More Specific Goals

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Yesterday I listed the main goals I want to achieve this year, but I've been asked to be more specific. Hmm...

I said I plan to exercise at least ten minutes per day (and walking the dogs does not count). I don't really want to be more specific than that. The point is to exercise rather than not doing anything all day. I don't care if I walk, cycle, do a video or anything as long as I do something to get my heart pumping. I hope to be eventually exercising much more than ten minutes a day, but ten minutes is my minimum.

I also said I plan to make sure I take time for myself during the day. I should give myself at least an hour a day that I can do something for myself - and I don't mean just exercise (even though that's taking time for myself too). I can meditate, read a mystery, or spend time on the computer - something just for me.

Lastly, I said I wanted to make sure I eat in a healthy way. I plan on eating fruits and vegetables each day. I plan on eating every few hours so that my metabolism keeps running strong. I plan on keeping track of what I eat at least one day per week. I also plan on being aware of what I do eat even if I don't write it down.

These are my more specific goals. Wow! I need to post these up somewhere now to make sure I achieve them.

    Those are great ways to start. They say to start with small specific goals. Once you are able to successfully accomplish those, add on to them and push forward. Goal setting is a learned process, but is also something you revise as you move forward. Good luck as you move forward. You are off to a great start.
