BLC 22 Goals

Monday, June 10, 2013

Yup itís that time. The first week of the new round of BLC has started and itís time to set some goals. Iíve been thinking a lot about this for the past week but not writing them down. Itís been one of those weird times where Iíve once again had some brain fog, been busy and just not sure what I wanted to accomplish this round. Iím still not sure, but Iím running out of time to get them done in time for the weekend challenge. Nothing like leaving it for the last minute, huh? This is a 12 week challenge so each of these goals are going to be accomplished in that 12 week timeframe.

SMART goals, as everyone probably knows by now, are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, and Relevant & Timely. So I want to be healthy and active. Thatís my main goal however that isnít very SMART. So hereís how Iím going to achieve that.

1. Since this is a weight loss challenge of course there is going to be a weight loss goal. I want to lose a minimum of 5 lbs which will put me at 155 and a few ounces.
2. I will be strength training a minimum of 2 times a week consistently whether using Spark exercises or a Bob Harper dvd that incorporates strength training and cardio, or a Coach Nicole video by the end of these 12 weeks.
3. I will declutter my kitchen 15 minutes a day and have it sustainably clean by the end of the 12 week challenge. This is a small goal again, but if I can do this I can start using the kitchen more.
4. I will cook breakfast at home at least 4 days, lunch 2 days & dinner 3 days minimum a week consistently. (I am adding 1 Ė 2 days a week to what I do now for each meal. So that tells you how much I eat out right now.)
5. I will maintain my gluten free diet. Allowing no ďcheatĒ days. Iíve been building to this. I havenít had a meal with gluten/wheat for several weeks now. I want to live this way, although it is sometimes hard.

I think that is enough to work on for 12 weeks. I donít want to burn myself out. Most of these are interconnected so they should be synergistic.

When I saw your comment on my blog, I came to yours. Somehow I had missed it also. I especially like your goal about strength training. That's what I need to do, so I'm going to send you a buddy request. emoticon

    Some awesome goals there Cyndi! That is frankly amazing you can eat out so much and keep the weight down AND keep it gluten free! Great idea to declutter the kitchen to encourage you to use it more!
Good luck with your goals!!

    These are great goals! I like that they are not all necessarily weight loss related, but living in a more healthful way will benefit the weight loss, and benefit you in so many more ways. You go, sweetie!

    I LOVE your eating at home goal! I have been eating out a lot lately too, and it is expensive and not as healthy! Great thinking!

    Great goals--you can do this! Eating at home will help you not only control the gluten etc. easier, but it will also help you reduce salt and calories (I swear commercial food has to be injected with calories because the comparable things I make at home are never as high in either salt or calories).

    Excellent goals! emoticon

I'm with you on reducing my eating out. It amazes me that when I actually DO cook for myself and bring my lunch to work, weight loss happens more easily. I should quote Homer Simpson and just say "DOH!" emoticon
