Some Goals To Rethink My Shrink.....

Today's assignment for the Sisterhood is to set up 3 goals. I can't say I'll try! I have to COMMIT!! This is very difficult for me! I'm putting myself on the line...I'm saying "I WILL" and since I'm posting it on my blog, I'm putting it out there for the whole world to see....even my dh and oldest son!! AGH!!

I've taken a good part of today to think about what I want my goals to be over the next 7 weeks. I want them to be attainable, but challenging enough that I have to work at.

I'm also supposed to decide on a reward for myself. My reward for this 7 weeks will be some new workout clothes! I'm really going to need them if I make my goals. Some of my clothes are really start to BAG OFF from me!! I haven't bought any new workout clothes since I started working out and I've lost around 35 pounds!!

So...Here are my 3 goals...

1) I WILL lose at least 10 pounds --

2) I WILL eat at least 5 servings of fruits/veggies a day, EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!!

3) I WILL clean something up EVERY DAY!! Now...you may think that's a pretty goofy goal and totally unrelated to my weight loss journey, but you would be wrong! There are times when my house is so cluttered I CAN'T focus on anything but the clutter and messes! We are now living in a much smaller place and I HAVE TO BE ORGANIZED or it's really hard to move around!

So...there you have it, my goals and my reward! Can't wait to hear what your goals are!!

Great goals, and an awesome reward, Ann!! When my house (which is tiny, too) is cluttered, it's hard for me to focus, so I understand that goal completely!!

Hope you have a great NEW YEAR!!!

*When* you make your goals, Ann, *when*! Not *if*! Sounds like a great plan! And I must confess, when my house is in disarray I have a hard time ignoring it to go get my workkout in. Organization is key!

Great goals, Ann! I can relate to the clutter issue, too. In the past few years I've gone from being married and living in a 2000 sq foot house to being divorced and living in a 700 sq ft apartment. One of my goals for 2010 is to get rid of three things every day either through recycling, giving it away, or throwing it away.

Can you pick up my house every day too? I can't wait to see you lose 10lbs this challenge.

I am so proud of you for making a goal that's not directly related to weight loss. That's awesome that you recognize that such an unrelated outside force can have a direct impact on your efforts. That's real insight, Ann!
