The Power of Creating a Storyboard for Your Health & Fitness Goals by Marisha Barber

The Power of Creating a Storyboard for Your Health & Fitness Goals by Marisha Barber

A few months ago I signed up for the 2011 Sketchbook Project. The Sketchbook Project (SKP) is an international project created by the Brooklyn Art Library. The library sent me a blank sketchbook; I fill up the pages with my artwork, and then send the finished sketchbook back. The completed book will then go on a nine city tour around the US ending in a permanent collection in the library.

In the beginning I could not wait to get my sketchbook in the mail as I had millions of ideas. I should be able to fill up one little sketchbook no problem! However, when my book arrived I was confronted with 80 blank pages – 80!! My ideas had to be just right. I didn’t want to waste any pages, so where do I start? I created a storyboard.

A storyboard by definition is a graphic organizer such as a series of illustrations or images displayed in sequence for the purpose of pre-visualizing, just like a comic strip you would find in the Sunday paper. The storyboard helped me work out layouts and solve any issues before I even put pencil to page.

So… what does this have to do with health and fitness? You can apply the same concept of pre-visualization to your health and weight loss!

Below are a few tips that have helped me that you can apply to your own goals:

Scheduling your workouts
Pick a time of day you know you can stick to. Make it non-negotiable.

Finding a workout buddy
You’re more likely to workout if you have someone to hold you accountable and who in turn is counting on you to hold them accountable.

Planning a menu for the week
Pick out recipes and ingredients before you go to grocery store. Never shop with an empty stomach.

Prepping your meals

Make some time to prep and even make your meals for the week.

Looking at the menu before head to the restaurant
In this day and age most restaurants have nutrition menus online.

Planting reminders around your house

Place photos in strategic places around your house. For example: a photo of a beach next to a swimsuit you want to wear would fit perfectly on your refrigerator.

Kathy Hightlights — Domestic Queen by Kathy Cobb

Kathy Hightlights — Domestic Queen by Kathy Cobb

Today I found myself running around doing the daily chores that keep a household running smoothly. I must admit that there are times I would rather not be the Domestic Queen, but rather the Lady of the Manor who hires the housekeeper.  Yet the idea of my own maid actually makes me laugh!  Don’t get me wrong. I wouldn’t mind the help, but to have a live in maid 24/7 would drive me crazy!  You see, I need the stimulation of keeping a household running smoothly.  My husband laughs at me when he comes home and once again finds the family room rearranged.  Changing table cloths brings me joy.  Preparing new dishes for my family makes me feel like a famous chef!  Many nights I insist on doing dishes because the warm water running over my hands brings peace to my soul. You should see me dance with a broom. You would be amazed how well my partner and I waltz around the room together.  As for laundry, years ago an amazing woman of God suggested that I use the folding time to pray for my family.  I call it my love chore!  So the next time you find yourself overwhelmed with your household chores, turn on the music, grab a broom and dance.  You may find that your daily chores can bring you joy if you learn to have a little bit of fun.  If this isn’t your cup a tea, hire a maid!

Nikki Highlights —- Trust Yourself & Shine by Nikki Cates-Hayes

Nikki Highlights —- Trust Yourself & Shine by Nikki Cates-Hayes

It’s simply a commonality that women find amongst themselves.  A lack of confidence.

To add a little twist to it is to acknowledge that many times we may be confident about a certain aspect of ourselves or our lives yet be totally distraught and fearful of other aspects.  I don’t think I’ve met a single woman who does not have that see saw of self confidence going on in some kind of way.  I’m here today to tell you that it’s all a trust-factor.

Whether you’re lacking the confidence about making a speech, doing an interview, writing a blog post, meeting new people, or becoming a mother the missing factor in your situation is a trust in yourself and in any help you may think you do or do not have.  Basically what I am saying is this…if you’re bubbling on the inside of your soul with a passion for a cause, an excitement about a product or service, or a love for someone or something without even thinking about it this will come out in your words, actions, and reactions.  So, in the event that you are put on the spot during an interview or you’re looking for words to share in a blog post or conversation, simply availing yourself to the opportunity of what you have brewing on the inside of yourself is what will come pouring out.

Granted, let’s remember that this is also applicable to the negative side also.  If all you have brewing within is hatred, bitterness, anger, disappointment, confusion, and all things nasty and cruel then that is what you will reveal.  No matter how much you try to hide it, it will be revealed.  This is why personal development is so crucial to success.  To confront the root of these barriers will reveal ways of healing and overcoming which in turn will leave you open to all the wonderful things that you take in through life’s experiences, your surroundings, those around you, what you read, hear, and see.

Remember, courage(doing it afraid) will kick fears butt all the way back to Timbuktu.  It simply takesyour own personal landscaping to ensure that what is on the inside of you will come out shining bright, inspiring, and motivating.  In order to shine like a diamond you must let the preparation process take place.  No matter how much dirt you put on that diamond, it will still shine beautifully, uniquely, and valuably as a carefully cut and polished diamond.

Trust in who you are and let you be revealed beyond the doubt, fear, and hesitation.  Someone out here in the world needs to see you.  It’s your call.  Choose.  Act.  Shine.

Welcoming 2011 ~ 5 Notable New Year’s Quotes

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
Bill Vaughan

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.
Author Unknown

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.
T. S. Eliot

Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.
Brooks Atkinson

We meet today
To thank Thee for the era done,
And Thee for the opening one.
John Greenleaf Whittier


It wouldn’t be New Year’s if I didn’t have regrets.
William Thomas 

— Lesson here is not to be hard on yourself for what may have or have not happened this past year. Use it to allow your light to shine & to grow into your destiny. We’re right behind you!  ~WOW Network Team
