Randomness & Mini Goals

Quick Thought --

I can think of two reasons why weight loss right at this moment will be hard (for me)

1. All the "delicious" holidays are right around the corner.

2. Two words, McDonald's Monopoly


On to something a little less pathetic... Last night my sis offered to meet me at the gym and I declined not because I was feeling lazy but I wanted to clean my unfit for human habitation room. When I got home I was ready to tackle the task but I decided that's what weekends are for, right? So I changed into my gym clothes and headed out. & although I didn't do a full hour as I hoped to, I did do 2 miles in 34 minutes! I am pretty pleased with that because I didn't think my little stumpy legs could push that hard. Happy Dance!

Anyways...Tonight will be a good night. My sis and I have plans on doing some thrifty shopping and the gym afterwards. I'm actually looking forward to getting on the treadmill and seeing how far I can get tonight. Now that I think about it, I don't think it would be a bad idea to get some mini goals in place for me to complete by the end of the year. Hmmmm... Ok got it!

1. Lose 25lbs by January 1st
That would be awesome! It would put me in the 170's which I haven't seen in YEARS.

2. Run 5 miles in an hour.
I've been close to it in the past but I never pushed myself hard enough to do it. This time I am.

According to my little countdown widget it says I have 86 days to complete these goals. Bring it!


  1. I think both of those goals sound doable...If you can 2 miles in 34 minutes then I know you can work up to 5 miles in an hour. I'm right there with you; you have inspired me to want to set mini goals for myself too. I know how hard it is to stay away from fast food...especially when it's so convenient. Just stay strong and trade in convenience for another C-word: Control.

    You can do it!!! =D

  2. The McDonald's Monopoly made me laugh because I can so relate!!! I swear, I used to visit McDonald's twice a day in the past when the Monopoly sweepstakes was going on because I was determined to get that damn Boardwalk thingy! Well, and I was addicted to Big Macs, too. :(
