My Ironclad Promise to Me

Saturday, August 09, 2014

So I’ve now come to understand that while I break my neck to keep promises I make to other people, keeping promises to myself hasn’t been a priority. I REALLY have to make myself my priority if I’m going to achieve real, permanent transformation in my life. The theory here is to start making a few tiny, simple promises to myself, that I will not break for any reason….this is supposed to make me believe in my ability to transform my “body and my life”, and “psych myself up to do this!” www.chrispowell.com

I am going to set 3 promises in each of 3 categories. This is going to be tiny, so try not to giggle at me too much. (Thank you!!)

My Food Promises:
1. I will eat 1 veggie a day.
2. I will choose 1% milk over whole milk.
3. I will set an alarm to remind me to eat every 3 hours.
My Body Promises:
1. Exercise for 5 minutes a day.
2. Go to bed 15 minutes earlier at night.
3. Take a multivitamin every day.
My Mind Promises:
1. Look in the mirror every day and say “I am worth it.”
2. Get dressed every day.
3. Pay attention to the way I feel.

I’m shuffling on my way here. In time I hope to be running and skipping. So far the eating is going fine. I will get there this time. I have no doubt. I believe in me!! I appreciate all of the support I’m getting for this! You guys rock!

Til later, Charlene

    Small is good! Just remember to be nice to yourself if you slip up! It happens to all of us sooner or later! Pick yourself up IMMEDIATELY!!! Don't be an "all-or-nothing" type person. (I'm speaking to myself as much as anyone!!)
