Well welcome to the first day of 2008. Are you going to make a resolution? Well we've talked about some smart goals in the past, but lets look at some things to keep in mind.
WRITE THEM DOWN
Most people have given up on their resolution by February because they haven't thought about it since January 1st. Write it down, reflect on it, and keep doing all you can to accomplish it.
Don't Keep Them To Your Self
Let your family and friends know what you are trying to do so they can help hold you accountable. Go over to our forums (www.logicalloss.com/forum ) and let us know your goals, and start a fitness diary.
Don't Look as Setbacks as Failures
Look kids fall down a BUNCH when they learn to walk. Learn each setback as a potential to learn some new information.
Make sure this is YOUR goal.
If you don't see the benefits of this goal, then you won't but into it. You can't do things for other people. You can try but you will stop when things get tough.
I've been listening to The Four Day Win book (by Martha Beck). It has some interesting points:
Try to "be good" and eat healthy for four days. When you do this (and you will), notice how good you feel. Pat yourself on the back, and then do it again. Four days is a long time, but it is achievable. Most people think they can go four days. Then when we do, we feel good about ourselves. This builds confidence to make it through the next four days.
I'm only about half way through the book, but its very interesting and the author throws in some sarcasm that makes it a fun read.
