B ~ .... BLOG:
Over the last 6-8 months I've become quite good at maintaining, wobbling between a few pounds... however, I am NOT suppose to just be maintaining! I still have those last 10 pounds to go and they are stubborn!!! I always seem to look at "where I've been" when determining goals...what's worked, avoiding fear of the unknown, letting doubt and frustration determine the next path I'll take! While all these things are necessary, most times these reflections turn my efforts towards drastic goals as a way to get the scale to budge!
I think it's time for me to turn my focus on "where I want to be"! By creating an "ending vision" of myself it will be easier to focus on the steps I need to take and create long term success! Who knows...those 10 pounds just may pack up and leave, all of them may never leave, maybe the reflection in the mirror will tell me when I've reached that goal! Regardless I know that by creating an eating and exercise plan that I am willing to sustain for a lifetime is where I want to be rather than just obsessing over a number on the scale! If I am fit and healthy does it really matter if I wear a size 6 or 8, weigh 130 or 135, have a 26 inch waist or 28, as long as I am comfortable with myself the rest are just numbers! I am not comfortable yet, but I can SEE in my mind what comfortable is and that's where I'm letting my goals take me!
L ~.... LIST GOALS:
I will take a photo at the beginning of this round...no excuses!
I will go back to planning meals the night before!
I will only eat treats that are planned and if not use the "Sweat it to Get it" rule!
I will start small and build on cardio minutes and calories burned weekly until I find balance that works for ME!
I will focus on strength training minimum 3x weekly...I have to do this if I'm to reach my "Vision self"!
I will continue drinking 10 minimum glasses of water daily!
I will create a collage and post it in my log notebook remind me off all these things as I start each new day!
C ~.... CORRECT HABIT:
While not necessarily an "unhealthy" habit, I need to make myself get away from the laptop each hour, even if for only 5 minutes! I find it easy to get absorbed in all that is happening, helping and supporting others....a couple hours can pass me by without even realizing!

This motivator speaks VOLUMES about the way I feel towards this journey! The lessons over time here are far more valuable than anything I could have imagined when I started! I've learned, and am still learning, that setbacks are necessary to make LIFE long changes and build on the emotions that will carry me through nearly every situation life throws my way! I've not reached my goal yet, but no matter how long it takes I will remember the steps it took to get there and celebrate every one!
If this inspires you, pass it on....you just might inspire someone else
You deserve the very best achievement of which you're capable. The challenges and setbacks and disappointments are there to make you determined enough to get it.
When it absolutely seems like there's no way forward, keep going. There's a way.
If you're not getting the results you expected, see it as an opportunity to experiment with other approaches. You'll likely find something that works even better than you could have imagined.
Eventually you'll look back on all the challenges and be thankful for them. You'll realize that the strength and effectiveness gained in working through those challenges added great value to the whole undertaking.
You won't avoid all the setbacks, but then you really wouldn't want to. For you can choose to take them all in stride and let them make you that much stronger, that much more determined, and that much more successful.
Instead of feeling sorry for yourself, feel inspired about yourself. After all, you had the courage to get started in the first place and you have the determination to keep going no matter what.
