New techniques...

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Ok, since I now realize and know I lack discipline and control I'm trying some new techniques to help me.....

1.) I've posted motivation sayings ("Control", "I can/will do it!", "Focus", etc.) on my nightstand mirror. Each morning, I will see these sayings and they will remind me to have CONTROL).

2.) I'mma practice self talking more. When I wanna pick up that candy bar or cookies I will self talk to remind myself of my mission. My own self talk talked me out of picking up some freaking Oreos this week. Go me! So, I know it can/will work. I just gotta do it, EVERYtime.

3.) I'mma (try to) journal and blog more. Life does get busy with four kids, a hubby, full time employment...and not to mention I think I have ADHD, my mind be all over the place sometimes. But, I will try my best.

4.) I'mma review my sparkpage, blogs and journals more for motivation and reminders.

**I've learned in the last few weeks that I love to dance for exercise. I find that I'm more motivated to exercise when I plan to dance as the method. I recently purchased the Pussycat Dolls workout DVD and OMG I'm loving it, so far! Those Dolls work my boo-tay! Next, I'mma get one of the Flirty Girl work out DVD's. Those darn Flirty Girl DVD's are expensive. Maybe I will make that a gift to myself once I reach a milestone where I wanna be in my journey. Hmmm......
