Well, hello....

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

As you can see, I am new to Sparkpeople. :) I'm slowly working my way through the site, checking out as much as I can. I know there are THOUSANDS of people here who are in the same boat I am so it's a comforting thought that I am not alone.

Obviously, I have a long term goal, which is to be down to my ideal weight of 130. I am 5'2" and according to clinical standards, their ideal weight for me would be 115'ish. But I am realist. At my healthiest point in my life, where I was working out and eating right, I could NEVER get below 123 lbs. I am simply not built to be a tiny lady. And you know what? I am okay with that. As long as I'm healthy, that's fine with me.

Short term goals are where I think I am going to find my most success. In the past, I've always thought long term, not thinking about the in-between moments. So what do I do about that? Set daily goals, then weekly, and so on. For instance, today my goal was to sign up for Sparkpeople and get online to start making a meal plan. CHECK AND CHECK!!! emoticon

So I ask you....

What goal did you accomplish today?

    Hi, and welcome! You're going to love it! My best advice is to track your food, even if it hurts. Lots of the time, it's not nearly as bad as you think it's going to be :) emoticon

My goal today is to get all my work done before noon (it's 5:56 am here), so I can hit the gym first, then enjoy my mom's retirement party this afternoon.

    It's Wednesday, January 9th, 1:05am and so far all I've accomplished today is logging in to SP, doing my blog, reading other people's blogs, and so forth....I'm also making Homemade Chicken Soup in the crockpot while I'm busy on the computer. Have a great day and WELCOME to SparkPeople emoticon
