“He’s making a list, and checking it twice; gonna find out who’s naughty and nice. Santa Claus is coming to town.”
Santa isn’t the only one making a list. This is the time of year where most of us are putting together lists.
It could be a list of names and addresses for sending out Christmas cards. It might be a list of gifts to buy. Or it could be a list of all that you need to do in order to get the home ready for family and friends.
Some of our lists are “wish lists.” I have a running one on my Amazon account.
How about creating a fitness wish list? What is an area of your body that needs improvement? Is there a certain dress you want to fit in? Maybe there is an upcoming celebration that you want to get physically ready for, such as a wedding.
It could be a sport you want to join in the spring. Or you might have been considering a Zumba class for the past year.
By creating a fitness wish list, you can start to pinpoint those things you would like to do or see changed. But then you need to take the next step.
You start working off the list, crossing things off. Maybe you begin with the most difficult thing, so you can feel like you really accomplished something.
For others it might be easier to start small. It’s really up to you how the list gets shaved. But that is the real point. The list should begin to shrink.
The thing about wish lists is that you can include things that are doable and those that are reaching pretty high. Remember…it’s a wish list. So you can wish to have the same body as you did back in high school. Doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. But there’s nothing wrong with a little dreaming, right?
