So it's JUNE! I can't believe how quick the year is going (Now I sound like my mother). Like I said in my blog yesterday, I want to smash through my plateau-ok so it's not a plateu. it's me being disorganised and lazy lol. But I know that I need to have more of a plan-I need goals. So, in the spirit of fast break, three simple goals for the month.
1-Exercise 5 times a week, but in moderation.
Yes, my crazy brain tends to have an all or nothing mentallity. Either I burn 400+kcals a workout, or don't do it. I kind of blame running, I'm so use to burning mega amounts of kcals, that anything less is a crime now. Of course, that's not the only time I've ever burnt alot of kcals in 2 hours, but that was different.
2-Try to take steps to reducing binging purging episodes.
I have been doing this alot the last few weeks, mainly stress related. As a result, I have had a sore throat for most of May. It's not somthing that I'm proud of, but it needs to be dealt with. So, I'm looking at some emtional eating articles and I'm going to try to put some steps into place.
3-Show myself respect and aprreciation.
This came about today. I was doing my 5mile run, and I challenged myself to run a route with a lot of going up hills. I hate hills. But I did it without stopping, and I know exactly why. I had a positive inner monologue, egging me on to do it. All my life. I have just allowed myself to berate and critise myself, to the point where I think if my inner monologue was another person I'd punch myself in the face! I use to have this maths teacher, who I'm pretty sure was an ex con looking back on it-but that's another story-who very passionatly told us that we should never say anything negative about ourselves, becaus if we said it, how could we protest when other people said it back.
So yes, those are my three goals. I need to think about how to best do number three...but it'll get done.
On a completly different note, I found this pic on passiveagressivenotes.com. It's a little mean, but gosh it made me laugh!
