That’s not a thing, but it should be.
So, I finally figured out what my goals are for May. Each month I like to come up with five goals to concentrate on. If I focus on my goals on a smaller scale (as opposed to throughout the year), I’m more likely to do them. I’ve been doing this since January, and for the most part, I’d say it’s been successful.
Here are May’s five goals:
– Drink more water –> this is especially important this month before the half. I’m usually really good about drinking a ton of water, but I’ve been substituting water for coffee, diet pepsi/coke, and other non-water beverages, which brings me to number 2…
– Drink less empty calories –> we have a Starbucks in our building and a deli across the street that has huge diet cokes. It’s so easy to grab something other than water, especially around 2 p.m. when I hit the wall. However, not only are these empty calories, it is a waste of money, so I’m limiting an outside drink to only once a week.
– Do more yoga –> After the half, I want to do some low intensity exercise for awhile, and I need to continue to stretch. I have 4 yoga DVDs (!) so I really need to start using them
– Eat more fruit –> I’m normally really good at this, but lately, I haven’t been eating as much fruit as I would like. With summer coming up, it shouldn’t be too hard, but it’s still a goal
Take the stairs more –> I spend way too much time in an elevator when I could easily take the stairs. I need to focus on that this month.
I encourage you to pick your five goals for the month — it’s really easy to focus on five things for one month and make things into habits.
Have a wonderful day!
