What to do.

Friday, February 22, 2013

I have decided that i need to set up some ground rules for myself i don't know what they are but just some goals i need to hit for myself to feel like i accomplished what i wanted to. I don't think of taking care of myself as a priority and it needs to be one. I will think of a few things and list them here. Otherwise i have been doing fine. Hope everyone is doing well.

    This is the best way to be accountable. I have my goal check every Tuesday and comment on my accomplishments. I have not been that successful but I am aware of what I should do. I hope you have better ability to adhere to them than I have. Mine are very simple such as drinking water, eating folate foods daily, doing more high intensity minutes on my elliptical.

Good luck Julie! You have a great fan base!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good idea - goals need to be achievable though! Makes you feel good when you've achieved! :-)

    Julie, That's a great idea! It can be very helpful to put goals into writing, in a blog here or a personal journal, whatever works best for you. Read them often as a great reminder to stay focused on making yourself a priority. Good luck! emoticon

    emoticon I am doing the same thing-lol. It started out with writing down a "schedule" and making sure to put "me" on the list. It's working,but as others have said-everyday is different & I am flexible about it.

    I also agree it's a great place to start - and remember it's a work in process so if you find something is just not working, instead of letting it get you really down, modify it. Celebrate your successes, no matter how small. Often we are too hard on ourselves. Don't give up and you will be so proud - it's about the little things along the way.

    I quit getting my nails done. Boooo! For financial reasons. That was one major treat/reward. However, I don't want to stop rewarding myself. I mean, sometimes, O.K. often, going to the gym is the reward after a crappy day. And my victories get downplayed a little. I mean, what am I going to do when I bring down my body fat percentage to a healthy range? I'm thinking a movie date with healthy snacks! Lately, my goal has been to increase my energy. Enough of my rambling. I'll think happy thoughts your way as you figure out your amazing goals! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I've always set goals by deciding what I want and then working backwards to where I am.

  Sounds like an interesting exercise and I am sure you will choose tasks that are best for you. Good luck on figuring out what will be your first set of tasks to reach your first goal. Keep us advised.

    I don't take care of myself like I need to either, Julie. My 100 Day challenges has really helped me, made me want to do the little goals that will lead to bigger goals later.

I think your game plan is a good one and will help you be more accountable to yourself for yourself. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you achieve your goals when you do set them!

  I agree that taking care of ourselves is very important. Imagine what it would be like if everyone took great care of themselves...we would all be in a much better place. Have a great weekend. emoticon
