Jan. update, week 2

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

My Goals for January to help me achieve my 2011 goals are.....

*Restart Spark Diet Plan... emoticon

*Get to stage 2 within 2 weeks.... (This will be next week)

*Put up More Visual motivators around my house .... emoticon

*Exercise 60 minutes a day (at least), 5 days a week....Didn't happen most days last week due to illness. On track so far this week.

*Lose 8 lbs in January...Lost 1 so far.

*Stay accountable, Blog once a week, and keep up with team Challenges Daily....So far so good.


I edited it a bit. With being sick last week, and recuperating this week, I dropped meditation and Tarot studies from my January goals. If I have the time and energy to do these things, I will, but I'm not going to worry about working them into the schedule until next month.

As I said, I was sick last week, but have been feeling better the last few days. I got up and started to do my Cardio Kickboxing with Coach Nicole, and 3 minutes into is, I thought my lungs were on fire! I kept at it though, got 20 minutes in, then an additional 10 minutes of dancing around the living room with my daughter. She loves that! By the end of I felt like pudding. I couldn't believe how quickly I went back to feeling like the first time I did a workout. I hope it doesn't take too long to get back into the swing of things.

With tax time coming up, my husband and I are strongly weighing our options. On one hand, we are thinking of moving back to KS. where all my family and friends live. We could get an actual house with a yard and everything for less than our crappy little apartment here in IL. We would have a babysitter so that we could actually go out once in a while. Plus I do get lonely here, literally not knowing anyone other than hubby and baby. On the other hand, hubby has a good job here with excellent benefits, and there just aren't that many jobs in KS. We could get down there and not be able to find work. It seems like the smartest thing to do would be to stay right here, but living down there would make things way easier. So I don't know yet.

Well, that's about it for this weeks update. I hope all my wonderful Spark Friends are having a great week so far, and are having fun reaching their goals!!!! Talk to you guys later!!!

    Great job reevaluating your goals after being ill. Sometimes things get in the way and as long as we don't lose site and pick up when we can we are doing well! Best of luck to you on your other choices.

    I am doing the same thing, making monthly goals to help me accomplish my 2011 goals. I may revise them though, at the end of this month. My main thing is to lose weight and move to Washington I HATE being in Wisconsin, alone with no family, I hate the weather, ppl are unfriendly, etc etc and unlike you I don't have a great job to leave so less of a challenge. We're leaving in May.

    Anyway so I might revise my goals to narrow it down and cut out "extraneous" stuff that detracts from my main mission.

    Mostly I'm wanting to make exercise goals that I'm likely to keep up, and nutrition goals that I'll stick to..

    Staying accountable is often the best thing. . . but also the most difficult.

    If you can lose 8 pounds, you go girl! I am lucky if I do that in two months. emoticon

    Still. . . you sound thoughtful and centered. emoticon

    I would say you are working the plan. emoticon
