April Goals & Reflections

Wednesday, April 01, 2020

April 1st. The days are longer, but not a whole lot warmer here in Northern Nevada. It's been cloudy here almost every day for the last week and a half. Right now, it's snowing. Not enough to stick, but enough to be frustrating.

I just want to go outside. I want to work in the yard and I want to go on long walks. I want sunshine!

March was a struggle for me, as I'm sure it's been for most of the world.

I have never been good at working out at home. Which is why I've always paid for a gym membership. If I can work out somewhere else, I will get it done. If I have to work out at home, I procrastinate. I come up with excuses. There's cooking and cleaning and now school for the kids. Or the husband is home and parked in front of the TV all day long. There is no room in the bedroom, or in the back living room (our music room) and honestly, who wants to work out in the bathroom?

So, with the gyms closed and the weather horrible, I've been struggling to work out.

Last week, I was able to take the kids out on one walk. It was cold and it was slow and it wasn't a very satisfying workout, if I'm honest with myself.

I took some time for a pity party. Some time to quietly feel sorry for myself. I've eaten crap the last few days (tracked it all and don't feel bad about it). I stopped eating breakfast, which was my biggest habit to break. I stopped drinking as much water.

But, it's April 1st.

It's time to jump off the pity train and get back to this.

This morning I woke up and meditated (it wasn't that great) and I did yoga (yes, in the bathroom, it also sucked).

I've had this app on my phone for almost half a year now called FitOn. Yesterday, I restarted my program to a prenatal thing for the next 8 weeks. The goal is to work out (on the app or off) three to four times a week. This morning, I chose the wrong Yoga workout, but I did it.

I realize, I haven't done yoga seriously for the last five or six months now. My entire body is tight and uncooperative.

I'm not going to let that stop me.

My goals for this month include daily yoga and meditation. No. Matter. What.

So, while March may not have been the month it was supposed to be, April will be much better.

My Goals For April:
1. Daily morning meditation and yoga. Daily. No. Matter. What
2. 120 oz of water each day, minimum. That's only 3 bottles. 15 cups. No excuses.
3. A long walk (maybe in the morning?) a day, as much as possible, weather permitting.
4. A strength training video or routine at least 3 days a week.
5. Breakfast and snacks every single day. Get back to better nutrition. You deserve it!
6. Read 30-60 minutes each night. Crush that TBR list!
7. Write 2,000 words per day. No excuses! This is your dream, get it!
