Part of an occasional series of posts on setting easy monthly goals.
This month, I have two goals:
1. Continue on my journey to be as healthy as I can be. I’d like to lose a little more weight this month — 2-6 pounds would be healthy. To that end, I’ll keep using SparkPeople to journal my food intake, as well as making wise food choices and exercising 5-6 days a week. I actually lost a little weight while on vacation, despite sampling a large variety of Aussie and Kiwi chocolates, plus I’ve lost more since I got home, so I’m feeling good about how things are going.
2. Try to stay calm and centered. This sounds a bit odd so I’ll explain. Autumn is, for those of us here in Jenworld, the busiest time of the year. The three non-Jens all have birthdays in the next three weeks. Soccer and fencing start. I have two races. Lots of other things are going on.
Most important of all, we feel certain that we’ll be going to the funeral of a close relative, possibly within the next month, which is going to be one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. So I’m trying to keep my stress levels down and to find peace with this. I’ve organized my life and Jenworld so that things are in order, should I need to be away from home, and I’m coming to terms with this relative’s passing, but maintaining that calm is an ongoing process.
But enough about me. Who among you had goals in August and how did you do? And who has goals for September.
