Daily Goals

I saw this article today, and I realized I’m already pretty good at setting “Outcome” goals and “Process” goals. I have a great set of “Outcome” goals (remember this post).

I also carefully plan my meals every morning – with the aim of keeping my calories between 1200 and 1300 – 35% carbs, 45% fat, 20% protein – two fruits, five vegetables, etc. – stay away from canned and pre-processed foods (too much salt). Additionally, I have my FitBit set to 10,000  steps per day, and I do Tai Chi twice a week, and strength exercises three times a week (at least those are my “Process” goals and I’m pretty good at meeting them most weeks.)

Where I fall down is on the squishier “Daily” goals. So from now on, I’m going to be posting my Daily Goal (for attitude readjustment) at the beginning of my report. Prepared to be bored!


Calories – 1293

Steps – 5460

Calories Burned – 1937

Total grams – carbohydrate – 103

Total grams – fat – 68

Total grams – protein – 71

Total weight loss – 68 lbs

I’ve been fighting a scratchy throat and runny nose for several days, and I just didn’t feel like hitting the gym or doing any sustained walking. My stuffy head is better this morning, so I’ll do Tai Chi today. We’ll see how I feel about actually working out after that.
