A New Month = New Goals!

Monday, July 01, 2013

I haven't been very good about updating my goals, and I think that's caused my focus to slip slightly. So, here are some SMART goals for July, 2013.

Weight loss: -6.5 pounds (188 lbs)
That may be a little ambitious, and it's not completely under my control. I will work hard to get there, but I won't completely freak out if I'm a little shy of this goal.

Nutrition: Eat within calorie range every day (do NOT go below). Eat at least middle of the range 3 days per week and near the top of the range one of those days.

Fitness: Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 DVD 5-6 times per week
Strength Training 3 days per week
Cardio 5-6 days per week

Scale: I'm still trying decide how to approach this one. I think for now, I'll
allow daily weighing and revise if it's affecting my progress or

Blog: At least once a week

Try one new food or recipe a week

At least one cardio session/week needs to be something other than walk or walk/jog

I still need to come up with a reward for meeting my goals (and to determine if I need to do 100% or let myself have a little wiggle room). I noticed that I completely stopped caring about my weight-based rewards. I can't remember the last one that I actually took. I have allowed myself to get more new clothes than I think I had listed, though, so it all evens out.

    Those all sound pretty realistic and reasonable. You can do it! I am going to follow your example and set a few goals for myself for this month. emoticon emoticon
