January SMART Goals

Friday, January 03, 2020

OK, so I'm working on my SMART goals for the BLC, and here is what I've come up with for January. It looks like a lot, but each goal is very small. At the end of January, I will look back over these goals and see how I did and see what needs tweaking. I've made a page in my notebook to track my goals along the way to see how they are progressing.

Food - My overall food goal is to build healthy, consistent, nurturing eating habits.
1. I will pack a lunch every day.
2. On days I don't go straight home, I'll pack a lunch big enough for a small dinner.
3. I will not worry about the school lunch menu. If I'm able to eat something, I'll be happy and save my packed food for the next day.
4. I will keep my fridge and freezer stocked with nutritious food that I enjoy.
5. When I eat off plan, I will reflect about why that was and use it as a learning opportunity.

Fitness - My overall fitness goal for January is to work on flexibility, strength, and recovery from neck pain
1. I will go to the gym 2x/week.
2. I will finish my workouts with a proper stretching session
3. If my shoulder feels better, I'll go bouldering 1x/week
4. I'll get 10K steps daily
5. I'll get back to stretching when I first wake up.

Fun - I HAVE to reduce stress. There is a lot happening between now and the end of March, and I need to be able to handle it all with grace
1. I will reach for a book when I want to relax instead of automatically watching something.
2. I will try to discover some new music to listen to.
3. I will be intentional about contacting people for coffee or chats.
4. I will give myself a spa night at least once a week (skin care, bath, go to bed early)
5. I will build a consistent habit of reading my Bible every day.

    That may be 15 items, but they are all doable!

    If you are looking for music that will clear out all the stress in your head... Keith Jarrett's Koln Concert does that for me. There is even a wikipedia about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
    The_K%C3%B6ln_Concert .

    The concert itself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
