Medium Goal Setting

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

I have been reading the Spark and one of the issues I'm having the most trouble with is setting medium goals. When I first signed into SparkPeople I did set a long term weight loss goal. In a recent post I also set short goals for this month as a Team Challange. I am following through on all the short term and feel I will have no problem completing them. The long term goal seems feasible as long as I work hard and stay on track. Forseeing any medical issues that restrict me from excercising.

One of my fears is the I don't want to put certain weight loss goals down and then not meet the goal. Over the last year I have had some issues keep me from excercising and I know this is a big part of weight loss. I even like to excercise and will if I can. I would like some ideas on medium goals that others have set.

    For me the medium goals I set for myself which really helped was to aim for doing things I had never done before but thought I might enjoy doing. I made a sort of "bucket list" that included kayaking, biking longer and longer distances, walking further, cross country skiing...no sky diving though...lol!

    When I was able to DO these things it gave me such a BOOST and I became eager to moving on to the NEXT accomplishment I wanted for myself.

    Let your mind wander...what you like to do if you knew you couldn't fail...? :-)

    What would some goals be that would take you steps toward this...?
