7 Steps to Life Success...GREAT Article from Women's Health Magazie

I read this in my Women's Health Magazine that came last night and these really hit home for me and thought I would share with you! These are Tips from Jillian Michaels

1. DEFINE YOUR GOAL  "You have to know exactly what you're going after before you go after it" Jilliam says. Be specific. It shouldnt be " I want to lose weight" it should be " I want to be a size 6" Write it down and post it for inspiration all over your house.

2 BELIEVE IN YOUR ABILITY "A lot of times, people don't truly Believe that they can run five miles or that they are capable of losing weight"she says. Banish feelings of regret and guilt. Instead take that energy and redirect it toward a positive transformation.

3 STAY POSITIVE  jillian cited a recent Nike Ad in which a woman take a dreaded physical trait "I have thunder thighs" and celebrates it. "The minute you turn around to bash yourself, reverse it and give yourself a compliment" she says. Readjusting self-flagellation inspires you to "Create experiences that allow you to believe in yourself"

4 IMAGINE YOUR GOAL "Visualization allows you to get comfortable with the possibility of change" If it's a house you want; what does it look like? How does it feel to walk through those hallways?"

5 GET EDUCATED "The reason so many people fail at weigh loss is because they don't know what they're doing" she syas. Studying up beforehand helps you "make powerful choices that effect change"

6 DON'T FEAR FAILURE "It is an intergral pard of success"Jillian says " It is part of the process and a way to learn and grow wiser."

7 GET FEEDBACK  Don't be afraid of receiving constructive criticism-seek it out. Look for someone who's educated in the goal you're trying to achieve

I need to keep rereading this article and let it sink in!!!!

  8. Ok. I just got done reading your blog from beginning to end and it is very inspiring. You kicked butt on following the rules and being strict the majority of the time. I eat the Atkins bars but I think I might try out the Zone bars you talked about in one of your posts. Do you still eat them? I prefer that for breakfast. I don't like to eat in the mornings.
