Everything is a choice!

You choose to watch TV instead of walking, or to de-stress by eating instead of talking to someone. Before you act, stop and ask yourself if this "solution" will really help you in long run.

Make yourself a priority!

You do a lot for others, but tend to neglect yourself. Give yourself the care, attention and love that you need. Your goals are important and you deserve to take time for yourself each day in order to achieve them.

***Couldn’t have said it better myself!

Find a goal buddy!

While your support group should still be in a place, a person who is striving for the same goal can offer greater support, inspiration and accountability. He’ll count on you just as you count on him.

On a calendar or spreadsheet, place a BIG sticker, star or checkmark on every day that you met your goals or took positive action steps. Over time, your calendar will become a visual reminder of your progress toward that long-term goal. It will also remind you that the occasional bad day doesn’t have a major effect in the long-run.

Write about your Motivation in your Journal!

There are many reasons you chose your goals-better health, self-esteem, or happiness. Put all these reasons on paper and read them when you need motivation.

Avoid saboteurs!

People will try to persuade you to go against your plan, whether they feel guilty themselves or jealous of you. Ignore them. Share your goals with positive people and stay away from these topics around the negative ones.

You’re Halfway There!

Today, look back on your progress and reevaluate your goals. Are you on track with your timeline? Is your goal still important? Are you motivated? Make changes to your goals, if necessary, to keep the momentum going strong!

Don’t Expect Perfection!

You will mess up, make mistakes, and forget along the way. The key is persistence and a willingness to learn from your mistakes. Focus on what you have done right instead of dwelling on the negative!

*** So true – learn from the past and keep looking forward!

Start a Journal!

This can be a simple notebook or a computer document. Use it to track your progress, record your successes and learn from your mistakes. When you have a bad day, use it to remember why you chose these goals and how far you’ve come!

Enlist a Diverse Support System Instead of Just One Buddy!

These people should be encouraging or knowledgeable in helpful ways, whether swapping healthy recipes, exercising with enthusiasm, or sharing weight loss tips!

**And that’s what we’re all doing here – and it’s fantastic!

Share Your Goals With Family and Friends for Invaluable Support and Assurance!

Confiding in them is a powerful motivator for helping you remain consistent and persistent. Some may be willing to modify their own lives to help you giving up soda or watching the kids while you hit the gym, for example.

Make a Realistic Timeline to Stay on Track!

Deadlines turn wishes into goals. Given yourself adequate time to complete each action step and chose a date when you hope to reach your overall goal. If you haven’t started working on your goals yet, today is the day!

Develop an Action Plan for Every Goal!

For example, a healthy eating resolution may involve: learning more about good nutrition, visiting a dietitian, finding ways to adapt your recipes, buying containers to pack lunches, learning how to prepare new foods, and planning extra time for shopping and cooking. Don’t overwhelm yourself with every action step at once, but focus on a few things each day.

Post your written goals in places where you’ll see them often – on your fridge, in a picture frame on your desk, as a bookmark, and in your wallet. These reminders will help you stay focused and on track!

**Love this one too! Reminders of our goals – what we “see” is so often what “we” will think and follow through on!

Are your goals specific and positive? Rather than vowing “to exercise” for example, reword each goal so that it is clear and measurable: I WILL walk 30 minutes every day. I WILL complete a 5K race. I WILL do a yoga DVD twice a week

Happy New Year!
If you haven’t yet settled on your top goals for the year, do so today! Writing down your goals (in specific terms) means you’re more likely to achieve them!

** Good one-love it!
