My goals for BLC 22

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

I am reluctant to write goals because I have not been successful with accomplishing my goals. It would be easy to just skip this step! I realize that whether I accomplish what I set out to do or not is really not the point of the goals. The goals are those just out of reach things that I will strive for in an effort to get to a point other than where I am. So with this in mind, here are my goals:

1. Track food daily
2. Drink water, 6-8 8 oz glasses daily
3. Exercise for 20 minutes 5X per week (broken into 2-10 minute sessions if necessary)
4. Plan a menu weekly and shop

I also need to spend time while on vacation eliminating clutter in the house I will spend 30 minutes a day, 4 days a week working on clutter.

The easiest of these goals is probably the water but even that is not a simple thing as I tend to put off getting the water until I finish this task or that... The result is not enough water consumed daily. While I am on vacation, I will keep a container (32 oz) filled and carried around with me. My back, hip, sciatica issues? I have allowed this to keep me from moving. It was a coincidence or not that the site posted the chair exercise summary on the start page. If that all I can do then that's what I'll do. I see the doctor on June 20th to review the MRI findings.

I need to keep my head out of the sand and focus on my actions.

    We should talk! We have so much in common! I also have back problems, (along with other disabilities) I can't do strenuous exercise, but I have had success with some chair exercise. I have a great deal of trouble getting around and I get down about it!
    I have a "clutter" issue in my apartment too! I have a hard time keeping up with it because of the mobility issues! And I get down about that too!

    Your goals are great! Don't stress yourself out by trying to accomplish everything at once! Work on one issue at a time and before you know it you will have new habits! I can relate to all you have said and one of the things that has helped me the most is coming here to SparkPeople!
    There is so much support here! The people are great and they motivate me to keep trying!
    Good Luck on your DR appointment and on your goals! If you need support, feel free to ask! emoticon emoticon

    Good goals ! Water isn't an easy one for me either. I am amazed by people that can drink over 100 oz of water a day.
