Yep, I know it’s kind of hard to see, but that’s my living room mirror. Yes, it has my goals for the Whole Life Challenge on one side, Ali’s goals for the challenge on the other side, our keys to success in the middle, and then 7 nights of dinners planned below. Yes, we’re dorks, but highly motivated ones at that.
But on behalf of dorks everywhere we’ve swallowed our pride, let our intentions for the next two months be known to each other, asked each other for accountability and support and have made the solid decision that we can either plan like crazy and experience a level of health and well being that has yet to be reached by either of us, or we can try to wing it and most likely not get much out of the next 80 days.
This is the kicker gang, the time is going to pass whether your jump in both feet or not. Unless the Mayans were off by two and half months, Sept 15th 2012 will happen. How you feel on that day, what you’ve learned about yourself by that day, and the experience that you have as human being from that day forth are all up to you.
Every Sunday morning, we’re going to erase the menu on the bottom and rewrite it. Then we’re heading to the Farmer’s Market, Trader Joes, and Whole Foods to stock up. We’re buying in bulk, freezing meat we’re not eating, putting veggies into separate baggies, and being as anal retentive as possible. Eric and Marcela are doing the same exact thing.
The keys to the kingdom for this challenge lie square on your ability to plan, plan and plan some more – if possible, do so with someone else in the mix. Use every trick that you know of and some that are unfamiliar to elicit change in your life, there’s never been a better opportunity than now.
Have a planning method that’s been particularly helpful so far? Please post to comments.
