Good post. Create a list of things that you want to accomplish. Refer to them as accomplishments rather than goals. Put them in order of importance. Work on the top 3 and as you made headway or achieve success in those, start on the next ones. Don't overburden yourself with a huge list that causes you anxiety. For instance, send out 10 resumes and eat better Monday-Friday. Indulge in a few food treats on weekends. That kinda thing.

Well, ummmm, let's see. I was to lazy to even make my list but I did get out of bed! I found my way to the coffee pot and then to the computer. I found many interesting games here so I played lots of them! Then I went to the refridgerator and got something to eat and more coffee. Played a couple of more trivias here...got more coffee. Oh yeah, grabbed a couple of chocolates and a cookie. Read my emails. Emailed and wished my friends a Happy New Year back. Back to some more trivia. Finally took the dogs out (my husband did it earlier..my turn). To cold, hurry up! They don't and I freeze. This gives you some idea what I have been like this last week. TOMORROW I will make a list!!

Here's my motivation:

tomorrow morning I will take a good look at my naked self without sucking in my stomach. I will look front and rear.

I will tell myself that as a woman of a certain age, it's highly unlikely that I am 4-6 months pregnant. And what I'm beholding is holiday indulgence (and wasn't it gooooood!).

Sigh.

Then I will go to the grocery store and buy heaping piles of fruits and vegetables and whole grains...No cheese! No baked goods! No candy, cookies, crackers, or anything other than water to drink.

And on Thursday, it's back to the gym with me to get back into the 3-4x weekly routine.

The naked truth is my motivation. Works pretty well. A bit shocking but necessary.

NO!!! PLEASE NO! Don't even suggest that I do this. Not yet. Give me a day or two. Or maybe a week or two. I will, I promise. Tonight I will sit in front of the TV and enjoy one more night of no worry about how I look. Tomorrow is soon enough. Then, I will look---sigh--and cry!!

Sergeant Greenie here...

Okay, everyone, I want everyone up and out of bed tomorrow by 7AM. Got that?

You will all have scrambled egg whites for breakfast. No crying please.

Everyone must do situps, pushups, and run or walk for 1 hour and have this done in the morning BEFORE you do anything else.

For dinner, chicken breast and steamed broccoli.

You can have black coffee in the morning but the only other liquid you will drink all day is water. Okay? Water.

No whining. No complaining. No excuses. Report back to me in the evening.

Sgt. Greenie

P.S. Oh, and one more thing. No naps. You get out of bed in the morning and you get into bed at night, that's it. Do I make myself clear?
