Hey There Friends! How’s it goin?
I’m super energetic today 😀 After being up for almost 20 hours on Friday, I crashed pretty hard yesterday. I really only got up for meals and that’s just because my grumbling stomach was distracting me from sleep 😆
This morning I woke up with grand plans to be the most productive I’ve ever been on a Sunday but so far that’s been a bust because I seem to have the attention span of a two year old today 😕 But it’s a work in progress 😉
Where’s the Balance?
My one word resolution this year was balance so at the beginning of the semester I came up with a schedule that was supposed to help me achieve that. But… I don’t stick to it at all. Every week is so different that it’s kind of hard to keep up 😕 Assignments, midterms, interviews, events…there’s always something cropping up to throw a wrench in my master plan, making it almost impossible to achieve any of that balance I said I wanted!
I was reading through my super long (like 100+) list of quotes this morning and I think I’ve found my problem – I’ve been thinking too long term. My girl Ashleigh at Passion for Life, Love and Health is awesome about setting weekly goals that align with her overall plan, and breaks down how she does each week in her Scale Saturday posts.
So, I’m gonna take a page out of her
book blog and start giving myself some goals at the beginning of every week so that I can actually get started on this balance thing. I think the weekly goals will give me something tangible to work towards and really help me kick my butt into gear, instead of continuously putting things off.
Not all of my goals are gonna be wellness related so I’ll probably only mention a few here each week but I have a great feeling about this so here goes 😀
Goals for this Week (Feb 16 – 22)
1. Meal Prep Goals
When I was working last semester I had no choice but to prep my meals because I was never at home during the day. But now that I’m in school, I spend a lot of time at home and I thought that meant I no longer needed to do meal prep on the weekends. WRONG!
I’ve eaten out sooo much over the last month or so, it’s actually unbelievable. Sure I made healthy choices for the most part but I could make all of the things I bought just as easily and it’s kind of disappointing that I didn’t 🙁
Goal: To prep the basics for two or three different meals this week.
2. Yoga Goals
When I took my gym hiatus in January, I stayed active at home by doing lots of body weight workouts and yoga. Since I started back hitting up the gym my yoga practice has been pretty much non-existent but I really want to get back into it. I loved how yoga helped me center myself before starting my day and I’m starting to miss it 🙁
Goal: To do yoga at home at least 3 mornings this week
3. Gym Goals
My gym membership was just picking up dust in January and making me feel all kinds of guilty 😕 I started back by going to group classes last week (I did BodyPump, CXWorx and BodyAttack) but I didn’t do any lifting on my own! As much as I love group classes, it isn’t the same as getting in a great workout with just me, my headphones and occasionally, my gym buddy!
Goal: To do weights at least three times this week and still make it to a cardio class like BodyAttack or BodyStep!
These goals are a little ambitious after the last few weeks of general aimlessness but I’m pretty pumped to see how I do so wish me luck! 😀
