Motivational Monday…

Goals seem to be wildly popular over on my FB quote page.  So, today, I am talking about change.  I posted this quote “It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t.  It’s that some people are ready to change and other are not.”  A guy named James Gordan said that.  I want you to think about it for a minute.  All the times people have “changed” what they were doing or eating only to fall back in a “rut”.  The truth is, they weren’t ready.  They really weren’t.  My biggest problem was food.  I have “fixed” that.  It is currently my lack of energy and pain.  Now, some things we can change, and others might be a bit out of our control; however, I decided to take this quote one step further by realizing I can have mini-goals.  These mini-goals allow me to focus on one thing at a time and make fixing the bigger picture seem less out-of-control.

I changed my losing weight goal to increments of 5.  Easy.  I like that much better.  I changed my sugar detox to a splurge only once in a while because this mess gets on my nerves.  Easy.  I split a creme brûlée with my girlfriend on Saturday and felt better.  I changed working out every single day, ha, ridiculous, to doing some sort of exercise daily.  Even light house cleaning counts on My Fitness Pal.  Whoa.  It cancelled the calories out.  I win.  Winning.  Winner winner chicken dinner.  Got carried away…anyway, these mini-goals are really helping.  Lastly, daily affirmations.  I am about to start my “mirror board” where I put all kinds of things on it to look at daily.  Result baby.  Results.

Change You
