Goals

I missed a week of goal setting last week and even though I'm not feeling all that great at the moment (Crohn's-related issues, doctor later this week) I wanted to set a few goals to keep me on track until I am feeling better.

1.  Do not get discouraged.  

I don't talk much about how having Crohn's Disease derails affects my life on this blog or in real life.  But I'm not feeling very well this week and as a result I haven't felt like doing any exercising, walking included, since Saturday.  I know it is not my fault.  I know I am doing everything I can to feel better and get back to PRing my Fitbit stats and increasing my running distance.  But while I'm out of commission I want to challenge myself to keep my eye on the end goal of losing weight and not worry too much about the minor setbacks on the way.  Even if I can't workout this week, it doesn't mean that I will never be able to workout again, or that I will never reach my weight loss goals.  It just means I'm having one bad week.

2.  Stay on top of my calories.

I wrote yesterday about the calorie budget and this week it will be more important than ever for me to keep my eating under control.  I won't be earning as many extra calories from exercise as I normally would, but that's okay.  This just means that my meals will involve more fruits, veggies, and filling whole grains this week.  I'm okay with that.

3.  Rest.

Rest is not a bad thing.  Maybe my body is telling me I need to slow down a little.  Get a little more sleep.  Be a little less stressed.  I'm going to do my best to  relax and enjoy the week off. Hopefully I will be well enough to go back to my regularly scheduled workouts soon.
