December Goals

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Here I am late again with my goals. I haven't been on SparkPeople as much lately. I haven't "fallen" off really I just haven't taken much me time lately. I am not eating as healthy but when I look at my habits vs what they were and when I look at others around me (or when they look at me) I still eat pretty dang healthy. I have not worked out as much either. I feel scrawny. I know, some people would probably love to be able to say that but I'm not even fitting right in my clothes and I'm sick of some of the comments I get. I eat very healthy, I work out in good ranges and my labs whenever I go to the doctor are fabulous now so I don't feel comments are warranted. I've had to explain that to people, how healthy I eat, workout, the doctor stuff, telling people I'm not "skinny" I'm really toned and when I show them my stomach or biceps/triceps they are surprised. It's winter people I need to wear clothes..

OK sorry mini rant...so anyway that brought me to not working out as much. But as of yesterday I decided that was stupid. Maybe running three miles three to four times a week isn't needed right now but why can't I go to the gym and walk on an incline and use the recumbent bike and why can't I do my strength training DVD's? If I just stop working out it'll reverse things and it'll affect my energy and mood. Like I said my labs look great and I'm in a healthy range. I think it's more people comparing the difference from before to now and feeling I look skinny because I don't have comments from people who don't know me that are negative it's actually quite the opposite.

I have felt very unorganized lately and as of Monday I started kicking that in the butt. A few weeks ago I cleaned out all my storage bins in the garage which felt great but then I remained flat for a few weeks. Monday I did a major cleaning of clothes and drawers. Getting rid of the clutter felt great and it will continue tonight with deep cleaning of my bathroom and kitchen after my little girl goes to bed. I haven't used my bill journal either. Monday when I was cleaning I found my previous one that I thought was lost and I went out and bought a new 2014 planner. Tonight after I clean the bathroom and kitchen will be bill time. It shouldn't take me long but it'll be nice to have it done.

I decided to do a 100 day challenge to drink at least 8 cups of water. I just made myself sick from dehydration which is stupid on my part. it should be one of the easiest goals to hit yet it's been plaguing me for week.

So here are my goals to finish out the year:
1.) Drink at least 8 cups of water a day for the next 100 days
2.) Check in daily with my Get Organized SparkTeam for the 3 a day challenge and keep up with my bill book and todo list
3.) Log on to Spark People each day and aim at 100 point
4.) Make a less rigorous workout schedule

Update 12/14/13
So here are my goals to finish out the year:
1.) Not doing the best on water. Better than I was but not even a two day streak with 8 cups. Even with having people I've told and I'm trying to stay accountable to. Today is a new day though.
2.) I've been getting things done. I haven't checked in with the team everyday but I've gotten my todo list notebook out and have been using my blog about organization to document projects around the house.
3.) I haven't logged in everyday but I log in more days than not and I usually hit 100 points when I do.
4.) I haven't made a schedule yet but I have been working out.

    Great goals to get you through December.

    Your plan sounds like a good one. Sometimes we just need to take a step back and re-evaluate things.

    I'm weird and love to organize stuff, so that sounds kinda fun to me! Good luck with it though! I know it's hard for some people.

    Sometimes a less rigorous workout schedule is just what we need. I know that I have been hiit-ing hard, so I need a break for a few days.

    Water is sometimes hard to do, but I think you'll get it this time!

    Good luck!!!
