100 Days to a Better You! – Day 16

Day 16 –

A goal is defined as the state of affairs that a plan is intended to achieve and that (when achieved) terminates the behavior intended to achieve it.

What is most interesting about this definition is it clearly states not only what a goal is but what a goal is intended to do. Goals are plans designed to change your behavior once you accomplish it. What behaviors are you trying to change based on the must outcomes on your 100 plan?

Since one of my must outcomes is to be at a healthy weight at the end of these 100 days, one of the behaviors I intend to change during that process is my poor eating habit. Poor eating habits like eating late, eating too many fried foods, eating too many processed foods, eating the “wrong” kinds of foods at the “wrong” time too often.

Everything in moderation. Its ok to have a burger or a slice of pizza every now and then but its not ok if these foods are part of your daily menu. Yes, they taste better than broccoli but they are not better for you. By increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables I consume each day, I am decreasing the amounts of fatty foods. Once I reach my goal of a healthy weight, what I did to get there would have helped to terminate the behavior that got me to the point of creating this type of goal in the first place.

What I’ve learned in life is that sometimes you’re going to have to do things you’ve never done before in order to see things you’ve never seen before. What are you doing differently?
