Goals....long term or short?

You know, I look at all that I need to lose and it is just overwhelming....and discouraging. I am beginning to think I am going to rid myself of my long term goals and only have short term goals. I'm thinking 10 pound goals and that's it. Once I hit 10 pounds off, I shoot for another 10 pounds, completely ignoring the big number. What do you think about goals, be it weight loss, money savings, debt payoff? Do you have both long and short term goals?

News of the day.... I have hurt my knee. I know I overused it when I was playing volleyball on Friday, but I never let it rest. The whole weekend I was out on the beach walking on uneven snow and ice. Grrrr... We have an elliptical in the haunted basement I could use.... I hate going down there alone. T-25 is definitely out for the next few days.

Let me know what you think about goals.... Till next time!

It's been almost 2 years since I posted to this blog. SHAME ON ME!

Well, after hitting a high weight of 285 pounds at my physical before moving to Alaska, I am glad to say I have lost some. I had lost 25 pounds by Christmas, but put 12 of them back on during Christmas Break. I couldn't seem to lose them, so right after Spring Break me and the school's counselor, Kristen, began to do T-25. That first week was awful! I didn't think I would ever be able move again! We finished the 5 weeks of the Alpha round last week! I do the modified version right now, but at least I'm doing something! I have lost 6.8 pounds so far, but far more important is that I feel better and have more energy.

So why start blogging again? I need the accountability over the summer! I won't have Kristen banging on my door ready to work out! It's all on me! YIKES! Plus, the Lower 48 will bring all sorts of temptations that I don't have up here, like restaurants! And, I mean, I desperately want to eat out....I go without for so long! I am going to have to find a balance!

One of my main summer goals is to do my fall semester grocery shopping so that I will be stocked with "clean" foods. I need to cut back on the processed foods and really focus on my meals here.

If I stop posting again, start bugging me!
