September goals and new rules

Sunday, September 06, 2009

My September goals :
!. to lose 5 pounds
by the 20th (my daughters baby shower that will give me a 25 pound loss)
2. to drink 8 glasses of water everyday
3. to exercise or walk at least 3 times per week.
4. to only eat foods that I know the exact calories of.
5. to balance my plate.

How I will reach my goals:
1. to weigh and measure my food, and make good choices
2. to pour out my water for the day and make sure the pitcher is empty by 6:00pm
3. to get my fat butt out the door and stop making excuses
4. to prepare my own meals and take them with me when i go out and order only foods that i know the counts of before I eat them.
5. to figure out the right portions of protein, fat, carbs. that should be on my plate at each meal. and have 2-3 snacks

I saw something like this on someone's biog and thought what a great idea.
I don't usually set goals for my self and just play out the days as they come.
i think it will be nice to have actual goals and a plan on how to get them done.
I will blog at the end of the month and tell you how it went. emoticon

  I'm just getting started. Reviewing your plan of how to achieve your goals, step by step, was very motivating to me. Especially the idea of putting the amount of water you need to drink for the day in a pitcher. Thanks for sharing emoticon
