Goals for January

Posted by: sgregg In: Monthly Goals

Ok.  It’s time to set some new goals.  I don’t want to go overboard since I’ll be getting back into the swing of things.  I don’t want to start an exercise routine right now since my life is so hectic when school is in session.  I think I want to focus on food and drink.  I could focus on sleep, but I think I’ve been doing much better with that.  I usually make myself go to bed around 9:30 during school days because I’m in such a better mood when I have enough sleep.

Goal #1 - Drink at least 6 cups of water EVERY day.  This is totally do-able.  That’s 3 bottles.  I know I can do that.

Goal #2 - Write down EVERYTHING I eat.  This has always been a struggle for me for some reason.  I guess because around 4-5 I go in this snacking mode and want to eat a bite of everything I have in the house.  Anyway, starting Tuesday I’m going to start writing down everything I put in my mouth.  I might actually go out and buy a special notebook just for this.

Now, should I make a 3rd goal?  Hmm…let’s make it something simple.  Ooh!  I know!!

Goal #3 - Eat at least one kind of fruit daily.  This can be in all shapes or forms.  This will also include dried fruits if I don’t have fresh fruit in the house.  I’m saying this because I usually have raisins because my 1-year-old loves them right now.

Alright, I think this is a good start to a new year.  I think making monthly goals are so much better than making resolutions.  I’m not setting myself up for failure, but for success!
