Dearest Me {Healthy Habits Tuesday}

healthy-habits-250-2

Today I’m talking to myself. You can listen, er, read along, if you would like.

****************************************************************

Dear Vicki,

You’ve been at this for over a month now. You’ve mapped out your goals, plotted and planned for success, you’ve realized you need to change your inner voice, and thought about feeding your change and how to fail successfully.

And here you sit.

And there sits your bad habits, right in your lap. You might just stand a chance at getting rid of them, if you would just loosen your grip.

Let go.

Seriously.

I mean, really, what have you got to lose? Huh? You already know how much more you get done when you get up early, which, by the way, awesome job. You know how much better you feel when you don’t pig out and watch the scale climb. You KNOW this! So, come on.

Let’s do this!

Wohoo!

Oops, not ready for the “wohoo”?

Ok, let’s pump you up. Let’s get excited. You like planning, so let’s plan a little more. Give you a little checklist to check off every day. Sound good?

What?

You don’t need something else to do?

Well, aren’t you just a ray of sunshine today? Fine. Then let’s set some goals for February.

1. One serving at meals, excluding veggies, including dessert (stuff just got real).

2. Six, count ’em six, glasses of water every day.

3. Pray daily. Use the #PrayerDare cards and tweet often for accountability.

4. Move on purpose. Every. Day. Stretch, take a walk, climb stairs intentionally, exercise…what theget up off the floor…I don’t care what you do, just MOVE it.

5. Worship God daily. Count your blessings. Sing praises to your Lord. Read His Word. Find Him in everything. Invite Him into everything.

6. Write every day. The Word. Letters. Blog posts. Cards. To do lists. Prayers. Just write.

7. Stick to your routines, dang it! You like them, admit it. Or don’t, but stick with them.

8. Stay motivated. Read what you need to read. Visualize. Pin inspirational stuff. Just stick with it! You can do it! Push through the blah.

9. Take your vitamins. Seriously, dude.

Feeling better now? Ok. Time for that “wohoo”? No? Well, fine. Just do this thing.

With all my love, you (or me…or something)

************************************************************

There you have them. My February goals. Pray for me, please. I really do seem to be hitting a wall with myself internally. I need to burst through. Soon.

    I LOVE… I mean LLLLLOOOOVVVVEEEEE this post!

    It brought humor to a frustrating part of this journey, the part that the majority of us just give into. Not us, healthy habits crew! We are in it to win it, even in baby steps. Progress is progress and we will celebrate the small things.

    You will do this! Keep your chin up and keep connected.

    You have inspired me!

  2. Vicki, you have a wonderful way with words. I enjoyed reading this post and loved all the encouragement. I just printed those beautiful prayer cards and ‘liked’ the Word on FB.
    Blessing to you!
