I am really enjoying making these mini monthly resolutions-slash-goals with myself. These are the challenges I have set for myself that I intend to implement into my general lifestyle throughout the year. That said, it is important for me to not take my “failures” too seriously. It has been said that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit.
Here is my wrap- up of how it went last month.
Goal: To get to a three-minute plank.
How it went: I’ve made it to 2 minutes and 10 seconds. I am only practicing my planks at the end of my BootyBarre classes, so I’m already buggered.
Goal: To have four consecutive nights per week sans alcohol.
How it went: I’ve made it consistently to three days, but still working on the fourth. To be fair, there has been a lot of birthdays and weddings last month.
Goal: Pre-work swims in the ocean.
How it went: Sadly I have yet to fit this in, it keeps raining! I have been able to get to the ocean post work, so I’m going to chalk that up as a semi-success.
Ride my bicycle more. I’m more of a sundress and cruise bike rider than full lycra, sprint and sweat rider. Ladies, do you understand this vibe? I just rode my bike to work for my evening sessions at JMP and I can’t really figure out why I have yet to do this. I’m already going to get sweaty when I teach, so what harm does a little pre- class warm-up do? I’m definitely adding this extra bit of pleasure and exercise to my regular routine.
Food. I want to try and make at least one new recipe a week. With all of these amazing recipes that I see daily on Instagram, why do I often find myself making the same meals? Change is as good as a holiday, and food for me is the best part of holidays.
Read. I’m finding myself falling asleep to “Making of a Murderer” rather than slowly winding down my body with a good book. Mental note, read more.
What are your mini-goals?
