10 weeks of Lifestyle Action

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Mindset ~ The difference between being "interested in" or "committed to" accomplishing something! The ability to keep goals at the forefront and continue making adjustments, as necessary, to consistently make progress!
emoticon I really need to define what my long term goals are and create a plan of action to achieve them! I feel "comfortable" in mindset as of late, but there are many things I want to explore and experience!

Support ~ A layer of accountability in which people are made aware of goals and intentions! Actively acknowledging, supporting, providing feedback, suggestions and celebrating success Support is only available when you share and accept help!
emoticon I will share my goals and keep my "supporters" informed of struggles along the way so they may help motivate me in my quest for consistency!

Visualization ~ Tools used as motivation to keep daily focuses/goals within eye's sight...AND...being able to SEE yourself as a finished product.
emoticon I will surround myself with visuals of each goal I set to achieve on a weekly basis, a vision board with mid term goals as a reminder of where I WILL be!

Acceptance ~ Acknowledging that who you are at any given moment is just a stepping stone to who you are working to become!
emoticon I will accept the starting point, find success to celebrate daily and acknowledge I am a positive work in progress! Perfection is not necessary...There is no "lifestyle" finish line !

Obstacles ~ Road blocks that make you get creative...improvise, adapt and overcome!
emoticon Only a perception of any given moment, I will find ways to turn obstacles into opportunity for growth by exploring the "true" reason an obstacle presents itself! Chances are obstacles are often only a frame of mindset and excuse for lack of motivation! Easily overcome with thought, planning and determination!

Time Management ~ Committing to make yourself a priority and schedule YOU into days just as you would life's appointments!
emoticon Really need to work on this! I will enlist help and find ways to open "MY" calendar at home! Also need to make MY goals and dreams an EQUAL priority, in addition to assisting others see and reach theirs!

Beyond Comfort ~ The willingness to take on tasks that challenge you mentally, physically and emotionally!
emoticon I need to take risks and have fun instead of "playing it safe"! There's so much I want to do, but never take the time for! This will most likely be a primary focus week to week!

Stress Management ~ Finding ways to deal with unfortunate circumstances so as not to hinder creating a healthy lifestyle!
emoticonStress isn't generally an issue as I'm not easily frustrated or disappointed! When moments do arise, I will engage in physical activity to remove negative thoughts and turn focus to achievement and overcoming mental obstacles!

Rewards ~ Predetermined "gifts" to yourself for reaching a milestone or achieving a set goal! Need not be monetary in relation, but something that makes you "feel" good!
emoticon I will develop a visual and list of rewards to celebrate milestone progress along this 10 week journey!

This word exercise makes me stop and ponder what my goals are! Not just where weight loss is concerned, but from life and family as well! Routines are just so easy to fall into! A future blog may be coming with questions and answers to provide insight on how and what I wish to accomplish!

    It's wonderful that this exercise has got you thinking about the bigger picture! This journey is only one piece of our life and if we can interconnect all the pieces it all goes smoother!
