Setting some goals

Sunday, May 05, 2013

First of all Thank You for all your prayers and support. I still don't know exactly how to motivate myself but I have decided to set some small goals and small rewards to help myself feel like I have an attainable place to get too. I am setting three goals that I think will be doable so as not to over stretch myself but still stretch a little bit.

Goal #1: Eat out only one time a week.
Reward: Splurge for steaks to grill at home.

Goal #2: Walk at least 4 times a week.
Reward: New pair of cute undies.

Goal #3: Track my food at least three days a week.
Reward: Small milk shake on cheat day.

An additional goal, which I don't have a reward for is to find a psychiatrist that I can get into for an appointment to try and stabilize my mood. We moved 8 months ago and I still have not found a psychiatrist and have just been getting my meds from a family practice doc but I need an adjustment and he can't do that for me sadly.

    Fancy panties. Brilliant Cowgirl! I haven't thought of any sort of reward system, but I've make up tons of tiny goals.

    Wonderful, wonderful!! You are on your way and I think you will do a lot better once you see your new psychiatrist. Moving is difficult (I moved to this area 1 year ago) and it is hard to find new doctors. I am still praying for you and good luck with your great goals. Love, Chelsea emoticon emoticon

    Great goals and rewards! Very attainable, but still enough to challenge you. Can your family doctor recommend a new psychiatrist for you? I'll be praying for you to find a new dr who is a good fit for you and that you can get in to see him/her quickly so you can get your meds adjusted as needed. Hang in there! emoticon
