Hooray, I have finally got my priorities tweaked and knew that I had to start making my goals! Some people are able to make monthly goals- however, I need to have them weekly. I find I get away from them too easily if I have a whole month…it is a weird mind game I play with myself!
So here it goes, my first set of goals while living in Germany!
Run at least 3 times this week! Go for 20 minutes each time (easing back into it). For the 3rd run aim for 24 minutes!
Complete 2 yoga workouts
Complete 1 pilates workout
Complete 1 Shred OR a toning workout of my own
Allow for a few indulgences on 4th of July. If I completely restrict, I am setting myself up to binge (just being honest). So it is simple: If you want a treat have it.
Get back to healthy, natural foods for meals and baking.
Aim to have clean eats with treats thrown in as extras.
Make a new item for dinner at least once
Track food and how it is making my belly feel (prep for doctor appt. on the 15th)
Take 1 hour everyday for my exercise, and mental quiet time. Usually this would come in the morning when Gavin has a nap. Read, relax, run, yoga, pilates, baking….just take this time and make it my own without interruption (that I can avoid).
Write in a journal EVERY NIGHT to get out anything that is stressing, bothering or causing anxiety. Review those stressors and come up with ways to help ease them!
If I need help, ask for it and receive help that is offered. If I feel like I need to go for a walk on my own, I am going to enlist the help of a neighbor and then offer the same help in return. If I am feeling like I need help around the house, I will ask Eric to give me a hand. I will try to stop being in control of everything and just ease up on how much I am putting on my plate!
Do two things that I wouldn’t normally do with the boys. I always get wrapped up in them getting too dirty or making a mess. We have been getting past that slowly but surely. This is something I have been doing the past couple of weeks (painting boxes without restrictions or rules, throwing our packing materials around to make fun climbing piles, messing in the dirt, etc.)
I hope you all have a great week and I look forward to posting these goals on my fridge and keeping to them!!!
