I thought it would be interesting to post about how I am keeping up with my goals. Even though I only recently shared my list. I have been working on them for a couple of months now. Here is how I am doing so far...
I am doing a really good job at drinking more water and usually get at least 64 oz per day. For the most part, I have pretty much cut dairy. I slipped up a little a couple of weeks ago. I have been doing well with the foods that I put in my body and I have been cooking at home more, which means I eat out less. I am starting to really notice how foods make me feel and what they do to my skin. I definitely need to work on that still though.
I followed a workout split for about a month and that was nice to see myself get stronger and work on perfecting my form in those exercises. I am ready to start changing up my workouts though. I do not think a routine like that is the way I want to work out all of the time. I really want to get my squat form down by the end of the year. I think my arms are even starting to actually have a little bit of shape. I am working out pretty consistently and probably hit at least four times a week.
I need to work on being more conscious about going outside. The weather is starting to warm up, so hopefully that makes it easier to want to do that. Right now, I am tracking my sleep and trying to find out the amount of sleep my body does best on. I am thinking it is around 7 hours? I do not think I do well when I sleep for an excessive amount of time. I am reading Ayurveda right now, I have a book waiting for me in by bookshelf, and two more in my Amazon shopping cart. I think that will be an easy goal to achieve. I also think I complain less. I have really been focusing on positivity lately. My boss has been super negative lately, and it is really starting to wear on me, but it also makes me realize even more the kind of happy, positive person I want to be. I have hung out with a couple of new people recently, and I even think I am doing a good job at saving my money! The extra money in my bank account though has been giving me the urge to shop, and the fact that Gymshark is releasing some super cute clothes soon definitely does not help. I am also taking typing classes and have already noticed a big improvement. I have even been able to type a lot of this without having to look at my hands. My fingers just know where to go. I think this, counts as journaling as well, so there’s that. I think I want to try and start posting on my blog again. Maybe I will start putting this type of thing on there ( and look at me now).
I am no longer a Barrett student, and I am not as concerned with making sure my grades are perfect. I have a much more laid-back approach to school right now. My client search has been put on hold because I have realized I need to find a new job. My current one is causing me to much stress and honestly, just draining me!
Overall, I would say I am crushing my goals for the new year. It has only been two months though, so we’ll see how things are when I check back in another couple of months.
