Real Life Goals

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I have decided that even though I don't celebrate new years, I AM going to make measurable goals for this year.

so this is what I decided.

*I want to make easy to put together snacks that I can reach for, instead of reaching for easy junk for a snack

* I want to start cooking more than one portion of meals to cook.

* I want to start baking my own bread (of course I'm gonna need a bread machine first)

* I want to weigh 199 pounds before 2014. (i'm starting at 226)

* I want to balance my exercise between belly dancing and core work and rehabilitative exercises.

**** One goal I have thats not exactly specific or measurable, mostly cuz I don't know how to reword it is ~ I want to improve my relationship with food. I know I am beautiful even with hirsutism, loose skin all over my body, spider veins and stretch marks. I'm not insecure. i don't look in the mirror and hate myself. But out of habit I reach for carbs when I don't need that JUNK. I reach for bad foods with bad relationships I can't get rid off and still trying to put a handle on it. I really want to improve my relationship/addiction/craving for carbs. part of it is lazy, and part of it is going to be an ongoing life journey.

I am trying to not think of myself being bigger as "chronic weight problem" which is what some of my relatives think of it as, but I know - one step at a time.

    Great goals! I understand about the difficulty in making something so reasonable measurable. I'm reminded of old testament days when rulers felt it was necessary to make over 600 laws after having received the Ten Commandments. It's the bureaucracy of it all . . . and by adding healthy goals to your list, you will improve your relationship over time (mind you, it's never as easy as a cure . . . but making changes over the long haul truly make a difference when it comes to making better choices when those choices matter.) Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    One step at a time. It's the only way that it'll work. I 'm walking this journey as well.
