June goals finally posted

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

June is a perfect month to begin monthly goals. My wedding anniversary is June 1st. My favorite person in the world's b-day is/was June 3rd (my grandma. She would be 101. She had such a hard sad life and yet persevered through it all.)

I am signed up for a 5Krun/walk this Saturday. It was a spur of the moment decision, but I needed that to get my butt in gear. Also, I *think* I might have bipolar. A slight case anyway. I've struggles with depression, good days/ bad days, just like everyone I think. But things have been said to me, or things happen and I have been thinking on them. I have most of the markers so anyway, I decided I need to exercise as part of my dealing with it, and life in general. Heck, if I am wrong, not a prob. :-)

1) Finish 5K!
2) Participate in my Starfish Challenge daily. I will just "make" the time. I can not use time as an excuse!
3) Exercise as if it is my JOB. Part time of course :-), but daily. My emotional health does depend on it! And I love exercise when I do it regularly.
4) work in the yard more! It's so easy for me to get carried away with housework IN the house, then I never get out, so I will make it a point to do something outside every day. If it's rainy, maybe just going to the mall or museum too. I have to plan some rainy day activities.

    Great goals! I'm the opposite of you, at least this time of the year, I tend to ignore the indoors and head out as soon as I can in the evenings. Yesterday I had to stop myself and do a load of laundry and vacuum before I moseyed out the door. :)

    Bipolar: Good for you to be so proactive! We know our bodies/minds better than anyone, including doctors, so if you feel there's an issue, then there probably is.

    wow - congrats on the 5k coming up - I am just now trying to make a commitment to just train enough to be able to do it.. We shall see.

    Anyway - wanted to encourage with your Outside Goal. I just had a super evening. I've been hosting a Women's Walk on Wed's - an indoor activity. Tonight I invited the girls to meet at my house to do a 2mile walk in my neighborhood. It was SO nice. When they left - I couldn't convince myself to go Inside so I grabbed the broom, a trash can and worked on the front porch, sidewalk, cleaned out the flowerbeds and it all looks so neat and clean and I feel Fabulous. Such a rewarding feeling. YOu will love it and feel awesome. Go for it.

    You can be sure that I included that in my cardio - I worked hard enough for it to count!!
