I've been kind of slack lately on goal-setting. This past week, though, I've been reading a couple of books about it, and I am feeling inspired to make more specific goals and follow through with them. I'm working on goals for different lengths of time, but one thing I want to focus on here is weekly goals. A week seems like a "doable" length of time, yet it's still long enough to feel like I've really accomplished something. So here are my exercise, nutrition, and sleep goals for this week, along with explanations. I'm pretty sure they are all reasonable goals for me, but I know I can adjust them next week if I need to.
1) Exercise at least 10 minutes per day. I joined the 10-Min. Daily Exercise Challenge Team several months ago, and almost finished, but then I got sick. I really enjoyed the challenge when I did it, and I'd like to get back into the habit of doing some kind of exercise daily.
2) Go to the gym at least 3 times. I already go to my trainer twice a week, so this just means being sure to go once more, either after work one day or on Saturday.
3) Meet with the Gwinnett/DeKalb SparkAtlanta Team for the walk on Sunday (tomorrow). I don't have any conflicts in my schedule this time. I don't want to let being nervous or shy stop me from going and meeting some other Sparkers and walking together.
4) See if my pedometer can be exchanged or repaired, or just get a new one. I got a pedometer for Christmas, and just when I was starting to really enjoy it, it stopped working. I think I saved the warranty card from the packaging, so I need to look for it. If I can't find it, I should just go get a new pedometer, because it was really motivating.
Nutrition is harder for me than exercise, and I don't want to put my exact numbers in here, but I do have exact goals. I'm starting with just three simple goals for now.
1) Drink a minimum number of waters per day.
2) Drink a maximum number of Diet Cokes per day.
3) Eat a minimum number of "freggies" per day. I love the word "freggies"! I learned it here on SP.
1) Sleep 8 hours a night at least 4 nights this week. This is something I've just started working on recently, but I can tell that I do feel better when I get more sleep.
I'm excited about my goals, and I'm looking forward to a great week!
