This Week I Will 37

A weekly post of healthy-intention goals for the sake of accountability; [inspired long ago by Jess and her #sayitdoit style]

A review of last week’s goals:

Last week I set one goal: Get prepped for my March 2017 goals and start STRONG.
It may only be the fifth of March, but I’ve already begun to feel like this month has knocked February out of the water in terms of motivation and focus.

MARCH GOALS: [and last week’s progress report.]

-Walk home as often as possible. [added 3 tallies to the board this week.]
-Build and begin a running plan. [researched races and wrote out current distance PRs]
-Complete Yoga with Adriene’s Yoga Camp 30 Day Home Practice and Tone and Tighten’s Butts & Guts challenge. [100% on track for Yoga Camp; B&G accountability challenge starts 3/9]

-Get back on hydration track.
#make1healthydecision in terms of snacks and meal planning. [B+ overall.]

-Get organized for pre-inventory prep. [this could use some attention.]
-Have an awesome work trip to New Orleans. [spent time reading content from HLB members about NOLA vacation favorites to prepare!]
-Spend time transcribing #THSTheJesusYears journals each week. [two short sessions and a twitter update of progress this weekend.]
-Pitch strong pitches. [I’ve sent a couple of emails and have spent A LOT of time on the creative planning/building side of the process.]

-Write in the morning. [so far I’m 5 for 5 on morning pages entries this month.]
-Read daily. [A+; I finished one book and began another on Friday.]


This Week I Will

Continue my daily habits.  Everyday I try to complete a healthy intention to do list which starts with setting my healthy intentions aloud to my accountability partners via video.  Other daily goals include tracking my hydration, getting to the mat for Yoga Camp, making time to write and to read. 

Finish my current book and read three articles from Pocket. It’s not that I’m not interested in my current read, but it hasn’t really picked up speed yet.  I am choosing to make it a priority to finish reading it this week.

I’ve done an amazing job at saving articles to pocket this year, but haven’t read that many yet. Small progress is better than no progress, so I am committing to reading 3 articles before the week is over, too.

Walk home three times. This could get tricky if the weather decides not to cooperate, but as of right this moment it looks like I can DEFINITELY get two days of walking home in the books, and if precipitation is goes in my favor, a third shouldn’t been too hard to manage. [You may remember that I’m on a mission to see how quickly I get to 100 tally marks for days I walked home from the office. As of today, I’ve got 7.] 

I love walking home from the office for several reasons.  It gives me time to decompress between work and home.  It gets my heart rate up and energizes me when I could otherwise be hitting a late afternoon slump.  It stretches my legs and gets me to my step goal more easily.  It gives me time to be reminded I am solar powered and that even on overcast days vitamin D and outdoor air can do wonders for my body and mind and mood.  It allows me 25 minutes to listen to podcasts, laughing to myself every trip or answering, sometimes out loud, when trivia games are the show of choice. It opens me up to my neighborhood and my community and helps me become more familiar with the world around me.

Log at least 1 hour of #THSTheJesusYears transcription time. It doesn’t have to be all at once, but in order to make progress on this goal I need to make time for that progress.  And that starts continues this week.

What healthy intentions are you setting for the week?  Tell me about them on twitter and show me the proof on Instagram by using the #Make1HealthyDecision hashtag!
