My goal in all this is to get healthy and make this incredible life that I envision a reality. I do have a goal weight in mind, but it’s mostly an approximate idea. I want to see how I look and feel as I get closer to that magic number. Maybe I will need to keep going, maybe it’ll be less than I thought. I’m aiming for losing approximately 50% of my body weight. For most this would not be a healthy task to undertake, but sadly for me, it’s the only way to health.
For awhile now, I’ve been keeping a sort-of bucket list of things I want to do, or buy, or places I want to visit, but haven’t because of my weight. So you can both monitor my progress and revel in the somewhat superficial joy, I’ve posted the list and will be choosing a few as I go along as rewards to myself each time I reach a percentage of weight loss. If buying myself stuff as an incentive doesn’t work…honestly, what will?
Here’s what I’m working on now:
- Once I hit my next big target, in approximately thirty pounds, I’m going to treat myself to a personal trainer. I’ve had one before, back before I started this journey, and loved it. I think it would really push me to a new level.
I’ve also started setting mini-goals each month, crossing each out as it’s completed.
Goals for April 2013
1. RUN! I’ve been slacking in the running department and I need to make this more of a priority in my daily workouts. I’ve still got five 5K’s to run this year!
