April's Goals - 2nd Quarter 2020 - Keep Going

Sunday, April 05, 2020

Overall March goals went well:

emoticon I have been doing some ST every day.
emoticon I logged my food and exercise every day and so far have an 80 streak for tracking both.

But March, for me, as is the same of most of us, has brought really exhausting, struggling times. My father passed suddenly in March. My cat also. Then COVID-19 has brought limits here. The church, greatly needed in this time, is only on-line.

And yet, I am thankful that I do the type of work that can be done from home. I am thankful that my mom is such a strong woman and adapting to my dad’s passing. I am thankful I have internet and heat, and food. I am thankful I have good friends who look in on us and us on them. I am thankful for the wide-open spaces here where we can walk and play and breathe fresh air.

So, as a new quarter of 2020 begins … and as Easter is nearly here with all its beginnings … and as a new 5% Challenge is beginning as well – here’s my goals for April.

emoticon In these times when my patience and humor are low, I will practice the pause. I will count to 5 before I respond to anything with anything other than a smile.

emoticon And I will commit to take care of myself with 5 hours of fresh air and outside time each week.

Also, I will commit to
emoticon 12K Steps per day or more
emoticon 15 flights of stairs per day
emoticon Log all exercise and nutrition here on Spark
emoticon Have a ½ Plate of veggies or fruit with every meal
emoticon Call a friend or family member every day

    Great goals. Challenging times for sure. I’m so sorry for your losses Diane. Didn’t realize you lost your cat too. You have fantastic goals, a good support system, and excellent attitude and plan.

    Fantastic goals! You are doing so well in spite of everything.

    I too really miss church and the social connections I have there. It is difficult being at home all the time and not talking to people. But I know it won't last forever at least!
