Goals for 2010

At my meeting on the 30th of December, the leader had us start thinking about goals we were wanting to achieve during a 10 week challenge.
I then joined a 7 week challenge with Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans and as part of the challenge, you were to share your goals for the challenge.

So, after a lot of thought, I found the goals I wanted to challenge myself with.
1. Lose the remaining 15 lbs to reach 100 lbs lost (and then 2 lbs to reach Onederland finally!)
2. Track more carefully at least 5 days a week.
3. Exercise more consistently at least 5 days a week for a minimum of 30 minutes.

And while the following aren't really goals, I thought I would give them a go as a means of support.

1. Be a positive influence on others (my husband included) to make more habits healthy.
2. Seek out more positive support and limit saboteurs.
3. Feel good in what I have accomplished already, continuing to my goal weight and remembering I am not going to find those lost pounds again! I WILL do this! And only I can hold myself accountable!

As a reward for accomplishing my goals, I am going to give myself a non-food reward. (Amazing how a lot of times we DO reward ourselves with food, often at a nice restaurant) I am going to reward myself with a new hairdo / colour / birthday plans since my birthday is at the end of the 10 weeks.

In reading some other blogs, I have come across a couple of ideas I am going to implement to help me achieve my goals. Meal planning (then I already know what points are used for what meals and how many points are left over without too much worry) and charting (kinda like a chore chart) when goals are reached so I can have a visual reminders of what I have accomplished.

I just hope I haven't placed my goals so high that I don't achieve them!
