Ready, set, reach those goals!

Monday, November 26, 2012

Ah, it’s time to do some goal setting. I’ve already reached my first mini-weight loss goal, kicked it in it’s butt and have moved on towards other achievements.

I’m raiding my closet of smaller clothes, I finally fit into necklaces again, and even though I’m temporarily injured, I can stand more, walk more and do more without getting winded or needing as many breaks.

It’s a start, but I have a long journey ahead of me, so I thought I’d chart my course.

At first my goals look like they are all business for the most part, and in a way they are. However, the further I go, the more adventure they contain until I reach my ultimate goals.

These small lists are by far not exhaustive and certainly I want to intersperse some fun into the process here and there, but I also wanted to keep these lists of main goals short.

So here they are:

It will probably take at least a couple years before I can achieve all of this, but I know that I can if I stick with it, and I have every intention of doing that. There are even more adventures I'd like to take, but even if I can only do a few on my ultimate goal list, or even just one, I'll be the happiest person I know.

So I guess I'm off now to pursue some goals!

    emoticon What a great goals youhave set for yourself! Your positivity jumps off the screen and is contagious! Another great blog! You really make me smile alot and I love seeing your progress.
    Injuries are temporary set backs and modification of the exercise is good.. I have a wrist injury from doing Yoga.. yes yoga.. I think it was the upside down dog pose and my wrist "pinged" and it's been sore for almost 2 weeks now, so I wear a tensor brace and modify the poses.. it's working so far and the wrist is healing.

    You are amazing.. keep up the good spirit! emoticon

    Have I shared the Goal Enforcer Software with you? It will cost around $40 but well worth it, if you can afford it. I believe it would be very beneficial to you as you start this journey toward your goals.

    They have kayaks now called a sit-upon. No part of you is enclosed. Probably not for open water or whitewater. When we started buying them for our student program (middle school) we couldn't tip them over. That was the first thing we had to do, and the kids had to right them and get back in before they could leave the staging area. Well, the adults couldn't flip them over. So when it warms up enough to kayak, do it. It's wonderful exercise!! and fun.

    If you keep your goals in front of you and read them every morning, what will be on your short list. If you read through this LIST, it will take you an hour when you could be moving. Hint: Think of some as a goal to get to somewhere in the future. Others might be steps in an action plan-the little practices or habits you establish to make your goals happen. Still others might be rewards (like going kayaking, or buying a kayak!!

    you can do it....
    it always takes longer than we hope for but in the end it is worth it.....

    if you need any support I'm here, read my story on my spark page....I have lost over 200 pounds, and have kept most of it off for 3 years now....
    I gained 10 pounds back and an fighting to get it off again... this is a life long journey so once you loose the weight you still have to work even harder to keep it off...

    you have good goals and we are here to help you every ounce of the way

    You have inspired me to rethink and break down my goals better. I like the way you have broken them down into to many steps.

    I completely understand the frustration of injuries---- I started out with the plantar faciatis. I upped the resistance level on my recumbant bike (I looooovvveee mine too!) too fast and now my knee hurts. So I am backing off on the resistance. Sometimes, it seems like one step forward and two steps back --- but I figure at least it is steps somewhere!!!

    The chair exercises sound like a great alternative and they are quite challenging.

    Keep up the work!!
