As I said yesterday, I wanted to share some small monthly goals today. I have not be seeing the progress in my personal training that I would like to and really I haven’t been seeing the growth in my life in general that I would like to. There are goals that I’d like to meet, like getting a personal record in my half marathon, that aren’t as simple as just training. I need to make sure that I’m eating food that’s healthy, getting enough sleep and having a positive attitude. I find that some areas can be excellent but another area is suffering – no goals are being achieved when there’s not balance.
Start a Bullet Journal
This is my first goal – simply because it has to do with a lot of my other goals. I’m starting small this month – just two different trackers:
Take control of my eating
I haven’t been completely satisfied with my progress with my personal trainer. However, I know I’m putting in the work because I’m definitely getting stronger and upping my weights. My problem is with the progress I see in the mirror. I know that I have been a little too relaxed with my eating and this is impacting the progress I would like to see. A few of my problems that I notice the most: I make a few too many visits to the office candy stash, I rely on fast food options on campus when I don’t pack my lunch, and I could replace the few sodas I do drink with more water.
I will be using my bullet journal to track these along with a few of my other daily habit goals.
Track my Moods
The second tracker I’ll be using in my bullet journal is a mood tracker. I often find myself looking back over the past month wondering where time has gone (raise your hand if I’m not alone here! 🙋). At the end of a week, my husband might say that he’s sorry that I had a bad week and I thought it was a good week but I can’t always remember exactly. I’d like to use this tracker to watch my mood over the month – are there certain times during the month that I’m more like to be stressed or sad, etc.
That’s it for August – I’m starting small with my goals: simply to start good habits.
