New Year's Goals
I wasn't sure I would lose this week, because I didn't track very well. I had a surprise when my new nephew was born early -- not a huge shock as his brother was also born early -- and I went to visit him, his mom, and his big brother. I also had a late Christmas with my inlaws, including houseguests. It's a nice thing to have lost. I did manage to only miss two planned workouts, which I think was doing very well considering all the excitement.
Rather than leaving things up to chance, however, I have some new year's plans. I don't want to set a huge resolution for the whole year that will get broken almost immediately. I'm breaking it down per Fat 2 Fit Radio's suggestions into daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals.
Yearly goal: At this time next year, I would like to be maintaining at goal.
Monthly goal: Make my first 5 pound star on or before my meeting on February 1.
Intermediate goals: 5% by the end of March. 10% by the end of May. Goal by the end of June.
Weekly goal: My leader asked us to track diligently this week and show her our trackers next week. That seems like a great weekly goal to me. Aim to lose 1 pound a week.
Daily goals: Track my food. Stay within my daily points plus earned activity points. Check off all of my Good Health Guidelines. Get at least 20 minutes of activity every day. Eliminate negative self-talk and focus on success.
Are you setting goals for the new year? Or are you still making resolutions?
