Big Goals

Sunday, January 30, 2011

One of the hard things about having this blog is wondering whether I should really share all of my goals, and thoughts, and feelings. What if I say I am going to do something and I don't? Will I be embarrassed or ashamed? What if people don't believe in me anymore or worse, what if I stop believing in myself? Or do I share my big dreams and aspirations and hope that the accountability is enough to motivate me to work hard towards that goal each day? I am hoping that the latter is the case, because I have big goals and I am going to share them on this blog.

1. I am going to lose 40 pounds in the next 4 months. Yep, enough of this plateau. I am going to kick its butt. It won't even see me coming.

2. I am going to go kayaking this summer. This is actually the goal that I have had a hard time sharing with anyone. I mean, come on, look at me! I'm not an athlete! (yet.) And let's face it, kayakers are athletes. It's hard work out there! And I can hardly swim. Swimming in a pool is fine, but forget anything else! I don't even care anymore about my own limitations any more. I have had this dream so long, it is ridiculous! And this year, I don't care what I have to do, I am going kayaking!!!

So, my dear friends, if anyone is reading this, I would appreciate your help. I'm not talking about "Are you really going to eat that?" help, I'm talking about "Hey, you wanna go for a walk with me?" help. Or "Do you want to go out and eat a salad?" Or even "Hey, this motivated me, it might help you too." I have a few friends that are doing this already and wanted to let them know that they are very much appreciated.

So, 40 in 4, here we go!!!
