July 31st, I posted the following as my August goals:
“So on that note, here are my short-term goals for August:
End August weighing less than 212 pounds
Weekdays: Lunchtime walks and evening exercise, each minimum three times a week
Weekends: Minimum of one major exercise session
Organize my recipe cards and make one new recipe each week (habit-forming, I hope)
Sleep 7 hours a night
Now, how to keep this list handy to continually remind myself??”
It’s now just past halfway through August, so I’ve been wondering how I’m doing so far.
- I’m only at 219 in pounds, so I’m thinking the 212 isn’t likely to happen. It could, but I’m not super hopeful.
- I’d say the exercise goals have been approximately 50% successful, including a bout of sickness last week.
- The recipe cards are about 10% done, and the new recipe goal completely untouched (so far).
- I’d say the most successful goal has been the sleep – most nights so far I’m able to hit 7 hours, though there have been a few of 5 and 6 depending on the schedule. So rank that one 80% successful.
As much as I’m less than impressed with my progress (so far), I like making these goals. Now that I’m healthy and back at the grind, I think the exercise goals will come up more successful by the end of August.
