    “The only way of finding
    the limits of the possible
    is by going beyond them
    into the impossible.”
    Arthur C. Clarke
    (British
    science fiction author, inventor, and futurist,
    famous
    for his short stories and novels, among them
    2001:
    A Space Odyssey)

    I was recently interviewed on eHealth
    Radio’s Fitness,Weight Management and
    Nutrition channels by host, Eric Michaels. You can find the podcast
    on my commit-fit.com website under the NEWS tab.

                 The benefit you’ll gain from
    listening is the opportunity to use my words as a “C2GF mini
    tune-up” that will 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 New Year’s weight loss and wellness
    resolutions.
                So, my interview is a little something
    to help you find your way back on 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 seminars.
    And if you’re
    thinking about Olympic Gold – it might be a stretch for you and
    little too early for that, but you do need to set clear weight loss
    and wellness goals and reinforce them every day. And you need to
    begin again, right now, today.
    Want to walk or run
    a faster lap? Yen for a quicker step? Lose 20 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 a class, friends, family or co-workers. 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.
    The difference
    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 – and just contemplating.
    And, 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 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.
    Creating smaller,
    incremental goals to motivate you as you go will help keep you on
    track.
    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.
    It’s up to you to
    figure out the “how” that fits in with your daily lifestyle. I
    can help you with this – 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
    the impossible.
    Now, go listen to
    my eHealth radio podcast for that blast of positive motivational
    support you need right about now . . .

    Yours in terrific health,
