On New Year's Day, while waiting for 2013 to arrive, I watched the movie "We Bought A Zoo" with my daughter and husband.  The movie is an inspiring story about Benjamin Mee.  Benjamin has lost his wife. In a bid to start his life over, he purchases a large house that has a zoo. This is welcome news for his daughter, but his son is not happy about it. The zoo is need of renovation and Benjamin sets about the work with the head keeper, Kelly, and the rest of the zoo staff. But, the zoo soon runs into financial trouble.

Why?  Such a simple question that can uncover so much.  In sales, we're taught to ask why 5 times to uncover the real reason behind something.  As a trainer, I find why to also be an important question to ask when my clients state a goal they'd like to achieve.  Why that goal?  Why is that number/event important?  Why that exercise program?  Why that number of calories?  Why?  Why?  Why?

My 4 year old daughter loves to point out that "the sun is setting in the western sky," just like in the book Goodnight Cowgirl. A few of my blog times have been interrupted as I have had an opportunity to teach, "no Zoe, the sun is rising, in the eastern sky." Day 5 went well and ended the challenge. But fear not. This is only because, as is common for most people, SUCCESS BREEDS SUCCESS. When we experience (feel, believe, witness) success, it motivates us to want more. Yes, I had embarked on a 10-day challenge, I have now turned it in to a 28 plus 5 day challenge.

Ok, I know weight loss is one of our first thoughts when wanting to become healthier, and it’s often times an overwhelming daily pressure, but with 2013 being a month away, I wanted to take a moment and share a different perspective that may help you to set better goals for yourself.

As we wind up this past year (check your calendar, it’s almost over), we can take a look back at what we set out to do.Did you know that in 2012 over 60% of Americans made the resolution to loose weight? Over 30% said they were going to exercise more. Another statistic is that about 35% of these resolutions were broken by January 7th! Why to we struggle so much with these goals? Well, there actually are answers…There are 5 stages to making a lifestyle change:

Consider the accuracy of an unmanned space rocket when traveling to a specific destination; it is not accomplished by staying on a predetermined path or by getting back on that path if it strays off course. No effort is made to return the rocket to its original path, but instead a control center determines “where is it now, what is its current velocity?” Corrections are made to direct the rocket on its new path and the process is repeated multiple times over on its way to its destination.
