Big, audacious, amazing goals!

Saturday, October 05, 2013

I've hit my one big goal: to get past thirty days without giving up. That's the goal that I needed to achieve to even think about other goals. And now it's done. 31.

So without further ado, a few audacious (but SMART) goals:

*Walk 10 miles. (Did 6.25 miles on some trails this morning, so that's not unreasonable.)
*Do an overnight hiking trip.
*Lose 10 pounds per month for the next six months.
*Run a 5k distance. (Again. This is not my first go-round.)

And starting my rewards:

*230 lbs (50 lost): Mountain biking gear.

PS: Any suggestions for cheap ways to get new clothes? If the next thirty days are like the thirty that just passed, I'm going to need a new wardrobe by Christmas.

    One of my friends hosts an annual clothing exchange. We haul our unwanted clothes to her place, have a nice brunch, then go through each other's piles. Any unclaimed clothing gets dropped off in a charity box afterwards.

    you could check out churches in your area. I know my church has a program called The Clothing Closet. People bring in things they no longer want or need and anyone that comes is welcome to take what they would like at no cost.

    I love the thrift stores and also consignment stores. I like the idea of selling your larger sizes and getting smaller ones. Great goals!

    cheap clothes -discount racks are great sometimes less choice but still some options.Today i bought 5 tshirts for $20
    I have luck at Goodwill, St Vincent de Paul type of stores. you may even find other inexpensive things to treat your self with.

    Good for you! As for clothing a previous poster suggested finding fb groups who buy sell and trade items and they are a great suggestion I get my children TONS of clothes that way super cheap. I would also suggest resale, thrift, and good will stores. I shop really cheap right now at dollar (Family Dollar, Dollar General) stores for clothes, I never buy more than 2 of an item in one size. I made that mistake and bought myself a bunch of x-large capris for summer and I could put them on but they fell right off midway through summer. Buy an item or two here or there, nothing all at once.

    emoticon on your 31 days. You did amazing.
    I really like your goals.
    For the clothes I know that in my area there are several groups on Facebook for exchange and selling clothing for cheap. You could maybe do a research in your area.
    If not I would try a used clothing shop if you're comfortable with that. They sometimes have amazing things for a ridiculous price. I know I donated a lot of new clothing to the ones where I lived when they didn't fit.
    Good luck on the rest of your journey emoticon

    (sorry, too much fun with emoticons)

    You can try consignment shops for some new clothes, sell your older ones that don't fit anymore while you are at it.
