Last year, I set a goal of being fit by my birthday in early November. I lost about 30 pounds and got to where 30 miles was my minimum bike ride (I became pretty fit). I reached this goal well before my birthday by creating and meeting smaller goals, such as a certain amount of miles cycled in a week or time spent on the treadmill. I also started to set reading goals. I discovered if I read forty to fifty pages a day or when I had the opportunity to read, I would stay connected to the book I was reading even if it wasn't wowing me. At that pace I was reading about a book a week. I'm going to keep doing this and make it a goal this year to read a book a week.
