One Meal a Day to Six-Pack Abs 027: What does weight loss have to do with being a successful work at home parent?

challenge yourself and get flat absThis is Day 27 of my challenge to get a 6 pack.

To be honest I feel totally stupid talking about six-pack abs.

For goodness sake, I’m a grown man of 43!

You’d be forgiven for thinking I’m obsessed. After all, I’ve written about them every day for the last month – but I’m not. I’m determined and focused but not obsessed.

Writing about it every day is a pain, and I look forward to the time when I’m not blogging about it daily.

I’ve mentioned before that I’m doing this to see whether I can get good results from an unorthodox and frankly sub optimal method i.e. eating one meal a day, not exercising other than walking, and not subscribing to the idea that I need perfectly optimized nutrition to successfully reach my goal.

What I’ve also been looking at is the mindset of dieting. I want to see if I’ve got what it takes to actually go through with this.

I want to see if I can surpass my own previous best and achieve something amazing and meaningful.

I could happily have stopped after I lost the first 30lbs. My weight was at an acceptable figure and my body composition was good enough.

I had to dig pretty deep into my reserves of will power to get that far, so, what possessed me to push myself even more and go for a goal that so many others desperately want but so often fail to achieve?

Well, I suppose that’s the answer… so many others fail to achieve it.

I know that this is a site about finding success as a work at home parent, and I know I haven’t written much about working at home, but I will.

I need to do this first though because it’s crucial to much of what I want to write.

The sub-optimal element is a theme which transfers to running a home, building a business, writing, blogging, social media and many more besides. It’s certainly not limited to fitness and weight loss.

So much of what I’m doing now through this challenge is pertinent to what I want to share with you about how to make working from home really work.

Hopefully all will become clear in the weeks ahead.

But stick with me for now as continue my quest to get a six pack. Arggghhh! I said it again!
