Mini Goal

I am trying a new routine this week of working out at night.  I'll eat dinner somewhat early, do whatever chores or whatnot that I need for the night, get on my bike for a 20-40 minutes and then take a shower and be lazy.

It's working pretty nicely.  This morning I woke up a little sore in the legs but nothing I can't handle.  It's feeling nice so far.

I like to set mini weight goals for myself, it's just easier than looking at the big picture of having to lose as much weight as I'd really like to and I have one now.  I want to lose 20 pounds. By May.  That's a pretty big goal, but it would be nice.  I'm hopefully planning a trip to England in May (and Scotland if I can pull it off), to see my wonderful friends there, some of them to meet in person for the first time!  It would be really great to take my first long flight like that with a bit of an accomplished feeling anyway.

I don't have much else.  I've just been on the lookout for that darned Ikea kitchen island and healthy crock pot recipes.  I hope you are all having good weeks!

I would love to be able to set a workout routine like this for myself, but I don't even have one set day off a week anymore. I can feel myself backsliding.

But good luck to you! Though I really don't think you need it. You can do anything you set your mind to. (:

You're awesome and you can do this!

That sounds like a wonderful plan! I would love to do something like that myself but with not getting home till 7:30pm I find it hard jump right in. By the time dinner is made and the kids are in bed I am whooped. I need to figure something out though.

Sounds good, girly.

I love that you have the smaller goals. Maybe if you even broke them down into even smaller ones (like 5 pound increments) it'd help you, too. Lord knows that a 20 pound goal can still seem super daunting, but a 5 pound goal seems much easier to get to...quicker.

I set mini goals too. I go 10 lbs at a time and reward myself when I meet it. Your plan sounds like a good one!
