Friend Makin’ Mondays: 2012

Welcome to the first FMM of 2012!  And because it’s a brand new year, I’m sure you won’t be surprised by this week’s topic: goals.  I know that some of you don’t believe in making resolutions, and that’s okay.  I definitely understand your point of view, but if you’re going to try to mix things up in 2012, tell us about it.

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: Goals for 2012

 

  • I will strive to lose 2 pounds per weigh-in.  While it may not happen every single week, if it happens most weeks, I’ll make great progress again. I want to focus on small numbers rather than the big one (because the numbers do matter to me.)
  • I will strive to track my food intake as accurately as possible everyday.  I tracked religiously during the first year, and it kept me accountable.  I’m doing it again and plan to continue.
  • I will strive to increase my endurance on my bike.  I’m comfortable with 10 miles now, and I want to be comfortable with 100.  I don’t have a timeline for this (because I don’t know exactly what to expect,) but I’m going to see what I can do!

 

Now it’s your turn to share your goals! Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments! Happy Monday, and Happy New Year!

      Making them manageable seems like the key to me. I guess we’ll see! =)

    In 2012 I strive to get back to doing what I know I ought to do. In April 2010 I embarked on my mission and kicked butt for about a year before relapsing for much of 2011. I know what to do, now I just got to do it do it do it.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year Kenlie! I like your resolutions. Reminding myself to focus on moment and concentrate on what I can do today and this week rather than constantly looking at the big picture and how much weight I have to lose will be key this year. Can you remind me what brand your bike is? It looks awesome! Have fun and best wishes for a great 2012.

    I posted my resolutions here: http://anewertammy.com/2012/01/02/2012-resolutions/

    Here are my resolutions if you can call them that…I am trying to think of them more as baby steps…I never seem to keep big resolutions but am hopeful that this year if I just focus on small steps &celebrate the minor changes I can make a bigger impact on my weight loss. Hooves crossed!

    I’ve set goals, rather than resolutions as well.
