My August Goals

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

I have wanted to do this for several days, but it seems like when I have wanted to sit down and write, something has come up. A lot is going on in my personal life, and am having a very hard time making sense of it all. When I do, I will share, because like I said it doesn't make sense to me, and it will gone on for at least another 2 weeks before I can even claim my life back....but that is here nor there. I am just hoping I can finish this tonight.
My Goals:
1. Drink 8-(or more) glasses of water a day
2. Track my food & exercise
3. Walk or Bike every day
4. Send Happy Hikers team members a comment/goodie everyday
5. Try to cut down on smoking from 6 cig. a day to 5 a day or 1 less every 2 days
6. Get 7 hours of sleep every night
7. Get rid of things in my apt. that I no longer need or that remind me of times that
were very unhappy in my life.

I am hoping I can succeed at least a couple of these, or maybe more. I love being a member
of the Happy Hikers and the BSG challenge for August for the Aspire & Inspire team. I get unlimited amounts of support & encouragement from my other members and I cannot thank them enough.

    Great goals, now DO IT! (There's my motivation for you. emoticon ) We share many of the same goals!

    I'm glad to see the cutting down on smoking. That one in itself isn't easy, but so worth it! I taste food better, my sense of smell is stronger (this can be good or bad) and my clothes don't stink.

    Is there a replacement behavior you can substitute for smoking? Taking a quick walk, cleaning a room, calling a friend, getting on Sparkpeople, etc? I'm not judging, just trying to help since I was a smoker.

    Keep at it and you'll do great! Besides, there are lots of people here rooting you on! emoticon

    I hope everything turns out ok for you Barb! Take care of yourself! I love the August goals...you can do it! #5 & #7 aren't the "typical" goals that we see but they are very important in the long run! Best of luck with them my dear friend :)

    Your goals look great! It's hard to stay the line when personal challenges are interfering. I hope that things get straightened out for you, so you can focus in on your health and work on your goals! emoticon
