3/1 Goal results

It’s been a few days since I ended my first week of goals. I was always taught
that excuses were a weakness, so this is going to be some weak stuff right here.

This past week was one of the most stressful I’ve ever been through. Defiantly
the hardest since Color Wars last year. I worked on 2 rails apps, a php script
and 2 iPhone apps.

I did try to do something this week though:

  • Lose 3 lbs. Well. No. I gained 3
  • 100 pushups. I was able to get 50 in.
  • 60 minutes of cardio. Nope. This is the one I’m most
    disappointed in. There was no reason I couldn’t find a few minutes here and
    there to get it done.
  • 7 new pictures posted. I took more than 7, but lost my card
    reader, and just didn’t have time to sit and process images
  • Save $50 for Dani. YUP!

Not a great result, but frankly I’m not that upset. There were a few times this
week when I was exhausted but did push ups anyway. I need to choose goals that
I really care about and move my life forward instead of just random stuff I think
of.

I’m taking this week off and will be thinking about what really matters.

New Goals!

I’m pretty happy with how February turned out with my goals. I’m going to keep the momentum going and state my goals for my next cycle. One thing I realized at the end of last year was that a Year was way too long of a time-span for goals for me. After this past month, I think I can say the same about a calender month. I’m going to try week-length goals for a little while and see how they fit.

Another thing about February was that I specifically didn’t have any health, weight or fitness goals. That was by design. I’ve set and failed at those goals so many times that I wanted to get a few wins under my belt before trying them out. This week however, I’m going to focus on almost nothing but!

Here, then, is my list for the week of 3/1 – 3/7:

  • Lose 3 lbs
  • 100 Pushups
  • 60 minutes of cardio
  • 7 new pictures posted
  • Save $50 for Danika’s post-highschool fund
