It’s 4:10 pm on Thursday as I’m posting this week’s update. It has been rush, rush, rush all day long, which is why I’m late getting this to press. I’m determined to get it to you on time this week, though, so here we go…
MY THREE TEENY, TINY GOALS FOR LAST WEEK WERE:
1. Continue on with morning oatmeal, exercise, and paying close attention to the type of foods I’m eating and in what amounts.
2. Buy new work shoes, whether they are sale priced or not.
3. Get those Christmas “Thank You’s” in the mail.
HOW DID I DO?
Goal No. 1: Stellar!!!! I am crushing this goal and feeling pretty darn good about it. I’m doing so well with this goal, in fact, that I’m gonna increase my exercise number for this week. I have a new exercise video and I’m going to be using that this week, too. Last time I did it, my hips hurt so much!!!! That’s how you know it’s working. The burn, baby, the burn!
Goal No. 2: SCORE! I ordered my news shoes and they were already delivered. They fit snuggly, which is to be expected, but they look so much better than the old ones on my feet. Now, I’m not embarrased to go to work with my shabby office shoes. These ones gleam in the sunlight.
Speaking of sunlight, did you see that morning pillar of light today? Amazing! Here is a picture of it, for those who didn’t see it. My pillar of light to lead me to the health and wellness promise land, I call it!
Amazing, right? I wouldn’t steer you wrong!
Goal No. 3: I DID IT! I got my Thank You cards in the mail this week.
I am a super hero!!! [applause sounds through the arena]
Truth: Someone gave me a new super hero name today. It was totally unexpected. He called me, are you ready for this: SOLUTION GIRL! [tears] Can there by any super hero name more precious and beloved by an office manager.
It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? 😉
But seriously, it feels pretty good to have succeeded with all my tiny goals this week. And what’s better is that with each goal I completed, my brain registered me as a winner. It’s not about size–not with habit formation, anyway–it’s about winning. Setting teeny, tiny goals makes me a winner every time, which is why I’m doing just that.
MY THREE TEENY, TINY GOALS FOR NEXT WEEK
1 Increase daily exercise to 18 minutes.
2 Continue to meditate on a daily basis, preferably in the morning. I’ve been slipping on this one recently, so want to get it back on my list.
3 Track my sugar intake at least one day this week, more if I want, but one day for sure.
That’s it. My three goals for this week. They look pretty tiny, so I’m confident going into the week. Check in with me, if you want, and ask me about my goals and how I’m doing. I always love to hear from my readers, YOU in particular!
What three teeny, tiny goals will you set for yourself this week? Who is your go-to guy or girl
