For this week’s Wellness Wednesday I selected to share my healthy living goals. Goals come in all sizes and degree of difficulty. No goal is to small if it moves you toward the bigger picture. With that in mind, I’ve decided on two new goals for 2015.
First, lets start with my blonde moment which relates directly to my first goal. I’ve made the goal previously to workout consistently. I used to do that and I also used to work 8-4, which was a perfect work schedule for me. But the evil day job (EDJ for short) switched my hours to 9-5 and my consistency went down the tubes (okay, fine, I can’t blame the EDJ entirely for that but it’s worth a shot, right?). My goal was to workout every other day but on Tuesdays and Wednesdays it is impossible for me to workout at night (and no, I don’t do morning workouts). I struggled, I was frustrated, I was at a loss of what to do because I wasn’t meeting my goal.
Fast-forward to last night when I face-palmed my forehead and said, “duh”. My “week” doesn’t have to begin on Monday and I don’t need to workout every other day if I switch up the workouts (cardio, toning, stretch, repeat). Ugh, what a blonde moment.
My workout schedule will be this – Thursday to Monday, alternating workouts on those days. Tuesdays and Wednesdays will be my rest days. Don’t even ask how long it’s taken me to figure this out. 🙂
Goal #2 is to drink more water on the weekends. I do drink water during the day at the EDJ but on the weekends? Not so much and I do feel the effects of being dehydrated by Sunday night. So water will be my first choice of beverage come Saturday and Sunday.
There you have it, my two goals for this year. They’re easily attainable but pack a punch if I succeed each week.
I’d love to know what your healthy goal(s) are for 2015. And be sure to check out the Wellness Wednesday link-up.
