It's a new year, with new chances. I sit here and wonder, out of the millions of people on Sparkpeople have started and stopped and started again with the lifestyle journey. How many people have started out strong and determined and motivated just to let other things in their lives take over until the journey is almost non existant. I am very guilty of that. If I could lose a pound for everytime I have started and stopped, I'd almost be at my goal weight by now. While I used to really beat myself up over doing that, I've come to realize that this is simply human nature. With that being said, I also know that if I want it, I have to achieve it. No one else is going to do it for me. I didn't make any New Year resolutions this year. I, instead, made a 30 day goal list; not just for my weight loss, but for my all around life. Right now, my life is so cluttered and unorganized that I feel dizzy and hopeless. I still haven't found a job. I am behind in school. My house is a mess (no joke) and I look and feel like a slob. Of course I am the only one that can fix it. So, rather than make the usual resolutions to lose weight, keep my house tidy, try harder at this or that, etc etc., I am doing 30 days at a time. Here is my January goal list:
30 day Goals: Jan. 1-31, 2013
1. Walk every day. Indoor or outdoor.
2. Record everything I eat good and bad.
3. Get caught up and stay caught up with classes.
4. Put in at least 3-5 applications/resumes per week.
5. Twenty minutes of writing at least 3 times week.
6. No red meat for 30 days.
7. Write back to pen pals every Sunday.
8. Work on one room per week.
I will try to keep my goals at no more than 10 each month. January's goals, I think are suitable and realistic. So, on that note, Good luck to everyone with their resolutions/goals and good luck to me! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
