August 13, 2012: Reworked goals

Monday, August 13, 2012

My long-longterm goal is to get to a healthy weight and become as fit as I can. That is a LOT of weight to lose, so I'm accepting that in order to get there I need to do it in a lot of steps.

Goal 1: Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.

Goal 2: Ease off drinking diet Dr. Pepper

Goal 3: Exercise on most days at least a little. Get in at least 3 good workouts weekly, to start. I have issues with arthritic knees, so I accept that it needs to be low impact.

Goal 4: Eat more fruits and vegetables.

Goal 5: Be sparing with sweets and processed foods of any kind

Goal 6: I have learned that I don't do well with eating a LITTLE potato chips. They're off the menu.

Goal 7: Make some relaxation time every day, as I get easily stressed. Whether it's some yoga time, reading, having my coffee or tea on the back porch where I can watch the breeze in the trees and hear the birds, or just time with family. Every day.

Goal 8: I want to lose 20 lb. by Thanksgiving. All the above will be utilized to make that happen.
