Avoid your plateau

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Vision

So, I have been reflecting this morning on how I've allowed a physical plateau in my life. I have weight to lose, but have chosen a path that has caused the loss to be stagnant. I know that it's my own fault and that I allowed it to happen... so here I am making "changes"! It's not easy!!! The new habits aren't easy to follow, but I am committed.

The thing that struck me this morning is that a plateau can happen in any avenue of life. With work, friendships, financially, whatever it may be. I'm not sure that we realize always that we have hit that spot so reflection is needed to see where we are exactly at.

Am I planning on selling thirty houses this year? What do I need to do to get there? Am I gonna leave it up to fate or work for it?

Am I planning on losing 20 pounds this year? How do I get there? Can I keep eating pizza and sitting in front of the tv?

Do I want to buy a house? Sell a house? Can I just "wish it" into existance?

The answer is that we need to move. Make a plan and move on it. Tweak it, change it, move it,... whatever it takes!

So happy plateau diving to you!

Excellent point and tell me do you feel you have plateaued with work outs?  I know that can happen and our muscles get used to doing certain things then we need to mix it up. 

Excellent blog!  Lets make it happen.  Thanks.

Karen - My excercise no. I mix it up a lot to avoid boredom. Right now I'm mixing the couch to 5k with strength and my tapes. :-) I have a good mix of light and hard days. You?

We always have to evaluate what is happening and make changes.....

The definition of insanity is:

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting something different to happen.

Thanks for reminding some of us, sis!!

Lindsey... You are one ambitious lady. I have been running a little over two years and dropped about twenty pounds but still cannot seem to adjust my intake of food.  For some reason I've now got pizza and beer on my mind....

What a great post, Lindsey!  So often we get to a place where we feel stagnant, like nothing else can come from our efforts.  However, as you said, that's the time to figure out what exactly it is that we want and how we plan to attain it.  Thanks for the timely reminder to set goals!

GO LINDSEY GO!  I am sure you can stick to it.  You've already on track.  You may want to try writing down your goals somewhere where you can see them everyday, so that you stay focused.

Tanya - Written goals don't do me any good! I write them and look at them and still forget them. ;0) I've even tried rewards and can't seem to make that work either.... It's coming though. Thanks!
