Change Your Mindset – Set Some Goals!
Change your thinking and change your body! A powerful part of working on your weight loss is a simple mindset task, that as cliché as it may be, is goal setting!
We all know it, but don’t always apply the knowledge and that is to achieve anything worthwhile in life you need to set a goal and go for it!
Goal setting is a huge part of my B-Fit B-Fabulous 21 day Weight Loss plan, setting you up for a flying start for longer-term results.
Setting Goals Task
For this you will need to set your short (4 weeks) & mid-term (12 weeks) goals
Rule No.1 for goal setting: You need to be SMART!
An example of a SMART short-term goal statement might be:
“It is now 2nd May 2015, bank holiday weekend! I have a lovely weekend of socialising planned and I look and feel amazing in my summery outfit. I feel so confident now wearing my strappy top and my black skinny jeans. I have lost a dress size and am now wearing size 12 just like I used to 5 years ago!”
Create your own short term goal and in a notebook write it down. It is four weeks from now. How do you feel? What has changed?
Write your goal setting statement clearly defining how you want to look and feel on a given date. Include how you feel about yourself and write it as if it has already happened. The brain doesn’t know the difference between what is real and imagined so if you can flood the subconscious brain with messages that you have already achieved the goal. If every cell in your body believes, it will naturally manifest
Now, for the next four weeks, re-write this goal in your journal every morning!
This bit is the best bit!
What will you do after those four weeks to reward yourself? Will it be a nice relaxing massage? A new wardrobe of clothes? A little weekend away? A spa day?
Decide now. What will you do to treat and reward yourself at the end of that four week period? This is really important as you need something to aim for, something to look forward to and work towards. You deserve it!
Mid to long term goals task
Your mid to long-term goal can be more general, but still very visual. Once your short-term goal has been achieved, you can then focus on your mid to long term goal and set it as a SMART goal. For now, write your mid to long- term goal as a Thank You note – again setting the intention that this is already a reality, for example:
“Thank you for my amazing body that looks, moves and feels exactly as I want – healthy, fit and fabulous!”
Once again write this down in your journal every morning underneath your short-term goal statement. Repeat all journal entries on a new page every day – this repetition will cement these messages into your subconscious.
With your mind set on what you are going to achieve the task in hand becomes much easier and enjoyable. I do these exercises with all of my clients and it is so incredibly powerful.
