I have decided that I'm fed up with the way I've been living for the past few months. Sure, I've got reasons for it, but I'm tired of using excuses for not living a healthy active lifestyle. Today, that changes.
I reached out and told a friend, I need help. He suggested that I come up with a list of goals for the month of December as well as for 2012. I'm still working on my 2012 goals, but they will be broken up into the same categories that I've broken my December goals into.
I've broken my goals into five "F" categories. Fitness, Food, Faith, Family & Finances. Each goal has a point value and there are bonus points earned for every pound I lose. Based on the number of points I earn by the end of the month, I've given myself a list of rewards I can earn. I created a Google Doc spreadsheet to track my points every week. I'll post my progress every week as well.
