Rededicating to keep our attitudes going...

  • Last night I posted this in the "Ok, I'm in", thread but through a nudge from Susan we both think it deserves it's own thread to rededicating ourselves, specially the Featherweights, to keep it going mentally... Because at times it's not just all about food and exercise...

    Quote: Well isn't this nice "The Dig Our Heals In", love it!!

    This week I have also started to dig my heals in by re-reading the Burn the Fat feed the Muslce by Tom Venuto an e-book that I haven't read in a couple of years. It's a very motivating book and I find his program makes sense to me...

    In the first chapters he talks about goal setting and to put your goals in the form of affimations on a sheet of paper or cards and to read them daily and often. Your affirmations must be in the present tense because to your subconscious mind there is no future only the present... which really feels strange but I kinda like it. Then thirdly your goals must be in terms of the positive...

    So here are my positive and affirmative goals:

    1. I am happy and thankful that I can run a 10k in 60 minutes.

    2. I am happy and grateful that I weight 135.

    3. I am happy and grateful that I run 4 times/week

    4. I am happy and grateful that I go to the gym 4 times/week

    5. I am happy and grateful that I swim 2 times/week

    6. I am happy and grateful that I am strong and lift heavy.

    7. I am happy and grateful that I eat only unprocessed and healthy foods.

    8. I am happy and grateful that I eat 5 meals/day

    9. I am happy and grateful that I eat between 1300 and 1400 calories per day
