I think you should just put a big red line through your first goal. To say you're going to lose weight is so frickin broad. It's no wonder you're overwhelmed! I know that you know that if you do the other goals, the first will happen so why write it! Concentrate on the smaller goals and maybe even break them up into smaller goals for the day. "Today I will walk for 30 mins". "Today I will drink at least one glass of ice water". "Today I will tell myself I'm beautiful no matter what I weigh". "Today I will not weigh myself". Don't worry about tomorrow or yesterday just focus on today.
As I thought about this a bit more, I decided she was right. I was also encouraged by the knowledge that this woman has done AMAZING things...all through hard work and motivation. If you need motivation, you MUST check out her Facebook page. I know her personally and I really mean it when I say she is a down to earth, "real" person. Her pride and accomplishments are well deserved!
I did look at my list and if I'm being honest, it really just set myself up for failure. Let's review them again, shall we?
- lose weight and earn a "star" at TOPS
- log my food EVERYDAY
- complete 30 minutes of walking, 3 times this week
- do the bedsheet workout, 2 times this week
- update my blog at least one more time
So far, the only think I have done is update my blog (with this post)
She said to put a big red line through my first goal, so here it is....
How about you? What is one, small simple goal you can set to get you through to the next day?
