Changing goals

Up until 2:30 this afternoon, my goal for the nutrition challenge that starts tomorrow was to complete it and get a handle on my eating. I was really thinking that I would be facing restricted activity for the foreseeable future. Since I have no desire to get over 200 lbs, I wanted to get my eating in line to keep my weight in check. Now that I have basically been given the green light, I think I want to set a goal. I work well with goals, I just can't decide what kind of goal to set. Should it be a weight goal? We earn points for the things we do, so should it be a point goal? I'm really torn. I definitely want to get my eating in line as I'm pretty sure this shoulder is going to require surgery so I will be facing a time of little activity, but that will not be for a while. For the next 45 days I am free to do as I please, well to do what I can. I'm starting adding walking in tomorrow morning. 20-30 minutes on the treadmill to start. I still have the hope of running, but I think I'll wait until there is a little less weight on my knee. I would love to get into the 160's. That would mean 25 lbs in 45 days. Not unheard of, done by many people. It will take dedication and commitment. Can I do it? I don't like setting goals that I know I won't reach, but at the same time I don't want to set a goal that is too easy. Decisions, decisions. I will sleep on it and decide in the morning. Good night.

Happy New Year

So here it is. 2018. We had some friends over last night and it was fun. Thankfully, everyone left by 10 pm and we headed to bed by 11 pm...
