As you know, I am back to blogging. If you want to know what happened, then read Evelyn’s Blog is Alive and Well. I’m a little late with publishing this post but better late than never. Tuesday and Thursdays are my days to post; I’m determined to stick with the plan.
Side-note: Planning, time management, and following through are not my strengths, but I strive to do better every day.
I Am A Slacker
In 2020, I ate a lot, didn’t do much exercising, gained weight, didn’t read or write much; there’s more, but I don’t want to bore you with it. I think you understand that I slacked off in many areas of my life.
Gradual Change is Best
We are in the second month of 2021 and I’m slowly, but surely planning for success in many areas of my life. I’m not rushing anything, just planning and easing my way back into much of what I used to do.
Investing in Your Success
I bought a few items to help me on this journey and they are: a study bible, prayer journal, fitness journal, fitness planner, and a few pieces of fitness equipment.
I’m also hiring a Personal Trainer to help me reach my fitness and weight/fat loss goals; I’ll keep you updated.
Side-note: Follow my journey here on YouTube.
Keep Silent About Dreams & Goals
People say to move in silence, and I understand why it’s an important discipline to practice.
I used to share my goals with others, but I didn’t do that this year and I won’t do it in the future. Instead of sharing my goals, I’ll keep them to myself and work quietly to reach each goal.
Side-note: I’ll share successes and/or challenges as I reach them.
Why Stay Quiet?
I’ve learned why it’s important to keep goals to yourself. When we tell people what we plan to do, it creates the false perception that we’ve already accomplished those goals, which results in us not putting in the work to reach goals. However, when you work on your goals in silence, you’re more likely to achieve what you’ve set out to do.
I know it sounds crazy, but there’s a lot of truth to it. Every time I publicly share my dreams and goals, I never get anything accomplished; this year, I promised myself not to tell anyone my goals. I can show you better than I can tell you.
Are you working on your health and fitness? Let me know in the comments, so we cheer for each other.
Until next time, take care of you.

The left hand need not know what the right hand is doing. Afterall it’s your journey, not mine, not anyone else’s. Although we may be on similar paths, it’s still not my journey but yours. You and God are the only ones who need to know what’s happening. One of the sisters in my congregation dropped over 100lbs in 7 months last year. Nobody knew. I saw her and didn’t recognize her. Then we talked and she told me what she did and is doing. The first 2 months of lockdowns, she gained 30 lbs and said no more. By keeping silent you have no input from others who may be well meaning but others are true saboteurs who can destroy your goals before they even take off. Actions speak louder than words🙂👍🏾💕🌷
Hey Ms. Tracey!
That’s right. My mother used to say that saying about not letting the left hand know what the right has is doing. Those sayings stand true forever.😊
Amen to everything you said. If the sister in your congregation had told everyone what she was doing, she probably wouldn’t have had the amazing success she had.
Actions most certainly speak louder than words. I love your comment!!👍🏾💖🤗
Ms. Tracey said everything that I thought to say . Wow! Sometimes, we have to show others better than we can tell them. Your post is confirmation for me concerning some things that I am working on. With God, all things are possible! Keep moving in silence, my friend.!!! 🙏🏾
