Healthy goal setting

I follow ... well a lot of blogs on facebook, and recently added Nerd Fitness (what can I say, I really like the lego action figures!).  Todays post on building healthy habits hit home so I am checking in on my goals for the year.
My goals this year mainly revolve around getting healthy and FINALLY reaching a healthy weight.  But as the year has progressed I have found myself refocusing a bit -
I have mentioned my desire to lose another 40 pounds.  I have been making time for exercise and finding things I really WANT to do.  Not just talking about, doing!  Running (races are fun!), and hiking (Zion at the end of September!) top my list and I have been making time for one or both each weekend.  I have also been taking about 15 minutes or so each evening to do some sit-ups, push-ups, a few minutes to work on balance and flexability.
I want to be able to take a fancy hiking picture in wheel pose and in tree pose!  I want to work on my balance and flexability.
Something I am proud of, is that these goals really relate to what I want, what I think would be a cool accomplishment, these are not goals imposed by outside influences.  Well, the yoga poses while hiking started in Machu Picchu, so maybe Heather has a bit to do with those.  :)
I have also changed the name of my savings account to 'Christy's Travel the World Fund' and am seeing the the balance grow.  :)

I love that we both have savings accounts, aptly named for travel! Oh, and wheel pose -- I want to do that one too! :)
