Goals for 2014

Saturday, January 04, 2014

My goals for 2014 are quite simple. That being said...they always seem hard to maintain. But here I am again, trying to lose the weight. So far I seem to be on the right path. I am glad I started on here again as I definitely need the support.

My #1 goal is obviously to lose weight. The 'whys' are different now than in the past. My blood pressure is high, so obviously health is the #1 reason as to why I want to lose weight. But with the weight loss comes more energy, more self esteem and more years to enjoy my grandchildren.

I also want to start exercising more. But exercising to me is probably quite different than other people's opinion of it. I just want to move more, walk more, dance more, enjoy life more.

Lastly, I want to eat healthier. I like my wine and love my food. But have always had a hard time doing anything in moderation. I am at a time in my life, that I am going to try to do everything in moderation. One glass of wine instead of three. One portion of food, instead of two.

These are my goals for 2014...I have been on this journey many times. This time, I am hoping to not lose the weight by a certain date, but I'm just going to go with the flow, moderation, healthy eating, and moving and along with that will come weight loss.

    I love your goals. They make perfect sense to me! In fact, so much sense I just might steal them! emoticon

    Do it one day at a time and you will get there.
    Doing exercise for the fun of doing exercise is great.
    I started by doing zumba and I love it! I never did it to burn calories but because it was fun and I've been at it for 2 years with consistency.
    Find something you love to do and it won't be a chore.

    I wish you good health for 2014 and the will power to maintain it for many years to come. For me saying that I am going to "try" and do something sets me up for failure. I tried, I failed, I give up. Now I establish a goal and set a REASONABLE time in which to achieve it.. By doing this I allow myself a "cushion" so to speak where I can count this as a rest stop on the way to success. I check out my motivational collage, remind myself why I am doing this, then get off my butt and get moving forward again. emoticon
