This Week's Mini-Mini Goals

Monday, August 06, 2012

I'm keeping last week's goals around (no weighing until next Sunday, no tearing myself down (rephrased: actively building myself up), make sure to move during the workday), but because they're things that used to just be part of my daily life I'm adding more mini-mini goals for the week:

1. Come up with a new plan for lunch - I am so incredibly tired of what I have been eating that I either have to choke it down or eat an hour late so that I'm starving and would eat pretty much anything.

2. Go out with friends twice. I think I have this planned already, but I'll make sure it happens! (Backup plan: go out twice all by my lonesome and make even more new friends.)

3. Deal with my closet...I hope to clean my whole house because I have been putting that off for a long time and that's really not like me, but I have to at least get the laundry out of the basket and onto hangers so it won't take me 30 minutes to get dressed. This will also give me a chance to put aside the things that are way too big now.

There are a million other things I want to do, but this will have to be enough commitments for the week on top of:
- 4 zumba classes
- 1 more yoga class (I am SO sore from the one yesterday even though I'm the one who requested hip openers)
- 5 days of Ripped in 30 (finishing week 1, starting week 2)
- 2 belly dance classes
- salsa dancing at least one night but I think three? two? We'll see.
- making sure I get at least 1450 calories a day because I can feel myself wanting to revert to not eating enough and I'm way too close to my goal to let that happen

I broke in my new salsa shoes Saturday night and learned that they are truly the missing link in my turns, but during the process I failed to notice that they were causing some serious blisters on my toes. Between that and the post-yoga soreness, the hobble I'm rocking today is quite attractive.

    You certainly are one ambitious woman, ELIZABETHDS! Good for you! Go for it!

    Regarding #3... further than your closet... to your clean the whole house comment. Have you ever checked out FlyLady? I am on the FlyLady Peace is Mine SparkTeam that has really helped me start to get my arms around my home. (Notice I said start to. I am what they call a FlyBaby!) It's just an idea...don't know if it would be for you, but you could take a look. There are checklists and mostly short duration activities that help you declutter, organize, and clean. It might be worth a look/see.

    Also thanks for your comments on my Polenta blog. I don't shy away from sweetners such as honey or maple syrup. They don't seem to be triggers for me, thankfully, so I can effectively have small quantities. I really do like the Polenta with just a bit of maple syrup. If I do make it again with the dried cranberries and cinnamon, I'm going to divide my recipe to make a smaller quantity. Eight servings is just way too much of just about anything for me. Besides, I'm missing my previous three go to breakfasts of oatmeal, brown rice, and various smoothies. One thing for sure, I do like variety.
