Goals to keep me going

Over the past week or two I set myself a few goals. Goals and deadlines are what make me tick. I'm pretty useless without them.

Goal 1:
Lose all the pregnancy weight and a bit more

I didn't want to stuff around with random diets and eating plans also I need to make sure that my body is a healthy one going forward so I bit the bullet and went to a dietician two weeks ago and signed up at the shmancy new Virgin Active.

I am a week and a half into my new, improved way of eating (basically low GI) and it is a breeze so far. Seeing dietician on Friday so will update you then. Been gymming and spinning and powerplating and hiking and am really loving it at this stage.

Goal 2:
Launch a business
that would:
a) Provide me more freedom to spend time with the Band and future children and to allow me to invest time in people, to be there for people if they need me. for example if a mom finds out that her baby has died and needs to speak to someone, I'd like to be able to go be with her.

b) Provide opportunities for incredible women who currently have none. AKA Mavis's sisters.

c) Provide a decent income and a brand new adventure.

I've got the idea worked out and have been speaking to relevant people about it. For now I just need to muster up the energy. I am so mentally demotivated... really battling to focus on my work too. The Band is trying to help me set small steps and deadlines. Once I get going it's ok, but getting going is tough.

You guys need to help keep me motivated, ok?

Been reading your blog and crying. In many ways, I know exactly how you feel. Then again, I have always said that each additional day with my boys would have made it that much harder. I am so very sorry for you. And yes, people saying "there's a reason" doesn't always help does it??
Blessings to you on this fall day.

Hey, I've been reading for awhile but haven't had any comment decent enough to send out there. Just to let you know, you really do impress me with how you are going through these kak situations.

You Band's help on setting small goals to achieve your big venture is the best. I always get lost in the big picture & have to keep trying to just stay focused on the "one step & achievement at a time" thing.

All the best for it! I'm sure I'll read about it.

And don't give up "faith" (?), hope (?), fighting (!), for social justice with Lily. Our government is well aware that our public health systems are in tatters & they mull on about improving it, but they need a fkcing asteroid in the arse to get them seriously moving on it. Your fight helps that asteroid move foward harder, faster & quicker!

CH - thanks for the comment. The Band is the best. so sweet. and I cracked at the mental image of an asteroid up the arse of our government!
