Letting others help you
Wednesday, November 15, 2006
After reading GOAL BUDDIES ARE GOLDEN....you know, that article about asking other people to help so you could achieve your goals, I was inspired! That day I told my deep water aerobic instructors that when I hit my first goal, I'm treating them to lunch. With that little promise, they all became enrolled in my success! I think the classes got more challenging and they pushed me and the class a little bit harder. And because I didn't want to make them wait forever for a 'thank-you-lunch', I would swim a few more minutes after class to burn a few more calories.
Well, I achieved my first goal - to lose 20 pounds by my birthday - and I have 4 wonderful lifeguards at my local pool to thank! Lunch is on me!!
