Goal review

Saturday, July 20, 2013

It's so helpful to continually review your goals to ensure you are actively working towards SMART goals that are beneficial in the long run. As you meet your short term goals you will want to replace them with newer ones and track how much closer you are to your overall goal!

Current status: weighed in this week at 212 which has me up not down, fitness is nonexistent. I have a desire to workout but little getupandgo when it comes time to do it. My water is spot on more days then not and my eating has improved overall although if I have a high calorie meal I still tend to indulge the rest of the day which tends to lead to multiple days.

Review: Looking at this, I can see why my goals are not being met. I'm still not focusing my motivation when needed to get up and exercise so this needs improvement and focus. I also have dichotomous thought patterns when it comes to perfection which also needs to be targeted.

Vision: I would like to see myself drinking 10glasses of water a day, getting up early to do yoga and coming home from work to a walk outside before settling in with a healthy dinner that I had already planned.

Plan to make my vision a reality: I will set my alarm for 10 minutes earlier and have a beginner yoga routine picked out to do. I will make a date with DH to walk for at least 10minutes after work for 3 times a week over the next month and I will plan the meals weekly and leave DH a recipe daily so he does not derail my plans with takeout.

Baby steps. I can do this. Now to go catch up on my tracking. Even when I have unhealthy days, I need to track it all.

    I'm so frustrated with the plateau that I am on that I can relate to your feelings. I honestly do believe that exercise is the key to both feeling better physically AND mentally. You do so much for so many. You need to take some special time for yourself. Love ya... thanks for all that you do for me & for everyone. emoticon

    I love it when I stumble upon something that resonates with me. 14 days is totally doable! Best of luck to you on this amazing journey!

    Your blog struck home with me. I have been really stuck at one weight for about 9 months, sometimes up sometimes a little down. I have reviewed my goals and plan to FOCUS for just the next 14 days. Even if the number doesn't come down like I want, I know that I will be healthier.

Good Luck and Keep going
