Six Weeks of Giving Up LAZY!

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

I'm setting a Lenten goal of getting off my duff and being ACTIVE for the next 6 weeks (and hopefully by then I'll have made a habit of it, and it will be nice enough I can actually run and walk outside again.) I have been slacking SO MUCH lately, and I know part of it is because my thyroid is all out of whack, but I can offset that with coffee. I'm also scared to move on the new job issue, but I'm even more scared of being stuck where I am.

So today is day one of my regimen and I have to get my hair cut this afternoon, which sort of throws off my plan, but not really. My lenten resolutions include:

1. No alcohol except for Friday wine.
2. No playing computer games until after Little Bear is asleep at night.
3. No just sitting around while he's napping. Either clean the house, dance, or work out.

4. I vow to do SOME kind of exercise every day, even if it's just 10 minutes, to get a 6-week streak with my SPAT.
5. Write something useful every day.
6. Study for the ACE every day.
7. Do something new-job-related every day (sign up with new company, inquire about a freelance job, whatever.)

The only person who is going to change my life for the better is ME. I have six weeks to set new habits. I can do it. :)

  Way to go ! I informed my bosses that I was giving up overtime for Lent (mind you, I'm not Catholic, but am fully willing to participate-if that's even allowed) In any event, I'm hoping this will get me back on track with running goals, because 90+ hour work weeks have been seriously hampering my efforts. Just wanted you to know that you company emoticon

    The toughest part is RIGHT NOW - getting the ship moving. Keep us posted on the studying and "non-fitness" goals. I bet that getting any one of these going will make the others more do-able. Let's tackle our plans, get on our feet (spoken just having woken up from a nap! emoticon ), get up and MAKE IT HAPPEN!
