I have been thinking about my goals for 2011 and have decided that a reward would be a nice addition to the whole thing.
So, if I make my 365 hours of bellydance practice AND if my body is stronger–my reward is a trip to Paris, France for the Bellyfusions workshops and show in January of 2012.
I have been wanting to go to that for years and I never do. I am going next year and the only thing that will stop me is not reaching my goals.
The biggest thing I have to watch for is getting to Thanksgiving and then saying to myself “It’s holiday time so I don’t need to exercise and I can eat junk for all meals until January 1st.” That is what I do every year. Not in those exact words; I am much more crafty. I justify it in various creative ways. However, I will not consider my body goal met if I do it this year so I must power through right to the very end!!!
Now I am ready to start on Saturday the 1st!! I am not logging anything before then but it doesn’t mean I am not doing anything. Today I went to a two-hour bellydance boot camp and I plan to exercise this week too. I am hoping this will help a little with my moment of horror (which is my plan to weigh myself on the 1st of the year and see what holiday damage has been done.) I will log that number on here. (HaHaHaHaHa). No I won’t. That number is off-limits to the world but I will know!!
