2009 New Year Resolution & Goals Update #3 & #4

with 2 comments

Project “End 2009 with a bang”

Week 3 & 4 (of 6)

Goals

  • Health – lose 15 pounds
  • Family & Friends – Finally send thank you cards to everyone who attended my birthday party in April (I know – it’s horrible)
  • Relationship with God – attend church every Sunday for the rest of the year

Update #3 & #4

Okay, I soo wasn’t ready for laser focused action… I had mixed results the last two weeks.

Health

I lost 5 pounds. (Three pounds in week 3 and two pounds in week 4) That brings me to a total loss of 5.2.

It’s progress, but I feel bad because I know I’m not going to make it anywhere near my goal of losing 15 pounds by the end of the year. Plus, it’s kind of a drop in the bucket toward my larger goal.

However, I’m going to brush that off my shoulders and keep it movin’…

Family &  Friends

OMG, I’m doing the worst in this area… I still haven’t done anything here! 😦 It’s sad, but true. Maybe I should take Shae Bynes advice, from her comment on my last post, to heart and just roll the thanks into a christmas message.

To answer your question Shae, I’ve been procrastinating because I kind of feel like a card just won’t show everyone how thankful I am for them, their being at my party and the gifts they gave me.

This is another area where I need to stop being so hard on myself and just give it another try this week, which is exactly what I’ll do. Hopefully…

Relationship w/ God

I didn’t go to church the last two weeks. Here’s a preview of next weeks update – I didn’t go today either… surprise, surprise.  I’ve been hybernating the last few weeks on saturday and sunday morning. Crashing is more like it, totally dead to the world!

I feel the worst about my lack of follow through in this area, but that’s not going to stop me from going to church next week. I plan to go to church on New Years Eve too, that will be a first for me and I’m looking forward to that. No Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve alone at home this year!!!

Observations

I totally botched up everything the last two weeks, and I haven’t done alot as a whole for the last four weeks in general. However, it has been a learning experience. I do think it’s important to be ready for change when you embark on something new.

Also Shae was right… It’s better to work on one thing at a time. I orginally had a list of 7 items to work on and I’m struggling with the three that were left from the original list. I lived and learned…

It’s also important to remind yourself about your goals often, it really is a lot easier than I thought to get off track. If you have a list, pictures, or a blog post ;-), to remind yourself about your goals, you may not find yourself too far from your intended path and target at any given time.

I’m glad this is at the end of the year as opposed to New Year Resolutions at the beginning of a year. I think I know that what I’ve learned over the last month will help me in the last two weeks of the year, and with planning my goals for next year!

2009 New Year Resolution & Goals Update #2

with one comment

Project “End 2009 with a bang”

Week 2 (of 6)

I’ve been M.I.A from all things social media for the last week, so this update for this week is late, but I’ve still been making progress…

Goals

  • Health – lose 15 pounds
  • Family & Friends – Finally send thank you cards to everyone who attended my birthday party in April (I know – it’s horrible)
  • Relationship with God – attend church every Sunday for the rest of the year

Update #2

Health

only lost 0.2 pounds this week. Then again, it was two days after Thanksgivings day so that was almost like losing 2 pounds. 😀

Family & Friends

Unfortunately, I haven’t done anything here…

Relationship with God

Even after hanging out with my one of  my homies/sorors the night before, I went to church again this week. (By the way, everyone should go see the movie “The Blind Side”)

However, my sister did have to come by to help nudge me out of bed… I was going to get up and go, or hear her sing “Ladies Night” over and over, and over again. Thanks sister! 😐
