Feb 28, 2013 – BYE, BYE FEBRUARY!

February 28, 2013

Wow, in a flash it’s a new month!  That’s why everyday should be productive and goal-oriented.

It’s DAY 4 for all you challengers…

You may at one time or another start to hear a little voice inside your head.  It might start nagging you after dinner, telling you how badly you want that sweet dessert.  BUT LET ME ASK YOU THIS, HOW BAD DO YOU WANT TO FEEL ACCOMPLISHED?  HOW BAD DO YOU WANT TO TELL YOURSELF, “DAMMIT, I SAID I WAS GOING TO DO IT, AND I DID IT!”?

Ladies, I promise you that nothing tastes as good as feeling fit, confident and sexy!  Again, all that comes from within, as a result of achieving a goal.  This goal is not easy….and that’s why it’s WORTH IT!

One thing I do when I am feeling desperate to cheat, is that I remind myself that the piece of chocolate or the bowl of ice cream will be around all the time – it won’t go anywhere or disappear.  I convince myself that “I can always have it another time” and I can, and I will, just not right now!

Also, if you have a big sweet tooth like me, it helps to chew a piece of gum or suck on some peppermint.  I also try brushing my teeth right away.  For mid-afternoon cravings, I drink tea or coffee.

Although it won’t be an easy 12 weeks, I am super excited to be doing the challenge with all you girls, and I can’t wait to see the results!  Good luck everyone, and let’s keep our eyes on the prize!!  YOU MUST KEEP REMINDING YOURSELF OF WHAT YOU WILL ACHIEVE AT THE END OF THIS!

Check out this cool visual….where do you see yourself now?  in 12 weeks?  in 6 months?  ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!
