Summer Goals...

Thursday, May 27, 2010

This is basically a revised version of my 2010 goals...I haven't made much progress on them up to this point in the year. The work/grad school combination was pretty brutal this semester, including a reading practicum that was like student teaching on steroids. The great news is that I will be done with my Master's degree in July!

Anyway, on with the goals...

• Cardio at least 4 times a week (DVDs, recumbent bike, walking, etc.)
~ Ride stationery bike while watching TV
• Incorporate strength training by middle of July (DVDs)
• Plan out week’s workout schedule each weekend
• Do stretching/yoga 3 times a week (DVDs)
• Track exercise in SparkPeople exercise tracker
• Wear pedometer daily, track steps on SparkPeople

• Eat breakfast at home
• Eat at the dining room table (meals, snacks)
• Eat away from my car
• Carry a water bottle with me to drink from
• Limit McAlister’s sweet tea to 1 time a week
• Track food in SparkPeople nutrition counter
• Use smaller plates, bowls, glasses, silverware, etc.

• Listen to relaxing music
• Work on “zen book” (binder full of calming images and words)
• Use neck pillow
• Do stretching/yoga DVDs 3 times a week

• Eat dinner with Matt—at the table
• Check planner daily—keep in purse
• Make the bed 4 times a week
• Go through Cooking Light, Clean Eating, and Healthy Cooking magazines to find recipes I'd be interested in making, and then recycle the issues

    Great goals! McAllister's has the best sweet tea! I don't know what they do to it, but it is soooo good. I love my recumbent. I find a good show and start pedaling. Congrats on your degree. I'm hoping to start grad school next year, when I figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Keep up the good work!
