July Goals Progress--Week 1

Saturday, July 10, 2010

Here are the July goals that I posted last week:

1) 250 exercise minutes per week, starting 07/04/10 -07/10/10.
2) At least one bike ride per week ( I haven't gotten on my bike in over a year, but I'm inspired by one of my Sparkfriends, who is a biking phenomenon).
3) Continue with stress-reducing techniques, to avoid stress eating.
4) Keep my desktop neat and tidy.

This week, I got almost 300 exercise minutes. Goal 1-met. I didn't ride my bike. The East coast got hit with a heat wave, and being hypothyroid, I don't have very good heat tolerance. And today was rainy all day. Goal 2-not met. I have knitted, done yoga, meditated, and stress-journaled all week. Goal 3-met. I have kept my desktop neat and tidy. In fact, all that's on it are my laptop computer, 3 rocks from Seapoint Beach in Kittery, Maine, a rose quartz that my grandfather collected, a blue ink jar that I found buried in my backyard as a child, a crystal bluebird of happiness that my mom gave me while I was going through a major depression, and a painted wooden bobblehead turtle that my husband and I bought while dating. Ready for any impromptu art or craft project I might want to do. Goal 4-met.

    I have a wooden bobble headed turtle too!!! I've had it since I was a kid, it's on my alter!
    You've inspired me to clean off my desk and dressers TODAY! I've joined the 28-day bootcamp challenge so I'm with you on the exercise minutes too ;o)
    Keep up the joyful journey to completing all your goals

    Thanks for the support. I've been working on a blanket for my nephew, so I haven't started on any other projects yet. It's so nice to have a clear surface, ready to use.

    The ink bottle is cobalt, and it's a reminder that if you're willing to look below the surface, you can find some really beautiful things. Believe it or not, I've brought it along with me everywhere I've moved since I left home.

    You did an awesome job!!! Biking in the heat is really hard. I hope you are able to meet all of your goals this week. Did you do any impromptu art or craft project? I loved hearing about the things on your desk. I especially like that you have kept that bottle all this time. What a neat jog down memory lane for you every time you sit at your desk. Special things from special people! emoticon
