This Week's Suggested Topic Was: Do you set short term and/or long term goals? Are they visual? Do you "allow" yourself a reward for reaching a goal? Have you reached a goal recently? Please share!
I am a total goal setter but I've rarely ever reached my goals. Either I simply don't commit and follow through or I've set them so astronomically high that I get discouraged and "give up". Much like my commitment to getting healthy, I've also made the commitment to setting SHORT TERM ATTAINABLE goals. I figure this will give me a better opportunity to see short term gain/reward for a short term commitment. It made sense at the time and still does.
I have always been a visual learner. Hands on kinda stuff. If I can't see it and/or try it, I can't do it. Therefore, I thought I'd use the same learning "ideology" with my goal setting. If I can see "it" (the goal), I can be reminded of "it", I can stick to "it". Logical, right?!?! I thought so too!
And so, the first goal I have set for myself on this long journey to healthy living is to fit into one of the two following dresses for my Bestie Tammy's wedding on August 25th. I have these hanging in my room on my wall so, they are the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I look at before I head to bed (I wasn't kiddin' when I said I was going to be a visual goal setter...hahaha!).
