My Goals

Thursday, October 25, 2012

So I just saw a video that told me I should write down my goals for better success at reaching them. Here goes:

1. I want to lose weight to be healthier and to look better
2. I want to sleep better at night. Currently I get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep but they are not always uninterrupted. Most nights I wake up in the middle of the night. I think exercising will help with that.
3. I want to eat healthier. I have been doing a good job with that...measuring my food, tracking it and making good, healthy meals.
4. I want to exercise more. This one is my biggest goal because up until recently, I have hated to workout. I have found some really fun things to do though so I'm encouraged that this will be easier to accomplish now.
5. I know this is not necessarily a "healthy" goal but it's a goal nonetheless...I want to look thin and great so that I can show my ex-husband that I look better than his current former "best friend". Like I said, not necessarily a "healthy" goal and it's really "in your face", but it's how I feel and it's something I want.

I think these are all obtainable goals and I am pretty excited to fulfill them. Once they are accomplished I know I'll have to think of more but this is a good start for now.

    If it makes you feel good about you it's healthy for your mind so go for it on #5. I have a kind of "weight loss bucket list" on one of my blogs and I won't lie, as much as I want to feel good about myself and be healthier for my family, I most definitely want to look sexy, to be able to flaunt my thinner self in front of people and say, "Yeah, this is me, don't I look GOOOOOD?" -laughs- And the work I'm putting into changing my body, hell if I don't deserve to feel that way. -laughs- And I don't mean it in a mean spirited way where I'd actually SAY that but just in my head talking.

    #5 made me laugh. It's just so "real"! Although I don't normally condone jealous, vengeful attitudes, you gotta find your motivation!!

Re: #4 -- Would you be willing to share with me (on my SparkPage) your new, fun ways of exercising? I, too, hate to exercise, and am having a hard time coming up with new ways to keep it interesting.

Thanks!! emoticon
