Updated Goals

Sunday, April 21, 2013

I've made no secret that I'm following the Weight Watchers plan/Spark People since February. Lately, I've been doing the "Weight Watchers Waltz". Up two pounds--Down 3 lbs.-- Up 2.5 lbs--Down 1.5 lbs. I've been having terrible problems with my stomach and other related areas. I'm also not moving as much as I want to or SHOULD. Time to revise my goals. I've realized that I don't have a good enough blend of long term and short term goals. I need variety, and I need somewhat instant gratification. Losing 140 lbs will take time.

Short Term (Things to do daily or weekly):

Dedicate myself to intentional exercise DAILY. Could be 90 minutes.....could be 10 minutes. Just make sure my body gets moving and keeps moving.

Get back to tracking everything. I fall off and get back on the wagon way too much. Need to just suck it up and stay on the wagon. I need to know what's going into my body.

Drink 12 glasses of water per day. I feel much better when I do this.

Mid-Term (1-4 months):

Complete another round of C25K in preparation for the 5k's I've signed up for this summer.

Continue to purge unnecessary household items. Clutter leads me down a dark road.

Enjoy the summer veggies and make them the center of my meal with meat as a "side dish"

Somewhat Long Term: (4 months-1 year)

Attempt a 10k on Thanksgiving Day

Take some baking classes (I'd love to get good with pastry)

Sprint Triathlon

Ultimate Goals--

I want the ability to shop at J Crew. I love their clothes and want to wear them and look GOOD doing it.

I want to wear a bikini. I've never worn one. More than just wearing it, I'd like the confidence to ROCK IT!

I'd like food choices to get easier. I'd like to feel less tempted by junk.

    when looking for the instant gratification goals is a major problem because when you do not achieve them there are major let downs, if you set them keep them simple ie water, fruit or vegie servings, exercise 5 days per week etc. those are achievable goals and if you miss one on a day it will not be major set backs.
    i do like your short and long term goals you are setting you can achieve them all and i am glad to see your doing c25k again to prep for your races and remember if you have to repeat some weeks so be it, i have done it also.

    by the way no attempting a 10k, you WILL complete your first 10k even if you have to walk a few times, YOU CAN DO THIS!
