Aiming from a different angle.

Monday, September 30, 2013

I have been on this site for nearly three years now. (I think. lol) Even with all of the wonderful information, useful tools and amazing support system, I am only down 15 pounds from my highest weight.

Previously, I based my wins and fails on whether I had lost weight that week or not. I had no other goals (well, to be healthier....blah, blah, blah). My whole world seems to revolve around trying to lose weight. It's exhausting and boring.

While I still desire to have a healthy BMI, I'm going to change my focus. I am setting goals for myself for October that have nothing to do with the scale or how much fat I am carrying. I will focus on healthy habits, cleaning/organizing habits, career habits, self pampering habits and fun.
Here it goes:

***October Goals***

~10,000 steps 5 days a week

~10 minutes of "very active" activity (according to Fitbit) 5 days a week

~10 minutes of meditation 5 days a week

~clean out one cabinet, drawer or shelf 5 days a week

~drink 10 glasses of water everyday

~choose the healthiest option available for meals 5 days a week

~take a good long soak in the tub once a week

~make 1 piece of jewelry 5 days a week

~make contact with the person who wanted to see more of my work

~con someone into playing a board game with me once a week

~start planning Christmas gift list

~see what classes are available.....craft, nutrition, exercise or ???????

~make a dental appointment

That will do it for now. I plan to review weekly. Everything on this list is completely doable. I'm ready.

    Good for you. I try to do something constructive each day and some days I do far more. It's easier to undershoot than make too long a list. Hang in there and have a good week.

    Everyone has to find what works for them, you have thought this through very well. Your list of goals are part of a healthy lifestyle. So glad you are not throwing in the towel, keep moving forward. Change things up and keep going.
    I would play a board game with you if I could, and I need to start thinking about christmas too, it always stresses me out getting gifts!!
    Also want to say don't worry, be happy!! We are with you Corena, hugs, Jackie, your buddy!!! emoticon emoticon
