In spirit of the blog i wrote today (March 24, 2010) I am posting my new goals here:

2010 Goals:
To run a 10k on June 20th
To do Yoga 3x a week
To go to bed by 10:30 every night
To not relapse back to drinking coffee
To drink 4 liters of water every day
To let my inhibitions go and just enjoy my tennis lessons
To spend my birthday weekend at the beach
To try a new recipe every week

And my reward? A healthy body & mind.

No material thing is going to drive me further in obtaining my goals. Im either committed to them or not. A new purse or new shoes aren't going to change my day to day actions enough to justify them. If I deserve and desire new things - chances are I will buy them anyway. So setting them as a reward for a goal I may not have met is futile.


When you know that life will still be waiting for you tomorrow--no matter what--it gives you the freedom to make today count as much as possible. "Someday" is right now. Anytime. And that can be exciting, if you let it.

Goals and Rewards
current weight 147 (sept 11 2009)

Goal weight 1 - 164 ~ reward - new Guess Purse adn wallet and shirt - Goal acheived July 3rd!

Goal weight 2 - 150 (Goal Date Sept 5) ~ reward - express redi-set-go cooker (that infomercial gets me everytime) - Goal acheived Sept 5 2009!

Goal weight 3 - 130 lbs ~ my goal weight is tricky because im currently lifting a lot of weights. My body fat weight now is 43lbs and i want to lose 15lbs of body fat - but i wont know how much muscle i will gain... so my goal weight may fall somewhere in between 130-135 lbs i think. At this point it more about my bf% then the # on the scale.

    Sara... it's soo good to see you back on here!! I knew you were on vaca, but I couldn't remember how long it was for, so I began to wonder if you left. You were pretty determined tho, so somehow I knew you didn't. I'm so sorry you broke your wrist, how aweful! I've never broken a bone, so I don't know how much that hurt, but I can sure imagine it was very bad. I hope you heal up soon!!!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. It's definitely going to take some more tears and more time, but I'm sure I'll get to a place where I can remember Jacub's good times.

    I'll be here rooting you on for those last 10 lbs... good luck!!!!
