Everybody needs goals, right? It gives you something to look forward to and work for. The feelings of accomplishment are priceless and motivates you to continue to improve yourself in other areas. I’ve had three goals for a long time now( maybe a year?), but have not made much progress towards them. These are my long term goals:
Lose 50 lbs.
Pay off all debts
I have lost maybe 5 lbs. Not good, but better than gaining. After reviewing my financial records, we have paid down $7,500 in debt. Although that may sound great, we still have $64,000 to go. And finally, there’s no chance in heck that i’m going to get pregnant unless i make significant (at least 75%) progress towards the first two goals.
So this is what i’m thinking. I need to set more specific short term goals and propose a plan for each.
Lose 50 lbs. Let’s say 5 lbs. for now. Start walking on the treadmill for 10 minutes a day for the first week. EVERY DAY.
Pay off all debts. Let’s pick one credit card and put all “extra” money towards it. Since we don’t have any “extra” money, this is a reasonable goal.
Okay, ready? Here we go. You’ll never be who you want to be if you continue to do the things you have always done. So, here’s to becoming the person i want to be.
