Well, it’s day 8 of being back on track and though I am definitely feeling better the scale is moving slowly… Of course, I have not exercised, I’ve eaten a few too many nuts, and have had a few too many drinks here and there… So, what do I expect?
I’m down 8 lbs, which in 8 days isn’t bad – I get that… I know I need to be patient, yet I am so impatient.
I think about exercise… the idea of doing it is great. It’s just the actual get up and go that I can’t quite get to. It’s kind of the same at work. Granted, I’ve been crazy busy the last few days, but I haven’t done much in the way of marketing. I went to a “mixer” this evening, which was ok. Actually, it sucked. I sucked. I could have been more outgoing and talked to more people, but I hung around my table and only talked to those who were near me. I want to be able to work the room without thinking twice. Someday I will, hopefully sooner than later.
There are things I know will help me in my personal life (ie. weight loss), and with my career. I just need to do them. And they’re easy, so why don’t I? Seriously, it sucks being me sometimes. LOL
- Eat healthy and drink lots of water.
- Exercise often: 5-6 days a week for 30-60 minutes.
- Reach out to clients and/or potential clients a day. I think 3 sounds like a good number. If nothing else, how about I make a point to reach out to 10 a week. This can be in the form of an email (ok), or some form of social media (ok), or by going by their office, etc, to see them personally (better – I need to get in their face so they remember me and see that I really do care and want their business).
- And of course follow-up with new and current customers. The follow-up is everything.
Just those few things alone will help… I just need to do it… It seems easy enough, so why does it seem so hard?!? 🙂
