June Goals

As part of the monthly challenges in which I participate, we have to set goals for ourselves. Last month I was not super aggressive with my goals. I set a fitness goal and a home-oriented goal. I actually did pretty well. This month, I decided to amp it up a little. As I sat down on May 31st to write out my goals, I just had so many things I wanted to do that I figured, better commit them all to paper. (or Microsoft Word.)

So, here are my goals for the month. I’ll report back periodically on my progress. I’m already doing pretty well 1 week and 1 day into the month. At the end of the month, I set my non-food reward as a new pair of running shoes. My current shoes are getting old and have a little hole in the top where my toe hits them. I figure it’s a practical and fun reward. (My reward for May ended up being a haircut. I’m not so excited about how it turned out, but it was something I’d been putting off for a while.)

    1. My initial idea was spurred by thinking about when you ask everyone what they had for breakfast. One of the easiest parts of the challenge for me is the eating because it’s something I’d been working on for a while anyway (took me at least a year maybe longer and I still have my dalliances) – anyway, I thought about how the 2 times I’ve been the answers about breakfast aren’t always that great and wouldn’t it be nice to bring something wholesome and healthy to share with everyone?

      From there, I started thinking about how I could reach other participants but that’s more challenging since it’s essentially blind except for the people who come to boot camp, but I thought maybe sponsoring someone for a month who wants to try or sponsoring someone for a week or two who wants to try training. Or getting a few Amazon or iTunes gift cards and giving them to people so they can perk up their playlists because that’s always invigorates me when I’m feeling slumpish.

      That’s as far as I’ve gotten in brain.
