When you Miss a Goal

Thursday, August 29, 2013

I set a goal I was to meet by August 20th - my plan was to lose 5 pounds emoticon . I didn't get it done. emoticon

So where does that leave me? Well, it's easy to get discouraged, we all know that. It's easy to just.... emoticon At least it was easy to do that in the past before I truly began my healthy journey. Something like this would have been just enough to derail me. "I give up," would have come so easily. But not anymore.

Now I evaluate what just happened. And I tweak my goal, keeping in mind where I struggled before (a trip, houseguests, etc.) and I set a NEW goal - 4 more pounds by September 20th! Later today I'm going to plan things out a little more but that's the emoticon

OK, that's set. Now where am I today? On track with calorie intake, on track with exercise (and I even threw in some light gardening in ), and in a pretty good place emotionally. It's a good day for new goals! emoticon

    It's very discouraging when a goal is missed - I've done that a few times myself. I give you credit for regrouping and moving forward - that's EXACTLY the right thing to do. emoticon

Good luck with you're new goal emoticon emoticon
