Visualization... does visualizing my goals really work? Sports psychologists say it does even if it seems silly. I think I am going to give it a try. Each day I am going to try to visualize my day in the areas of exercise and fitness. I am going to see myself make better food choices and run faster during my run. I'm going to see myself feeling good about the success of the day. I am going to recall what it feels like to be victorious over a craving. I'm going to see myself as strong, fast, powerful, happy and enjoying whatever I am doing.
I would love to know if you have tried this sports tool and if so, how has it worked for you?

    The only visualization I use is for when I am working on my abs, because well..they aren't visible! So I gotta use my imagination a bit when toning those muscles to know even if I can't see them, they are still there getting stronger. In terms of a whole body visualization- I dont think I've ever been that bold.

    Good luck!

    It seems that everybody visualizes to a certain degree. Perhaps those who are better at it are able to function on a higher plane than everybody else. Dunno for sure, but it's worth a shot.

    You should definitely try it out. I know a mental image of myself in the future during a tough workout keeps me going!
