Let’s put it all down on “paper”! In the next month I will…...

1.       Not get on the scale until October 22, 2011. I will try and base my success on how my clothes are fitting.

2.      Lose a minimum of 6 lbs.

3.       Organize my work, school and home life.  I feel like I am all over the place right now and I need a more functional environment.
4.       Work on having a more positive attitude about life in general and myself.  I need to work on not having the attitudes of others have an effect on me.

5.       Work out a minimum of 3 times per week.

6.       Report my progress on my blog during the week so I am honest about the workouts! 

I will post my weight and updated progress pictures on October 22, 2011.  I must say that saying good-bye to my evil little friend the scale is going to be hard.  I have to admit that over the past couple weeks I have started weighing myself multiple times a day instead of just the Thursday weigh-in day.   

See, I wrote it down – now I have to do it.  

I also signed up for a 6K in December.  I would like to run it.....  That should be my motivation to continue the Couch to 5K. 
Have a GREAT weekend all! :)


  1. Good for you making small goals!

    I see you having nothing but sweet SUCCESS!

    Anxious to follow your progress!

  2. They say those who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them so you're off to a great start!

    Finding balance in life is so hard, isn't it? Work, family, health, weight really piles on. Getting organized will help a lot.

  3. Great job writing the goals down, everything sounds totally attainable! :)

  4. "I need to work on not having the attitudes of others have an effect on me."

    I need to work on that as well right now.(few issues going on)

    And I need to commit to the three days. Maybe we can do this together!

    I see on your profile that you work at a law firm. I was a legal secretary with the courts for over 20 years. I got burned out and tranfered to the computer dept....where I know nothing! lol

  5. Fantastic goals Elizabeth, very reasonable and good way to keep accountable. Best of luck, I know you can do this.

  6. Too Bad you live on the other side of the Valley or we could be exercise buddies!! Good goal setting!
