Decided on THE Dress! #adresstoimpress

Over the weekend I ummed and ahhed about what dress to pick for my #adresstoimpress project with Wish Want Wear and I am both pleased and panicked to say I have picked one out!

I have decided to keep my choice a surprise until the big reveal in December so I have 11 weeks to make my dream a reality!

And I bet you are thinking well how are you going to do it?

The truth is, this goal is going to be hard and it scares me a little. Don't get me wrong, I am excited and how I will feel when I get that dress on is going to be amazing, but I can't help but feel slightly dubious that I am setting myself up for a fall.

On Saturday I helped out at the Elite Performance Fitness Female Nutrition and Training Seminar and was able to listen in to all the tips and information given by the trainers from the gym, including my PT, Chris.

Chris discussed goal setting with the audience and how to go about it. One of the points that he made that encouraged me to pick the biggest challenge dress wise, was the fact that a goal *should* scare you a little. It gives you something to aim for and it shouldn't be easy, as it will push you to achieve that bit more than you might have done otherwise.

I could have picked a dress that I thought would be an easier option, but it wouldn't have been the dream dress, so I figured why not go for the best?

In terms of how I am going to get there, there's a couple of things I am going to do to make this happen;
  • Eating Clean: I know it's a simple one to follow but in terms of getting where I want to be, I need to be strict on the diet side of things and commit to not making poor food choices. I will be posting some recipes on here as I try them so keep popping back if you want to see my paleo style attempts! Tonight I will be trying to make carrot chips!
  • Stay Active: I will continue with my weekly PT session, attending 2 circuit classes and also try and do a programme in the gym on my own!
  • The Countdown/Keeping the Dress in mind: I have downloaded a countdown app and also intend to make a visual goal board that I can have up in my room. I will then see it everyday and it will reinforce my objectives! That's the idea anyway..
  • Just do it: Again - simple but effective. I am a big ideas person and often let a bright idea run away with me without thinking the practical through. I need to commit to the changes and just do it, instead of making excuses or giving it a half hearted attempt. No one else can do this for me so the responsibility lies with me to make this happen.

I'm not sure if anyone else is thinking of working towards a Christmas Party Dress type goal, but if so I would love to hear about it and share progress!

We CAN do this!
