My Goals and Action Plan from A to Z!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

9-18-12
I can't believe this year is almost over. Where has the time gone? I'm ready for my goals to become a reality. What will it take?

Attitude - have a positive, can do attitude.

Believe - believe in myself and my goals enough to pursue them and stick to it.

Commitment - to stick to the plan and have a backup when things don't work out as planned.

Determination - to not give up, no matter what life throws at me.

Exercise - workout (ST & Cardio at least 3 times a week).

Food - follow the Paleo lifestyle.

Goals - set goals, post them where I will see them and follow them.

Hydrate - drink at least 64 oz of water everyday.

Involve - others in my plan for support, encouragement, and accountability.

Just - do it!

Keep - a log of my exercise and nutrition.

Laughter - enjoy life and laugh often. Laughter is good medicine.

Massage - treat myself to a massage every month or two to help keep my muscles loose.

Never - give up or quit. All things are possible.

Oxygen - get outside as often as possible for fresh air and exercise (running, walking, bike riding, raking leaves, etc).

Pray - prayer makes all the difference and I can't do this on my own.

Quit - making excuses. They don't work and it's not worth it.

Run - as often as possible and complete the races I sign up for.

Sleep - get 7-8 hours of sleep per night.

Train - body, mind, and spirit. Keep all areas of my life balanced as much as possible.

Uncover - the hidden reasons that keep my from reaching my goals and figure out an action plan to change those reasons into success.

Victory - celebrate each accomplishment on my journey, no matter how big or small.

Watch - others and learn from them. Ask questions, when necessary, so I can succeed too.

eXpect - results and don't settle for less.

Yell - for help from others when I need it. This applies to all areas of life. Sometimes we need others to give us their perspective or help get us jump started again.

Zero - excuses. Excuses don't get results. Hard work, planning, and doing the right things get results.

Now it's time to go after my goals and achieve them!!!

Weight loss goal:
Weigh 175 pounds by the end of December 2012!!!!

Running goals:
Complete the St. Jude's Half Marathon in December and shoot for a time of 3:10 or better.

Hopefully complete some other half marathons between now and the end of the year.

Sign up for and run some local 5K's and shoot for a time of 35 minutes or better.
Apple Day's 5K

Nutrition Goals:
Eat clean by following the Paleo lifestyle 80% of the time. Allow for treats once in a while.

Mental/Spiritual Goals:
Complete the Beth Moore Bible Study "James Mercy Triumphs" by the end of October.

    As I started reading, I wondered what you were going to put for X and Z. Good job Shirley. Sorry to hear that you are still having a lot of pain.
