Short-Term Goals for 3/28/08 - 4/11/08
Thursday, March 27, 2008
I have decided that I am going to start making short-term goals for myself that I know I can reach and will only make me stronger. The reason I made this decision was because I kept seeing all these challenges on the message boards and they were all advanced enough I didn't want to sign-up only to fail. So here's MY challenge for the next 2 weeks:
1) 15 Minutes of Cardio 5 days/week (increase as able)
2) Eat 5 fruits/veggies daily
3) Drink at least 64 oz. of water DAILY
I know it seems like it's too easy - but not for me. I am someone who does no cardio because of osteo-arthritis, bursitis in my hips, and fibromyalgia. My rheumatologist told me that even if I only did 5-10 minutes at a time, it would be a start and that's what counted. So 15 minutes is big for my old, fat bones.
I'm going to be praying daily that I reach these goals and can move on to the next set of goals. You're prayers are appreciated also.
I've made it through 1 week and have successfully met all 3 goals! I was even able to increase the walking time to 18 minutes. Water on avg. was 80 oz. per day. One more week and then a new set of goals!
I made it through 2 weeks with my 1st short-term goals and did pretty good. I was short 1 day of cardio because of a nasty cold I had, but otherwise, I stayed right on track. Check out my next blog for the next set of short-term goals.
