Summer goals

Saturday, June 11, 2011

So, summer has begun! Hubby and I kicked it off with a relaxing 9 day beach vacation!! We had a blast! It was nice to take a break from reality. I was very bad with my healthy decisions and took a vacation from those as well. I am not upset about it. I enjoyed every beer, cocktail, glass of wine, hamburger, sushi, and more that I indulged in.

With that said, I do have goals for this summer and over indulging in food and drink is not in that equation. I took my vacation from life, now I'm back and ready to rumble!!

Summer is a great time for me. I have about 2.5 months off to get stuff done around the house, get fit, relax, watch the nieces and nephews, and more. So, I have things I want done this summer. I think a big list of summer goals is fitting. So here it us....in categories...lol.

Goals for me:
~Learn portion control.
~Maintain 1200-1500 calorie diet.
~Lose between 10 & 15 lbs.
~Run 5 miles without stopping and at least 9 miles each week.
~Cardio 6 times a week and strength train 3 times a week.
~Further my education so I can become a better teacher. (Literacy 1st workshops and Harwelden workshops.)
~Read. Spend time reading and relaxing.
~Buy new clothes because I HAVE to from weight loss. :)

Goals for the house:
~Finish journey wall. Put pictures of all our journeys in frames and put up on wall around big journey picture.
~Finish antiquing guest room furniture.
~Find master bedroom furniture and redecorate master bedroom.
~Landscape front and back yard.

There are more, but I can't think of them. I'll add to the list as I think of more goals.

I am looking forward to this summer of getting things done. Last summer, I got married, moved into a new home, and was still waiting tables as a second job. I had no time to get stuff done. Now, I have plenty of time and I'm looking forward to it!!

Happy Summer to everyone!!

    Those sound like so much fun! Shopping for new clothes that fit well is always great! Have you started a list of books to read? And I love that you want to become a better teacher, that's admirable. :)
