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.
