Setting goals...again ...

Monday, April 09, 2012

I'm having some trouble setting my goals. There's no problem coming up with goals, very much the opposite. I am the "do or die trying" type; can't cut back to those baby steps easily, and then I miss the goal altogether because I give it up. So my only goal today might be to work on re-setting those over-reaching, failure generating goals around my exercises that don't let me work on the good habits at a pace I can incorporate and make into a daily habit. My couch potato habit has become stronger since retirement.

I'm still dropping a little, although so slowly I am super qualified for the slow losers site. I'm seven pounds from being within my ideal BMI. I'll be exercising a lot outdoors (gardening) pretty soon, and hiking a lot if my plans jell. But those don't qualify for building the day-to-day habits, since I've always done these every summer.

On the plus side, I'm having no trouble with good eating habits. Nor the water drinking, nor the veggie/fruit goals, nor the little daily habits, the ones that have eluded me for years, that I'm trying to incorporate. That is how I know this re-setting will work for me. So following all the advice on this web site has been very helpful, and I need to keep going to get the day it is actually a habit. And that means, today I will house clean my goals on this site, and re-set them again.

    You've taken a good step in resetting instead of giving up. You haven't given up on yourself!
