Goals, goals, goals.

I made my goal of 500/day for the last week.

Today is Monday and I’m already behind on my 1k/week goal for this week. As in 1,000 words behind. No matter, the week is young and I have plenty of time to catch up.

Ultimately, to a certain extent, it boils down to time management and choices made. I will be away from home for the next three days, so it’s going to be a bit of a struggle to find the determination to continue my routine in a different place.

I liken it to my goal to lose 50 pounds by this time next year. The calorie counting is tedious and can often be frustrating when I can’t see the results — sort of like writing, where you build step by painful step at times, only to delete it all in a fit of pique because the writing went somehow awry. But you can only continue, even when you cannot see the point of the pain, because the alternative is unthinkable.

So, that 1k/ day. And the 1.3k cal limit per day. And the 30 min of exercise that I should really try to work in despite the evil day job kicking my caboose. And my goal to actually do something with my blog. And the reminder to tweet something useful or interesting or promotional  or anything, really.

If I manage all that, maybe I’ll reward myself with a 800 calorie triple chocolate meltdown this weekend.

I’ll try to post some sort of plan for my blog tomorrow. Or later this week, if we’re being honest.
