This week I’ve decided I need to set some goals for myself. Without goals what’s the point of the journey?
I figured to get started I will make some obtainable goals. In the past I would make goals that I knew I couldn’t achieve. When I wouldn’t achieve them, I could be mad at myself, and therefore sabotage everything in the process. So here is the list
1.Drink at least 1/2 gallon of water a day.
Seems simple enough, right? I can drink 2 gallons one day, and the next drink none at all. I know how important drinking water is for weight loss and really health in general, I need to make it a constant.
2. Stick to my meal plan 100% at least 5 days this week.
On Monday I’m starting a new eating plan that my trainer has given me. Also, I will no longer be eating a plant based diet as I am adding some fish. This was not his idea, it was all mine.
3. Be in bed by midnight, lights out Sunday-Thursday.
I always notice how much better I feel when I wake up earlier in the morning. When I started yoga I was having to go at 1pm because I wouldn’t get up until 11 or 12, and even then that was getting up early some days, haha.
4. Make a new YouTube video.
I’ve really slacked off on this. Mostly because I’ve been lazy with it. I do enjoy making the videos so I want to get back into making weekly videos.
5. Smile more 🙂
Seems silly? I’m very self conscious of my smile because of my front teeth. One chipped, and the other being discolored, and dentist are to expensive. Maybe one day I will get them fixed, or maybe not. I want to stop holding back my smiles!!
6. Walk for at least 20 minutes a day, on top of the normal routine.
Every day before yoga Heather makes me walk to get the blood flowing. I want to walk more on top of that and the normal routine. I have really bad arthritis in my left knee, so I will be pushing through some pain … Thank you Advil, haha
7. Go watch a movie at a theater.
This is another thing I’m self conscious about. I’m always wonder what I will break next, weighing as much as I do, or will I be able to fit into places and spaces. Again it’s about getting over that fear. I know I’ve missed opportunities because of that fear. Embarrassment isn’t fun, but I’m working on changing things.
8. Buy a stranger a coffee.
I go get tea almost everyday at Dunkin’ Donuts so hopefully the opportunity presents itself to me to make a simple gesture for another human. We need more love in the world!!
9. Get rid of some clutter.
I don’t hold on to a lot of things, but there are some boxes I need to go through and get rid of things I don’t even know I have.
10. Look in the mirror everyday and say “I love you.”
Don’t really need to explain this one <3
There you go 10 goals for the week. I know I can achieve them and that’s the point, it’s just about getting started.
I hope you set a few goals this week as well, and start the process of figuring out the destination.
Love to you all
