When I started this blog, the purpose was to be active, eat better & ultimately lose weight. Besides that purpose, I didn't really set any concrete goals. I've been thinking about that & there are some goals I'm setting out after.
-Take my daily vitamin.
I've had a bottle of 130 vitamins in my bathroom cabinet for over a year now. Let's just say its not empty.
-Work on my bingo wing.
Now you might be asking what a bingo wing is. Its a term my friend Terra coined for that lovely portion of your underarm. Imagine an old lady playing bingo raise up her arm & shake it all around yelling "BINGO!" You get the drift. I can't remember a single time in my life I've been comfortable in something sleeveless & I want that to change. I've been doing some upper body strength training already, so I'm thinking of chronicling it as Bingo Wing Wednesdays. Lame?
-Run a 5k
Yes, I put the word run there. Walking a 5k would be a piece of cake, I've walked longer in the park by my house. I'm starting a 5k in 100 days program soon thanks to Brad Gansberg (he's teaching a 100 people for free, isn't that awesome?) & can't wait to make this a reality. I'm looking at the Susan G Komen race in June for this (depending on when training gets started). I'm also going to look into walking some other races too!
Those are just 3 of the things I'm striving for right now in addition to eating better, getting fit & getting rid of this weight. As far as my goal weight goes, besides considering what's normal for my height, I'm not sure where I want to end up. When I look & feel like I'm where I need to be, then I'll be happy (but my grandpa's offer to give me a $1 for each pound I lose has me extra motivated to lose it all!).
I do, however, want to celebrate the milestones I'll reach along the way. As of last week I sit at 27.5 pounds lost, so 30 is SO CLOSE. Who knows? I could easily hit it tomorrow when I do my weigh-in. These are some of the rewards I'm going to bestow upon myself when I get there.
-Get a pedicure! I have never treated myself to one & with all I'm putting my feet through, they deserve some pampering.
-Buy the pasta press I've been eyeing on Amazon for the last 3 months. I was going to get a cheap one with Christmas funds, but saving for the awesome one!
-Have a spa day with the works (possibly with my Mom if I can get her to visit!). A whole day devoted to relaxing. Ahhhhhh . . .
-Get my first tattoo. This is something I've been wanting to get for a loooooong time. Its a piece of artwork my mother did that is inspired by my grandmother (RIP). Its a piece I've always loved & it always reminded me of my grandma long before I knew it was about her. It means a lot to me & I can't wait for it!
For numbers bigger than that, I haven't decided on. When I reach goal, though I want to do something big. Anyone wanna donate to send me on a cruise? :)
