Goals for the Remainder of the Week

Thursday, January 21, 2010

(First goal is to try and post something like this at the BEGINNING of the week, LOL!)

1 - Reasonable Bed Times, Up and Down
This is consistently the key to my success. Enough rest makes all the difference in the world.

1.5 - Find a better outlet for "Monkey Mind"
Related to the first goal, I need to have something ready to battle the over-active brain attacks. This term, it may even be my textbooks (I dozed off a number of times trying to read my Engineering Economics assignment; go figure!).

2 - Workout, Even Just For 20 Minutes
There's just no good reason not to. The benefits of strength training are showing up and... well, it's nice to see my triceps!

3 - Get a handle on portion sizes
It's not out of control, but I know that I'm pushing the outer limits. I'm accustomed to having more vegetables and fruit in the house for snacking and plate-filling. Winters in the Upper Midwest sure cut into the available selection and I may need to get creative with this one.

4 - Be accountable
Yes, I am, and now I am more so. I have been lazy, the numbers are creeping up on the scale and my sleep has been disturbed. I said it and now I see it; ignorance no more! Excuses be gone!

5 - Celebrate the good stuff
Taking a cue from my SparkFriend LOGHOUSE, I registered for two upcoming bicycle events / fundraisers. My school schedule might not let me do my big ride (the MS150), but I can sneak in a few shorter ride events on my non-school weekends.

I hope that everyone has a terrific week, no matter how it started!
