There are a ton of things that have not worked for me in the past.
- Trying to change everything at once
- Hating to workout b/c I did not want to have huge muscles or because I dreaded the activity
- Deciding that I had failed the first time I didn’t stick to my plan
- Being certain that it was genetic and I could not do anything about it
- Believing it was what I deserved
- Saying “If I can’t do it right & perfect, why even bother.”
- Believing I’m not as good as others
- Believing that I am not worthy
- Being too overwhelmed
All of these are thoughts and actions I took when I first tried losing weight. Over the years I have become able to train myself to think positively about losing weight. I learned that I should break things into smaller goals and focus on healthy habits one step at a time.
I learned that every day is it’s own day, and even if I do not think I did well that ONE day, I was fine because I do my best every other day. You hear that? I do my best every day, so one day of inconveniences are okay. I know I will survive and that every thing I have accomplished is still there. I learned that I make a plan as a guide, but life does happen so I leave room for life. I have also learned that by changing to healthy habits, I feel better about myself. I can do just as well as others…oh wait…I don’t compare myself to others, I just try to improve upon myself. I am “me” why should I compare myself to anyone but me. This journey is really about progress & action rather than perfection. I came to that conclusion about my weight loss, health & fitness.
Wow! I learned all that…except, now that I’m working on other goals all those same thoughts and actions are coming back. Why? I’m really not sure. I do know that I can change them just as I did for my weight loss, health, fitness journey. A goal for improving me, is still a goal for making a better, healthier me.
2012 will be different for me because I am beginning to work on my thought process toward my other (new) goals as well. I want to be a healthy influence on people. I want to share with everyone my success. I want every to know that they can have success as well. I will break down all my goals into small, manageable steps. Each step will become a daily action. I will reach my goals stress free. I will reach my goals by striving for progress each day rather than perfection.
ENERGY is my guiding word this year. Each step I take will give me momentum in building my energy. I thrive off energy that I create when I reach great accomplishments. In 2012 every day is going to be an accomplishment for me! I will grow personally, financially, spiritually, & healthily. Each day I will be one step (maybe two) closer to my goal.
Challenges, Do-Yous, and Goals — Oh My!
