Last day of queenservice y’all.today marks the last day of the skirmish, but just a foot note in the war.  An ounce in the bucket. 

If you’re my age, these 12 weeks represent on average 1/168th of the rest of my life.   

This speaks to one of the greater truths in life.  Strategy guides tactics, which guide operation.  In this case, strategy is who we are trying to be next year, a thinner, more fit person, moving closer to getting right.  The tactic is the act of joining queen service and creating your plan.  the operation is actually following your plan. 

Operation must be carried out to support your tactics and your tactics must support your strategy.   

If you eat poorly, your not operating to support your tactic. 

If your tactic is to dehydrate yourself in the last week to make the scale look better, did that action support your strategy?  Probably not.   

The Thang in this beatdown was grinders because dieting is a grind.  You get encouragement from your brothers but they are likely not going to be behind you slapping the abelardos chorizo burrito out of your hand.  You only see them in passing and if you’re lucky you get an hour with your accountabilibuddy every two weeks, but… You check in with them.  “What rep are you on”, “I’m with you”, “you got this, stay with it”.   

These are the positive operators supporting your tactics, but the strategy and vision needs to come from you.
