Long-term Goals (June/13)

Sunday, June 09, 2013

SparkCoach asked me to give some thought to some long-term goals for myself today. Here's what I came up with (in no particular order of importance):

Within the Coming Year:

emoticon Reach my goal weight. (Reachable with work.)
emoticon Pay off the mortgage. (Reachable with work.)
emoticon Run a 5K. (ACCOMPLISHED - May 24, 2014 - Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women)
emoticon Bucket List Item: Go to a Formula One race. (ACCOMPLISHED - Nov. 2013 - Austin, TX. Best of all, we met one of my cousins from the UK and his wife for it. FABULOUS time!!)

Within Five Years:

emoticon Finish the basement & landscaping (Reachable with work.)
emoticon Visit my family in the UK again (Reachable with work.)
emoticon Run a 10K (Reachable with work as long as I meet my fitness goals.)
emoticon Bucket List Item: Become fluent in Welsh (Reachable with work.)

Within Ten Years:

emoticon Save enough money to retire comfortably (Reachable with work.)
emoticon Sell our business (Reachable with work.)
emoticon Run a half-marathon (Reachable with work as long as I maintain my fitness goals - I'll be 60 years old in 10 years.)
emoticon Bucket List Item: Walk the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Peru (Reachable with work as long as I maintain my fitness goals)

OK, I think these are good goals - tough, but achievable if I really work at them. ...and, let's face it, where's the fun in achieving a goal you didn't work for?!

    Hi Lisa:

I've stalled over the past couple of months, but I can still do it this year. I've been spotty with my program, but am ready to pick up again.

Thanks for the encouragement!

    How are you doing on your first goal: reach goal weight within the coming year?

I loved watching you lose weight consistently. Are you still following your program? emoticon This is the beginning of the next 6 months.
