Goal Setting

Friday, September 06, 2013

I joined the BLC 23 Team. As part of the team challenge, I am asked to set forth my goals for the 12 week challenge. Goals that I can do within the 12 weeks.

My OVERALL goal is to enjoy a more healthy and active lifestyle.

For this 12 week challenge, my SPECIFIC goal is to weigh less than 200 pounds and no longer be deem pre-diabetic. That is about 2.5 pounds a week from my starting weight.

I will be able to MEASURE my progress towards a healthier lifestyle by the weight loss and by losing the pre-diabetic diagnosis.

I believe that this goal is ATTAINABLE if:

I do cardio activity at least 30 minutes a day - 5 times a week.
Strength train at least 15 minutes a day - 3 times a week.

Stop binge/emotional eating of sugary and salty snacks and eat planned snacks when physically hungry. Recognize when I am tired, bored, lonely and find a nonfood solution.

Track my meals daily for accountability to myself.

Acknowledge nonscale victories, particularly when the scale is not my friend.

Check in daily with the team and fully participate in all challenges.

These are my before pictures:

    Great goals! I have one concern, that you are setting your weight loss goals a bit high under the Spark recommendations. Would you consider setting your goal at two pounds a week and then being delighted if you lost more? The Spark way of setting smaller goals and building on them is so powerful. Also, I have juvenile diabetes; diabetes is a rotten disease and I think the goal of backing away from becoming diabetic is OUTSTANDING. If you achieved nothing but that, you'd be the Biggest Winner. Best of luck to you. emoticon
