Both literally & figuratively…I’m REALLY bad at self-discipline. That is the ‘character word of the month’ for the boys’ school…SELF-DISCIPLINE. I really need to lead by example…maybe I should email the guidance teacher and ask her to send me her curriculum on this topic…surely I could make something intended for a first grader work. I am so bad at this on so many levels…it is really what all of the issues I have with house keeping, fitness, & diet boil down to. I can effectively talk myself out of most any task. I don’t like self-help books, or Dr. Phil…so I’m gonna have to figure this one out on my own.
I am motivated by results…so maybe focusing on one small area is the way to go. Maybe my BFF will be my ‘workout buddy’…maybe we can get together, make a list of what we want to accomplish & ask each other about our progress during our daily chats. Maybe I need a big board to hang in my laundry room that has my goals on it, so I can check them off.
What motivates you? If anyone out there has suggestions on how I can do this…PLEASE comment with your suggestions!
Today’s secret revealed…I need a reward system for my goals, like those jeans I’ve been wanting for 2 years…if I can get down to say a 27, then I get to buy them. I need to think of a reward for house keeping efforts…
