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:
Keep the #GetYourFreggies Momentum. On a scale of 1-10, I’d say I hit a 6 here. I wasn’t fully invested in paying attention to when and what I was eating this week, and didn’t take a ton of a time to prepare easy to grab freggie servings last weekend. I did choose veggies a handful of times throughout the week, but I wasn’t loading them or even focusing on counting them much at all.
Do more yoga. This simple goal was met thanks to my recent favorite-for-fitness YouTube channel: Boho Beautiful. I love all the beginning yoga videos I’ve tried so far and I want to try more.
Walk with Friends. This didn’t happen once, but I didn’t let that stop me! My walking partners weren’t available at all this week, mostly because we left work between 6:30 and 8:00 each evening in preparation for our Physical Inventory which starts tomorrow. Instead of letting their unavailability discourage my fitness plans, I spent the time I would have spent walking each night doing some other sort of workout.
Fill in the Fitness Calendar. Boom! 100% complete here. I love that each day of the week I’m making a bit of fitness a priority [I’m aiming for at least 20 minutes a day!] and the filling in the little box is such a rewarding experience.
This Week I Will
Drink lots of water. Inventory is a weird time at the office, and I don’t spend much time at my desk. Without my normal routine, I often forget to hydrate so I want to make getting the H2O a priority. Plus – immediately following Inventory, Nick and I are boarding a plane to North Carolina to visit our families and drinking water is always an important goal to focus on when I travel.
Choose freggies. Ordering in and dining out with our visiting auditors are a part of the inventory week tradition – choosing fruits and vegetables whenever I can is a good way to add the good stuff to my meals. Same for when I’m on “vacation mode.” I will always choose to indulge to celebrate the occasion, but indulging with a side of veggies is a healthy decision I can get behind.
Take time to quiet my mind daily. Hi, it’s a crazy time at the office followed immediately by travel. Something I’ve definitely gotten used to [it seems I’m always traveling near inventory and big projects as of late!] but with that experience I’ve learned that I can feel a bit over-stressed. Taking time away for myself each day will be an important habit to keep for my mental wellness.
Fit in fitness! If I could do it last week, I can do it this week! Plus, traveling South-ward means a great possibility of terrific running weather!
