I can’t believe my appetite yesterday. I ate a late breakfast and here it is almost 3:30 in the afternoon and I am hungry again. Since I don’t get the option to eat in silence at home very often, I figured I would make myself a Weight Watchers Smart Ones Mini Rigatoni with Vodka Cream Sauce. I’ve been doing all my reviews as videos and publishing some of them to Youtube, however with the introduction of Periscope, I’ve jumped aboard and thought it might be fun to review my meal with a live audience to answer any questions they might have.
Disclosure: I was not given anything in exchange of this review. All opinions expressed in this review are solely my own.
Yesterday I watched a Periscope video from Purely Twins that was a weekly motivational video. They had one thing that they wanted people to take away from their video and it was the positive affirmation of “I am…”. Right away it got my hooked! I am always looking for way to remind myself that the little hiccups in life are temporary and that there is always a workaround.
In case you haven’t heard about Purely Twins, they are fraternal twin sisters, Lori and Michelle, that talk about family, fitness, and healthy living. They love inspiring people in every way possible. I catch them on Periscope as often as possible, because it’s a great way for me to interact with them in real time, while getting some great advice.
How Are You?
Using the “I Am” statement sets your goals in motion, all ready for you to take charge and make them happen. When you say “I should”, “I would like to”, “I can” your insinuating that you could achieve something, buuuut there’s a good chance it’s not going to happen because there is some hesitation in the back of your head. Changing the way you say something by those two words encourages force, drive, will and most importantly commitment.
For the month of September I am going to focus on using “I am”. <– See what I did there. So I am going to list a few “I am” statements to get my month in motion.
- I am going to start a 30-day menu plan.
- I am going to have more whole grains and fiber at dinner time to fill my family.
- I am going to blog at least 3 days a week.
- I am going to drink a minimum of 48 ounces of water a day.
When I put it into perspective, most of the things I am doing need closer monitoring which leads to tighter accountability. If I choose not to make a 30-day menu plan, my family is going to ask what’s for dinner. If you click here, you’ll understand why! My family will be hungry after dinner. And I won’t be blogging as much as I’d like.
After all, we are taught actions have consequences. If I am setting myself up for success, then failure is not an option.
As long as I am trying, I will succeed.
