It's been quite awhile since I've posted my goals. This month I joined the Get Movin' Colorado Challenge through LiveWell Colorado and MapMyFitness to get 30 minutes of activity for 30 days in May. So far I'm off to a good start, I've done 40 minutes or more all three days. I think I can keep this streak going!
I'm trying to get people in my office on board with going for a 30 minute walk everyday. Since we always eat our lunches at our desks anyway it's not like we have to take an extra break! I'm feeling very positive that I can do this. I'm hoping that this challenge will make 30 minutes of activity a habit for me. Since normally I'm pretty good with the nutrition part of my healthier lifestyle, and my biggest challenge is finding the motivation to exercise.
So here are my three goals for May:
*Get 30 minutes of physical activity every day.
*Actually wear my pedometer everyday.
*Get at least 50% of my house mother-in-law approved clean and organized.
For the past few months I've had a hard time remembering to wear my pedometer. Once I get back into the habit of wearing it everyday I will set a daily step goal.
I have to admit, I am an extremely lazy person when it comes to house work. Most of the time I have clutter and dust everywhere. I am very, very, very embarrassed my the state of my house, so much so that I rarely have company and even my mother-in-law hasn't been invited to my house in over a year (and she only lives about 2 miles away). Don't get me wrong, I love my mother-in-law and she isn't one of those people that comes through with a white glove or anything, in fact, she probably doesn't even care. I am just tired of living in a dirty house.
I think I can do it. Besides, we're hoping to sell our house sometime between now and next summer so I better get on the cleaning!
