This used to be titled "such an experiment" and I realize now I can't think about it that way. This is what I want, this is my dream for myself, and I can do this.

This is my 3rd account on SP, my 3rd try. Third time's a charm.

I've begun creating the time in my life I need to reach these goals. Now that I'm finally done with overtime at my main job and beginning to work my second job in a way that doesn't bog me down twice a month (instead breaking it into little chunks) I'm having full evenings where I run out of things I want to do. Time was so scare a few weeks ago and now I feel like I'm finally materializing it out of thin air.

Each time I begin an account at SP, I think about what kind of goal I'm going to set. Sometimes I don't set a goal, and that helps for a few weeks until I start to lose my motivation. Other times I've set a goal for months and months in the future, and I find that after a month or two, maybe even three on my longer stretches, I start to feel the progress is fading.

So that's what I'm doing now. I'm setting monthly goals. I'm not going to focus on the "long run", because it seems to far away. I think my main goal being smaller steps will help.

My Goals:


My Program:
My goal is to get to the gym at least three times a week, hopefully more, since it's summer I want to be in the pool and outside a lot! Trying to stay away from the couch!

I want to stop snacking so frequently and I want to stop eating after 9pm.



Personal Information:
My name is Megan, I live in Des Moines, WA and work out at LA Fitness, usually at the Federal Way or Kent location.

I work both from home and in an office doing bookkeeping/marketing and receptionist work. It's stressful sometimes, but working from home a few days a week is totally worth it!

    Good morning. I hope yesterday was a good day for you. Keep it up. Trust me I know how challenging it can be. So far I've got the eating healthy part down. I still haven't gotten the exercise daily part done. But I'm working on it. One step at a time. emoticon

    Welcome to the depression team.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again! So keep trying and trying that is a lot of the times what success is.
    I read something about a president, Abraham Lincoln I think, who tried to run for different offices repeatedly before becoming president.

    Lincoln's road to the white house:
    Failed in business in 1831
    Defeated for legislature in 1832
    Second failure in business in 1833
    Suffered a nervous breakdown in 1836
    Defeated for speaker in 1838
    Defeated for elector in 1840
    Defeated for congress in 1843
    Defeated for senate in 1855
    Defeated for vice president in 1856
    Defeated for senate in 1858
    Elected president in 1860
    The Complete Book of Sensible Sayings and Wacky Wit by Vern McLellan.
    I would have given up way before getting elected unless there is some successes that is conveniently not quoted here. Yet, it still is an example of why we must keep trying and never give up.
