My Saturday morning meeting is closed today due to Boxing Day, so I sent my members a video meeting talking about this week’s topic: celebrating. In the video I’ve encouraged my members to celebrate their accomplishments in the year that has passed as well as set some goals for the new year. I’ve decided to take my own advice and celebrate my accomplishments from 2009:
- I quit my job and enrolled in nutrition school
- I received 2 major awards as a Weight Watchers Leader
- I led more than 25 people to Lifetime membership and countless others achieve their goals
- I blogged 4 times as much as I did in 2008 and have increased my readership by leaps and bounds
- I performed leads in two wonderful shows (Silk Stockings & Annie)
- I performed in my first and second belly dance recitals
- I completed an 8 week Boot Camp and saw great changes in my body and felt proud of my accomplishments both mental and physical
- I did a complete overhaul of my eating and am now gluten free and vegan
- I continue to actively do everything I can to heal my body and as a result feel amazing
- I have continued to maintain my weight
- I joined a gym and actually use my membership weekly
- I raised $1,724 for my first Heel n Wheel a Thon in support of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of Canada
- I was asked to be the Honorary Chair for Toronto’s 2010 Heel n Wheel a Thon
I will be following this up with a list of goals for 2010 early next week. This list covers a lot of the big stuff and I have to say it feels wonderful to look back at everything that has happened in 2009. I’ve had a lot of fun with friends (old and new) as well as getting to know so many more people through this blog. Thank you for your continued readership and enthusiasm!! 2010 is going to be a year of change for me, and I’m truly looking forward to everything coming my way.
I now encourage all of you to look back on 2009 and celebrate your accomplishments: big, small and everything in between!
Give yourself the credit you deserve and spend some time truly celebrating. Don’t make it about the things you wished you did or things you didn’t do. What’s done is done. I know that each of you have done some remarkable things this year, and now is the time to be proud of yourself. Reflecting on your accomplishments can be incredibly motivating and can be a great source of inspiration when the negative thoughts start to creep in. Positivity is contagious!!
What accomplishments are you celebrating from 2009?
