5 Goals for September

Thursday, September 01, 2011

1) Increase my stamina in the gym.

I’m currently doing ten minutes on the cross trainer, fifteen minutes on the bike, five minutes on the arm bike, twenty minutes on the treadmill and fifteen minutes on the stepper (65 minutes total). I want to increase this to fifteen/twenty minutes on the cross trainer, twenty minutes on the bike, ten minutes on the arm bike, twenty minutes on the treadmill and twenty minutes on the stepper (85/90 minutes). I know this is achievable.

2) Keep my house tidy.

This may sound silly, but my house has been a right mess lately and it makes my depression worse. I hate coming home to a messy house. I live on my own, so it shouldn’t be that hard to keep it tidy! I want to be able to have people come round, and not be embarrassed about inviting them in.

3) Do something sociable every week.

I need to stop sitting in so much, and start going out more. This doesn’t have to involve nights out and drinking, I can go the cinema, I can go sit in a friends house, I can meet a friend to walk our dogs together, I can go play miniature golf, the list is endless!

4) Sort through all my clothes (including the ones in my mums house) and get rid of those that don’t fit me/I won’t wear.

I need to be ruthless with this. There is no point keeping clothes that I ‘might’ wear or that I ‘might’ fit into again. I need to clear out my wardrobes, because then I can buy myself new clothes and actually have somewhere to put them!

5) Try a new recipe every week.

I’m getting stuck in a food rut, I live alone so there’s nothing stopping me trying anything I want to. This can be either a main course or a dessert. This can be just for myself or it can be something to share with my family or friends.

    I did the same thing with the clothes - and it not only free up a lot of cupboard / dresser space, but I felt like it cleared a lot of 'cobwebs' out of my life as well. And if you give them to a charity shop, someone somewhere will benefit!

    I really like your goals! After reading your other blogs I have no doubt that you will be able to acheive these too! I am struggling with getting rid of my "skinny" clothes as well. I am going to try and sell them to a consignment shop and put that money aside to buy new clothes for myself...because honestly seeing those clothes in my closet everyday is a bit depressing, and I know buying new things(even if there in a size bigger than I would like) will help me feel just a little bit better about myself! Good luck and I can't wait to hear about your progress!!

    Hey hey, great goals! I've not been in Liverpool much this week so have been pretty rubbish at going to the gym, but there tomorrow, so going to go in the morning, and maybe Saturday morning if I wake up at a reasonable time. But we definitely need to sort out a gym date, or even just catching up some time! You got a crazy weekend planned?
