I have been to enough business seminars over the year to know that Goals must be SMART. Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely.
Oh who really does that, not me and this could be why I have failed in the past. I am going to blurt mine out exactly how I want and maybe througout this process I will alter them to follow the rules. (use Ctrl + click for the links to work)
No.1– Keep the work, life, family life, exercise balance in order to keep everyone happy. Not as easy as it seems, Mummy/wife guilt get the better of me so much I don’t know how to escape this sometimes. I was aiming to do 1 event per month at most, to keep the balance right, but it seems February 2013 is a bit hectic.
No. 2 – Complete the Pink Triathlon (longest distance) – 6 Oct 2012 – Homebush, Sydney NSW – I have signed up, paid my money, no backing out now, just train hard. My goal is to not come last, I know someone has to but I just don’t want it to be me. Pink Triathlon
No.3 – Compete at NSW Indoor Rowing Championships – 17 November 2012 – Blacktown NSW – My goal is to do a PB in 500m and 4 minute events and hopefully win a medal and have some fun in the relay event. NSW Indoor Rowing Championships
No. 4 – Mud Run – 1st December 2012 – Sydney International Equestrian Centre – this looks like fun and fitness all rolled into 1. My goal is to round up a stack of friends to do this with me and have a great time. Mud Run
No. 5 – possibly compete in lllawarra Aquathon, Short Course – 26 January 2013 – Belmore Basin Wollongong NSW – My goal is to start and finish, nothing more. Illawarra Aquathon
No. 6 – Warrior Dash – 9 February 2013 – Picton NSW – 5.44km Obstacle Course, run and have fun. Warrior Dash
No. 7 – Husky Triathlon – 16 February 2013 – Husskison NSW – Enticer – Goal to start and finish and improve individual elements from the Pink Triathlon. NOTE: this is just days before my 40th Birthday. Husky Triathlon
No. 8 – Weight Goal – this is a tough one and a biggy that will definitely help with all my other goals, I don’t know what I can achieve in 6 months. A realistic goal would be about a 12kg loss, but I would like to lose 15-20kgs. I feel like since my last 12 months plateau I don’t know how to get out of this. I need to set myself some mini goals and probably need some help in this area.
Good on you Rach – I am with you. I am ready to lose this last 15 – 20kgs and have signed up for this round of Michelle Bridges’ 12wbt. I too have had a plateau for about 6 months and I am over it. By the way, you are already totally fabulous!
Good for you! I too struggle with my weight and have just started my version of Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition. I am trying to follow the advice I hear on that show but like you said, 70% of the battle is food related and nobody can control that but me.
Good luck with your journey! I will be cheering for you!
