I may very well add more goals to this list as I come up with them. As you can see not all of them are based solely on numbers. While I do find the numbers important (obviously), I would rather focus on daily life and functionality…I am changing my *life,* not just my body.
You’re making great progress in very short time! congratulations.
Thanks for the kind words, David!
I think it’s awesome that you have a separate page for your goals! It’s a great way to stay motivated!!!
Yeah, I had seen other bloggers doing that with their goals and it made sense to me. I wanted easy access to my goals so that I could look at them often. Keeping all those goals at the forefront of my mind keeps everything on track…and it makes it much simpler when I want to go cross something off. 🙂
I hope you don’t mind me copying this idea. I would like to do a goal page on my blog as well.:) It’s such a good idea. And, it would be where I could go to it often to look at.
Absolutely not at all. 🙂 If you think it will help you…copy away, my Love.

Hmmm…I think I really need “goals” page too!
I must admit I love my goals page. I visit often for motivation and guidance as to what goal I am the closest to reaching. It always give me an extra little “push” in the right direction…and with so many goals on there, I am constantly working toward something. 🙂

I love the progress you’ve made! As a mom who is totally into health and fitness, you are giving your children the greatest gift-you and being surrounded by a healthy lifestyle! Keep on doing what you’re doing!
My new lifestyle has certainly sparked something in my older daughter (who is 7). She works out with me here at home and loves doing jack knives and pikes on the stability ball. Actually, just yesterday she told me she wants to be a personal trainer and Zumba instructor when she grows up. She wants to help people get healthy…just like the people helping me. 🙂 I thought that was super sweet of her.
