“The only way of finding
the limits of the possible

into the impossible.”

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
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

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.
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.
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
