January's Hopes and Dreams
Sunday, January 03, 2010
It's 3 days into the new year and I'm just getting myself pulled together. Coming home from vacation really throws a monkey wrench into things. Unfortunately, its back to work tomorrow. I'm working on not being so bummed out by work.
-Lose 5 pounds
-Start the Couch to 5K
-15min 5x a week on the elliptical
-8 glasses of water!!
-Try a new recipe
-Read The Spark
-Daily RAOH and Gratitude in my blogs
All of those are completely attainable. I'm armed with amazing groceries, new Under Armour gear, New fitness DVD's, a water filter, blahblahblah. I'm set and I'm determined.
My RAOH for the day would have to be realizing that eating healthy is really cheap. I spent way more on processed foods and fast foods. I got an entire cart full of veggies, fruit, fish, and salad for about $100 at walmart. Picking up a few staples at aldi's and a few things from Sams Club rounded out my trip at just about $150. Keeping in mind that I bought lots of pantry items and filled my pantry with dry beans, tuna, oatmeal, cereal, etcetc. It wasn't hard to pass the candy aisle by or any of the other snack foods. We read labels and kept our choices healthy. We even got some Egg Beaters on sale. Hooray!!
I'm also big on paying it forward and gratitude. I think people take so many things for granted and I dont want to be one of them. Its important to reflect and be grateful for all the good things. For this year I've donated $8 out of every paycheck to the United Way.
I'm grateful for...
all the amazing groceries in my fridge
my amazing supportive girlfriend and roommate
our water filter
our new plates and bowls
new water bottles
the $5 Spark gift certificate that I won
my parents and the awesome presents this year
my ipod touch
The spark book!
and so many other things.
and I wanted to say that I'm sooooo thankful and proud to be the new Team Leader of the Spark Indianapolis team!!! So if you live in my area stop by and post!! This is a large team that I hope to make nice and active. I'm very excited about this, and I think its really starting to look good!
Good luck on your January goals spark!!
Time to wind down and head to bed =]
