Do I want to commit to a goal for August? I haven't made a single one of my goals in the timeline I set. Is goal setting good? Does it work for me?
I could easily throw out a reasonable number. I even have the number in my head right now. I actually have an Excel sheet that has the columns of date, -3 pound, -2 pound and -1 pound a week to project where my weight "can" be. I update it with my current weekly weight. I even have highlighted rows for future goal area, like end of July, day of my triathlon and my 10 year wedding anniversary.
My triathlon is quickly approaching. I need to be able to run 3.1 miles straight. Yesterday, I managed to run 1.5 miles non-stop as part of my 45 min treadmill exercise. Should that be my August goal, not a weight one?
I don't know. Does setting a goal just lead me directly to disappointment?
