Goals...something that a girl like me and a team like the Toronto Maple Leafs need more of!

As I mentioned in an earlier post (and I am a newbie blogger so it wasn't that long ago) I am currently at my "good enough for now" weight with the exception of a few dreaded pounds that found their way back to me. And while I do have some weight related targets to work towards I have started to realize that my goals need to be more then about the number on a scale. I need to feel motivated by something more exciting then the possibilty of a size 6 (not that the idea of a 6 isn't super fantastic!!) I need to feel a sense of accomplishment that is more obvious then the loss of a few more pounds. I need a set of goals that I can strive for and feel proud about and use to fuel a sense of happiness that is so much more important then what I look like.

So here they are:

*Exercise at least 4-5 days a week.....dog walking and late night walks to Shoppers Drugmart for mustard flavored pretzels not included.
*Look back on every days' food intake and know that I got enough protein, vegetables and fibre...even if there are a few potato chips thrown in there from time to time.
*Get more calcium and vitamin D....ice cream does NOT count!
*10-15 full push ups...knees up for every single one.
*Run a 5K in 30 minutes or less by the end of the year....that's 4 minutes less then last Sunday
*Run a 10K by spring....and never again utter the phrase "I am just not a runner"
*Tell at least 10 people that I AM A RUNNER .... have the mileage to back it up.

So that's the plan....I'll keep ya posted!!
