June Goals!

June Goals!

I need to make some health / weight loss / exercise related goals! I’m never going to make any progress w/out some goals!

To help with my June goals, my employer will be starting a new contest next Monday, related to exercise minutes . . . I jumped right in & signed up.

I am going to become sugar-free in June . . . when I say sugar free I mean stop eating the cakes, cookies, pies, etc. that I have been consuming way too much of lately. It’s time to stop that, it’s not good for me & I eat entirely too much of it.

I will start taking all my medicine and supplements daily. I have bought the pills boxes, three of them, one for morning, noon and night. Now I just need to fill them up & use them!!!

It’s time to pull out all those exercise DVD’s & knock the dust off of them. I’m not going to win that challenge without doing some type of exercise. I have . . . Ok, I’m not sure how many of them I have. It’s time to pull them out & put them to use. Maybe even get in some saddle time . . . a long horseback ride sounds awesome right now!!

Ya’ll have a good one!!

    Keep your head up because you have a made up mind and you CAN do it! It took so many failures and set backs on my part but I've gotten this far and yes it was a hard journey but I persisted and was consistent. I'm not perfect at all at this time but I'm pushing forward and I know I'll never go back to where I came from. And a great way to JUST DO exercise is to WALK. I do that and it primes my workout pump! I'm cheering you on!

    Good for you.
    The vending machines are definitely a good thing to avoid.
    They removed the vending boxes from our building and replaced them with a self-serve catering room where you need to use a card account. I didn't sign up and have not bought a chip, cookie or candy since February!
    It really made a difference.
    Good luck.

    Love to hear it! ME TOO! emoticon

    I've decided I need to set some specific goals, since I've been kind of floating along - not gaining, not losing, just cruisin' of late. Thanks for putting that out there and reminding me I need to get more with it.

    I've been making myself do at least one 10-minute exercise video segment a day and often 2 of them and some times more than that. I'd heard somebody say you should always be able to find 10 minutes for yourself now and then, and I decided I could do that, so I started at it. It works! You commit to do 10 minutes of something, then set a timer for 10 minutes or do a 10-minute exercise video. If you decide to do 2 or 3 sets of 10 minutes in a row, go for it. If you work it out for 2 or 3 individual blocks of 10 minutes spread over a day, that's fine too. It feels a lot less daunting if you approach it in 10 minute increments. Magic will be delighted if you do some riding, too. GO FOR IT!

    Sounds like a good plan, I've cut out sugar too except for DIL bday. So I've been doing okay this month except for a few fast food take outs I just wasn't up to cooking !! Best wishes on your challenge.

    It is important to have those goals, well done! Remember baby steps :)
    I am glad to hear about the challenge that your employer is doing and I am sure that with your goals, you will see success. I joined a spring challenge on SP and we are in third week, it has given me the weight loss boost that I needed. I needed the accountability factor :)
    Looking forward to hearing about your progress!

    I am so glad to see you setting goals for June, when we write them down we become more accountable and in this time it's important. I too posted a blog on my May reflections and June Goals b/c I need to be held accountable. I ended up walking 5 miles today and have 2 blisters to show for it. I am thinking I need a new pair of shoes, so I'll be looking through my Mason catalog. I am glad you are completing the challenge at work, keep us up to date on it.
