Right out of the gate, I want to celebrate! [cue music]
I did a stellar job meeting all my objectives this week!
Woohoo!!! It feels good to type that!!!!
This week, I meditated five minutes each day. I exercised eleven minutes each morning, and I ate my oatmeal six out of seven days this week.
I am thrilled to report that I can feel habits forming in my life and changes taking place in my body.
What changes have I seen?
More regular bathroom habits. Yay! TMI, I know, but this is an important goal for any women my age, so just hurry along and read the other, less graphic, results if this one makes you wince. 😉
Less stiffness during the day. Yay!
Much more muscle tone and definition in my legs and arms. Yay!
A greater sense of what I need to do spiritually to clean up some of the debris of the past and move forward with relationships that support my goals and benefit my family.
More serenity. Not a small thing, I assure you.
My Three Teeny, Tiny Goals for this week:
Here is where we take a detour, are you with me?
What I have decided to do for the remainder of November is keep my goals static.
That’s right: with the exception of one thing (the addition of one minute to my morning exercise routine), I will be working on the same goals through the month of November.
The holidays are coming soon, and I want to have my habits for eating and exercising firmly in place and serving me before the sugary stuff starts sneaking into the break room at work. I want to have my head about me as I shop for gifts for family members, and I want to have the stamina I need to get through the holiday blur. I want a clear head and a heart at peace, in order to honor the Savior’s birth with my faithful friends. I want to avoid a sugar coma during November and December. To this end, I will not be changing up my goals again until the first of the year, but I will be reporting on those goals each Thursday, so that I don’t lose momentum and I am able to keep that accountability factor that means so much to my success firmly in place.
I have toyed with the idea of starting a Three Goals Thursday Facebook page. If you’re interested, contact me at email@example.com. I’ll add you to the list, if and when I build the page. We can discuss how it would work when you email me.
My Three Teeny Tiny Goals for November are:
- I will eat oatmeal for breakfast every morning in November.
- I will exercise for 12 minutes each morning before doing anything else.
- I will meditate for 5 minutes each morning, seeking to have a better understanding of my needs and God’s power to fuel each day.
If you are the praying type, pray for me as I move through this month of busyness, please. If you are the praying type, let me know, and I’ll pray for you! 🙂
What goals do you have for yourself going into the holiday season? What habits would you like to change before the end of the year, so that you can get a running start on 2016?
