October accomplishments and November goals

Monday, November 02, 2009

I promised myself last month when I started this, that it would become a monthly habit. I believe it will become a very useful and necessary tool for me and my progress (not to mention it helps to have it written). So, heres October in review and my goals I hope to achieve for November.

For October:
1) What I accomplished:
- I completed my first 5K in a great time for a beginner. Woo Hoo!
- I gave up diet soda
- I started a journey to work on my self esteem/ self worth and start standing up for me.
- Ive learned to better manage my time by prioritizing and creating the actual to do list.

2) What I fell short on.
- My weight loss goal of 4lbs.

3) What I learned.
- That Im stronger than I think and if I put my mind to it I can accomplish what I set out to do. I am worth it!

For November:

1) What I want to improve:
- To lose 3lbs this month and hopefully break my plateau having recalculated my BMR and activity levels
- To stay true to my fitness and nutrition schedule - NO diet soda
- To train and complete my first 10k on Nov 26th
- To practice control on Thanksgiving day (this shouldnt be too bad were having it at my house, so Im in control of food prep)
- To give blood

2) What will I have to do in order to accomplish this.
- To be true to myself in my journalising and reflect daily to make sure Im on track. If not figure out why and what needs to be changed in my program.

3) What negative judgements on myself do I need to let go of to help me realize this accomplishment.
- I need to get rid of that little voice that tells me I cant do it or youve worked out 30 min thats good enough and change that thinking to a positive. I also need to put me first!

Have a great November everyone!

    I think you're smart to step back and look at your progress, and it's a great idea to break it down and make a plan. Good for you! emoticon
