Goals for August: Number 1: Start a New Me!

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

As my mind was all over the place yesterday, I thought I’d try to tame it somewhat today. Below are my list of goals for August. I hope that I will be able to check them all off at the end of the month! I love ticking things off so I’m going to transfer them into a spreadsheet and print them out – ticking each off as I complete it, each week (or day).

I am not going to set myself a weight loss goal – Obviously I would love to lose 20lbs but I have to be realistic. I keep shuffling my numbers around and I have been going up and down for months and months. Hopefully by not setting a monthly weight loss goal, I can focus on sticking to my “rules” and not focus on the scale – and end up frustrated! Fingers crossed I’ll get a good result at the end of it.

A New Me starts today!
