Fired Up!

Thursday, August 27, 2009

It's hard for me to set goals. I wonder (& literally wander), "Is this too hard- I don't want to fail. Not hard enough- what's the point?
What do I really want to accomplish?
To lose weight- how much? To be healthy- how? What will I DO?

To earn my college degrees someone else gave me the small goals I would have to reach to accomplish the larger goal that had I set for myself. The same with NBC- I knew the end product, someone else set the small goals for me- boy, did they!

I have joined several challenges starting in the next week or so. These seem to help me focus.

The Virtual Walk/Run Challenge is one. It is a walk/run across the country with specific destinations along the way.

One of my goals is to start out walking, but by the end of the month, I will use the C25K program so that by the end I will be running a real 5K.

Second, I am on the Orange Tigers Biggest Loser Team & that will be a fun way to stay focused & we will encourage each other along the way. The team leaders are VERY stoked & want us to ROAR all the time.
BL will help meet goal number two- to lose 20 lbs. in the ten weeks that we will be competing & win the BL, of course!

Third, the Sculpt Your Body Team has great leaders & I will be toned by meeting those challenges.

Then there are my Wii Fit teams. They will help in all those areas.

I am focused & excited to get that leather Harley Jacket for Christmas- I DO NOT want to be the fat woman on the back of a motorcyle.

Totally unrelated- my son took this picture on their vaca at Carolina beach.
BTW did you see the pictures of my granddaughter? I'm shameless, I know!

    I saw your comment about the Couch to 5K goal. I found a free iTunes series that sets each weeks goals to timed music with coaching. I actually downloaded the first week today. Going to try it on Sunday, since I already had a 'hard' inteval workout day today. The podcast is called "Podcasts for Running".

    Good luck.. and thanks for the encouraging words on my SP.

    Woo Hoo! Glad to see you are so motivated to achieve your small goals. But, I am sorry to tell you I am winning the BL challenge. Thought everyone knew that!
