    Thank you both, and so glad to have inspired someone. I do have long term goals AlHoover81, but since it's one step at a time these short term goals will help me get there and keep me focused since others may seem so far away.

    I need to do goal setting for myself. I like how you are doing monthly goals, instead of long term ones. Keep up the good work

When Does A Goal Become A Habit

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

I wonder what everyone's experience on this is? When do you consider a goal and habit and change it to something new.
For example, one of my goals was to drink 8+ glasses of water a day. I've been drinking 10+ for over 21 days.
Do you now consider that a habit and change your goal? Thoughts?

    I think most new things don't truly become a habit until 30+ days... At least for me. I'd keep it on the goal list and add more challenging goals to it as well.

  the moment it is no longer an inner-battle to fight an old habit of reaching to something other then water, YOU HIT YOUR GOAL! look at you! 10 glasses for 21 days! that is emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'd say change your goal and see if you still continue with the habit and take it from there. Great job on consuming all that water!

May Goals

Monday, May 05, 2014

I saw this on another blog and thought it was a great way for me to keep track of what I want to accomplish each month of my journey. Since this is my first time setting monthly goals I'm going to make them what I think is attainable and then maybe up them next month to make them harder.

Goal #1 - Reach 229 or lower by month end. This is the weight I was when we conceived our son in 2010.
Goal #2 - Complete 500+ minutes of fitness during the month.
Goal #3 - Drink 8+ glasses of water every day

I think that's it for now. If I come up with anything else I'll add it in.
What are your goals for this month.

When To Weigh In

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

So I've been playing around with when to weigh myself and I think I need to weigh after I exercise. I usually weigh right after I get up and use the restroom, but haven't been seeing any weight changes.
This am I did a test and weighed before and after exercise…a 1.5 pd difference. I'll have to try again tomorrow, but I think it's because my joints feel so stiff and swollen first thing in the morning.
Maybe I need time to get them limbered up?

I'm in agreement with the girls here.
I weigh myself first thing every morning. Not always happy with the result, lol, but it seems the most honest way to do it.

    I agree with the others. Weighing after working out will just show water loss.

    Ditto what the others said about weighing after the gym.

If you choose the same time, scale, clothes, etc you will have a reasonably accurate picture of how your weight loss is progressing.

    Weighing in after a workout is probably just showing water loss. Check out this SP article.

If you keep working at it, and weigh yourself at the same time/same day/in the same clothes etc you will start to see movement.

    I'm no expert...but I have always been told that you shouldn't weigh yourself after a workout, because any weight loss would just be water weight, not a true loss. Water weight loss isn't the same as fat loss.

But no matter when you weigh yourself, just make sure you're also looking for non-scale victories. Those are the best!
