I believe in affirmations. I believe in writing out what you want, thinking it, believing it, and being aware each day of your ability to achieve it.
If I take time to write out what I want, I am going to have a chance of reaching it. If I don't take the time to think it through, I will flop haplessly along. I have strayed from my vision and goals lately, and it shows in my results.
To wit: (who says "to wit?" ha...nerds and obnoxious dorks?)
- I will complete a 5K Warrior Dash September 22nd.
- I will go caving in an authentic, private cave that requires some physical effort (and deep breathing to overcome the claustrophobia!)
- I will go horseback riding in the mountains (I thought I was under the weight limit, but when checking it out, I am not. I will do that next year. No matter what.)
- I will touch my freaking toes.
- I will conquer the P90X Yoga X (until I lose more weight I just cannot physically get into some of those positions; there's too much "me" in the way.)
- I will reach my goal weight.
- I will have the skin removal surgery shortly thereafter.
- And I will remain physically active during this whole process....and into the future because this is who I am and how I roll.
There. Black and white. Laying the destination will help me focus with each choice on the best route to get there with the least amount of detours.
That concludes the easy part of the "To Do" list. Now.....off to start doing it.
