Take the first step …
By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC
Setting goals is the first step
in turning the invisible into the visible.
~ Tony Robbins
The first step is always the hardest ~ getting out of bed, getting out the door, getting into the gym, signing up for a class, keeping the schedule and keeping the commitment. Well, those are not the first steps – first, you have to choose, set a goal, commit and then the real work begins!
When you have a goal – it is vitally important that you are committed to the realization of the target, turning the invisible into visible! And when you feel like quitting before you get started that is when the excuses begin. We all do it; we justify the reasons why we can’t do whatever we said we would do, we make excuses when we are not ready to fulfill the commitment.
If you take the time to listen to yourself, hear your self-talk, you will KNOW when you are making excuses and when you are ready to do the work? Where are you in this process?

I am working on many goals at once and some get pushed to the side but not forgotten.
Sticking to my food goals are the hardest part of the game. Even when I eat healthy, either I don’t eat enough veggies as part of my meal, or I skip mini meals and only get 2 or 3 in my day. So, I have to refocus my planning efforts – that’s the goal to work on now.
How do you feel when you don’t get enough vegetables in a meal or you skip the smaller meals? Do you get hungry faster? Are you at some point really hungry and at risk for not making healthy choices? The food ratios are designed to keep us from getting too hungry and putting us at risk for grabbing the first thing we see … that doesn’t usually work out very well
I’m doing well with my fitness goals, except when I’m sick, like now. So my fitness goal is to rest! I still need to follow through on getting my goal of hiring a p/t helper to organize my office.
i have the goals. i am falling short on my commitment to my goals. i have so many excuses lately and i feel guilty. i know i don’t feel as well as i could. we are travelling today and my plan is to get back to serious work in one week when we return home. i am trying to be realistic. while we are away i’ll be working out a detailed exercise and diet plan. it will be difficult to implement while being immersed in an amusement park setting for one week.
Debbie — I can hear ya!! Don’t over-schedule yourself — and at the amusement park, count your steps as your workout. You can always stretch before bedtime and you will be getting your exercise, gently!! Which is a bonus once in a while – enjoy your time.
