“The only way of finding
the limits of the possible
is by going beyond them
into the impossible.”

I was recently interviewed on eHealth
Radio’s Fitness,Weight Management and
Nutrition channel by host, Eric Michaels. You can find the podcast on
website under the NEWS tab.
What will you gain from listening to
this interview? The opportunity to use my words as a “Commit To Get
Fit mini tune-up” that will hopefully help get you back on track
with your weight loss and daily cardio routines – cos right about
now, I hear a lot of you are still struggling with your weight loss
and wellness plans. And you shouldn’t be . . . cos it’s not all
that difficult to lose your unhealthy, unwanted weight just like I
did – once and for all.
My eHealth interview is a little
something to help you find your way back to the road to wellness –
look at it as the “Cliff Notes” of what I cover in my Commit To
Get Fit With Laura Dion-Jones book, presentations and seminars.
And if you’re
thinking about Olympic Gold someday – it might be a stretch for you
and little too early (or late) for that, but one thing’s for sure –
in order to succeed in any weight loss and wellness plan, you have
to set clear weight loss and wellness goals and reinforce them every
And if you’ve
fallen off the wellness wagon, you need to climb back on and begin
again, right now – today.
Want to walk or run
a faster lap? Yen for a quicker step? Wanna lose 20, 40, 100 pounds
or more? Be able to walk an hour without needing a nap after?
These things could
very well happen but your first step is to define your weight loss
and wellness goals by writing them down and/or stating them out loud
to your class, friends, family, co-workers, boss, or me, your new
motivational weight loss coach. Tell someone who will remember your
intentions and remind you about them – and hold you accountable.
When you “go
public” with your goals, it’s hard to break the contract you set
up with yourself and others. It gets really embarrassing when you
don’t stick to your goal.
between a goal and a daydream is that the goal requires action to
achieve it. The daydream happens the rest of the time when we’re
sitting on the sofa, driving – or just contemplating.
Do what I did:
learn to hold yourself accountable – cos who else is there in the
end but you, really?
Write your goals
down in your fitness journal and also post them where you’ll see
them the most – fridge, freezer, bathroom mirror, on your computer
screen, dashboard – places like that.
Your next step is
to give yourself a reasonable deadline. Do like I always do for
important events, holidays, and other significant benchmarks – I
count backwards from the deadline date and set myself daily points of
reference on my calendar to keep me on track along the way.
incremental goals to motivate you as you go will help keep you on
Make everything you
do count toward your end objective of improved health, fitness,
weight loss and wellness.
When you write it
all down – your goals become your reason, your road map – the
“why” you’re doing it in the first place.
I can help you
figure out the “how” that fits in with your daily lifestyle –
but I can’t do it for you.
All I can tell
you is the only way of finding the limits of what’s possible with
regard to your weight loss and wellness is by going beyond them into
Walk, weigh and
write it all down every day. Use everything you do as motivation.
Nothing else matters if we do not have better health and fitness. How
can we help others if we cannot help ourselves?
