Resetting My Goals/Preparing for Next Year
Wednesday, December 05, 2007
Well, since I'm closing in on my first goal early (I should hit it or surpass it by next week unless something weird happens), I updated my tracker to include my next goal - reaching 200 by my birthday. Its weird how something little like my tracker changes my outlook...before I was considering maintaining until the end of the year on purpose because I had met my goal. Now, with another 15.8 lbs to go, that seems silly! Why would I stop now? Just goes to show how the little things do matter...
When I do reach my goal I will be right around where I was for the most part in college. I cannot think of a better 29th birthday present than that! I'm hoping that will be another image milestone - I hit one around 240 where my body just looked *different*, and another just recently around 220. At 240 I was able to look through a bunch of pictures and find one or 2 face shots I liked, at 220 I was loving most face shots but all but a few of the body shots still make me cringe. I don't get it...I look in the full length mirror and like what I see, but sometimes the camera just makes me feel like I'm back up at my start weight feeling fatter than ever. Family gifts this year are digital picture frames loaded up with pictures - so we're taking a lot so hopefully some will come out.
I don't want to jinx myself but I'm setting a little internal goal of 210 by the end of the month. It will be a challenge with two weeks of catered lunches and snacks at work, plus extended hours, two weeks of holiday parties and "oh it's just oooonnnneee day you can splurge", and fighting for workout time in between all this - not to mention my family in town for the last week of the month. If I don't make it, I won't freak, but it will keep me on the "loser" mindset so I am careful about what goes in my mouth and how much I move my butt.
Well, I should be working so I should get back to that...go go motivation!
