New years planning!

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

I know, I know its totally cliche to make weight loss related new years resolutions.
But, I am super motivated, have a plan and I am totally over all the junky sugary bready foods Ive been eating. Some of these things sound a bit ambitious, like one of my goals is to use my elliptical everyday, but Ive found with that particular goal that if I do exercise everyday it becomes less and less like a chore. Im up for a challenge and I promise to listen to my mind and body and not over do it and tire myself out. So lets get into it.


Weight loss/food/fitness-
-Get to 180lbs by the end of April
-Get to 150lbs by august
-Plan meals for the week every sunday
-Work out on my elliptical everyday for atleast 20 minutes
-Go for a walk atleast 3 times a week
-Do yoga 3 times a week (mon, wednesday, friday)

-Go to bed by 9:30 every night

-No more gluten
-No more refined sugar
-Track food on spark people, use weight watchers point calculator

General goals:
-Read a book a month
-Print photos regularly
-Write in a journal once a week, like a recap of the week
-Start drawing again
-Do my nails every monday
-Set wedding date
-Use a printed monthly calender to write daily goals and track general progress/goals
-Get rid of junky items I do not use so that everything I own is nice, and simple

It sounds like a lot of stuff once its written down, but its stuff Ive already been working towards and just want to get it written down and in a goal format. Im really looking forward to this year, and Im going to make it a good one.

    I truly love all your "general goals"! Watch out for the word "every" and "no" in your resolutions though. I find they sabotage easily. Try "most" and "less" in their places. If you do those things 80-90% of your year (or even 50%), how much better will your 2013 be than last year?! Plus, who needs the guilt of not being perfect!
Best wishes to you for EVERY success you set your eyes on! (haha... see what I did there? I'm not a tee-totaler after all.)
Happy 2013!
