Little goals to get to my bigger goals

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I made some goals for myself. The first goal is to weigh 140 by the Fourth of July. So now I have to ask myself...what am I doing to meet this goal? What have I done in the past 24 hours to help me meet that goal?

Well, I just came back from a 45 minute bike ride. It was over 6 miles long, which may not sound like much, but I live in a very hilly area. So I'm proud of that. It is a picture perfect day...70 degrees, sunny, daffodils, tulips, freshly mown lawns...so I didn't want to waste that, especially since all winter I've been using the weather as an excuse to not exercise. I mapped the route I took today and I hope to do the same route tomorrow.

I'm also hoping to take a 30 minute walk this evening with one of my kids. It's a nice way to connect and the more exercise I get, the better.

So, what will I do in the NEXT 24 hours to help me get to that goal? Cuz, y'know, it's ain't just gonna happen without some real changes. So, in the next 24 hours, I will avoid chocolate. I know. I know. A little chocolate is okay. But I really need to lose my taste for it, and change some bad habits. So, I'm not saying forever, but I'm saying there will be no chocolate for the next 24 hours. Also, in the next 24 hours, no coffee. I really need to cut back because I love my coffee with lots of cream and sugar. I only do one a day, but I'd like to change that to only an occasional coffee.

And in the next 24 hours I will exercise a MINIMUM of 1 hour.

These seem like reasonable goals. I think I can do this!
