I decided that for 2009 I'm not going to make resolutions, instead I'm going to set goals for 2009. If I make resolutions then the first time I mess up I'm going to be angry with myself and quit... but goals are things you work towards achieving. If I mess up it's okay, I can get back up and keep going and it's okay. Goals are a work in progress. I like that idea better. Below I've posted my 2009 Personal Goals (pertaining to weight loss). I've included procrastinating because I think my procrastination effects all areas of my life... I get lazy and stall or I sometimes just allow myself to get distracted very easily. I'm done with that. Also improving my personal image isn't really weight related but sort of... I want to look in the mirror and feel good about myself. Right now I'm sort frumpy. Not just overweight, but also I dress sort of sloppy. I go any ol'way to work... I throw on whatever is clean. I don't want to be that way anymore. I'm currently going to school to further myself in the health industry, I need to start looking the part. I'm work as an Office Manager/Chiropractic Assistant. I'm basically the doctor's right-hand-woman. I know my job well. I have five years of experience under my belt, plus a background in management. But I don't feel people take me as seriously because of my appearance. It's sad but true. I want to feel good about myself, and for people to see as the professional that I am. I want to be taken serious. I want to start taking pride in the way I look. I do it during my time off, on the weekends when I'm spending time with Ross or going somewhere with Vi... I should be that caring everyday.
Here are my goals:
- No Procrastinating
- Improve Personal Image
- Reach WW Goal
- Make WW Lifetime
- Get to Personal Goal
- Exercise Everyday 5 days a week
Anyway, tomorrow is the start of a new year, and new beginnings. Here's to 2009!
