This blog is a S.M.A.R.T Goals Blog as required by our BLC Teams
to create our own...:::Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-Bound Goals:::...
For me, my season right now doesn't hold any major issue. I seek BALANCE as I Maintain my fitness and nutrition goals. I've developed healthy routines and menus that fit our family's lifestyle, and I want to maintain those....::learning to use any new &/or improved tool
as I journey on:::...
....::::Overall Goals Already Established::::....
:::: I will continue to TRACK every BLT ( bite...lick....taste )
:::: I will continue to "do my fitness thing"; it works for me
:::: I will continue to get enough rest at night ( 7-8 hours)
:::: I will weigh myself 1x/week
:::: I will stop and take time for me
The only SPECIFIC Goals I have currently are lengthening my running distance.

This Sunday, I will RUN that
!! ....:::my longest run to date.
My evolving goal is to increase my running mileage & I have no idea just HOW far that will take me. But YOU will be the first to know when I know. LOL!!
I also have a goal to lose 3-5 pounds and STAY there in that range.
Long-term-wise, I'd like to lose 2 more inches from my hips, but we shall just have to see about that.
I have to SAY that I am currently learning just WHAT my ideal body measurements, weight zone and body fat % are:::....it is a challenge for me to set aside what the NORM says I should weigh/measure/etc.....and EMBRACE what is MY Ideal.
