May 2013 Goals

Monday, April 29, 2013

So I'm feeling like I need to put this down on paper for next month. I feel like I'm heading in the right direction for making progress, but I know how easy it can be for me to slip up and fall off the wagon. So here's what I feel I need to do to be successful in May.

1) Drink 2.5 L of water, or 10 glasses. I've been able to do this most days, but I need to remember this!
2) Try to work out at least 5 days a week/ 30 minutes per day. I lost my motivation for a little while, but I'm feeling much better about this right now. I may even be able to give my arch nemesis (the ski machine) a run for its money this month! bwahaha!
3) Eat healthy. Live the 80/20 rule. I don't do too bad most days, but my stress level is pretty high right now (life!) so I just need to remember I can't give in ALL the time!
4) Try to keep a positive attitude. I've been having a really hard time with this one.

Here's a few that I REALLY wanna get done this month!

5) Try a workout class at the gym. I've NEVER done one, and there's one Sunday morning for beginners. I'm determined to make it one time this month. There's also a BELLY DANCING class on Thursday night!! Woot!!
6) Take a walk around the hospital in the afternoons at least twice a week. It's getting nice outside, and I'm getting cabin fever.
7) Get some sunbathing in. When I was a kid, I used to lay out on the grass and sunbathe every weekend. Now I'm super pale (years of working graveyards). I miss doing this, and yes, Mom, I'll wear sunscreen! lol
8) Buy myself a new swimsuit. I've had hand-me-down suits from my mother since I became a mom. I want a suit that doesn't scream "I'M A MOM!" everytime I move. I can't honestly remember when the last time was that I bought myself a suit. I have a good idea about what I want, too. emoticon

I'm still working towards the 5 pounds a month idea. Unfortunately, I am VERY far behind. I'm not going to beat myself up about it. This is a process and a life change, and no, I'm not perfect. I'll just keep plugging away till I get to where I want to be. emoticon

    Michelle, You're not 'behind' forget the past and move forward. You've got some good goals set for yourself. My favorite is number 5. My gym offers personal trainer sessions and I really want to take advantage of that, but I haven't yet. I wish my DH would let me take Belly Dancing! I've always wanted to do it! Keep plugging away, give it your best and be happy with yourself!

    Great goals! Yes, definitely get out in the sun, even if for a short time. I enjoy that for my me time, and just let the sun shine on my face for awhile. It's so relaxing, and energizing too.

    You'll do just fine. Being in a funk, and desiring to get back at it, is definitely a sign of growth!

    Great goals. I take a belly dancing class and I love it. I won't say I'm good at it but it has me moving and working my waist. Good Luck
