Baby Step Goal

Friday, January 18, 2013

Daily Visualization

For today's visualization, focus on the next small milestone you'd like to accomplish. Sometimes, thinking about the baby steps (the next five pounds) can be much more manageable than always focusing on the long-term outcome (reaching your goal weight). Remember this whenever your weight-loss journey seems overwhelming.

Obviously my daily, short-term, mid-range, and long term goals have everything to do with no binge-ing. But... I wanted to set 1 more short-term goal.

This has been interesting for me to think about. My goals have always revolved around my training, my next event, my fitness, etc...

I need to think about this. I am not sure my new goals have a way to be measured. I could keep a blog or a list. But... my goal is to focus on the daily-small-miracles. I used to do this, and I SAW them. Since I've been "sick" again it seems I've lost track of my daily small miracles.

So, friends and family... share with me your daily small miracles. Find one thing each day.

Yesterday, my small miracle. As I was walking out of my hair salon, a car had a window sticker that said:

Miracles Happen

I believe miracles happen too. Do you?

    Miracles are around us every day but we just don't know about all of them!

    Seeing my daughter (3) do a puzzle by herself without help.

I love your idea of looking for small miracles. It should be a great motivation to stay on track.

    This is a good way to look at it broken down into more achivable goals vs the big large goal!

It's nice to know people care.

    I'm half chinese, but my youngest child has blue eyes. My mother has blue eyes, and so does my husband, so there's actually an even probability for any one of my children to have blue eyes. My other son has my dark brown eyes and hair. But their faces are shaped exactly the same. I think each of these things is incredibly cool. Each person is a unique and marvelous creation.

    Netty, I love the idea of breaking things down into small, achievable goals. Sometimes the big picture is just too big.

As for me and miracles... I dunno, maybe I listen to too much news on NPR, but I am amazed at life in America sometimes. We have so much! Our terrible problems would be a joy to have to most of the rest of the world.


Hope you have a great weekend!

  Yes I do! My dad lived for 15 years with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and that was a miracle to me!
