I’m picturing myself on a treadmill, wearing fabulous workout gear (so important), glistening with sweat, graceful, running my little heart out.  Without having an asthma attack, I should add.

I know it’s cheesy and people make fun of it, but I’m a big believer in the whole power of positive thought mumbo-jumbo.  As in, The Secret.  Picture it, and it will happen.  Like I said, cheesy, but I totally believe it.  You send positive thoughts out there, you’ll get positive things back.  You imagine yourself having success, and it’ll happen.  In my opinion, it’s the same thing as prayer, just with a different opening.  Instead of, “Dear man in the sky”, you just jump to the point.

And this is why I’m picturing myself on a treadmill.  In fabulous workout gear.  Strong, healthy, slim … and ok, tan.  Why not go for gold?  (No pun intended.)  Even though deep down, I’d much rather watch TV while eating ice cream, I’m trying to start out the week with a positive attitude and determination.  I’m going to keep telling myself how amazing I’ll feel while I’m working out, knowing that I’m moving and burning calories and building muscle.  I’m going to ignore the fact that I always leave the gym feeling so gross and sweaty, because that’s nothing a quick shower can’t fix.

Later, I’ll clean my bathroom, so I can look forward to stepping into the shower tomorrow night after I get home from my workout.  I’ll do laundry and put my comfy at home clothes away, so they’re ready to go.  I’m going to set myself up to succeed.  And maybe, I won’t even buy ice cream when I go grocery shopping later.  Maybe.

    I am a bad blog follower, but I’m catching up today and I have to say – i believe COMPLETELY in the power of goal-picturing. I think the mind is a lot more powerful than we realize, so I don’t think you’re cheesy.

    …course i’m kinda a cheesy person myself…

    I keep meaning to make a little wish board somewhere, full of pictures of things I want. An apartment in NYC, piles of money, great friends… I really need to get on that!
