Goal Check In

Monday, April 02, 2012

Well, I'm back to check in about the smaller goals I set in March.

1.) Drink 8 cups of water every day. (I had a really good run of drinking 8 cups a day for about two weeks, but I fell off the water wagon. I don't know why but I find it really hard to meet the 8 cups a day. I can't pinpoint why I struggle with it either. I do know that I was feeling much better when I managed it. Maybe I can make it a goal to drink 4 cups and work up from there? Once it's a part of my routine...)

2.) Workout 3x a week at the gym, on home days do at least 10 minutes of any activity. (I'm going to give myself partial credit on this goal. I was a lot more active last month. It wasn't exactly how I'd planned, but I did a lot more than I normally do and I'm pretty proud of myself.)

3.) Really work on trying to stress less. Everything will all work out. It always does. Ask yourself: Will this really matter to me a year from now? Five years? Ten? (The success of this goal is hard to measure. Especially since there was a TON of stressful stuff to deal with in March. I think I need to make more concrete, measurable goals.)


1. Drink 4 cups of water a day.

2. Move for at least 10 minutes a day. It doesn't have to be a "workout". Ride bikes with the kids, do jumping jacks, play the Wii. Just something. I'd really like to reach 1,000 minutes this month.

3. Start a lifestyle change journal and write something in it everyday. It can be an inspirational quote or reflection on Spark People articles. Be positive!

I'll be back at the beginning of May (OMG how is it April already?) to check in on these goals!

    I always forget that tea or Crystal Light counts. Now if coffee counted... I'd be in business. LOL

    The water thing is an area I struggle with too, but I also include if I drink tea or crystal light or something. It's on my April goals list too!
