Mini Goals

I am working a lot on setting goals and how to achieve those goals.  It is so much more complicated than I thought.  I love lists and planning.  I ADORE it.  But I am just not that GREAT at it.  The perfectionist in me wants it to be PERFECT.  In taking this course "How to achieve your goals and live the life you love" by Simplify 101 I am learning about goal setting and dreaming.  I really am taking these lessons to heart.  One thing that I am trying to do is setting mini goals and deadlines within my main goal. 

This is my main goal:
On August 28th, 2011 I will reach my goal weight and win the NOLA Biggest Loser2.0 competition.  I will feel health and energy that I have not felt in a really long time. I will be someone that I am proud of and my family is proud of.

Within that goal I have little mini goals:
  • I will drink 1oz/# of water minimum everyday in June.
  • I will drink 1oz/# of water minimum everyday in July.
  • I will drink 1oz/# of water minimum everyday in August.
  • I will take my vitamins every day in June.
  • I will take my vitamins every day in July.
  • I will take my vitamins every day in August.
  • I will break my loss into 10# goals.  Each of these goals will be eligible for  a reward.
    • Here are my Rewards:
    • A Massage
      A Pedicure
      Mani Pedi
      New workout shoes from my favorite store
      Classes at the Y

A New Coach Wristlet
I put all of these on a VISION BOARD.  They are in front of me and I can see them everyday!  I will also go back to giving myself gold stars.  A few years ago whenever I went to the gym or worked out I would come home and put a gold star on the calendar for that day.  It was really great motivator to see how many stars I could get.  I guess it doesn't just work for two year olds. 

I am excited about this journey and can't wait to get started! 

Much Love,

  1. LOVE THIS! I have to say, 10# minigoals (with rewards) have REALLY worked for me! It was shoes, then more shoes, then a new Coach purse! I am not sure what I will do for 75# lost (I am 3.6 lbs from it!) but it will be great!

    The water and vitamins are great goals too. I find myself CONSTANTLY filling my water bottle at work.

    Good Luck!!!
