As I said in my last post, I’m trying to be a little more goal-oriented. As I adjust to my new life as a mom to two boys, I need things to a) remind me to take care of myself, and b) keep me on the path to good health. With that in mind, I set some goals for September.
1. No Soda: I’ve certainly cut down the amount of soda that I drink, but I want to eliminate it completely.
2. No Fast Food: This is a challenge for me on work days. I tend to not eat all day (because I’m in the classroom), and I end up STARVING by the end of the day. So, I grab fast food on the way home. School starts next week, so I really need to stay focused and plan ahead.
3. Eat Vegetarian 3 times per week. Before I got pregnant, Hubs and I were seriously considering going Vegetarian, and eventually Vegan. I feel so much better when I eat that way, so I need to make that a priority again.
4. Read 1 book. During the semester, the only things I read are student essays. I need to make sure that I fit in some pleasure reading.
If I can hit these goals 85% of the time or so, I’ll be happy. I’m not going to beat myself up anymore over failed goals, or a cookie, or anything like that.
Anyone have any great goals for the month?
