I Wish That Wishing Worked!


Monday, January 07, 2013

Sometimes I wish that wishing for something like a trim, fit body worked. But it doesn't. And I guess that's fair, but I still wish... emoticon

At a very difficult time in my life my cousin once said to me "You eat an elephant one bite at a time." That makes sense to me...I didn't get this way over night and I'm foolish to think that it could go away quickly and without hard work. Oh, and here's another wish...I wish getting heavy and out of shape was as hard work as getting fit is! emoticon Maybe it wouldn't happen as often. Unfortunately getting fat and out of shape is VERY easy.

I have several dragons to slay this year...they range from financial to fitness and from spiritual to intellectual. None of it will be easy and it will ALL be worth it. Maybe that's a clue that a goal is actually meaningful? What is is worth to you? What will it cost you to reach your goals? What will it cost you if you don't attain your goals?

I suppose I'd better get back to working on myself and my goals because I want to be a make-it-happen kind of person!

    WHAT IS YOUR FIRST AND PRIMARY GOAL? YOU MAY HAVE OTHERS, BUT TRY JUST FOCUSING ON THAT PRIMARY GOAL AND YOU MAY FIND THAT THE REST OF THE GOALS JUST FALL INTO PLACE WITHOUT YOU EVEN THINKING ABOUT THEM. IF I LOOKED AT THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF WEIGHT I HAD TO LOSE - WHEN I STARTED - THE NUMBER 234 POUNDS TO LOSE WOULD HAVE SCARED ME TO DEATH. SO I PUT MY WEIGHT LOSS TICKER AT 10% OF THAT. WHEN I REACH THAT GOAL, I MOVE IT ANOTHER 10%. FOR ME IT WORKS AND IN THE PROCESS, I AM EATING FAR HEALTHIER AND EXERCISING MORE.

    Sigh...........wishing..........if only. But, we can do it anyway! It may take more time and be a bit harder than rubbing some old lamp, but we can do it! emoticon
Blessings,
Cindy

    Yup! I hate that healthy is so hard. But, if I really allow myself to be honest and think...everything I have that I love took work. My child. My job. My vacations. My boyfriend. My schooling. My friends. It all takes work! And, the work is hard. But it is worth it to have something I love in the end. And, usually the work gives me things I didn't even know I could have--bonuses, a car, a payment for an expensive education, accolades, a scholarship, fun experiences (ie. sporting events, private parties, new friends)!

We can do this! We deserve to be healthy! We are worth it!
