Right? I can, can't I? I do have what it takes, don't I? I will survive, won't I? Oh the thoughts swirling around inside my pretty little head right now! I'm a mess! I'm excited, nervous, confident, and doubtful....all in one! But I'm ready. At least I think I am. I know how the mind can play dirty tricks on you, so I'm getting myself prepared tonight. To some, it might sound extreme, or even silly, but I think I've got it all covered.....
I went to the nail salon to get my nails done and I had Vinnie, my nail tech hand paint 4:13 on my nails so that in case I think I can't go any further tomorrow, all I have to do is look down at my nails and be reminded that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. If that isn't enough, I'll be wearing the necklace that my husband got me for my birthday snug around my neck to remind me that love conquers all. All I have to do is reach up and touch it to be reminded of that. And if there is still any doubt, I'll be carrying a picture of my 3 sons in my sock to remind me of the unconditional acceptance that can only come from momma's boys. Win or lose, whether I meet my time goal or not, they will still have hugs and kisses for mommy at the finish line. And one more thing for good measure. I'll have the initials B.I.O.M.W (for Baby, I'm On My Way) temporarily tattooed on my forearm.
I've got my favorite exercise outfit cleaned and ready to go and my MP3 stocked with some good tunes. So what do ya think? Can I do it?
YEP. I GOT THIS!!!!!
