It feels like yesterday we agonized over what catastrophe awaited us on Y2K. How did 20 years go by so quickly and I'm still working on the same darn resolutions?
This year, I'm thinking small with the hopes of big changes. Since dropping 20 pounds seems almost impossible, what if it's 5 pounds? 5 pounds is a breeze right? You could almost do that in an afternoon after hot yoga. Okay, more realistically, in a week or two.
Mantra: Hustle & Grind the small achievable goals until success!
Actually, this concept could have far reaching implications. Let's apply this philosophy to something fun, like a tropical mid-winter getaway. Instead of scrounging up $4,000 in a few months. Let's start now by saving $350 a month. This time next year, I imagine we'll gush about how amazing we look in that new swimsuit....just in time for that winter escape to Mexico!
If you actually just pictured that scene, BAM! You're practicing creative visualization.

Happy New Year and good luck in 2020!
