IOWL #3. Guided Journey to Dream the Body of Your Dreams
This week's podcast builds more on the dreaming aspect of the journey(those towards motivators) Renee uses Walt Disney’s strategy for his success in the movie industry…Dreaming Then she shows the listener how to incorporate this process in order to turn your dreams into reality
Synopsis of steps
1. Dream your dream (create a comfortable environment for dreaming)
2. Make a plan from the dream to put into reality (plan/goals)
3. Allow criticism (to provide insight to things that had not been considered or things you ar ein denial about)
4. Go back to the dream and use the criticism given to assist you in resolving issues that the critic has brought to your mind
Both the dreamer and the critic are important and they both exist in your mind but they cannot operate at the same time. You have to turn the volume down on the critic while you are dreaming or you will never get anywhere.
Personally this has always been a place of struggle and after listening to this podcast I realize that my critic voice is always screaming and the dreamer was dormant. Probably paralyzed from all the screaming.
So what is my dream
I want to be sexier in my 50's!!! I want to be at a weight that I feel good at. Right now I think that will be around 130-135 pounds. I want to be fit and healthy. I want to be able to shop comfortably in the single digit sizes. I have a nice proportioned body with the trimmest arms that I can get and a stomach that does not meet my boobs. I have this fierce body because I have a exercise plan that is fun and flexible and not OVERLY time consuming. But the main thing is that I enjoy doing this exercise. My body is not only fit but flexible I don’t have joint pains because I have taken off the weight and I move my body on a regular basis. I have come to this place because my mind body and spirit are connected. I make food choices that support my health but I am not so rigid that I do not enjoy my food. My friends and family look at me like WOW!!!! (some will have other adjectives “wink”)
I feel vibrant, joyful and free…..
I will attend my hip hop exercise class 2-3 x/wk
Find a yoga class to attend 1-2x/wk
Make a new recipe 3x /month
Focus more on HEALTH and less on WEIGHT
Decrease computer time in order to make the above a reality
Stay connected to friends and socialize more
Rededicate time for spiritual practices
OK the critic can come out
You don’t have the time to do all of these things on a regular basis.
You get tired of planning meals, exercise, getting up super early
You don’t have the clothes to socialize and money is tight
The intentions are admirable but you have not been able to keep it up
Sounds a little rigid and like you are taking on a lot at once
The above statements are true. So with that in mind I will focus on one thing for a month. Still keeping the other things in my mind and doing them as I can but committing to ONE THING
With that said the thing I will tackle first is my computer time
Week 1: Monday-Friday: 1hr per night. But not 30 min before bedtime
Decrease by 5 min/week until you are down to 30 min.
During the time that is saved will be used for other productive activity: Your choice
Weekends: Balance between chores and other activities. (for now)
I am already sweating! Better enjoy this weekend LOL personallifemedia.com/podcasts/216-inside-
