A&I Blog - February Goals

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

I'm participating in the Aspire and Inspire Team's Buddy Support Group for February, and part of our first week's challenge is to blog about our February goals.

I don't like to make specific goals for that amount of time. I prefer to set goals on a weekly basis, so I don't get discouraged or despair of reaching a goal if I have a bad week. I do like to vision where I want to be though. So this morning I took a few minutes to project into the future and see how I would like to be feeling at the end of February. I am visioning for myself that I will have made healthy changes in my eating, that I will be more active than I am right now, that I will be journaling regularly, and that I will be feeling an improved connection with Healthy Me.

Now for the actual steps to get there, I am setting more specific goals for this week, from today to next Tuesday, to fit in with the A&I challenge. I do like the stepping stones I set for myself in the blog post before this one, so I am incorporating them here.

Drink 64 oz of water a day, and internalize my healthy connection with water.

Move intentionally 10 minutes each day, and internalize my healthy connection with my body.

Eat a serving of fruit with breakfast and lunch, and eat a serving of vegetables with lunch and dinner, every day, for a total of 4 freggies a day, and internalize my healthy connection with my good choices.

Explore different ways to journal on my journey to connect with Healthy Me.

I'm going to enjoy the month of February. emoticon

    I really enjoyed reading your blog and your phrase of internalizing your healthy connections to different goals. I like the idea of creating a vision of yourself for the end of the month, but making goals for one week at a time! Thank you for sharing your ideas. I wish you much success with your goals-with your positive attitude, I have no doubt you will reach them! emoticon emoticon

    I like the way you approached your goals. Like you, I hesitate to make goals for more than one week at a time - I become too easily frustrated and tend to give up when I don't reach them!
Stay strong!

    You have done a terrific job of attending to what is most important to you and planning your goals accordingly. That's a sure way to accomplish the best for a "healthy you".
And thanks for the reminder about journaling. I need to include that in my plan, too.

    Hi Lisa, and good job on really thinking about what you can do and will do over the next week. I think I could add each of your specific items to my list and be better for it. Some days, the water is my hardest thing to do. Other days, it's a piece of cake. Well, not really, but it's easy.
You will do well, my friend.

  My goal is to eat less red meat (oh, how I love bacon), and replace it with fish and chicken. I am also trying to eat more vegetables and I currently have brussels sprouts, carrots, and cabbage waiting to be cooked. Fruit has never been a problem and I eat an apple and orange every day. I also like pineapple and bananas.

    Goals don't have to be big, just something to work towards.
Good luck with yours.
