Setting goals to stick to
Tuesday, July 02, 2013
So, I've been thinking about what I ought to do to keep myself from thinking 'I'll do that later, it's okay' and then never doing it.
I think I need to create a check list to start checking off daily.
I bought a jump rope the other day so I can start skipping again, but I'm apprehensive to start as I had torn the interior collateral ligament in my knee 5 weeks ago, and this week is the first week I've been without any bandaging or splint on my leg. I was in a full leg splint for 2 weeks, and then I moved to soft bandage for 2 weeks, and this week, I'm challenging myself to go a week without any form of support. From Saturday until Tuesday I've had no problems, although, after walking 6km yesterday, my knee hurt to straighten as I laid in bed last night. I am hoping it's just the fact that I was stretching the ligaments around the knee that was causing the pain.
I really want to build myself up to jumping rope for 30mins a day, as it used to work for me when I was in New Zealand.
I also want to be able to get a 30min walk in at least 4 days a week.
I've got WiiFit plus as well, and want to be able to find some time every day to do 30mins exercise with that as well.
I fall into the trap of... I can do it later, and later never comes. I need a kick in the butt to do it, and I've gotta be the one to do so.
My goals for this week: - spend 10 mins each day jumping rope (weather and space permitting)
- Do Wiifit Plus for minimum 30mins daily
- Try to encourage my husband to get out for a 30min walk with me 4 days this week.
I'm going to try and blog my progress each day and see if I can achieve these 3 goals by making myself publicly accountable.
As they say here in Korea: FIGHTING!
