August Goal Check In

Monday, August 04, 2014

My last blog post was about setting some goals/habits for the month of August. As today is August 4th, I thought I would do a little check in since Friday. Here are the goals/habits:

1) 1 hour of exercise, 6 times per week
2) Plan ahead for meals
3) Get outside
4) Floss
5) Gratitude
6) Make bed
7) Scrape tongue
8) no Qtipping ears!
9) Read
10) creative acts
11) Improve the world

I was at a wedding this weekend, so many of these were hard to do. I did dance for hours on Saturday at said wedding, so I'm counting that for my exercise! I wasn't able to plan ahead but did make it to the grocery store last night...will make all meals at home starting this evening. I've spent very little time outside, but I hope to take a walk/run this evening after a dentist appointment.

I'm SO BAD about flossing! I will be flossing today as I have to go to the dentist, but I will try REALLY REALLY REALLY hard to do this one. It's kind of a big deal.

I've made my bed every day and scraped my tongue every day except for Sunday (forgot scraper and didn't want to ask the nice Dutch lady at the B&B for one.) Not cleaning my ears with swabs is a real challenge, but so far, so good!

I have managed to read each day and even played guitar last night. Felt so good to sing and strum! And lastly, what have I done lately to improve the world? Well, I got caught up on some work for an environmental group I work with and composted all of my kitchen scraps. Hopefully I can find something else for today.

Although I'm in a good mood today, I'm feeling a tad bit weary about my life in general. I hope I'm not fixating on goals like these to avoid having to actually think about what's working/not working in my life and what I can do to make positive changes. Without going into great detail, this is not where I thought I would be at 30, but I don't know where I should be. I haven't quite made it to that part yet. Oh well, hope to figure it out sooner than later!

Have a great day everyone!
