Thank you so much to everyone who commented on Ed and our videos and our blog's.
I am excited to share that I have lost 5 pounds since June 1st. and down 1% Body fat.
Over this past week I have been really think about what I have accomplished in my life. I never really thought about that so much, at least I have not ever written it down so that I could see it. Our Coach had asked me to focus on that this week and then really think about what it is I want to accomplish Like how much weight loss and how it will feel, to measurements and taking close up pictures.
I spent some time thinking about the end in mind and then writing out what it would take to accomplish this. Example:
Workout 5-6 day a week
Cardio 40 mins a day
Weight days 3 days a week
Walking at night with family
5-6 Mini Meals
Water 6-8 cups a day
WLX x2 1/2 hour before I eat main meals (Helps me to not over eat)
Meal plans for the week. Done on a Sunday
I spent some time thinking about how I would feel when I have lost the weight and what kind of clothes I would wear to what kind of energy would I have. I am focusing on how I feel and how my clothes fit rather than on the scale as much this time.
My biggest challenge has been the weekends. I have been having a few coolers and Natcho chips sometimes Ice Cream. I have planned to eat good on the weekends but I slip up. I find it helps to Journal when that come up. I ask question like:
1. Why do I want this food?
2. What feeling are going on inside me? (am I stressed, Worried, Tired, Board, Upset etc)
3. Will eating this food help me in my journey?
I find going for a walk really helps by overcoming a lot of these challenges.
This week I am focusing on my workouts and drinking enough water and journaling and getting reconnected with the group from http://www.transformation.com/ and starting to do more videos.
And of course the most important is the affirmations. I have many written out on little cards that I carry around with me, I try to say them in front of a mirror and strange as that sounds, it really works. Yesterday I started listening to Affirmations on Cd's that Ed and I bought from T Harv Eker. So I am always feeding my brain positive information.
I have been using Louise L Hay "Heal your Life" affirmations and workbook. If you have a chance watch the movie "you can heal your life" It's on http://www.youtube.com/ and you can purchase it and Chapters/indigo Amazon etc.
Here is our update video for this past week. Check it out...
Well Here is to another great week.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
