“Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

Monday, May 06, 2013

Back again. At my heaviest again.
It is so hard being this weight. It's hurts to move, it's hard to breathe when I push myself.
I feel people are disappointed in me.
I have 12 weeks of summer days ahead. That is long enough to make a big difference in my life. If I can just focus.

Goals: Lose weight, feel lighter, look better, make a better impression.
Move everyday, so I feel lighter and happier.
Finish my beginners language programme.
Apply for new jobs, go for interviews, get a new start.
Face my fear, settle on a college course.
Start a new social hobby, set out to make a new friend.
Waste less time. Waste less food and money.
Find a new place to live, where I can grow.

I'll log my progress, as the weeks go by. Fingers crossed after the 12 weeks are up I will see a difference.

    I know, my weight has gone up a bit too. Since my back is much better now, I'm getting back on an exercise program.

    These are good overall goals, but are they specific enough? Specific goals should be able to be broken into smaller goals and have ways of being measured. For instance, instead of saying 'waste less time' you might consider 'I will schedule my days to ensure I have 30 minutes of exercise, enough time to do household chores and errands, and I will have a list of healthy activities I can do if I find myself bored or with free time.' This goal is more specific and is measureable - did you meet the 30 minutes of exercise or no? Did you do specific chores and errands? Did you find yourself spending time doing something productive or not?

    After you've made your goals SMART (do a search here on SP for what SMART stands for) then break them down into the smaller steps and figure out how you will be able to do everything you want to do without feeling totally overwhelmed. If all you can do is change a few small things, that's fine! Small changes made over time will make it seem easier while still moving you forward. When they become habit then you can make additional changes. Trying to change everything perfectly all at once is extremely difficult on your mind and your body, and often leads to feelings of failure if you don't meet every goal exactly. Be kind to yourself and go slowly. You'll get there in time and without pushing yourself to unhealthy measures.
