What are you going to do today???

We all make promises to ourselves that sometimes start with "Tomorrow I am going to... (insert goal/desire here)."

In my past I have stated the following:

Next week I am going to start running.
Tomorrow I am going to get back on track with weight watchers.
Next month I am going to start keeping my house clean.
Tonight I am going to wash my dishes.

Tonight, tomorrow, next week or next month comes and I have already forgotten my goal or I make an excuse as to why I can put it off another day. The only way I personally can ensure tonight comes without forgetting the stated goal is to begin now. I think the more reasonable our goals the easier it is to begin working toward those goals.

  1. OK, I'm going to follow your lead. Last year I only did one 5K run (Terrapin in Chicago) and one 1 Mile Swim (Abu Dhabi). And when I watch all the FB chatter from my sisters about races and goals I feel a little slumpy. So here's my plan:

    I am going to participate in more than two race events this year. How's that for a vague goal??
