Personal Goal Setting {Revisited}…

I absolutely love making and setting goals, so its pretty obvious that I love making new years resolutions.  Here it is February 1st and I realized I did not do much last month to move towards my goals and resolutions.  So I am revisiting.  This time — I have a plan.  A plan with some rewards built in!

Fitness Goals {Lose a few l.b.s}

  • Yoga class once a week (4x a month)
  • Go to a workout class twice a week (8x a month)
  • Lift weights three times a week
  • Run with Cody {my puppy dog} on Sundays
  • Extra credit:  swim at the YMCA once a week, yoga twice a week, work out a total of 5 days per week

Food Goals {It takes two baby — working out and eating right}

  • Keep a food journal with 90% accuracy (track what Im eating along with calories, sugar, and sodium intake)
  • Eat fruits twice a day
  • No alcoholic beverages on Thursday, Friday, & Saturday
  • Drink (2) 16oz bottles of water a day
  • Limit salt intake (I need something more specific here)

Health Rewards

  • Month 1 (February) — if I meet 3 in each category — new bottle of OPI nail polish
  • Month 1 (February) — if I meet 5 in each category — yogi toes (keeps you from sliding on your mat)
  • Month 2 (March) — if I meet 3 in each category — New workout tanktop/sports bra
  • Month 2 (March) — if I meet 5 in each category — New top and pants
  • Month 3 (April) — if I meet 3 in each category — take another yoga class (hot yoga is my favorite)
  • Month 3 (April) — if I meet 5 in each category — get a massage

Educational Goals {Increase my depths of knowledge}

  • Read 3 books a month
  • (1) Spiritual
  • (1) Biography
  • (1) Business/Self Improvement

I cant come up with any great rewards for the educational goals.  Have any ideas?

The Ideal Day Goals

  • Start at 6am (Im currently at 7am)
  • Walk Cody for 10 minutes
  • Drink a cup ‘a joe while reading the paper and daily devotions
  • Hour of business development (reading a book, doing exercises in said book, brainstorming)
  • Hour to two on large business development project (current project is writing content for my new website)
  • Blog
  • Check email
  • Eat lunch
  • Walk Cody (again)
  • Hour to two on business development project (emailing schools and moms groups about creating an organizing partnership)
  • Emails – Phone calls
  • Shut down computer

This girl enjoys sleeping in so every 2 weeks I set my alarm clock 30 minutes earlier than the 2 weeks before.  Eventually I will get to 6am — but hopefully in the most sustainable way.  I stick to the ideal schedule fairly well but have a hard time shutting down the computer at 6pm.

Do you have a plan for meeting goals?  I would love to hear your ideas!  {Seriously — I need creativity here because falling back on the same old routine is way too easy}
