Dwell in Possibility

"Dwell in Possibility" has been the quote that has kept me going through the past few years of my life. No matter the trial or roadblock, I can always think on the possibility of what my determination to overcome will help to achieve. In visualizing my goals this way, I can do anything!

"Dwell in Possibility" has been the quote that has kept me going through the past few years of my life. No matter the trial or roadblock, I can always think on the possibility of what my determination to overcome will help to achieve. In visualizing my goals this way, I can do anything!

I am 23 years old and a senior in college. Studying Occupational Therapy, I learn a lot about how to help others reach their goals for better quality of life and establishing meaningful, healthy life routines. I think it is time I do the same for myself!

Here are some short term goals that I have set for myself and the reward I am planning when I achieve them. I'm sure just reaching the goal could be motivation enough, but a reward always helps keep the motivation alive :]

Overall goal:
I will lose 15 pounds by October 16th, 2013 in order to feel more confident about my body and have more energy.
Reward: Plan a fall vacation with my boyfriend!

Short term goals:
**Lose 5 pounds by August 9th** Reward: Mani/Pedi :]
COMPLETED 08/4/2013!
**Workout consistently at least 10minutes per day for 5 weeks** Reward: New yoga clothes!
COMPLETED 08/25/2013
**Lose 10 pounds by September 13th** Reward: Haircut!
COMPLETED 08/25/2013
**Run 5k (3.1 miles) without stopping to walk** Reward: New tennies!
COMPLETED 09/03/2013


I will update these as I achieve them and claim my reward. The rewards are a bit arbitrary.. they are things I know I want RIGHT NOW but I'm pushing myself to achieve something before I get them. After all, it's a bit depressing to go clothes shopping when not comfortable looking in the mirror.

So, I have laid out the possibilities of what I can achieve with my goals. Now all that is left is to get out and work toward them! Off I go :)

Updates 8/27/2013:
I'm reaching my weight loss goals pretty quickly so I wanted to set a few more goals for myself that I can strive for even when I reach my current goal weight!

**Complete the 100 Pushups Challenge**
**Do 5 unassisted pull-ups**
**Train for a 10k**
**Workout consistently 10 minutes per day for 3 months (June 2)**

Rewards to be determined at a later date! I'm excited to keep working toward all of my goals :) Woohoo!

Updates 3/2/2014

Well, here I am, back again! I've let some of the weight I lost come back on and now I am working to rebuild the motivation I know that I have in order to finally reach my weight loss goal.

I think this month I will take things slowly and get in 10 minutes of exercise a day (maybe the Spring challenge?) and just focus on eating healthy foods and controlled portions. I need to return my focus to myself, but that will take some work to get back into good habits. Wish me luck :)

My Goals:
*Go from 155 to 140 by April 20, 2014
*Get active and workout at least 10 minutes everyday (consistently!)
*Take my dogs for a walk 2x per week
*Eat lots of fruits and veggies!

My Program:
Right now I am just trying to focus on eating the right thing and getting at least 10 minutes of exercise each day. I am just getting back into the swing of things and don't want to push too hard too fast. This takes time! Once I get the food thing down, I plan on working out 5x per week outside or at the gym for 30+ minutes. I love classes at the gym and workout dvds.

Personal Information:
My name is Aubrey, I'm 23 years old. Originally from Indiana but I currently live in PA for school.

Hey Aubrey!
Thanks so much for stopping by my page, wondering where I was at. Very nice to know someone noticed :)
I was actually on vacation and then after I must admit i've been a bit slow about getting back into the beat of things. But I am now back and here 100%!
I see you had a rough one last week but don't fret it. Lets keep moving forward together!
