Thursday Three -- Rethinking Your Goals

Over at the Sisterhood we are looking back to January of this year and checking in to see how we are doing with our goals we set for ourselves. Check out the post here to find out all about it. I know that this year has gone NOTHING like I had planned it but I thought I should look back at what I had hoped to accomplish and see what has gone right even amongst the trials I have gone through.
Here is the letter I wrote myself in January.

Three things I had hoped to accomplish this year...

1) Weighing in at 150 pounds by the end of the summer....NOT gonna happen. In fact, just yesterday I bounced back up to 200 pounds. Gotta get serious about his weight loss thang again. No better time the present, right??!!

2) The whole family eating right and exercising...Gotta say we haven't been stellar in this area either. Time to start refocusing. Fixing healthy meals, and finding time to exercise are VITAL to our family.

3) I had mentioned being off all medication by the end of the year...Well I am half way there. I no longer need medication for High blood pressure, which under the circumstances of this year I would say is a pretty GREAT accomplishment.

Now to just get the rest of my goals figured out. Working 3rd shift is tougher than I ever imagined, but I am determined to make the best of a bad situation. I'm hoping to no longer be working sometime this fall, but in the mean time I have decided to try joining the gym again and taking That Other Kid with me so he can play while I work out. This should help both of us tremendously since he is BORED and lonely and I am lethargic and FAT!! Gotta change both these things!

So how are you doing on your goals?? Hopefully better than me!

The most important thing is that you haven't given up, Ann. Lots of people in your situation would just say 'screw it', but you aren't! You're looking for ways to meet your goals, even in the worst of situations, and you should be proud of yourself!

You can do this, and I know you will be successful!
