New Me in 2012

Thursday, January 05, 2012

So it's the start of a new year and though I've lost 90 pounds I still have more to go. I've decided to start back on SP with tracking my food and exercise. Over the past year I've gotten out of tracking like I should and as a result I haven't lost as much weight as I could. I have lost weight, but not as much as possible. I've decided that this is the year I finally reach my goal. I've lost 90 pounds so far, but I've got 45 more to go.

I'm a goal setter and always have been and as it's the beginning of the year (and semester), I'm reassessing and restating my goals (most people would call these New Year's Resolutions).

So here they are:
1. Get to my goal weight and maintain.
2. Drink at least 8 ounces of water per day.
3. Exercise EVERY DAY (minimum of 10 minutes required).
4. Finish dissertation proposal.
5. Start on dissertation.
6. Find a job in Connecticut.
7. Pass the F.E.
8. Wake up by 7 every morning.

    I love the idea of anyone being a good goal setter. It seems to me that setting a goal for myself triggers some kind of resistance and i start working against myself. So.... I envy that trait in you. My only goal for 2012 is to fight my habit of procrastination. I started today recording my thoughts on that; have not nailed down the best way to approach this life-long bad habit.

    What we DO share is a common love of homemade cookies [I saw your comment in "foods we're afraid of"]. There is no cookie on the market that is a problem for me. If they're baking in someone's kitchen, though.... Katie, bar the door! [An old saying that just popped into my head]

    Many congratulations on your huge weight loss. I have only 35 lbs. to lose, and I can't even seem to get started.
