100 Days to the New Year - Goals and Commitments

Thursday, September 23, 2010

This blog post is inspired by MEZZOANGEL and MADEMCHE. Please check out their post they did and what they had to say. As she stated including today, there is 100 days left before the new year. WOW! Where did the time go?

In Paula's post she stated that only 3% of people take time to physically write their goals down, but when they do, there is a 90% accomplishment rate. So I'm definitely on board that I am going to write this down and accomplish it.

I, Lisa have 100 days to make a difference in my life. I promise myself that

I will eat within my calorie range.
I will log my food into sp.
I will run according to my planned schedule.
I will run my first official 10K.
I will run my first official 15K.
I will run my first Official half marathon.
I will Strength train 3 to 4 times a week. (not when I feel like it)
I will Zumba 1 time per week.
I will continue to support others on sp just like they have supported me.
I will lose 27 pounds before January 1, 2011.
I will spend my energy on today not yesterday or tomorrow.
I will remember that this journey is my own and that I am responsible for its outcome.

How are YOU going to make the last 100 Days of 2010 count? Write it down!! Let’s do this together and ring in the new year with our commitments- turned- accomplishments that we made to ourselves!

Thank you Paula & Maun you both are very special people and I am glad your my SP friends. emoticon

    That's amazing!!!

    What a great idea to not only write it down but publicly post it! Talk about keeping the motivation factor up!

    You can do it! I'll be following your progress :)

    Fantastic idea! Instead of starting with the New Year's Resolution (as most always do), you do it the opposite way! Brilliant!
    WooHoo for the next 100 days for Lisa!!!!!!

    I love this idea....I was going to do it. Then I hemmed and hawed. Okay, now I am doing it! I love how our goals are so similar :o}

    Though I wish I had a 15K around here! There isn't a 10K or 15K by the end of this year...I wish I hadn't been injured for the 10K in August! Oh, well....I will settle for the 8K I did.

    You are awesome, Lisa, and I know you will accomplish all you set out to do!!

    It is hard to believe that there only 100 days left of this year. Sometimes time seems to be standing still for me as I struggle to keep going and take care of myself without my honey but then looking back time has flown by also. I cannot set a lot of goals right now but I can say that I will work on setting a few and by the end of this year I will be ready to set even more. You are an inspiration to many and especially to me.

    Great idea! I had no clue we were down
    to 100 days already. I'm off to work on
    my goals.

    I LOVE the thought of writing down goals so we can see them on a daily basis & remind ourselves of where we're going! Congrats to you & your SP friends for passing along this wonderful idea!

    Thank you!
