One unique aspect to goal setting is planning out the small steps that lead up to reaching your overall goal. Runners do it all the time. You want to run a half marathon, marathon, or any other distance. You plan out your training over a period of time and over that time you reach your goal by race day. I have always tackled running this way but today was really the first time it clicked for me with weight loss. The number I want to lose is larger than can be done in one week (barring a major flu or loss of limb) so I need to break it down into chunks leading up to the day when I step on that scale and do the happy dance! Let me say as an aside that I do feel that if I never lost another pound I would be healthy, however I know that I feel more comfortable at a lower weight in addition to feeling faster. I am not giving up on my goal!!This week, and I put it here so I can think of you all shaking a finger at me as I think about eating dessert, my small step is to lose 3lbs.....there I said it....it's out there and I can 't take it back! Oh boy!
What small step are you going to take today to get you to a bigger goal? What is your big goal? Share away! There is power in numbers!!!
Oh and if you need a kick in the don't give up department....I could be bias but just imagine how this would feel:
Pats are going to the Superbowl!!!
