Finally nailed down my goals

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Been doing Spark since March and have been struggling to lose weight. I decided I wanted to read the Spark so ordered it and it finally arrived. As I was reading it I realized that although I was doing everything suggested on the web version I left some critical pieces undone or half done. Number 1 thing was MY GOALS!!!! Hello Angel, how can you keep motivated if you don't know what you're working for besides losing 50 pounds. I never really thought hard about what my actual goals were until I read how to think about and set goals. I was focused on whatever came to mind in that moment instead of really digging deep to find what motivates me, where I want to be in life, and what is most important to me. so here it is:

short term:
1)complete 28 day Spark plan.
2)commit to exercise 5 of 7 days p/w during this 28 days
3)track EVERYTHING I eat on a daily basis.

mid term:
1)get new doctor, continue any further testing necessary
2)complete budget plan on SP

long term:
1)lose 50 pounds
2)investigate work in community outreach (teens/young adults who are at risk for or currently abuse drugs and/or alcohol)
3)plan a trip to Ocean City, Maryland and GO!!!!!

I'm putting my vision collage EVERYWHERE!!!!!

    Those sound like terrific goals! Now write them down anywhere and everywhere so you are reminded of them at all time! Post them everywhere around your house - the fridge, your computer, your bathroom mirror.

    Keep them close to your heart and mind and you WILL reach your goals!! Way to go!
