My Personal Goals for MB30E

Here are my goals for you all to see.   Lets do this thing!!


  • NO Fried Foods- not a big problem for me but need to cut out completely.
  • NO added butter to anything- this is not a big problem either but adds tons of calories with each spread
  • NO bacon- I eat bacon a lot for breakfast and on sandwiches.  Not now!
  • NO Queso or cheese added to sandwiches – this is a huge weakness for me!  this will be tough
  • 10 chips with salsa- I will practice temperance with this one.  (can you tell I live in TX???)
  • WATER and unsweetened tea, carbonated water, juice, only.  1 small cup of coffee per day.  NO soft drinks– Lately, I have been drinking a lot of Coke and Pepsi.  It has added a lot of weight to me.  Not now!
  • Small portions. I will not get ‘seconds’.  Entrees must be the size of my palm.  This is not a big problem for me, but some meals I eat too much.
  • Snacks must be fruits, nuts, berries.  No sugared cereal.  I eat a lot of snacks that aren’t good for me.  So, I will rearrange this part of my diet.
  • 1 dessert serving per week – I eat cookies, candy, and sugared coffee drinks too much.  This temperance  will help big time!
  • 5 eating sessions per day – I hear that this keeps  your metabolism running throughout the day instead of big crashes and craving/hunger pangs.  The key is to keep them small.


  • I will exercise 4 times per week for over 30 minutes. Riding Bike, running, Wii, sports at gym, etc – I love to be active, but my struggle is consistency.  At my age, 4 times a week is minimal.  I need to really push myself here.


  • I will be in bed by 10:30pm every night.  I will wake up at 6am every morning. – I love to stay up late but it hurts the next day, so I will try this regiment.  I believe the first 10 days will be very tough but then I will catch a rhythm.


  • I will read the Bible for 30min every day. (not relating to sermon prep)- I pray and read a lot for sermon prep.  I need more devotional reading.
  • I will pray everyday for 30min.
  • I will fast one day per week until supper.

EXCEPTION: during college Championship, I will probably eat queso and drink a soft drink.  That will be my ‘dessert’ for the week.  🙂
