After a few years I entered stage 2

Saturday, April 30, 2011

It took me awhile to read everything about the stages and figure out what it meant to be in stage 1. After finding everything about the stages I realized I've been in stage 1 a bit long....but actually I think I needed to be in stage 1 until I truely managed to make the 3 goals a habit: listen to a get up and go song, stretch for 10 minutes and eat some form of produce. I' ve been on a streak doing all 3 for a few weeks now. I don't want to quit them as goals, they are good for me. Wanting to continue my streak, I make sure I do each one, even if it's the last thing I do before going to bed. I'm nervous about moving on, I feel like I just mastered 10 minutes a day. I don't want to loose the pattern. I'm very pattern sensitive, if I keep my patterns going, I can be successful. When I break my pattern and I'm not accountable to a goal.....I can take a while to get back on track, sometimes a long while. Having those 3 items on my goals act as reminders...I guess I can add them back into goals. Change..., I open the doors to the possibilities of what gifts stage 2 has waiting for me. I'll hold on to the gifts that stage 1 has brought to my life, I can at least stretch for 10 minutes and a 'get up and go' song will change my energy. Fresh produce tastes good, it IS fast food and it feels good to my body.

    change is always scary, but you have built good habits which you will keep going into the next stage. don't let fear keep you stagnant.

    Way to go! I'm proud of the success you have found. I'm also a person who has a terrible time getting back on when I've falen off the wagon. When you are a winner and move on...it's a great victory! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh yes! Just, eventually, add another goal with what is already going.

    first. emoticon emoticon emoticon on doing so well with the first stage and your goals but they are still your streaks and you can keep them up while still adding to them.moving forward is a good thing look at it this way.when a child learns to walk then learns to run,though he has learnt to run he can still walk.so when you add to your stages you can still do the other stages along with it.you can do this and are ready to move on. emoticon emoticon emoticon
