When was the last time you did something that gave you so much JOY that you lost track of time?

The goal is to be present in all you do.

Are you celebrating yet? What are you waiting for?
Look for reasons to celebrate your success and don’t dwell on setbacks. Every goal is made up of steps. You should be proud every day that you stay on your path, or when you get back on track after a bad day/meal/decision. Set mini-goals along your path and reward yourself when you meet them.

When we START toward a goal, excitement makes it easy to stay motivated. We are all in. We tackle every new task with energy and enthusiasm, determined to achieve our vision.
Once the ‘new’ wears off, the work begins. Discipline is not a dirty word. Discipline is what it takes to STAY motivated through the middle.
The MIDDLE is where we develop habits that will make our new goal a way of life.
Self-control...one part of fruit of the spirit that is needed to practiced DAILY to reach and MAINTAIN goals.

Your morning sets the tone for your whole day. If you sleep until the last moment, skip breakfast and rush around until you run out the door, your are not setting yourself up for success.
Reading a devotional or something motivational sets your mind in a positive direction. Planning your food for the day keeps you from making poor meal choices when you are busy, hungry and tired. Eating a healthy, high protein/healthy fat breakfast keeps you satisfied and focused until lunch.
How do you start your day?
4 weeks down.
4 weeks to go to achieve your 8 weeks goals.
Pastor Kyle Idleman (and Winston Churchill) say Never, Never, Never, GIVE UP.
This is a good time to reevaluate. Are you on your way to meeting your goal? Do you need to make a new goal because the first one is already met? Start Week 5 with the same enthusiasm and energy you had at Week 1!
Restate your Week 1 goal or a new one. Frame as if already achieved...ex I am healthy and alive at 135, even if you are currently 145.
