Happy Wednesday everyone! This is my first time posting my general goals (you can see my November fitness goals here) but I think it’s important that I start writing them down in some way. Usually I just keep a mental note, but I think I’ve lost track of some of my smaller goals this way. And I definitely don’t want to wait until the New Year to start resolving some things, so here it goes!
+ Be more aggressive with my approach when needed. (Explanation: I’m in sales, and since I’m a woman I often get treated like I don’t know the product I’m selling as well as the men do. It’s crap.)
+ Don’t bring work stresses home with me.
+ Take a multivitamin: still working on it!
+ 3- mile time of 24:00: I got there, but I couldn’t stay consistent. My body is worn out from running that much right now.
+ Maintain my healthy eating habits: Done!
+ Drink more water: complete fail here. I really need to do this one.
+ Consume less sugary drinks: Done!
+ Lose 10 pounds this month: Completely unrealistic. Don’t know what I was thinking when I typed that. Good news: I did lose 4!
+ Reach a 16:30 2 mile time. Slowing it down this time.
+ Balance cardio and weights. I’ve been wearing my body out with the running, and I don’t want to get injuries.
+ Lose 5 pounds. That’s only 1 more than last month, and it’s roughly 1.5 per week. Much more reasonable.
+ Eat more snack in between meals (usually people strive for the opposite but strangely, I never snack)
+ Eat out less
+ Keep a budget for each person for Christmas gifts (I tend to go overboard)
+ Write out a budget plan for bills, car payments, etc.
+ Learn to cook/bake better. I have a lot of baking ahead of me for this month and I really need to get good at it!
+ Worry less about the future, it isn’t here yet. I’m getting worked up about things that aren’t even definite yet.
+ Fill out my planner for the year.
+ Go through mine and Kyle’s jackets and see if there are any we can donate.
+ Judge my body less. It’s been a problem for a while.
+ Find new way to show my appreciation. Kyle does a lot of little things for me that I overlook when I’m grumpy or annoyed that the house is a mess. I need to start recognizing those things.
+ Plan a surprise date. I always bug Kyle about not surprising me very often, but I don’t do it for him either. But I’m going to start!
+ Be more open. This is mostly a goal I have for Kyle, but I think that it’s my responsibility to help him be more open with me. He has a lot of stresses and worries that he keeps inside.
+ Talk about next year. Next year is going to bring a lot of changes for us, with a pending deployment and a million other things. We have both avoided it, but I want to start 2016 knowing exactly what our game plan is.
