8 Wk Battle Day 1- Goals

Monday, October 18, 2010

Well 8 wk. Battle 10 is starting and again it’s time to set the goals. This is always so hard for me and I am pretty sure I have never met not even one of the goals I have set for myself in the other battles. I am not sure if I am setting myself up to fail by the amount of goals that I set or if I just have never really tried, but either way this time HAS to be different. At the start of each battle I’ve really thought that I was ready and focused and going to stick with it, but seems a week later I have given up… I need to find what has caused me to give up so it doesn’t happen with this battle. I believe planning is a huge part of my problem, but even if I do plan seems for some reason or another the plan get’s thrown out the window.
So, I guess with that said I will stick with it this time. I have to prove to myself that I can put my mind to something and accomplish it. I will not look back in 8 weeks and think, man I wasted 8 more weeks like I have too many times before.

I will keep my calories between 1200-1500 daily
I will put forth an effort to actually work out at least 3 days a week (3 hours).
If I can’t make it the gym in the morning I will still find a way to be active in the evening and not just let the day pass without any form of exercise.
I will not think that just because I made one bad choice that I can throw away the rest of the day.
I am pretty good at drinking 64oz of water each day so I will keep up with that and try for more each day.
I will start taking my multi vitamin every day after lunch or before bed.
I will track my foods, measure my foods and be honest about them good or bad!
I will blog more about the day, my choices and how I am feeling.
I will try to only weigh myself on Fridays. I tend to weigh in too often and it becomes discouraging.
I will check in with my Red team daily.

I think that might be all for now… I hope these goals are specific enough and attainable. I really don’t see any reason why I can’t achieve these goals and because of that I will reach these goals and be proud of where I am when these 8 weeks are up. I will be posting before measurements and pics later this evening so until then, Battle On!
