A Goal Without a Plan

You’ve heard it said before, a goal without a plan, is just a wish.  BUT do you believe that?

Just writing it down right now: A couple of simple, clear decisions that will move you in the direction you want to go tomorrow IS often; all that your plan needs…

No one ever wrote down a plan to be fat, broke, stupid, lazy, unhappy, and mediocre. Those are the things that happen to you when you don’t have a plan.

2013 Goals

Happy New Year …how is it going? Hope everyone is moving towards their goals and/or resolutions. One goal I have for 2013 is to cover at least 1,000 miles via walking/biking/swimming or whatever. I even have a great group for this on Facebook which is fun. Part of this goal includes wearing my FitBit consistently and aiming for 10,000 steps/day and 10 flights of stairs/day.

Another goal? Climb Enchanted Rock to the top and complete the trail around the bottom (more on that later).
Hardest Goal?  I must work on getting more vegetables into my body. NOT sure how to quantify or measure that yet, but I will before this blog is done.

Some of you in here are aware of my weird eating habits, some call it a disorder. BUT if you’re not familiar and happen to be interested, there is a link below where I write about it a bit. At any rate; a big weakness of mine is that I do not eat nearly enough vegetables. I’ve just GOT to get them in me. Right now I take an Alive multi-vitamin and make-do with some smoothies. I had spent a long time in broadening my diet and expanding with the 300 new foods experiment. It was pretty successful, but also stressful, so I took a LONG break. Time to get back at it. Must start making and finding ways to get more veggies in my body without them coming back up!

And in other news, last weekend I climbed a big fat rock . I didn’t quite make it to the top of Enchanted Rock, my stupid knee wouldn’t let me … but I came darn close. Next time, that mountain is MINE! I will climb that rock and do the trail around the bottom before the end of 2013 for sure. It is part of my plan for 2013.  I really need to find a good knee brace. Hiking is my true love. I’d rather be outside climbing a hill or walking a trail, than in a gym any day. Tom ( hubby ) also suggested maybe a walking stick when we’re on the trails to help me with my knee. Here is a pic as we started out of hubby and baby James getting going. The other 3 children had taken off already.

Okay Folks – Time for a Goal Check

Happy July !

July 1st …welcome to mid-year. Today is a great day to check in with all that you have accomplished this year thus far. Celebrate it.

Then take a realist look at anything that may be missing, that if you put into action, would make the biggest difference. Create the second half of your year.

I am reading a book called ‘PUSH’ by Chalene Johnson.  I love it.   In addition, my husband and I just participated in a workshop series called the 8 Pillars of Financial Greatness.  The book PUSH is largely about health (but not entirely) … and the 8 Pillars is about money … but really, in my mind, they kind of go together hand-in-hand even though they are completely separate and have nothing to do with each other.

Basically – you need to figure out the core value of who you are, and thus your core priorities.  What are the top 5 priorities and things that you value in this world … health? money? career? family? time? travel? spirituality?  Whatever they are – define them.   THEN rank them.   Now that you know what is important to you, align your goals and your time spent to be in sync with those intrinsic core values of who you are, so that you are in harmony and set up for success.   If you’re spending time and money volunteering at an animal shelter and donating money to them, but animal rights is not in your top 5 core values, then you may need to re-adjust.  That’s just a minor example.  Trust me, I’m not against animal rights 🙂  I love animals, but it is not in my top 5. You can care about a lot of things … and you can be interested in all sorts of things … but get down to the heart of who you are, what you want and what you live for.

Remember, you really do get to decide how to design your life.
