My best friend's birthday. Yesterday, that is.
Halfway through 2015.
As I read through my "feed" of bloggers, I'm seeing a trend - none of us expected the first half of this year to go so quick. It's really quite ridiculous. I was just complaining about shoveling the snow, and crawling into bed praying that no more would fall overnight, and BAM now it's June.
It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:
In so many ways, it's true. I have a health and wellness goal and have a rough goal weight/number in mind, and this fits in perfectly. Yes, it'll take time to reach my goal, BUT, the time is passing regardless of whether I put in the work or not. I'm trying not to get sucked back into the world of headless fitness models on Pinterest, trying to fit impossible standards into my everyday normal life, and remembering that the goal is to feel better about myself and my skin, not to hit some magical number.
So my goals for this month and hopefully the rest of the year (because let's face it - it'll be Thanksgiving sooner than we all think!) are as follows:
-Stay on top of tracking steps/active minutes (thank you FitBit)
-Actually legitimately start tracking calories/macros/realfood (MFP or the like)
-Find a gym class each day that I can't wait to do (I've already got Monday-Tuesday on lock)
-SLEEP enough every night
-DRINK enough (water)
-DRINK less (booze)
-Go out to eat less / Make home cooked dinners more special (aka use fancy dishes, wear pants, etc.)
-Learn how to fish
-Subsequently, get over fear of touching fish
-Keep my eyes on my own life
-Perhaps start writing in this again because I suck right now.
Stay fly(yyyyyyyyyyy...) everyone.
