Goals, Goals, Goals: 45 Days

Here’s the thing about goals and me: I love goals.  I recognize the importance of goal setting and setting good, SMART goals.  I love to set goals.  I love the feeling of accomplishing goals.  I think setting goals is of utmost important when trying to achieve something.  That said, I’m really not one of those people who is extremely driven by the goals I set.  I guess I’m not a goal-setter by nature.  It’s something I have to work at.

I’m one of those people who tends to set goals and forget about them a week later.  I still think about  and want to achieve my larger goals, but I forget about those small milestone goals I set to help me get to the larger ones.  I had an awesome month in February, and as I sat back and reflected on it, I realized what helped me be so successful in February.  It was that silly little tracking spreadsheet I did using Laura’s setup.

So, since I didn’t  set any goals for March or April (thus far), I’ve decided to start a challenge today.  It’ll run through the end of May so it’ll be a total of 45 days.  I’ll be tracking it using a Google Docs spreadsheet linked below.  You’re welcome to create your own challenge and tracking sheet on there as well.

45 Days Challenge Tracker

So here are my goals for the next 45 days.

fitness.
run 21 times
bike/ spin 7 times
14 strength training sessions
100 push ups challenge (3x per week/ 6 weeks)
food.
track 40 days
eat 240 servings of fruits or veggies
drink 4,500 ounces of water (average 100 ounces daily)
make 5 new recipes
wellness/ miscellaneous.
Complete 45 Daily Challenge challenges
weight.
lose 5 pounds

If I complete 8 out of 10 of these goals my reward will be a new swimsuit for summer.  I don’t technically need a new suit since I bought two at the end of last summer, but  I’ve always  loved buying a new swimming suit each summer!

  1. Love that you are writing stuff down! That’s one of the most effective ways to reach a goal!

    I’m enjoying my weekly challenges right now!

    1. Writing them down is never the issue for me. It’s writing them down and finding a way to keep them in the forefront of my mind (i.e. make them something I deal with daily) is the key. Since I have daily tasks (tracking, my daily challenge), I have to look at the spreadsheet mark something down every day so I don’t get a chance to forget about the other goals!
