this week's goals:
Monday, April 09, 2012
last week was a *really* tough one emotionally, and I found it very hard to keep my usual habits and stick to my goals. It felt like every day was a struggle uphill, and that I had to focus on basic survival, emotionally speaking, and let a few other goals go.
This week, I'm refocusing and hoping to take little steps back into thriving.
Here are some things I plan to do to keep me "spiraling upward", to borrow a sparkfriend's term.
- Daily exercise. Sometimes it will be intense and strong, other times it will be just a 30 minute jog or a long walk, but I resolve to do something active every single day this week.
- H20: I resolve to drink 64 oz of water each day. Here's how I'll do it:
one pint glass upon waking, one glass with lunch, one with dinner and one before bed, and an extra glass or two with my workout.
- daily journaling: this is probably my most important puzzle piece. When I write, I check in with how I'm feeling, I renew and revise my goals, I remind myself of what I'm working toward and what my deeper goals are, what my priorities and longterm dreams are, and I also do something relaxing and meditative so that I feel better after journaling than I did before.
I hope you all have a wonderful week! My goal is to go from 134.5-133.5 this week -- wish me luck!
Take care, L.
