A while ago, I met my friend, Teri for tea. She shared the details of her experience at a wellness spa in Palm Springs, which included a diet of primarily fresh expressed juice. Looking at Teri’s clear eyes and radiant skin-I knew there was something to this “juicing’ thing.
I did my online research, and “voila,” a few days later, I was the proud owner of an expensive, gigantic juice machine!
I juiced just about every fruit or vegetable you could think of. I made all sorts of Juice Elixers-offering my freshly concocted and healthy green and purple drinks to family and friends. (Hmmm, somehow they weren’t as excited as I was!)
I admit I can fall into the trap of overachieving- I got excited and carried away about the idea of juicing.
I thought to myself, this is fantastic and healthy- so…I decided to juice every day.
Well, as you can imagine… the honeymoon phase with my juicer lasted about a month. Then my juice habit trickled down to once a week, then not at all.
What happened to the goal I was so excited about?
It fizzled because I “super-sized” my goal. In other words, I went overboard with what was reasonable and doable.
Have yu ever done that? I know it wasn’t the first time I had overshot my goal.
I think we all have!
Here’s the solution:
To achieve your big, important goals, be smart and create a doable and sustainable plan….
A plan that makes sense for you.
A plan that can be integrated into your daily and weekly routines.
The quickest and easiest way to add your new action is to “habit-stack” and do it right after one of your firmly established habits (e.g. brushing your teeth).
When you tweak your approach and design your failsafe plan, I promise you will be amazed and feel great about what you accomplish.
I hope my Juicer Aha Moment (discovering that juicing was not a realistic and reasonable goal for me) motivates you to set more achievable goals.
How’s my Juicing situation now?
I juice 3-4 times a week. I make double batches when I do, and when I am time-crunched, I skip it that day or buy a bottle of juice. It’s easy. This is much more doable and allows me to stay true to my goal and experience the health benefits. Goal accomplished!
How about you?
