And Again…

Well, there has been no joy in Mudville on the job-hunt front of late but all is not gloomy.

 I’ve lost some lbs and I do so enjoy when that happens!!  Yeah, I gained some back again, but I’ve lost it now and things are looking up and forward on the weight-loss path if not the job-hunt path.  And now the weightloss tracker at MyFitnessPal is working again, so that’s always encouraging to see the numbers increasing in this case!!

So despite all of my optimism and happy intentions from my last post, motivation has wanned and needs to be re-booted (as does my butt, frankly).  Time to give myself a deadline and target – I think I’ve heard of that before….  I think it’s called a goal??  Yeah, yeah, a Goal, that’s the ticket!!  So let’s do that!!  Hmm…  what’s a good goal??

I know I was VERY excited when I cracked the last 10 pound barrier that had been teasing me for several months, so how about setting my new goal as cracking the 10 pound number that I’m facing now?  Now, don’t get me wrong – that’s not a 10 pound loss, I just mean getting through to the next 10 number on the scale (going from 95 to 87, or 63 to 58, for example – breaking the 10 pound mark).  I think that’s a reasonable goal – I’ll set that for the goal for the next month – getting to and into the next 10 mark!  And the timeline?  Ok, more specific.  How about before the pool party (Yikes!!) in mid-July?  I think that’s gonna work.  Break the 10 by mid-July, Yes!!  (Yeah, I know you want it more specific, and in my head it is I’m just not writing the numbers and dates 🙂 )  At the very least, having written this down and posting it, I’m thinking it will make me somewhat accountable to myself.

So there it is.  A goal and a plan (remember the plan from the last post?  That plan!)  Here goes!
