Goals for the First Quarter of 2013

Saturday, December 29, 2012

2013 has brought the end of my weight loss within sight. I can't believe I'm 3 months ahead of my original goal. I have decided to make quarterly goals for this year and try to keep them reasonable. So with that in mind here I go:

emoticon Weight Loss
1. To lose 0.5# a week

emoticon Decorations
*1. Put all Christmas decorations away by January 15.
*2. Put Valentine's decorations up by February 1.
*3. Put snowman and Valentine's decorations away by February 20.
*4. Put Easter decorations up by March 1.

emoticon Cleaning
Maintain the deep cleaning done for Christmas by:
1. Vacuum 2X a week.
2. Swiffer wet and dry weekly.
3. Dust weekly.
4. Mop in the first week of each month.
5. Clean mirrors, glass doors, picture frames and inside windows monthly.

emoticon Food
1. Drink at least 64 ounces of water daily.
2. Stay in calorie range daily.
3. Stay in range on protein, fiber and carbs 75 % of days.

emoticon Exercise
1. 10 minutes cardio 3X a week
2. 20 minutes strength training 3X a week
3. 15 wall push up, 15 crunches or walk in place at each commercial break when watching TV.

emoticon Spiritual
1. Keep up with Through the Bible in a year reading.
2. Attend a Church service weekly.
3. Attend a Bible study weekly.

emoticon Just for me
1. Do one thing a week for my enjoyment. ( breakfast out, a movie, scrapbook day, a walk in the woods, a scenic drive)
2. A scrapbook page a week using material from my scrapbook calendar.

Wish me luck!

New list is up and ready to go.
Did well with these goals except for the fitness. So next fitness ones new. I'm really surprised how easy it has become to keep my protein, fiber and cars in check. I'm proud of the progress I've made.

    Good for you. These are great goals.

MY goal is going to be the same as last year -- to weigh less at the end of the year than at the beginning. It is the one resolution in my life that I actually achieved.
