Hey Ann, I took your questions and answer them if I was talking to me. Hope you don’t mind.
1- What are my excuses for not doing what I know I need to do?
there is not enough time or there is not enough money. I need to have a plan for this. In some rare times I also hear my inner voice saying I’m too old for that.
2- What are 5 small steps I can take in the next month to get me started?
I will make sure that my goal is attainable, and I understand the path to get to it. Brake that path into smaller/shorter milestones. Make an agreement with myself to get to the first milestone as if it was a life and death situation. Try to determine what obstacles I might face and be prepared to make them irrelevant. Do not get stuck in the planning phase.
3- How do I build momentum around my health goals?
I will celebrate on every milestone reached, so for every action I committed myself to do and achieved, I will feel great and proud. And for each time I did not fall or break the plan I will praise myself.
4- How will I measure progress at 1 month increments?
This is kind of hard, but let see if I can understand myself… If I want to measure action, 1 month is too long, I will need to measure maybe every day, and I will evaluate how much I applied myself to my goals, if I’m putting the time, if I’m being true to myself. If I’m looking to measure results, I need to make sure my goal is measurable and the actions I’m doing will take me there with time. If my monthly measure does not reflect what I was looking to get but I did the work, then maybe my path needs to be re-evaluated. Am I better that I was yesterday?
5- What is my “terrifyingly specific” goal for my health
I want to stop taking/needing Dr prescribed medication for any current health condition
