Hey everyone as you have obviously been able to tell I didn’t keep up with my goals for myself challenge. I’ve just been so busy lately, and I know that that can’t be an excuse, because life is always busy, but that’s my excuse. I’ve had so much going on, and I just got lazy. I guess that’s the reason why I fell off track. I just got lazy. I mean in all actuality my goals were simple. They were to write everything about my healthy life down in a journal including what I eat, and my fitness. Those goals should have been so attainable, they are difficult goals at all, but I couldn’t do it. I guess you can call me a quitter, because that’s exactly what I did. I quit. I would try so hard to eat healthy, and I would wind up being hungry at the end of the day so I would just stuff my face. I guess the way I saw it why be hungry when there is food in the house and I can just stuff my face with it. I was a quitter. I’m ready to start over…again. I’m going to keep it simple, or as simple as possible. Here are my goals for the next 30 days, and these next 30 days start tomorrow.
1.)Take a picture of myself every day to keep track of my progress.
2.)Journal everyday what I eat, and how much I eat of each thing.
3.)Journal every day the exercise that I do.
4.)Weigh in everyday (at least until college) and write it in my journal.
These are my goals, for the next 30 days these are my goals. I know that to many of you these goals seem dumb, and you are far past them, but for me I think that the first 30 days is the key. I need to start slow, and I need to start with these 30 days. I’m not asking myself to track my calories because I know that I will probably just quit, because that can be tiresome sometimes. Right now I just want to write everything down, and if there are days where I want to track then that’s what I will do, but I don’t expect myself to track every day, and I don’t intend to make myself. Hopefully I will blog on a regular basis, but I’m not going to make that a priority due to everything that I have going on right now. Hopefully these goals will motivate me even farther in the future. I mean it is only 30 days after all, and what is 30 days in the grand scheme of things? Not a long time.
Here is an update on everything that I’ve been up to lately. I started talking to a firefighter at the end of June. He’s a great deal older than me, but he treats me like a princess. I’ve never been treated as amazingly as he treats me. He makes me feel special, and I haven’t felt that way in a very long time. We are still talking, and it’s been a little over a month now, so I’m excited that things are still going so well, and that he still gives me butterflies. I’ve been working my butt of trying to get ready for fair working my animals, and giving them baths and everything like that. It truly is crunch time. I’ve also been getting everything organized for school, although I have yet to do a whole lot of shopping for school yet. I have my bedding though, but I definitely need new clothes because mine are just disgusting. I only have two pairs of jeans that I can wear off of the farm, and most of my shirts have stains on them from the farm. Hopefully I’ll be able to go discount shopping at the mall and the outlets soon. Plus I have to buy all of my toiletries and things like that. I did however buy my books and I three of them have already arrived; now I’m just looking for three more to come in the mail! I also finished up my application for my student loan today, and should hear about that sometime in the next 5 days. Hopefully that comes through because I am desperate for money for school. This weekend we have our state dairy judging competition and I feel so unprepared! I need to study my butt of this week, and put it into overdrive because there isn’t much time left! On another note, this morning I got a call from a lady I babysit for occasionally, and her normal weekday babysitter broke her shoulder or something like that, and so I went over there and babysat for a few hours, and will be babysitting for the rest of the week from 8:15-3:30! I definitely need the money, so I am looking forward to it even though I will be missing some great dairy judging practice. Hopefully I will be able to practice some while I am there. The kids are usually pretty good haha. Well, I guess that’s about it for now! Hopefully I will have a positive blog post for you all soon, about the amazing progress I am making towards my goals. :p
Good Luck Everyone!!
