One of the things that I teach when I teach goal setting is that you want a couple of B-HAG’s (Big Hairy Audacious Goals), to stretch you, get you out of your comfort zone, and to add some energy to your life, but is also good to have a couple of goals that will be quick wins so that you get motivated to keep pursuing the rest of them. I had written several that I anticipated that I would put in the win column fairly soon, and I did, but one I expected to be a grind, and a possible loser, has turned out to be a big win, at least in the first 4 days. It probably isn’t really a valid win because there is so much time to go before I am a conqueror, but I am super excited by the early success anyway. So far I have lost 7 pounds on my diet goal!!!๐Ÿคช My goal was to lose 1 lb by now, 1/4 pound per day. I know, I know, I can hear you say it, it is just water loss. Listen, if you are going to be involved in helping me accomplish my goals you need to be positive and encouraging even if you know it is bogus loss. I am so stoked right now I know I am going to conquer this one. I haven’t really been doing any real hard dieting, just eliminated sugar, flour, potatoes, and rice and I am staying conservative on my portions. So my goal was 37 lbs, and Now it is 30 lbs, super. Another one of my goals was to fast 36 hours straight once each week, and I haven’t done that one yet, so I am anticipating that I will pick up an extra pound of loss when I do that one tomorrow. Actually, official start time is 7:00 pm tonight and then I will eat breakfast at “Men’s Breakfast” at JBC Saturday morning. Great way to break a fast, 15 pieces of bacon and scrambled eggs!!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
