Let's visualize

I recently shared some information with a client, and now I want to share it with you.
It's the power of visualizing.
I am not trying to get all new age here, but rather I am giving you a tool to reach your goals.

Her dilemma was fear about going to a baby shower over the weekend and knowing there would be sweets there...sweets she did not want to eat. I told her to visualize saying 'No thank you' when being offered a treat. That way, she would have a better chance of sticking to her goal.

I use this visualizing trick all the time for myself. Mostly, when I am thinking of tomorrow's workout, I imagine myself doing it. If tomorrow I need to do cardio, then I make a plan (say, walking on the treadmill for 30 minutes) and I imagine myself doing it. Same thing, if I need to lift weights, I'll visualize myself going through the routine.

This can work for slimming down or toning up as well. Do you want 6 pack abs....imagine yourself with 6 pack abs....Although keep in mind that goals like this need to be accompanied with visualizing yourself going to the gym and also not eating pizza.
