Musing About New Goals

Saturday, December 26, 2009

I think I love the period after Christmas more than the actual holiday! It feels so good to get rid of clutter and set new goals this time of year. The new goals are going to require some thoughtfulness but here's what I know now:

Though I haven't lost any weight this past year (I keep gaining and losing the same five pounds) I have successfully reduced my binging. I binge less often and when I do, I eat less. I feel that my out of control eating was the underlying cause of my weight gain so I concentrated on that in 2009.

So, working upon this success, I want to begin to concentrate on moving more to burn calories and begin to do more toning exercises to improve muscle mass. Considering my sensitive joints, I think walking will be the best choice for me. Also, DVD workouts and using hand weights. The final component will be to spend less wasted time on the computer. I plan to reduce the computer tasks to the essential only and to monitor my time and set a time limit for computer usage.

    Yes my goal is to be more organised this year, then hopefully other things will become easier to manage with a routine in place. Time is a big one for everyone, so using it wisely is a good thing. Take care and I wish you every success in 2010.

    It is so easy to get caught up with things going on on the computer. I have had to limit my time also. I work on a computer all day at work, so coming home and spending more time than is necessary just wasn't working for me and getting any calorie burning in.
    Here's to much success in 2010.

    Yes, I also love the day after Christmas. I had time to relax instead of thinkning about what I need to do next. I had time to sit for 15 minutes whihc is always a great gift to myself.

    Wishing you happiness as you pursue your goals.

    Best of luck! I can't run much anymore because of a bothersome knee, so it's walking for me too = )
