So the bulleted list should go here.  Lots of specifics….Ill get to it.  And Ill likely add to it.

But to begin I must say I just want to be healthy and rested and organized.

MAJOR GOAL ONE: 50 pounds lighter.  No lie.  I need to do this.  I’ve been walking around  carrying a huge load of extra pounds every where I go…every step I take…….and I’ve been doing this for 8 years!  That’s right,  my daughter was born 8 years ago.  This is not baby fat.  I was 40 and I am facing 50…and if I don’t change I’m  likely going to go into one of the BEST decades of my life…50 pounds overweight.

MAJOR GOAL TWO: Truly Meditate Daily  I try, I do.  I know that counts for something.  But meditation like anything takes practice and commitment.

MAJOR GOAL THREE: Be organized Sounds basic and general I know.  But I am going for specifics on this one.

  • Clean out all rooms, storage and office related stuff so that I don’t walk by a pile, a box, a closet, a desk…and sigh and stress and silently freak out inside saying “Why? Why? Why?”…loudly inside my head.  I truly can’t take it any more.  And I know this stress is bad for weight loss …it is.
  • Stay on a  solid and consistent daily schedule.  I’m all for spontaneity.  I’m fine with it and frankly I consider myself fairly easy going in this department.  But structure works for me – at least in a general sense.  I need to set and manage my daily agenda. When I run out of time or I see stuff like my big pile of mail sitting unopened….or the Ikea drapes that I bought a month ago still sitting in the bag……….I sigh and stress and silently freak out inside saying “Why? Why? Why?”…loudly inside my head.  I truly can’t take it any more.  And I know this stress is bad for weight loss …it is.
  • Improve my Time Management…again seems general.  But lets face it.  I suck at getting the majority of my “to do list” done.  And frankly I know lots of people with more responsibility and less time who work and produce circles around me. Not just at work but in life.  I hate that.   I am a very smart, interesting and interested person.  I need to get it together……because when another Sunday ends and I’ve not done a single thing I had on my list ….I  sigh and stress and silently freak out inside saying “Why? Why? Why?”…loudly inside my head.  I truly can’t take it any more.  And I know this stress is bad for weight loss …it is.

MAJOR GOAL FOUR: Take much better care of myself…..I actually make the steps in this direction.  I work out hard when I get to they gym, I get a regular facial and deep tissue massages ( I know I sound like a whiner don’t I).  But there are so many things that have to be done on a day-to-day basis in order to really make all of those nice things  I’ve just listed here,  that are so relaxing and pampering, to actually hold their long-term benefit.   Stretching, sleeping enough, drinking enough water, caring for my skin and my hair  with attention and detail and purpose.  I mean, I’m going to be 50.  I need to get it together before it all falls apart.   When I realize that I am not making a concerted and regular effort in this department……I sigh and stress and silently freak out inside saying “Why? Why? Why?”…loudly inside my head.  I truly can’t take it any more.  And I know this stress is bad for weight loss …it is.

So these are my goals and my wishes.  I need to kick it into gear over the next 120 days!
