Lately I have been revamping my wardrobe and moving from muted neutrals that I thought made me look skinnier to brighter, prettier colors which actually look so much nicer.
My new goal is to look good in dresses and pencil skirts again. I'm really drawn to sleeveless sheath dresses so I want to visualize myself looking lean, fit and pretty in a sheath dress without a cardigan or cover-up..that seems so far away at the moment *but* they always tell you to have a visualization strategy so this is going to be mine.
What I need to do to get there:
1. Lose weight (duh, and ha :) )
2. Tone abs (a lot) ..this means cardio and strength training
3. Tone arms (a lot).. this means strength training
I feel highly self-involved when setting a goal like this (you know feeding into media's messaging that you're never fit enough..) so am reminding myself that visualizing myself as lean, fit and healthy isn't necessarily catering to vanity. It's seeing myself as vibrant and attractive both now and even more so in the future.
After being on spark for a few days, I'm finally ready to set a tangible goal:
Over the next 3 days, I am shooting for 30 minutes of exercise a day. That sounds reasonable and doable and will be a good way to kick off a workout schedule.
