November Goals In a Nutshell ....

Saturday, November 02, 2013

I enjoy reading my Spark friends goals for the new month and thought I would put my 2 cents in.

First I would like to share that a couple of weeks ago I noticed some of my pants were 'snug' shall we say? ......... emoticon Therefore, I applied a very simple but effective strategy. It may have been 'tacky' but I put post-it notes with one word on them: PANTS ....... in focal points where I would see daily. emoticon
Every time I saw the friendly reminder ....... emoticon ... It would encourage me in a number of ways like:

Regardless of the sea of Halloween candies, cookies, cupcakes galore at work, I remained steadfast and determined I was not going to partake and get the wheel of appetite turning! ...... emoticon I am also watching the salt shaker!

Without going full bore......... I sailed through with flying colors, lost over two pounds, am wearing the pants again comfortably ........... emoticon but resolved to continue to use 'tacky' little reminders on occasion that may change from day to day ......... And of course, continue to eat many of these fresh bounties Mother Earth has provided in abundance .......... emoticon

(Many I enjoy in Green drinks and smoothies every day) ........ emoticon ..........

I think it is fun sharing our goals with one another and 'keeping in touch' as to how we are doing ......... I would love to hear as I know we all have vital tips to share ....

Sending Happy Tweets! ........ emoticon

    Love your idea of sticky notes all over the place. I actually figured out how to print them out from my printer . . . . but they are great reminders when placed in strategic 'trouble' zones.

Yea! for the comfy pants.

Absolutely keep in touch about our goals. . . . . that is another KEY to success!
because together we are stronger!!!

    Definitely a great idea! I have got to get my act together for November. Today is my re-re-restart. Going home and getting in my minimum 3o minutes of exercise to get this party started. I am going to have a good doctor's appt. in December and I'm not going to gain weight over the holidays. Those are my two big Nov. and Dec. goals - if I can make both happen, I'll be thrilled!!

    "Tacky" or not, if it works, go for it! emoticon I do the same thing around my computer desk.

A big congratulations for not succumbing to the sweets! That takes guts, and you've got it! emoticon Keep up the great work! emoticon

    Well, I must say...your idea is a little 'tacky'...but it just might do the trick! emoticon I'll have to remember it for when I need it.

Glad you did so well and are comfy in your clothes again!

I made it though the candy holiday too and gave my candy to the man across the street he works at the mission and said the me would love the candy.

my pants are a little snug too bought them that way so by Christmas they will be comfortable and a new size size 14 and when i started the journey they were size 20 like your tip of the post it note thanks for the tip. and we can make out Nov goals one step at a time. emoticon

    Good work, 2B! I like the post-it idea, except I'd have to make sure mine were all in places that my cats couldn't possibly get. They'd probably look at them like they see everything else..."Oh Boy! New Cat toys!!!".

    Awesome idea. I've moved my goal/vision board to the door of my fridge. I'm hoping it helps.

    Sounds great!
I found that turmeric and red palm oil help get rid of fat, so am incorporating them into my food now.
