November 1st... 2 months left in 2009

Sunday, November 01, 2009

A lot of my friends have been having reflections on the past (year, month, week, day, goals, etc). That has got me thinking....

I don't really make goals. I don't know why either. I guess when I used to make goals, I never really met them and I kept getting disappointed, so why make them? I don't know... So ANYWAY, I decided to make a couple of goals. (Thanks Ang for the inspiration!)

Goals for November:
**Go for a walk with Subaka at least 10 times
**Plan weekly meals
**Stay within calorie range at least 20 days
**Exercise for 10 minutes at least 15 days
**Do not stop at WaWa more than 4 times
**No eating after 9pm

I think that will be it for this month's goals. I'll re-evaluate them at the end of the month and see how I did.

By the way, I know that the time you eat really has not much to do with weight gain but I tend to eat (A LOT!) late at night. I just need to stop eating late at night PERIOD. I put 9pm because I have rotating shifts at work and sometimes don't even get home from work until 7:30 and don't have a chance to eat dinner before getting home.

    Though your list is a bit long, the items themselves are reasonable. You aren't saying NEVER, you are saying this much and no more...or instead of always, you are saying at least this often.

    This is how "normal" people live their lives. I want to be normal!

    I decided to set myself some goals for the month for the first time too! It seems to be so helpful for so many other sparkers I figured it could hurt!

    Here's to both of us reaching our goals and being ever more fabulous!

    Sounds like a good list of goals! Did you see my tracker sheet? Its hanging in my cubicle at work. I put a picture of it up at the beginning of October. I like check boxes and stuff like that. Makes me feel like I'm getting somewhere. It also puts it right in front of my face on what I need to be concentrating on! Good luck this month!

    I'm not much of a goal-maker either but in this case, I think it helps. And it will help you in other areas of your life. Very good list you made. Good luck and keep up the great work!
