day, unless 1 run everyday until Fri (the dinner is on Sat).
Dear2 eventually clocked 50+km, but in just 8 runs (that means some runs are done in 6, 7, 8km). And turned out as a pretty and satisfied bride on her wedding day.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Is there something that you really want? Something that you REALLY want, and not just something that ya, I can do with if I get it. Some people concern themselves with ‘how’ to get it done, and spend many headaches over the ‘how’. In my opinion, you need to identify the ‘what’ first, what is it that you want to achieve? And once you have defined the ‘what’, the ‘how’ will come along naturally.
What is it that I want to achieve?
