Accomplished Goals in November & December Goals & Ultimate Goals

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Happy Wednesday! I am in a pretty good mood today (although I have another dumb headache!)

I got a great idea from reading Snevil's blog - she has a chart showing how much weight she lost each month over the last year. I used this awesome idea to give myself my new Big Goal Weight Deadline! I lost about 42 pounds since January. I slacked off a lot from March to July. After I broke up with my ex in June, I focused on me a lot more in July! It seems to get harder and harder to lose.. but I am not giving up!

****Month vs Pounds Lost****
Aug--- 3

I am at 164lbs right now. November is not over yet, but I am going to guess I will be at 3-4 pounds lost for this month. If I continue to lose 3 pounds each month... I should be at 155 by the end of Feb!!! I may have to push really hard, but I might be able to do it!

I used the measuring tape in October & also a few days ago. I could be doing it wrong - but it seems to be ok for now at least!!

****Oct vs Nov****
Upper Arm--12--12

****Accomplished November Goals****
- Did every weighin & team challenge the best I could!
- Used the measuring tape
- Bumped up my protein every day & in range most days this month!
- Did a 5K turkey trot on my own in 38:22
- Did not eat any french fries! Dec 1st will be 10 weeks with no fries!
- Lost 3 Pounds
- Became a Spark Motivator!!
- Went to a craft fair
- Spent time relaxing every day by myself
- Saved some money
- Stood up for myself & continued to stay positive

****My December Goals****
- Weigh 161 by December 31st
- Get at least two 5K training sessions in a week outside or on treadmill
- Watch Spark Videos or Zumba Videos or go to Zumba at least twice a week
- Continue using the measuring tape at least twice a month
- Don't eat tortilla chips for 4 weeks
- 5K on December 8th. Hopefully I get under 36 minutes
- Try 4 new Spark Recipes
- Create 3 Healthy Side Dishes/Desserts for Christmas dinner
- Stay committed to the Jingle Challenge once it starts
- Aim for 1,000 fitness minute trophy for December!
- Continue to do non-workout activities I enjoy even if I go alone(craft & pet fairs)
- Try to stay patient with my parents even when they are on the fritz!
- Don't get discouraged if I don't reach all of my goals!

***Ultimate Goals***
- Be at healthy weight (155) by March 1, 2013!
- Be at 100 pounds lost & weigh 150pounds - no deadline
- Complete any 5K in 30 minutes - no deadline

I have a lot planned for the holidays - On Christmas day, I help my Mom cook everything. I also help clean the house before & after! I don't have much shopping left, but I will have a lot to do the weekend before Christmas. I am making home-made Hot Chocolate mix & dipped chocolate spoons to give to my family members. I usually bake cookies or muffins or give them Something instead of just a card. I like being creative =) I also have two Christmas Parties. I need to figure out something to bring to the one. The other is my work party. I am a little nervous about it, because I don't know a lot of political things. My work gets the Wall Street Journal every day, but I don't read any of it. I am not an accountant, and I don't follow the news too much. Hopefully it won't be too bad, but I am still nervous about it. Everyone is so nice, but there will be clients there who I don't know! I always get worked up over silly things sometimes!

Even though I have a lot to give, I can't forget about myself! I have changed so much for the better. I have lost 86 pounds so far, and I feel amazing! Thank you again to everyone who has supported me!

    Truly inspiring! I've realized lately that I need to focus and define what my goals are-short term and long term and reading this has motivated me to do just that. I'm aiming to finish mine by tomorrow. Thank you for the motivation and I can't wait to read about how you've accomplished your December goals. =D

    You are a shining example here on Spark People, Kimpy! Well done with your goals--both November's and your long term goals over the last months.
    Excellent goals for December. Look forward to reading about your successes at the end of December because I know you'll do it.

    You are so amazing !! Way to go girl !! You've accomplished so much this year. I like you being so specific about your goals. You only got just short of 14 pounds to go, and according to your calculation and causation, by the next spring time you will meet your goal. That will be fantastic. Even if not, you've gained so much experiences and confidence plus became healthy. Your attitude and effort will help you get there. I am so proud of you. Also, 10 weeks with out fries is a wow factor !! I can go with out only a 6 weeks.Lol)) (^o^)
    Good luck on your 5k training.

    Great set of goals. Use the confidence you have gained through your success here to get you through your company party. Just be yourself and do not worry about what you think you do not know. Good luck.

    What is the Jingle Challenge? Is it with a team and can a new person join? OH, meant to say this first..... You are amazing! Awesome work in so many areas of your life! And, don't worry about the work party. If you don't know what to talk about, always, always, always ask the person about their selves! People love to talk about themselves, so ask if they have a pet or do they do 5Ks..... Just ask about them and you can stay away from politics! Smile and be yourself and you will be great!
