Glance at Your Goals!

Published January 16, 2012 by sweetcraftastrophe

Morning darlings,

Hope you had an eventful but safe weekend! Since this new year has begun it’s been hard to focus on my goals and I know that I can longer blame winter break! I’m not much of a morning person until I make a pit stop to Starbucks but even before then I have completely forgotten my goals. The past year has flown by so quickly and now its a brand new year, a new page so this year I’m changing things up a bit. Instead of keeping my goals tucked away they will always be visible from now on beside my bed. This way I have no excuses not to be accountable to myself. Another idea for you visual learners like myself is to create a visualization board and yes it may sound a little cheesy but who cares?! You deserve to make the most of this and every year! I used to think they were silly and pointless but it’s actually very helpful to assign pictures to the goals you WILL accomplish.Once you create your own visual board this will help keep you motivated and excited for each day.

Day by Day

Morning gorgeous!

Happy Friday! I know there are sometimes where you don’t feel like doing anything, feel sluggish but it’s just temporary and you have to find the motivation somewhere to work out!

Remember not to get discouraged by the big picture and take each day as it comes. Don’t say “I can never have a oreo McFlurry ever again” because it’s not true and you deserve a few indulgences every once in a while. Indulgences have to be done in moderation because all your hard work is worth more than 5 minutes on your lips. Personally, it’s easier for me to focus on my fitness goals if I just think about this week and worry about the rest later. It’s a process which requires time and lots of it so don’t get frustrated right away if things aren’t going the way you want them to. You will get there as long as you just remember to take it one day at a time.
Today I’m sharing some inspirational pictures that motivate me when I feel like a slug.  You can print these out and hang them anywhere and everywhere you want so that you can achieve your goals!

Have a sweet day!
