Can you believe that it’s July already? We’re already in the second half of 2012 – crazy!

Goals July 7 2012


My goals for last month were to go to bed earlier and spend more time outside. As for going to bed earlier I think I did a pretty good job. While I wasn’t always able to go to sleep right away, I definitely made the effort to set up the situation for myself to fall asleep early. It’s amazing how fast 5:30 comes when my alarm goes off in the morning.

I’ve definitely been spending more time outside this month. A couple weeks ago I spent an afternoon in Bowmont with a friend. We walked for two and a half hours. It was so relaxing and great to be able to spend time talking with her. We need to do that more often, it was so much fun. It’s not just walks in Bowmont either that I’ve been doing. It’s eating lunch outside at work to soak up the sun or reading in the backyard.

Here’s what I want to do this month:

Take it easy. My feet have really been suffering lately. I haven’t been doing the stretches consistently that my physio guy wanted me to keep doing. The last week or two has been really bad. Because of that my one foot has been hurting. Add to that a blister on the bottom of my other foot, and being active isn’t much fun at the moment. I need to get back on track with my stretches and make the decision every day to not do too much and let my feet heal. I think it’ll be hard, but it definitely needs to happen.

Eat better. My eating hasn’t been great lately. I’ve been eating too much stuff that I know I shouldn’t be eating, and not enough of the good stuff. To be honest, sometimes it just comes down to laziness. I’m not willing to put in the effort when it comes to making a healthy lunch to take to work or cook something when I get home for dinner. I have lots of excuses, but in the end I know I just need to suck it up and do it.

Now that you know what I’m working on, what are you trying to do?

    Here in Atlanta, our goals usually have to be outside LESS in the summer. We’ve been over 100 a good bit. It’s yucky!
