Warmer weather calls for picnics, outdoor gatherings and chilled wine!Read More
I have never really set goals for myself in the past and if I did they were very unrealistic so I would just set myself up for failure. I have been toying with the idea of actually setting goals that I could reach to help motivate myself and feel more empowered and in control. My goals are mainly focused on personal fitness, but the main goal is inner happiness. I want to reach my fitness goals in ways that make me happy.
I am not saying that I lack happiness, there is definitely a lot about my life that I am thankful for and extremely happy about. I think it is the hustle and bustle of adult life that has just made me detour and forget that I am one lucky girl to have some incredible people in my life.
I think what really made me realize this was when I was FINALLY starting to put our scrapbook together for this year and was reminded of all the fun things we did. I only finished up through march and had to buy extra inserts so that should tell you how busy we were at the beginning of the year!
I want to remind myself and those I love that I care for them. I want to make food and drink wine with great people. I want to create endorphins the natural way and kick butt at barre. I want to grow stronger and have more energy.
I am going to start setting goals for myself each month and week so that I don't get discourage mid-month and relapse. I think that I deserve to love myself more than that. I AM worth more than half-assed progress.
Part of my goal making journey is that I want to make REALISTIC goals. This month's goals are going to focus on what makes me happy.
When October is over I want to feel proud of myself for doing things that make me happy. I want to find peace, even if I don't lose as much weight as I would like I want to feel stronger, I want to feel happier, and I want to feel in control. Happiness is something I want to find within myself and be able to control.
My October Goals:
- Focus on something each day that makes me Happy
- Go to Barre 3 times a week
- Do some form of cardio 3 times a week
- Don't give up wine
- Make dinner at home 5 times a week
- Have new content for the blog 2 times a week (this one's for all of you!)
I hope that you have a wonderful month full of happiness. Spend time with those you love. Spend time doing the things you love even if you do them in the presence of company or alone. I hope to find peace and happiness. Tell me about your goals and how you reward yourself when you reach them... I definitely need ideas.
This is the first time I think that I am officially setting goals for myself so if you have any tips please share!
