Goal Setting

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

My long term goal is to be able to run a marathon. I would like to be able to ride my bike on the bike trails at Arkabutla Lake. Of course, I want to feel good in a bathing suit. I want to feel good in my own skin. More than that I want to feel healthy and alive.

I want to have a healthy BMI which means that I should weigh no more than 167 lbs.

I will achieve this goal by first and foremost eating healthy most of the time. I realize that I will occasionally cave into my cravings and have chocolate or reese's or ice cream or pie but I will strive to eat healthy the majority of the time. I will exercise as often as I can. I have an elliptical, DVDs, dumbbells, resistance bands, a jump rope, and my own body. I have the basics to workout. I will use all of these to reach my goals. In the beginning, I will walk and use the DVDs the most.

I imagine that when I have reached my goal, I will run a marathon and feel amazingly excited at the end. I also imagine standing on a beach with my husband in a bathing suit and feeling beautiful.

I will benefit from working hard to reach these goals by being healthy and having more energy.

    emoticon goals! Very wise to build in the knowledge that not every choice will be perfectly in line with the goals, that the larger picture is what matters.

    My short term goals are to walk at least 4 times per week and to lose 5 lbs by the end of February.

    You will benefit more than you know. I'm always interested by people who go to their doctor and have a full work-up done to compare to the final results. It's always amazing how much your body can accomplish for you just by eating healthy and staying fit. Do you have any short-term goals?
