Tip on new goal?

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

It took me soooo long to finally reach and keep my first goal weight of 75 kilos.
The first year long it seemed every time I reached it something inside me just gave up and the weight went up again.
Now I am a more active, movementfriendly, allweather clothing owner. I have kept my weight under 75 and am ready for my next goal.
Since my job and private life demand my flexibility, keeping healthy became the little afterthought no matter where and at what time.
I can only make baby steps. Possible at the moment: a zumba class a week, a hike ( 8-15 km) a week, walking everywhere (around 20 km per week) and some muscle workout (either dumbbell, or stretchy band or wii).
I do not track my food eaten.
I know to many people this might sound a too laid back attitude, but I have to divide my personal resources and : Yes, sometimes caring about my weight or fitness can wait.

But I still feel the necessity to define goals to participate properly in the spark way of losing weight. Should I simply be realistic and head for losing 6 ponds (goal weight 70 kg) until February. Or is a small time span more motivating: like weighing 72 kilos for chrismas?

Anyone else who struggles with goal setting ? Is it unrealistic I ever get to my healthy BMI weight of 58 kilos (31 ponds to go) with these baby steps?
