Someone said, not sure who - when I googled it, nothing came up - that writing your goals down may not be enough. If you want to succeed, you must make a public declaration. I agree. The truth is, we all fail to keep promises and have lied to ourselves more times than we care to count. I am no exception, especially when it comes to the things close to home, personal things, like dieting and exercising. So, starting today, I am making a PUBLIC DECLARATION that for the remainder of January, I will lose 5 lbs. I will continue to do so every month (5lbs) until I reach my desirable weight. I will also exercise 3 times a week. Given this is a Public Declaration, I will upload a video on YouTube! NOT OF ME EXERCISING! That would be more painful for you than me - to check in with you guys, so you know I'm keeping up with my promises and all. I weighed myself this morning, and in an envelope, I wrote the number in pounds and kilograms. I am not ready to reveal my number yet. However, at the end of each month, I will weigh and record my new weight, and by the end of June, I will open the envelope, and we shall all clap 👏 to my success!!! Yay! - 👏 👏 yes, like that.
Now, I know some of you think 5 lbs per month is nothing, but I assure you, as someone who tried and failed many times in this area, it is harder than it sounds, at least for me. It will encompass significant changes in my eating habits, and that's what I want.
Anyway, I already did my daily workout and made an introductory video of this event. It will be uploaded to YouTube later on today - when my daughter shows me how, lol.
As always, it is lovely to have you in my life. If you read my last blog, you can see, I have taken my advice and included exercise in my routine. C'mon, let's get healthier together. You can cheer me on 👍, or better; you can join me 🤝. Let me know how it goes through my Contact page.
Until then, stay in and stay safe. 😊
