BLC 22 Goals

Make it Count and Make it Epic!

So many auspicious goals that I’ve read from other BLC members in the past few days. My head is spinning.

Makes for lots of ideas.

I think I need to use the KISS principle because if I don’t, I will become overwhelmed and spin out of control early and feel like a failure and that is not at all what I want to do.

I know that many people will read and that people look to our blogs as an example to follow and aspire to....

I recommend you follow your head and your heart and keep your goals S.M.A.R.T. and doable for YOU!

What may look like a ginormous list of goals for 12 weeks to some for me is truly MOSTLY an adaptation and putting it out there of things I already have MOSTLY successfully incorporated into my life one baby step at a time some have become habit and some still need reinforcement.

I want every day of my life to be meaningful in some small way. I want to leave a footprint to be remembered by. THAT is a goal of mine.

I don’t aspire to be skinny.

I aspire to be fit and healthy. Some of you know that I have some pretty significant health issues so you may wonder why I say I aspire to be healthy when that isn’t possible. I also believe in dreaming even if it’s the impossible dream. Sure, I have some blips in my DNA and some health issues that cannot be changed, but that doesn’t mean I cannot aspire every single day to beat the clock toward some of the health concerns that many if not most succumb to right?

When I found out I was a pre-diabetic, it was a HUGE wake up call.

I couldn’t change my DNA that causes blood clots but I sure as heck could change my eating habits and my fitness habits and turn around my propensity to become like both of my parents and be a Type I or Type II diabetic and guess what? I DID. So when I say we CAN and we WILL ad nauseum all the flippin’ time guess what? We CAN and we WILL if we stick to our GOALS cuz I am NOT taking meds and I am NOT giving myself shots and it is two years post facto to being given this diagnosis. I am a Red Rider riding with diabetes and this is a fact that I am not ashamed to admit but I am not going to succumb to it as long as I CAN control it!

I challenge you and I implore you to be the kick in the okole I need. When I whine and fuss about loving me some carbs - remind me that I also love me some healthy living and I DO! This morning I saw on a friend's goals blog that she is giving up bread 6 days a week and I smiled - this is a HUGE goal for some - others will see it and wonder "What's the big deal." We each have our own cross to bear so to speak.

So here I am committing for the next twelve weeks of being a better, fitter, finer, healthier, ME and to helping you be the very same. We’re in this together!

I commit to getting back to goal cuz one again I'm over a bit from my original and a good bit from where I WAS because....::::drum roll::: I FEED MY EMOTIONS. I ACT LIKE FOOD IS MY BFF.
I commit to streaking for 12 weeks and loving it!
I commit to doing one thing on my summer bucket list every single week of this BLC.
I commit to continuing my love of and commitment to a meal plan and preparation of healthy, creative and clean foods 80/20 5 of 7 nights a week MINIMUM.
I commit to 10,000 steps a day 5 of 7 days a week MINIMUM.
I commit to working out 5 of 7 days a week MINIMUM more than 20 minutes and 7 days a week 20 minutes - Strength training is going to keep me YOUNG!
I commit to pursuing my dream of being a personal coach baby step by baby step and not letting anything deter me. Measurable steps are those I am taking in my monthly Challenge groups on FB and that I am stepping out on faith and going to the Beachbody summit in Las Vegas. Bring it!
I commit to being present in and around the BLC 7 days a week posting meaningful comments on pages, blogs and our team.
I commit to recommitting to my relationship with my sweetie in meaningful ways this summer when we have alone time and reconnecting.
I commit to giving back to my community in meaningful ways and seeking out new ways to do so and sharing forward.
I commit to a 5K a month in June/July/August
First and foremost I commit to loving ME and caring for ME! emoticon
