Weekly Goals

I'm thinking I should set a couple weekly goals for myself. 

Yes, my ultimate goal is to lose 119 pounds, but that number is so larger and daunting.  That is what is holding me back.  I keep saying to myself, "I want to get down to 150," but right now I'm far from it.  That is why I'm going to start making weekly weight loss and exercise goals.

For example.

Side note.  Every single time I say for example I think of every Spanish teacher I had in high school and college that would say for example in Spanish - por ejemplo. 

Again, for example, this week my goal is to lose three pounds and to run at least three miles. The running should be easily attainable since I'm probably going to be running tonight, tomorrow, and for sure next Monday. The challenge will be losing the three pounds. I need to keep my eating in check this week (and every week).  My week will run from Wednesday to the following Tuesday.  This may seem confusing, but with Weigh in Wednesday I need to have a base to start with.

In my mind, working to get those three pounds (or whatever my weekly goal is) will make my ultimate goal much more achievable. 

What do you think?  Are you going to have a weekly goal (or two) to work toward this week?

I always have a weekly goal - 2 pounds. I let LoseIt! take care of tracking the long term goal. - ML
