Weekly Goals on Mondays

Now I don't want to jinx this or anything, but I am finally progressing on some fitness and health goals in my life! Yay! 

I am exercising about five times a week, drinking more water, and currently no Mountain Dew (why oh why does it have to be so darn good tasting, yet so bad for me?!?). And I am putting together some great goals to work towards for not only the year, but for each month, and week even. I am focusing on some weight loss right now because I have been staring at a lot heavier body the past year or so and it is time to take charge!

With all of this being said, I am still not done putting together all of my goals yet. I will share them all once they are finalized and I know I have everything down I want to work towards this year. On the other hand, my weekly goals are more like small components I want to make into habits each week. And Monday is the special day I start set those goals as well as a small weight loss goal since Monday is also my weekly weigh-in. I contemplated on whether I should put a different day, but I think the first of the week is the best time and will hopefully add some motivation for my week.

02.04.13 Goals
  • Weight Loss
    • Current: 162.8
    • Goal: 162
  • Drink more water every day.
  • Exercise at least 5 times this week.
See. Super simple goals that I can focus on for the week and after I think they are strong habits I have developed I will move on to new small tasks. 

Now it is time to study for my first Managerial Accounting Exam of the semester that is tomorrow. Wish me luck and have a great week.

January 9th already

It is January 9th, 2013. We are already over a week into the new year. And even though it may be a cliche, I  kinda love the whole new year resolutions idea. I like to think of them more like goals for the year, and they usually range between many different aspects of my life. For example, last year I had goals to say my prayers more often, exercise, run a marathon, and more. 

But we are already in the second week of the year and I haven't came up with my "resolutions" for the year yet! Argh! I am too stinking busy to do everything that I want. School just started this week, and I am back to working on campus as well as out at the farm during the week. I have a mile long to-do list that I am slowly crossing items off of, but still so many to go. One aspect of my life that I have been busy with (but it's a great busy) is exercising! Yay! I don't want to jinx it yet, but I am working it in to my daily schedule which I love! I've got big plans and dreams for the year and I can't wait to share them on this here blog that I am hoping to post on much much more this year (oh, I see a new years "resolution" in the air right here). Not sure what direction I want to take it. Maybe exercising, cooking, or just my crazy happenings during my last semester of college here at Utah State. I guess we will all see.
