Goals are important in life and in health. I have many goals. Most of them have to do with getting the world to become a more knowledge-filled and healthy place. In my own quest to achieve goals, I have found new ones. To me, a goal is a strong aspiration and inspiration. In the achievement of goals, I tend to find new and exciting other goals. I aspire to achieve and am inspired by achievement. This goes for personal and professional goals. It also goes for those goals I hope to help others achieve. So, what are my goals:
1. I aspire to get my own body in as best shape as I can. This is a health and physicality goal all in one.
2. I aspire to be successful in helping others achieve their goals for health and wellness.
3. I aspire to become a resource for your questions about health and wellness.
4. I aspire to be successful in hearth and home.
5. I aspire to gain trust and love in life and career.
These are simple goals that I may reach soon or I may aspire to always achieve. Each has a subcategory, but I don’t want to get technical and boring…so I left it at this basic list.
So, what are your goals? Can you be specific? Are they short or long-term? How can you help me achieve my goal to help you? Do your goals center around body or mind or both? How do you think you could reach those goals?
Thanks and have a healthy day!
I will think about this and answer it tomorrow. I need a little more time to reflect on my goals. Thanks Rachel.
Great topic! I’m going to share one mini goal I have at the moment. It’ll keep me accountable by sharing it. I want to lose 1 size in the next 2 months. I am going to do this by practicing mindful eating so as to eat less. This practice will also include monitoring and measuring serving sizes, cutting down on my coffee, and drinking more water. I am going to continue my workout schedule; includes weight lifting, walking, and the elliptical. Do you feel this is a reasonable time frame; too short, too long?
Love your blog and am glad I still get to keep in touch with you!
Hey Ellen! Nice to hear from you! I think your goal is a good one, but I would add the caveat that you may want to also look at WHAT you are eating…not just portion sizes and what you are drinking. I think it is beneficial to NOT follow USDA guidelines, but rather find your sensitivities. I myself am a believer of the healthy fats, veggies, and no sugars at all. This will almost definitely help you cut down a size or so as well as increase your likelihood of keeping it off and getting healthier at the same time! If you find other sensitivities, you may want to cut those out too. How? Well, definitely do the mindful eating, but also pay attention to how your body feels after eating each type of food…then eliminate the one you feel may be the offender. This really has helped me! Good to hear from you! Keep in touch!
I eat pretty well already. As much organic as I can find, no gluten, and good, hormone free, protein. Looking forward to my local farmer supplying us with some fresh meat soon.
Admittedly, sugar can be an issue with me. I love ice cream. However, I got my own ice cream maker and plan on making organic, agave sweetened goodness to satisfy those cravings.
Thanks for the feedback! I’ll keep you posted.
So Mom, your goal for today is to reflect and write those goals tomorrow!
My goal is to continue losing at least 5 lbs a month by eating right and exercising. Since February 6 I have lost 8lbs and have cut way down on sugars and carbs. I’m also back to exercising on my recumbent bike.
Well, I think that is a great goal, Mom! Let’s think a bit about what “eating right” is to you, though! I am glad you have cut down on carbs and sugars…that is a good start! Try eliminating things and see what happens! I bet many things will improve..including weight!
That sounds awesome, Ellen. I’ve heard mixed reviews about agave nectar, but it does probably do better than sugar or fructose! I can’t wait to hear your progress!
