I am shocked that the month of January is gone, but not only that but that it is February 1st 2012, that I am 24 and that well life still is not quite on the path I want yet but maybe getting closer, and that well I still have some work to do on my 2012 goals. So where as I am excited that I have been sticking with some, there are others I still need to start/work on.
Here is what I have accomplished the past 2-2.5 weeks.
Goal: Get into a workout routine and keep it.
The past 2 weeks I have done a good job of going to the gym on a regular bases and I think I may of even done better than the first 2 weeks. I am trying to run more, going for longer, and I even did weights one day! Woot Woot! Sadly thought I am eating better (most days) and working out yet I feel like I am not losing any weight. This drives me nuts! However at the same time I feel better, I still love my naps and lazy time but at the same time I am also kind of like "hey lets get this shit done" and I am thinking more about what I put in my body. I have to remind myself that I didn't just put on all the weight and get out of shape in a month that I can't just turn it all around in a month. So where as my progress maybe slow it is ahead of where I was a month ago!
Pulse today which is not on the calender:
Jan 30th- Elliptical 45 min, cool down 5 min (5 miles)
And to round out the month lets add in the 31st- 7 plus mile hike.
Goal: Read! 36 books of any kind I like. At least 1 book a month that is nonfiction about something I would like to learn about, be it about travel, crafting, a person, or just to learn some of that stuff I probably should of learned in college.
I am still not doing GREAT or maybe even what some would say is GOOD on this one but I did almost finish a book! I have been reading "Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons" and it is great and I will share my thoughts with you later this week when I finally wrap it all up. Sadly though I have still yet to read anything educational or non-fiction but I do have a few things in mind.
Goal: To not be so lazy when it comes to my appearance.
This one I have still been working on but sadly I didn't always think to stop and snap a photo everyday the past two weeks.
|Jan 18th shopping with mom then work. Jan 20th Beauty and The Beast double date with Mom, Dad, and Ryan. Jan 21st lazy night at home. Jan 22nd Church.|
|Jan 23rd Interview at a Staffing Agency. Jan 24th cooking date with Ryan. Jan 26th dinner with an old friend who was in town for a few days. Jan 27th we can now wear pink to work for Valentine's Day!|
|Jan 28th Camp Fire with the family. Jan 29th Work.|
Later this week I hope to dump a few photos from my phone for a "January In Photos" or well the few photos I took this month. This goal along with taking my vitamins, play more board games, and others still need a lot of work! Anyways I like to look at the good and the bad and see what I can do differently so it's a new start to the month and a new chance to work on things.
Are you keeping up with your New Year's goals/resolutions?
