Goals progress and setbacks

Monday, June 04, 2012

I woke up this morning with the cold my daughter had last week. Ugh! Right now it's mostly a very sore throat and swollen glands. I even had dreams about having a cold and blogging about it on SP. So I thought I'd better do it and make my dreams come true, haha. It's lame because today was going to be my Long Run day.

Overall, I'm so happy I made goals this month because it really gives me something concrete to work toward and so far I've been doing OK. I have missed a few, but I learn from my mistakes and it shows me what I need to work on.

Walk/run with the dog every day: emoticon
I have a very happy dog right now.

8 glasses of water every day: emoticon

No hangovers at work: emoticon
Not a lot of opportunity yet to screw this one up.

Lights out by 11:30 on work nights: emoticon
There has only been 1 work night (last night) and I had lights out by 11:45. I always have trouble going to bed at a decent time on Sunday nights because I sleep in a lot on Sunday morning. If I had not made this goal, I probably would have stayed up until at least midnight.

Get to work by 8:30 AM: emoticon
6/1 I was late by 30 mins.
6/4 This morning because of my cold, after I dropped off my DD at school, I fell asleep until 11 AM! Maybe today doesn't really count, though, since I decided to stay home from work.

Run 3 times a week (2 short, 1 long): emoticon
6/1 - no run
6/2 - 2 mile trail run
6/3 - 30 min hike with several sprints
6/4 - caught a cold :(

Do 1 race this month: emoticon
I did some searches last night, and am thinking of doing the Freedom 5K in Vancouver, WA on 6/16.

Do 1 exercise class a week: emoticon
I have a plan to go to a kickboxing class with my friend KLOKTEFF on Wednesday. Even if she can't make it, I will still do it.

Write up a budget and file divorce papers this month: emoticon
I haven't even thought about it yet!

Fast food 1x per week: emoticon
I had Burger King on Saturday so I'm not allowed to have any more fast food this week.

Track food 5x per week: emoticon
I am already off my goal for the week.
6/1: I tracked most of the day until dinner when I ate at the Mongolian Grill and then drank a bunch of beer, so I don't know my total calorie consumption.
6/2: No tracking
6/3: I tracked my first meal of the day and then all hell broke loose with a Cincy chili feast and red velvet cake.
6/4: I will track all food today and stay in my calorie range!

Now I'm off to make a healthy breakfast and contemplate cleaning the house, which is a total disaster from this weekend. I finished playing the new Silent Hill Downpour game yesterday (while the rest of my family were also playing video games on other systems - we are a total gaming geek family). Compared to the other Silent Hill games, it was just so-so. I didn't like the ending I got (there are 6 different endings depending on how you play the game).

I also watched the first part of the HBO series Weight of the Nation everyone's been talking about. I am looking forward to watching the other parts. You can watch it for free on HBO's website: theweightofthenation.hbo

Hope everyone had a good weekend! Let's have an active week!!
Cheers -
