Daily Visualization

Picture yourself going clothes shopping for your goal size. Think of the joy you'll feel when you finally zip up that pair of pants, or slip easily into that dress you've been eyeing forever! Remember that feeling of happiness and pride whenever you need a boost today.

This is a good one for me. When I shop for clothes I am never certain what size will fit and I am often disappointed with how things look. I know it will be easier to find clothes that look good and really fit me well, when I am at my goal weight.

Today -

had lunch out today (Desi Junction), no seconds or heaping plate
cleaned house
had company in the afternoon diet iced tea and cherries
my friend tried to teach me how to hula hoop

    Looks like you had a great day. emoticon
The hoop always lands at my feet. Visualization is a great tool which all those successful people use. If we see in that small size we are bound to work hard to get there. Mine is to see less stomach when I lie down on my back (LOL) and see some ribs instead.
Have a wonderful weekend.

    I used to hula hoop for hours when I was a kid. I wrote about it in my blog recently. It's a great workout, and torches calories! Agree with the others to check out MOSTMOM1's page.

    Good visualization.
I tried out a hula hoop in June in St Louis at the Curves there. It was awesome. I really enjoyed it.

    I haven't done the hula hoop since I was young. I did go last summer and tried on new clothes just to see where I was. Because all my pants were just hanging on me. I hope you have a great day.

    I bought an adult sized hula hoop at the farmer's market a few weeks ago. It is harder than it looks. I can last a couple of minutes before having to start again, but I keep going over again. It's a hoot!

    I liked this visualization! I am going shopping for the first time tomorrow. I'm nervous and excited; I haven't shopped in a store in years and I am not at my goal, but I've lost enough inches that my clothes are hanging on me and I don't want to start a new school year looking baggy.
Have fun with the hula hoop! I am imagining it will be a great core workout, and bring lots of laughs!

    I really liked this visualization exercise too. When I did it this morning, I actually felt good about myself. I hate it when I go try on a bunch of clothes and nothing looks good on me. Then I end up feeling worse about myself. I cannot wait until I reach my goal weight and stuff actually does look good!

As for hula hooping, you should check out MOSTMOM1(
/mypage.asp?id=MOSTMOM1). She's been using hula hooping as one of her forms of exercise and even takes a hula hooping fitness class. She does vlogs and many of them are of her and her daughter hooping. And she is HILARIOUS too. One of my favorite bloggers to follow.

    I haven't been able to master the hula hoop! Sounds like a fun day! I'm on Day 5 of Spark Coach and getting the same visualizations. Wonder if they will repeat the ones you missed at the end for you?

    I saw a book one time that uses hula hoops for exercise. I can do the hula hoop on the wii but that is about it.

    I would like to look better in clothes as well. I love cherries and freeze them. I would love to do a hula hoop again too.

    This would be a good visualization for me, too. I love clothes and usually have to buy from Ahab, the tentmaker. It will be so wonderful to go into a store and be able to wear the cute clothes. emoticon
