"Goals give you the ability to be self-directed and in control"


This is something I am HORRIBLE at. I write them down. I don't always concentrate on achieving them. By writing them down, reading them, visualizing them, and making a real effort to achieve them ... that will lead to success.

My goals, while a little lofty, to be achieved by January 9, 2010 are:

  • lose 15 pounds

  • wear a size 12

  • Lose 3" off my tummy

  • reduce my caffeine intake to espresso only

How's it going so far (did I mention these have been my goals for the past 6 months?):

  • the scale is not my friend ... but muscle weighs a lot more than fat so I the proof is in the pudding (or in this case the pictures) so I'm not sure about this one.

  • still in a 15/16 (was up to 19/20 so I am making progress)

  • from March 22nd to October 17 - lost 1 1/2 inches - halfway there except that my start date for this 3" is Oct. 18th so I still really have 3 inches to go

  • reduce caffeine intake ... yeah, I seem to have a serious addiction. or maybe it's just habit. i'm able to resist on the weekend. the fact that I sit on my rear most of the day ... doesn't help my cause AT ALL.

Anyway, this isn't all about me ... I just want to encourage you to set goals, write them down, focus on them, work towards them ... and you'll be able to achieve anything you put your mind to.
