This week's challenge is to create 2 SMART goals. This means to make a complete statement of how you will do this, when you will measure your prgress, and when it will happen.
SMART goals are:
My SMART goals:
I would like to weigh-in at 230 lbs. by June 23, 2010 in preparation for a family reunion. This is a loss of 24.6 lbs in 14 weeks, or 1 3/4 lbs per week. I will achieve this by having a consistant workout routine and eating only 1700 - 1900 calories per day. I will weigh-in weekly to track progress towards my target, and blog about it to keep me motivated.
I would like to be settled into a more consistant routine with my exercise by April 17. This gives me four full weeks plus the end of this week to build up to a weekly routine. I will achieve this by adding things each week as allowed by the physical therapist. The remainder of this week I will go to one water workout class, go on at least one 30 minute neighborhood walk, and do one upper body strength workout. Each week I will add two to three sessions of activity. By the week starting April 18, I will be doing a minimum of: 2 water workouts, 2 thirty-minute neighborhood walks, 3 strength training sessions, and 2 - 3 "other" fifteen-minute cardio sessions, such as elliptical or bicycle, per week. I will blog at the end of each week about my progress in working towards this goal.
