A new look
Monday, May 17, 2010
I am faced with taking a new look at my goals and seeing if I can better express what my goals are.
I cannot just say "I need to lose weight to better my health." I need to say something like..."I will lose weight so my sugar doesn't freak my doctor out anymore." Taking a blood test 45 minutes after eating an entire box of SUDDENLY SALAD was a STUPID thing to do!
I cannot just say "I want to walk upstairs to my apartment without being winded just once!" I need to say something like... "Within the next month, I will have lost 10 pounds and I will be able to walk up the stairs of my apartment without feeling like my chest is going to blow up!"
I cannot just say "I need more sleep." I need to say something like..."I will go to bed EVERY night at 11 pm. And I will sleep no longer than 20 minutes during the day."
These are more achievable goals. They are more specific to my problems and my needs. I can break these goals down into daily or weekly steps for achieving them. This gives me more focus on what I want to accomplish. These are health goals and not life goals, but these will do for a start.
More to come.....
