The last goal, I gave myself another 2 weeks for this deadline. I don't think I've done that great in trying to achieve it. I could be snacking less at night. I didn't have to eat out as much for restaurant week. I think in the future I am going to try and make active goals, where hopefully weight loss is a pleasant side effect. Right now I have a lot of pressure on me to do well in school, and I don't need to add any more pressure on myself concerning weight.
I suppose it's about time to make some February goals. In one of my pharmacy management classes (see I do actually pay attention in class), my teacher went over the difference between a goal and an objective. Goals are generally more broad, such as be the best runner ever. Objectives are more specific, such as run 7 miles without stopping. Just thought I'd share that tidbit of information with you all.
Goals for February:- Run 7 miles without stopping.- Try not to sweat the small stuff.- Work my absolute hardest towards school.- Exercise at least 5 days out of every week.- Log 70 miles in the month of February
In January, I logged 52 miles (not including walking to classes, etc.) For my goal of 1000 in 2011, I really need to be getting closer to 83 miles per month. Also the more I run the more my other goals of weight loss and improved running will get. I set a goal of 70 miles for February (it is a shorter month after all) because I don't want to get too far behind that I don't reach my goal of 1000 come 2012. I know I will have a lot more time in the summer to run, so if I can just keep up the best I can now, I can hopefully catch up on some miles then.
After not exercising for the past 3 days, I'm feeling extra lazy. I had planned on it, but I was simply lacking motivation. I recently read some awesome mantras on Julie's blog. I'm going to start posting on days that I don't really have the drive to workout.
My day- study- find some food...somewhere- go food shopping at some point- gym- tutoring for P&T
Today's mantra: You are blessed to have legs that allow you to run.
