this week 3/10- 3/16

Sunday, March 10, 2013

I did really well last week with reaching my goals. So this week i am keeping those goals and adding a few more. I hope I will be as well this week. I am not adding tons because I know this week is going to be crazy so I don't want to be defeated before I start.


Eating Goal:
Track everything I eat Sun, Mon,Tue.wed. thur, fri
Eat healthy snacks. Mon, wed, thur, fri

Exercise Goal:
Exercise 30 minutes 6 times a week, Mon, Tue, Wed, fri
Walk 8000 steps a day, Mon, tue, wed, fri

Spiritual Goal:
Have a quiet time everyday( 15 minutes a day) Sun, Mon, Tue, wed, thur, fri

Other Goals:
Work on decluttering my desk (5 to 10 minutes a day) Mon, Tue

I feel very motivated right now.

I also lost 1 pound this last week so I am on a roll.

    SUCCESS,
The Mon after the goals are the days i did that goal Like I will add Tue and Wed after I do them. Kind of a check to see how I am doing. i was thinking i should add a new goal or two each week? Do you think that is to much?

You would stick to 5 for six week then pick new ones and do you still keep the old ones? I guess it is hard to pick just 5. There is so much in my life I want to change. It is very hard to be patient.

    It works doesn't it, having a few goals that you know you will get done instead of a big stack of goals that you won't. Your new goals still seem reasonable, its basically only 5 things (which to my way of thinking, is ENOUGH!!).

I don't understand the "Mon" at the end of the goals though--is that what you got done today (sorry my question mark key doesn't work--I have to use a period).

But basically you have 5:
1) track everything
2) eat healthy snacks
3) exercise 30 minutes
4) track steps walked and hit 8k
5) quiet time everyday
oh and
6) de-cluttering

Well, that's still not too bad. Me, I would drop one of them and stick with the 5--you know it works and you can do it. Plus I would stick with my 5 for six weeks then pick 5 new ones. That way you KNOW you have them down as habits before moving on. I'm a fan of small to-do lists =)

this week 3/3 to 3/9

Monday, March 04, 2013

Yesterday I wrote out my March goals and someone said that was a lot of goals and she is right. i looked back over Jan. and Feb. goals and I realized I haven't done very well with them. I think they are good goals and something I can do but I need to break it down even more, so I am going week by week. I am going to concentrate on 1 goal from each group.



Eating Goal:
Track everything I eat Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thur, Fri. Sat

Exercise Goal:
Exercise 30 minutes 6 times a week Sun, Mon, Tue, Thur, Fri, Sat

Spiritual Goal:
Have a quiet time everyday( 15 minutes a day) Sun, Mon, Wed,Thur, Fri, Sat

Other Goals:
Work on decluttering my desk (5 to 10 minutes a day)Fri, sat

I hope this helps. I feel very motivated right now.

    Now this sounds like realistic goals, and I know you will do better than you did in January and February. I used to do that too, every year at New Years I'd make dozens of goals for the year and every year I wouldn't accomplish much (sometimes not anything).

But then I heard this saying "If you chase 2 rabbits, both will get away" and I took it to heart. I realized that I was chasing dozens of rabbits. So last year, I had one resolution: Build my self esteem. And each month I did just 2 things, all month. Then next month (while still doing the 2) I would add 2 more. By the end of the year I had completed 2 dozen tasks!!

This year, my only goal is to get fit, and I have been faithfully exercising and eating healthy.

My 5 goals for this 6-week period are:
1) a blue smoothie and a green one, each day
2) eat 12 freggies (and the smoothies count towards this)
3) Sarah Conners pull up workout 3x week
4) C25K 3x week
5) study Chinese half an hour each day.

We can do it!!

where oh where has my motivation gone?

Monday, February 11, 2013

I had such good intention in the beginning of Feb. but somewhere or somehow my motivation up and left me. My exercising took a walk with my food tracking right out the door. They must be enjoying life because they have not returned. So my challenge is to find them again. I am not sure how that is suppose to happen. I know all the tricks like start slow, change one thing at a time,and just do it. In my mind I have good intentions but to put the actions with the thoughts. That is where I am finding it hard to do. I am not totally giving up. I have just had set backs big ones. It takes more than a desire to lose weight and right now all I seem to have is the desire. Oh how I wish I could just make myself move and track and stop putting food in my mouth

    There comes a point where you have to decide if you want to be healthy and lose weight or not. Then do what it takes, motivated or not. Thats where I am right now, I'm just going to have to suck it up and do it, like quitting smoking. Whether or not I "feel" it.

    So you're maintaining for the moment. That's good, it lets your body accustom itself to the changes it has been going through, and when it has done this, you will find the motivation will come back with renewed vigour. Just accept, tread water a while, and wait.

    Call it the winter blogs. Think about summer and how you want to look. Set a goal a small one. Set one for just a week. It is not just a desire to lose weight. It is a passion. You have to make it happen. I get down all the time when my scale don't move ,but I keep going, some times I change things up. I get bored with the same thing. Maybe you need to change up to something that excites you. I think spring will put a bigger spark in me. Good Luck. Have a great day. Find your passion. emoticon

    I understand, once you lose your motivation its hard to get back going. What I think about is my skinny jeans I have hanging in my closet. I hope your "motivation & exercise come knocking at your door soon.
