Action Steps

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Well, I looked on my start page today and there it was at the bottom of the page....2 more action steps for me to work on in Stage 3 of the Plan. Well, the second one was easy. All I had to do was pick another fast break to work on.

The first action plan was to write about a "trouble goal." I had to chuckle, well, I really laughed out loud. Why, you might be thinking? Well, my trouble goal is that I don't like setting goals. Never have and probably never will. At least I don't write them down on paper because then someone would know if I failed to complete one.

I'm very competitive by nature. So why am I afraid of setting goals? One reason may be that I'm not the kind of person who sits back and analyzes every little part of their life. I just do things. If something good or bad happens to me, well, it's over and done with. I do learn from my experiences, but I don't wallow it them.

I'm very sanguine. I have never been a list maker. I keep it all in my head. Although, that gets harder the older I get.

I marvel at some of the people on this site who have 50 bazillion goals listed. I think it's great. I guess it also comes from coming so close to death, a month in a coma and a year in a hospital that changed my perspective on things. If I wake up, it's a good day. If I don't wake up, it's a good day!

While rambling on, I realized that I really do have goals. In one of the teams I'm on, we have a weekly challenge. Because of these weekly challenges, I have met several of my nutritional goals which were sorely missing in the past. Fiber, calcium, iron to name a few. Well, I'm still working on iron but it's so improved.

I also set a fitness goal to burn 2000 calories a week. Also, I have a weight loss goal.

Wow, I have discovered that I am a goal setter. Awesome! So now I'm back to blogging about a "troubled goal." Ok, here it is. I have not put my picture on my page. Why, because I hate taking pictures. I hate the way the make me look - fat - rofl - because I am. Shock!! So here's what my goal is. I will have a picture put on my Sparks page by the end of April.

Oh, my, now it's in writing. Now I have to do it. Again, that's why I don't like setting goals.

    Well, I for one am glad you survived your brush with death. I've enjoyed knowing you in the Spark People world, and I look forward to seeing a face to put with the name and zany (yet kind and supportive) personality!!!!!!!
