Day 1... of March... Really

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Since I wrote my March goals two days late and already blew a couple, I decided yesterday was February 30th and there is no March 1st and 2nd. So today is the first day of March.

I'm not feeling fabulous (I refuse to get sick dangit), so an easy day overall ahead. First up is to finish reading for class, then make a list of everything that's stressing me out. Why? So I can then make action plans for each and a timeline. What doesn't HAVE to be dealt with right this second? Or what little steps can I take to start losing those problems? The action plan is always open to change, but I need to feel in control and like I'm taking steps to make my life easier and better.

For my first day, I'm rocking the report card goals. I'll hit 6, not 5, servings of freggies, will bypass 45 minutes of working out (I need to do yesterday and today's butt lift deal), not eating out at all, will review my proposal, and clearly, I'm blogging. No language work today, but dude, I have a month to do two chapters. CUT ME SOME SLACK! I kid, I kid. emoticon

I'm feeling good about all of my decisions so far. I ate some junk last night and was SO unsatisfied. Life is good.

And hilarity at best. KULA and I signed up together for a 5k in April... hoping to motivate us to get on the stick, maybe do C25K. Yyyaaahhh... well her sister started it... does that count??? Ha! We never had the intention to do it for speed or to be "runners", we just wanted something to hold us accountable. Apparently when you put two people together who STILL don't get that runner's high thing, this was not the best use of money emoticon. We're still going to do it! Even if we walk it... we'll be walking rockstars emoticon.

    LOLOL I kind of stalled at Week 4 when I got sick so I'm going to backtrack to Week 3. But technically, yes, I started C25K. Thanks for the shout-out! You can count me in as person #3 that does NOT understand that runner's high thing (which I think is really a total fallacy.........).

    ROWDYRILEY has some good advice - try not to stress too much about the things you can't control.

    And get some rest - don't get sick!

    It's good to write down the things that are stressing you out. It gives you the opportunity to look at them objectively. My suggestion....put those items into 2 columns. 1 column "Those things I CAN control" and 2nd column "Those things I CANNOT control". Items in the second column, you need to let go of (I know! Easier said that done!). But the only thing you can control with those items is how much you stress over them.

    And for running, it's definitely an acquired taste emoticon Good for you guys in going through with it!

    I loved doing my first 5K! I was slow and didn't run as much of it as I would have liked but it was still totally worth it! It'll be fun:)
