This Week I Will 45

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

For the month-of-April I kept it simple with my mission to #make1healthydecision at a time. At the start of each week, instead of recapping my intention successes and setting a new list of goals for the week ahead, I simply shared a list of some of the healthy decisions I made the week prior.

It was a nice change to scale back and look at the big picture during a month when my 9-to-5 job takes on an especially high priority for me day to day.  Shifting my focus from mega-detailed tasks to complete and milestones to reach to a broader [and honestly easier] point of view was such a refreshing way to face days that may otherwise seem like a struggle. [Hello long office hours and thoughts like, “oh…I’m sore…this is what aging feels like.”]

But now that May is on the horizon, I’m ready to jump back in line with setting some ‘say it, do it’ intentions on a week to week basis to help me meet my month of May goals.

Speaking of, these are my May goals:

  • Read.
  • Practice yoga every day.
  • Make progress on #THSTheJesusYears transcription.
  • Cut back on sugary, sweet treats.
  • Do a simple strength training workout 3X a week.

I’m focusing in on these goals as I set my healthy intentions for this week.

This Week I Will

Daily lunch break away from my desk with a book. Lunch breaks and time for reading were both few and far between in April, and I’m eager to get back to both healthy habits in May.

Living room yoga sessions. No pressure on length or specific workouts to conquer, this week I want to prioritize time on my mat daily.  Maybe I’ll choose a Yoga with Adriene practice or I might play music and guide my own flow to find what feels good.

Limit sweets. Ideally I’m going for a “one sweet treat a day” attitude, but if I stepped it to 2 sweets a day it would be progress. My sweet tooth has been in full force the past several weeks and it’s time to reel it back.

Complete these strength training workouts. Focus on Arms & Abs. Total Body Bar Workout. and Garage Total Body Circuit.
