Just about every person has personal health goals that they’re trying to achieve. Maybe you’re trying to bulk up for bodybuilding, or you’re trying to slim down for whatever reason you may have, or you’re happy with your body and maybe you just want to have a little bit more energy during the day. Whatever your reason: I’m proud of you.
And maybe you fell off the wagon on your journey. You know what? I’m STILL proud of you.
There is nothing wrong with failing and then re-starting on your goals. You are human, it’s normal. (Presumably… I don’t know you, you could be a robot. If so…damn, you’re one fine robot.)
Personally, I’ve started and re-started this journey more times than I would care to admit. And I’m starting it over again now, actually. It’s an attempt to hold myself accountable for the choices I make, and try to get healthier along the way. I currently have a relatively high level of energy. I do not get winded on stairs, I go to the gym three times a week, and I am at no risk for hbp or diabetes. I keep up on that with my doctor, no worries. I just want to do this for me.
My long term goal is to get down to 155 LBS by my 30th birthday. That’s a little over three years away, so I have time to do it in a healthy and effective way. I am currently at 258 LBS, so I have 101 to go! I have a timeline of goals, actually…
Goal #1: 245 by December 31, 2017
Goal #2: 220 by May 10, 2018 (27th birthday)
Goal #3: 199 by December 31, 2018
Goal #4: 180 by May 10, 2019 (28th birthday)
Ultimate Goal: 155 by May 10, 2021 (30th birthday)
So hopefully this semi flexible and long term guideline will help me be able to stick to my goals.
So let’s do this!
I’m starting now.
Today’s date: 10/10/2017
