I actually set a bunch of goals for myself this year and so I am succeeding with them,I am staying focused on getting completely healed from my hysterectomy so I can resume serious training and get back into the pool and do my 50 laps; I am currently 181 lbs. and just one pound from my goal of 180 for the month of April which is surprising considering that I was in the hospital for three days but I discovered that I gained 10 while in the hospital due to all of the IV liquids going into me and the stuff they put me to sleep with and the pain medication that I was pumping into me through a pump the first 24 hrs.
My Motto: 110% committment is my priority,200% success is my expectation
1) I will limit my Coke intake to only 2 cans a month at MOST.
This is actually pretty big, as I used to drink at the very least 1 can a day, sometimes up to 4. So far, I have resisted temptation and have not had any Coke in the month of January!!!
We in Navy and Marine Corps Wives Team are ambitiously setting our annual goals and resolutions, armed with the greatest intentions to actually keep them.
I want to share with you a little secret...
Most of us will not make it to the end of the year. Yes, I know, this is sad but true. Today is the day when at least 50% of resolutions go down the drain. Most people let them trickle away with a quick nod to their valiant 2-week effort, and quickly move on, lest the shame grow too large. I am not immune to "failed resolution syndrome." Over the years I have failed to accomplish the following resolutions:
Learn another language
Stop drinking so much coffee
Skip dessert at least 3 nights a week
Learn how to Jog
Be on time for everything (or at least something!)
Blah blah blah. You name it, I didn't stick to it.
Well, this is the year. I mean it! it's time. If I can do it, you can do it. I am publicly announcing two resolutions. Yes, this is big. It means that if I don't do them, I can be publicly shamed.
Navy and Marine Corps Wives Resolution #1: I will not talk on my cell phone while driving (texting and reading emails are obviously taboo). It is just too dangerous and I recently saw a movie (to remain unnamed so I don't ruin it for you) that solidified this resolution.
Navy and Marine Corps Wives Resolution #2: I will meet my goal weight
So I challenge all of you to make a RESOLUTION that you will actually stick to. Make it an athletic goal and spark yourself up appropriately and you'll be extra happy. I will check back on January 1, 2010. Until then, enjoy this New Year. It will be what you make it!
So what is your resolution?
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
