to goal or not to goal

My goals for September didn't go all that well and I have no one to blame but myself.  For some reason I just could not get it together in regards to my eating.  I know that if I continue to eat crap I will not lose the weight I want to before the wedding.  I need to stop making excuses, stop sneaking calories in and start eating at home more often.

I skipped training runs in September.  If I have any hope of running the entire 13.1 miles of my half marathon I need actually do the runs that are scheduled over these last 3 weeks before the race.  I'm also planning to continue running after the race, I'm thinking I'll do at least 2 runs a week from the end of October until the wedding.

Luckily my sessions with the trainers at the gym have helped me tone my arms.  A few people have mentioned that I'm slimming all over!  I signed up for another set of sessions that will take me right up until the week of the wedding.  This makes me feel more confident that I won't slip back into bad habits around the holidays.

My life has been so busy lately that I almost don't want to make goals because I don't think I'll accomplish them.  Between work, wedding planning, the gym and 1/2 marathon training there isn't much time for anything else.  What I really want to do is sit on the couch and watch all the new episodes of my favorite shows, my DVRs are getting full!  But I know I need to stay on track, I always feel better after a workout, even if it's a crappy one.  So, I'm going to make goals that should be pretty easy to accomplish...

Meet my calorie goal each day.

Drink 8 cups of water a day.

Eat out less then 15 times.

Run 65 miles.

10,000 steps per day.
