2011 Yearly Goals

Friday, January 14, 2011

I had meant to do this before now, but...AND I have been thinking about it, but...

So, here goes. First, let me say that it's harder than you'd think because I've started over so many every year, every month, every day! I always have good intentions...that sort of peter out before I've reached my goal. So that now I'm gun shy of making any goals at all. It just doesn't seem to work for me. I've tried long term, streaks, name it. Now, I just get up every day and try my best to make good, healthy choices, don't get down on myself when I don't, and start over again the next day. Of course, I lose weight for a while, then gain it back.

However, in line with the idea of Goals for this year. The big general one is to lose weight. To do that I would like to increase my exercise...make it more consistent to begin with. What's got me revved up right now is "10,000 steps/day." So, that's Goal 1. Right now, I do about 600 steps (dedicated)/day. I figured out that it would take me 50 min. to do 10,000. So, my goal is to increase from the 3 min. I'm doing now to the 50 min. I need. How about I increase by 2 min. per week? That would be 400 steps more per week.

In terms of food...Goal 2 is to eat fast food less. Right now I eat about 5 meals per week. That's almost 1 a day!!! So, I'd like to get down to only 1 a week....say in 5 months.

In the mean time, I'll continue logging on to SP and doing all I do on-line, on Teams, etc. I'm thinking these two goals would improve my life a lot...and give me some confidence to make other goals.

    I'm thinking I agree - there will be huge changes in your life, and those will help motivateyou further.
    Fast food - is there a need to eat it - or is it a habit??
    If there is a really good reason - then please think carefully about your choices, if its just a habit - then habits can be broken!! It really is possible to live without fast food!!
