This is my second entry prompted by the Folk Magazine Journaling Agenda, You can find it here.
I got such a great response to last weeks post, thanks for all that read and commented.
This weeks is about my short and long term goals for 2013. Something I really need to think about. I tend to think short term and leave the long term to itself , so to have to think about both is a tiny challenge for me.
Short Term Goals
Right now I am doing the Live Fit training program by Jamie Eason. It is a 12 week program and the first four weeks is no cardio, all strength training. I want to make it through the whole 12 weeks and hopefully by then I will be toning up :). I have gotten through week one with my gym being closed and lost a half inch here and there so I just need to keep pushing through.
Buying some recycling containers. One of my resolutions was to recycle more so I need to get some containers to help me keep everything straight. I have a bag in the cupboard right now holding the things I remember to put in there for recycling.
Get into a healthy eating pattern! Christmas left me so blah an overwhelmed, I put on five pounds and ate way too much sugar. I defenently need to get back on the good eating wagon again.
Continue to be a supportive wife and mother to my gorgeous family and keep doing all I can to help the home front !
Onto those hard to grasp long term goals.
In my letter to myself I noted how I had worked on my anxiety and depression last year. I defenently need to keep working on that this year. I need to learn to let go of things I can't control (and even some of thing things I can) and just breathe.
I want to run some more 5k races and heck maybe even a 10k or two, I don't think I will ever be a marathon runner or probably even a half marathon runner, honestly I am pretty sure I would just get bored. But a 10k is attainable and probably a good aim for me to have.
This is a hard one but I have really been thinking about it these past few days. I need to do a friend cleanse, I know this sounds harsh. But I seem to be the type of person that attracts friends that don't care to put any work into our relationships. I don't know if this is just a thing that happens these days because people are so darn busy these days or if it is something in me that attracts it. But I am at the end of putting all the work and time in of keeping friendships up and having no effort put in by others!
I want to find ways to care for the environment around me more, I am not sure how I want to do this but I want this beautiful world we live in to stay beautiful for my child and his children and their children etc.
Ok its out there on the world wide web ;) Now I have to do all of the above right!! Feel free to check in on me each week to make sure I am keeping up with these goals, actually I would love that!
