G is for Goals
Starting yesteray I'm ready to get my life back on track. I took exactly 1 month of from the gym/running. I also stopped eating overly healthy. I wasn't necessarily eating poorly I just wasn't as focused on it as I had been. I had originally set 4 goals for the year: pay off my credit cards, get a new job, run 300 miles, & visit 1 new state.
While I'm proud to say that I paid off my Target card & stopped using it, I'm not so proud to say that not only do I continue to use my credit card...I bought my WeFest tickets with my 3rd credit card which was supposed to be there to get miles but mostly as a "I'm paying my bills with this & then automatically paying it off with my checking account." Yeah homegirl doesn't have the $225 for the WeFest tickets hence why it went on the credit card.
The running? Yeah not so hot on that either. In the first 3 months I didn't even run 25 miles when it should've been 75 by the end of those 3 to keep on track.
I have had 2 job fair interviews & have been applying/emailing like crazy. I'm sure I won't know anything about that until June though since most districts don't really start interviewing until May/June.
I haven't visited a new state yet, which is fine because it's only April. I do know what the state will be though. I'm going to drive through Arkansas. I've never been there. I have managed to visit every single state surrounding it but never Arkansas. So on my drive home this summer instead of some epic Southern road trip, or the standard route I take home, I'm going to drive through Arkansas instead & make a pit stop in Branson.
(Ok so none of that was actually my original intent of this post...I was going to talk about my goals for this month/rest of the year...)
Starting yesterday I'm going to try to be active, whether it's the gym, going for a walk, or doing some sort of workout at home everyday. I'm also going to start those monthly workout challenges you see on Pinterest (you know the Fab Abs February & what not) cause I feel like my ass is going away...so are my boobs... so with summer coming I figure now is a good time to start. I'm also going to start having protien shakes for breakfast. I was doing this for awhile & then stopped & got into the bad habit of having a muffin or cinnamon roll for breakfast because it was easy. I found a protein shake recipe on Pinterest that I love. I'm also going to take a crack at my bible again. I'm not quite sure how I want to accomplish that one yet though. The last time I tried I just tried starting at the beginning & going from there...it didn't go so hot...so if any of y'all have any suggestions that'd be great...otherwise I'll figure something out. I also need to read more. I just finished Heaven is For Real & started Never Have I Ever.
I need more structure/purpose in my life.
