Goals V/S Resolutions

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

I'm not one for making resolutions. I will make goals though. I think it's important to have goals so you have something to work toward. I did make some personal and business goals for 2011 and some I achieved, some not. All in all, I'm quite happy with where I am.

My constant battle with my weight, is another story! I did lose 30 pounds last year. I am however, terrified to get back on the scale because I KNOW that I've gained some of them back. Not all of them, but some of them.

I can still fit into the smaller size clothing I had to buy when my others were falling off. Still comfy in those. But at the same time, I know I've not been good with the eating and exercise. I can also feel the few extra pounds that have crept up.

So here I am again. I will get through this holiday season. I know I probably won't be losing weight, but I'm going to work really hard on self control so I don't go completely off the deep end.

I'll be back here soon because I'm bound and determined to stay on track!

    Congratulations on that 30-pound weight loss! Also, I totally agree with your blog. This is why I created a 2013 Health & Fitness Bucket List. These are goals I plan on achieve before 2013 is completed!

So, much success to you with 2013 Health & Fitness Goals!

    I think for some, resolutions and goals are the same thing. For others, like myself, a resolution is some nebulous, non-specific wish before making a goal. I've stopped making resolutions and have started making goals. I find that it's more effective for me and my progress.

    I think a resolution is the way to get to the goal. I resolve to eat to my plan, register for my classes, pull out the sewing machine, whatever, and the goal is to achieve a certain weight, get the degree, finish the dress. You're right, though. It's easy to see a destination without understanding what it takes to get there.
