The complete and utter goalage failure has made me reevaluate some things.
*****Number one. Am I focusing too much on my mileage and not enough on my healthy eating?
*****Number two. Are my goals to restrictive. 'I will lose enough weight to be in the next decade by the end of the month'. I'm not saying that that is a bad goal. But for ME...maybe it is? Maybe I need to make my goals more generalized. Something more like, 'I will lose weight this month'. When I focus on the numbers it is so very easy to throw up my hands and say 'well, I can't make that goal anymore since I had a bad week'
******Number three. Maybe monthly goals are awesome....but maybe I need to break it down into weekly goals! A week sounds so much more manageable! And maybe I need to drop it lower into daily goals. I once years ago had the idea (and I've seen it on various blogs since then) to have a calander and put stickers for each day in which I practiced healthy habits. Each day was its on small encapsulated challenge.
******Number four...:rewards. I have none. Maybe I need to come up with something tangible. The stickers from number three would probably be a good start!
So I've got some serious thinking to do in terms of my June goals! So stay tuned.....changes are a coming!!!!
