Creating a Breakthrough

Thank you to Keelie - I'm rising to her challenge.
She says:
I would venture to say that for most people who are trying to lose weight and get healthy right now, it's not their first rodeo. We've pretty much all been here before and we keep ending up back in the same spot. Overweight, tired, frustrated, and desperate. Why?

Not sure. But I want to challenge you to do something that might help make this the LAST time you find yourself here. I really believe that this is the last time I am going to be here and the difference this time is that I set myself up for a breakthrough early on. After that day, I knew I could do things differently than I ever had before--in all areas of my life.

The way to do this is to set a goal. Probably a physical activity goal but it doesn't have to be. Think of a goal that is totally attainable and something that can be done in the course of a day, week at the most. The quicker you reach this goal the better. Now think about this goal and simply raise it up to the next level. A level you aren't quite sure you can do. This is key!

I'm taking her challenge. Tonight, after I get home, I will grocery shop and plan out 7 days of meals and snacks. they will be bagged, ready to go. Easy to cook and plan for late nights. Just saying that scares me a little. Ok - a lot.
But I'm going to start making my shopping list and planning it out. And tonight it will be done!!
Thanks Keelie!!

Planning is so important. I'm learning that the hard way this week as I'm "wingin' it." It sucks, I need my structure!

Yep, it's the planning that does it. And a little more planning for "just in case".

After you finish your goal, you'll be surprised how relaxed and at ease you feel about it. Right now you probably don't realize how much it weighs on your mind.

Good luck and good work!
