Nikki-Goals for this week

So I know I’ve mentioned before that I have my goals to, hopefully, achieve by October 24th, but I was also working on making short-term goals for the current week.  WELL I had been way back when, while I was still über motivated so I’m getting back into that habit this week.

This weeks goals are

1.) To eat every meal at a kitchen table with NO TV on, and to pay attention to how I’m feeling during that meal.  Instead of just shoveling all that food in. So far, so Good!

2.) To run 20km.  I liked Jill’s goal of doing 50km in the month, so I figured I could be a copycat and do a similar goal.  I’ve already done 8km (not counting treadmill running) towards this goal, so I’m well on my way.

3.) Use any spare time to do something active.  I had 30 minutes free on monday before I needed to leave for work, so I went for a quick walk around the neighbourhood.  Saturday a few of us are hitting up West Edmonton Mall’s Water Park, so that should be a fun active afternoon.

I think short goals a week should be good on top of my long-term goals.  Which, if you forgot, are:

1.) Work out 5 times a week-Any kind of work out: Tennis, golf, running, biking, frisbee, ball hockey etc. 3 for 3 so far this week!!! yes I’m counting sunday as the start of the week.

2.)Portion control-Measure/weigh what I eat to make sure I’m only eating the correct portion sizes.  I’ve done my best at this, but it is hard to measure at work when kids or staff cook some of the food.

3.)Reach my goal weight of 140 pounds by October 24 2011.  Ok so it’s probably not gonna happen on the 24th but I am working at it!
