Any journey always starts with the mind. You need to direct your mind into a powerful, positive and proactive place.
Bag the toxic self-speak and replace it with endless self-support. Quit comparing yourself to every Tom, Dick, Tracy and Debbie in town. Pay attention to you. Commit to loving and supporting you.
Know the Difference between Fantasy and Reality: Got an extra 50 on board? You’re not dropping it all in 6 weeks. However, you’ll remove some excess fat and build muscle. The goal is to lay down a foundation of healthy lifestyle habits that you’ll hone and sustain for a lifetime. Be careful to establish reasonable and attainable mini-goals. Huge success is always built on the achievement of these smaller milestones.
Know Your Numbers: To monitor your accomplishments as you go along, you need some kind of measureable outcomes. This may include blood sugars, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. You can whip out a tape measure and record your tummy (across the belly button) circumference, along with hips, thighs and buttocks if you wish. Write it down as you’ll be coming back with future updates. Take a piece of clothing that you’ll fit into after removing 5-10 pounds, pull it out and keep it front and center in your closet so that it greets you every day. If the clothing is getting looser, you’re doing just great.
Develop Stress Resilience: The key to survival is the ability to adapt and adjust to life’s stresses without resorting to self-destruction. Life presents endless opportunities to adapt and adjust. So many folks get derailed when they become paralyzed when something changes in their lives. Create a New Normal and develop a strategy for surviving. Get help and support when you need it.
Reward Yourself: Every single action you do in your life is associated with some kind of reward or you wouldn’t be doing it. As you commit your 6 week plan to paper, make a list of mini-rewards that will accompany achievement of your mini-goals. It could be purchasing a cherished piece of clothing, a fun trip, or a joyful walk with your best friend. Your life’s work needs to be balanced by countless rewards.
