So today I am sitting here writing and I am wearing a pair of jeans that a month ago did not fit me. Now I actually have room in them. Hard work and persistance is finally paying off. I am about to finish my 9th month straight of bootcamp. Never in my life did I think I would be the girl getting up at 5:30 am to exercise. Perhaps I should have. Because, it works for me. Sure you have to have the discipline but instead of spending all day talking myself out of exercising after work, etc.. We all do it. Find a million and one excuses. All I have to do is get out of bed. How do I motivate myself to do that? I want to be able to fit in said jeans. Small goal, manageable goal. For months nothing happened. Then I really modified my diet, and I set a small goal. Fit into a pair of jeans that have not seen the light of day in over a year. Happy to say, goal 1 acheieved. My next goal, fit into a dress. My girlfriend Michele and I were talking about a red dress. She wants to take some photos, and wanted a long red dress. I have one. I have not worn it for along time. It's a Ralph Lauren that I purchased and wore for a wedding about 5 years ago. The last wedding we went to I tried to fit in it. No good, no way. So my next goal is to fit into that dress so I can be Michele's model. I've always been a goal setter. Not for unreachable goals, but for attainable ones. Do you set goals?
