Setting My Goals for 2013 - My Year of Renewing ME

Sunday, December 02, 2012

My current goals in 2012 will be bridging over to 2013 and I am looking forward to working on them and completing them and preparing for my trip to Ireland in 2014.

I want to be healthy to enjoy that trip and not look like a tipical "old gal" when I go but remain as independent as I am at this time. I am hoping my grand daughter will join me but only 2014 will tell me what will be.

Currently I am working closely with the Vancouver Cardiac Rehab Centre to get healthy and in doing this I have opened a door of wealth for support and information that would not normally be available to me. All this is combining with the goals I am going to be setting now.

1. these goals are for me, not someone else, there has been sufficient studies done that people who set goals for other people seldom succeed. That does not mean that all people who set goals for other people fail, it just means that if you want to succeed, your goal should be defined more for you and not the other person.

2. work closely with my network support in the cardiac rehab to succeed, following the advise of my cardiologist, dietician, psychiatrist, and case manager to become healthier then I am now;

3. continue to work on creating 12 new life style habits, 3 already under way;

4. continue to spark to share what I am learning with others so that they can have success too.

Rome was not build or destroyed in a day and my health can not be changed in a day, but I can work toward improving that health daily by removing myself from the unhealthy environment that I have been living in the past decade or so.

Anyone setting goals for themselves, I wish you much success with your goals. Remember to give yourself a breather when you feel it is too much and you can always go back and redefine your goals if you feel you have "bit off" too much.

For me, failure is not an option.

Have a healthy and prosperous ending to 2012 and beginning of 2013!!

    Great blog,Lindie, and very good goals. This cardiac rehab is really a plus in your life. I hope that the one I go to in January works as well for me.

Even better that you are setting these goals NOW and not after Christmas - I am sure that it will help you have a very healthy Christmas season.

And you are going to Ireland in 2014? Wow, way to go!
