Keeping up with my goals.

In the post just before this one I told you that I didn't complete my goal of finishing my book by April 15th.  After thinking about it for a while I decided to toot my own horn and tell you that I have kept up with my other goals.

Back in February I wrote about eating better, exercising and not giving up if I have a day where I fall of the wagon.  I decided that my new daily mantra would be: "Today I will.... (insert goal)."

Guess what!  I have lost 11 pounds and I have been exercising consistently.  This morning I ran 5 miles and shaved 6 minutes off of my running time.

Could I have done better with my weight loss?  Yes, but I am making progress so I am very pleased with the results so far.

How about you?  Have you kept up with some of your goals?


  1. Well, my biggest goal this year has been to write consistently ~ something every day. I have done pretty well with it. I have blogged just about every day. I have missed a day here and there, but I think I have done really well. Some days I have done non-blog writing instead of blog writing. There have only been a couple of days where I have written nothing. So, yeah, I feel good about setting my goal and keeping it.

    Kudos to you on yours:-)

  2. yey!
    sometimes it's good to congratulate ourselves on the good things that we do rather than wallow in all the things we havent done...yet.

  3. That's cool and encouraging. I have the same goal! I wanna look good this summer. Keep it up!
