I really REALLY want to go on a vacation next Christmas Break! I want to go to Mexico, and lay on the beach...and not feel gross in a swimsuit. I hope to lose 40 lbs. I really need to get more into weight lifting, and I know I'll enjoy running a lot more if my legs can handle it.

Iíve been thinking about this for awhile now. Below are my goals:

Weight Loss Goals

  • Get to 145 : by my birthday (November 27th) Ė Basically lose almost 40 lbs. To accomplish this goal I need portion control, exercise, water and a positive attitude.
  • Get in the habit of exercising . I want to be one of those people who looks forward to going to the gym. I want it to become ďHABITĒ and not a burden.
  • Drink more water!!! I suck at this so I really need to work on this. I have been doing better at this in the month of December so hopefully it can continue to spill into next year.
  • Take a multi-vitamin everyday.
  • Donít eat/drink so much sugar. Uggghhh this is a hard one. I love sweets. I must do better this year as I probably eat 20 lbs. of chocolate a year. BAD JESS!
  • Remember this is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. This isnít just to get into a smaller pant size or look sexy in lingerie. This is to be a better ME inside and out for the rest of my life. This isnít a quick fix or a fad. This is a process of changing my habits and changing my life.
Other Not Weight Related Goals
  • Communicate better overall. With my BF, friends, co-workers, etc.
  • Communication is key and I just think I can always improve upon that.
  • Do at least one thing thatís really daring! Do something over the top. Over the past 5 years or so, Iíve come out of my shy shell and have developed self confidence. Iíve become a totally different person. I want to continue developing myself and with that, Iíd like to be more outrageous!
  • Show the people I love more appreciation. Send little notes and give little gifts throughout the year instead of just on birthdays and Christmas. Show my friends, family and BF how much they mean to me all year and not just on holidays.
  • And lastly just be a better employee. I think Iím a damn good employee already, but I want to continue bettering myself and constantly grow. I want my boss to see my potential. I guess that means I should get back to work then

Okay I need to work anyways. Iím just being a slacker right now as Iíve been doing so much work the last few days. Hee hee. Okay I think tat is all my goals for next year. Kind of vague, but oh well.

Mine are the same two goals I've had nearly every year for 2 or 3 years.

To lose weight. Right now, I'm just trying to make my goal of 130 by April.

And to do well in school. Next school year is especially critical that I do well. I'm tired of school and I'm ready to graduate!

I'm hoping to reach my weight loss goal by Valentine's Day. I had originally hoped to make it by my first wedding anniversary (Jan 8) but I don't think that's going to happen!

Other goals:

Graduate school (should happen, barring any complications)

Continue exercising 5 days a week (so far, so good!)

Drink enough water, 8-10 glasses a day

Improve my friendship with my husband. We've had a rough year, just lots of bad stuff happening, and we didn't have a lot of chances just to have fun together

Give myself a little time each day to pray, reflect, read, just have alone time. I haven't been doing much of that lately and I miss it.

Go on a fun vacation

I don't know what else...

Weightloss goals- I have decided that I want to be down to 140ish by July. I am working on eating breakfast everyday, so far so good. I also want to start running again.

Non weightloss- Finishing school, I have registered for two online classes during the second half of the spring term. I dropped out of college 4 years ago and have wanted to go back ever since, but something always scares me away, lack of money, daycare for the girls, a million things. This time I can't let it happen.

There are also a couple of bills I would like to get paid off.

Good luck with everyones goals.

I have a couple of goals that are kinda lofty, but I might as well aim high, right?
1) Become an aerobics instructor...even though I have a full-time job, I really want to teach a class on the weekends, especially kickboxing. I am going to my gym's instructor search later this month!
2) Train for a half marathon...this is something I know I CAN do, it's just a matter of doing it!
3) Find something that I really like doing during the week so that I can take a break from work (join a club, go out with friends more...any other ideas??)

Happy New Year everyone!

Oh and 4) Reach goal!!!
