Not unlike every other person out there, the pending New Year is a time for reflection and goal setting.
I knew I needed to set some goals for this upcoming year. I honestly have never really done that and so it's no wonder that I haven't really succeeded much up to this point.
Last year was a complete waste of time really. I didn't work hard at all and my lack of focus showed for sure. As I mentioned earlier, I only lost 5 lbs.
So, I gave myself some grace and decided to just let it all go until January 1st. For then I would set myself some goals and put a plan into place.
I think my plan to hold off until 2014 was a good one. I am anxious to start and have been working on my plan.
First off, I set myself a weight loss goal. I have never really done that before. I always knew where wanted to be at the end, but didn't figure out my path to get there.
I said after our TOPS rally this year that I would be KOPS 2015. For me to get there, my weight loss goal needs to be:
5 lbs a month.
This is totally do-able. I had thought of saying I needed to lose so much per week, but numbers can fluctuate so much and I didn't want one bad week to through my momentum off.
This is how I will get there:
EVERY LITTLE DETAIL
I am NOT a planner or list maker and truthfully, it's my downfall. Things feel so much more seamless when I plan it out.
So what does planning mean? It means planning meals, what exercise I am doing and logging every food I eat. I have drafted up a book to help me along. Do I think it will peeter out after a bit? Perhaps...but I hope not. I hope that for once in my life I can stick to it.
Here is what I came up with:
I am also going to plan in my blogging. I need to do better with it. While it is a personal record of my own journey, sharing keeps me accountable.
What are your goals for this upcoming year? What is your plan to make it happen?
