December Goals and 2010 in Review

Friday, December 31, 2010

I set several goal for myself for December in the hopes of easing back into the "project" and getting a jump-start. Here are the goals and my reflection:

Weight: Lose 5 pounds this month
PARTIAL SUCCESS: I lost 4 pounds this month. Not sure how that happened.

Exercise: 20 minutes 3x a week
FAIL: I only exercised ONE time this entire month. I should say, purposefully exercised.

Eating: Prepare 4 meals at home each week; focus on water intake; clean out pantry
PARTIAL SUCCESS: I did clean out the pantry. I prepared 14 meals of 16 at home this month. I didn't keep track of my water intake, so I have no idea how to rate this goal.

House Management: Full house clean once

Faith: Go to Christmas mass
FAIL: I was not feeling well, so I left my family party early and came home to bed. I did not make it to mass.

2010 in Review:

I started the year with the best of intentions. I started off raring to go, and about 3 weeks in, I fizzled. No excuses. I just gave up. I had little bouts of energy occasionally as the year progressed, but never fully recommitted. I would get the eating together and not exercise. Or I would exercise and eat like crap. Overall, not a success.

However, I decided to restructured my "journey" to include long-term goals and small monthly goals that will help me reach those long-term goals. I am recommitting at the start of 2011 and I will post my January goals tomorrow.

On a positive, and "I-have-no-idea-how-this-happe
ned" note... I did lose 10 pounds over the course of the year.

    Good luck in 2011!
