2011 Goal Recap + 2012 Goals

2 Jan

Happy New Year!

Ahhh! Life is finally back to normal. As much as I love the Holidays, they can be very annoying for someone who gets over stressed like me! 🙂 I am extremely happy to be back to a little extra free time because I this year classes start on Jan. 16th.

Hello extended winter break 🙂

2011 Goals

Drink more greens

I don’t think you can ever drink enough greens, but I feel like I did ok in this department. After buying my Vitamix last spring, all I did was drink green smoothies for breakfast, it was awesome! Not having chunks of spinach in my green smoothies made them so much more enjoyable.

Try to not eat as much processed food

For me, this always could use some work. I’ve been getting better but sometimes I fall back onto processed foods due to convenance.

Go to church regularly

Well, I was doing a great job keeping this goal but then the Farmer’s Market happened and after that, I had to work every Sunday morning. Personally I know that I do what I can.

Keep exercising regularly

I’m pretty sure that this is a goal every year. In 2011, I fell like I diffidently accomplished this farther than I ever have. Go me!

Put education first

This still needs some work….

2012 Goals

Exercise regularly

Hopefully 2012 will bring on some intense challenges!

Stay healthy

Mentally, physically, emotionally.

Cook more meals

Enough said!

Make the switch to ALL natural body care products

Mainly to help my skin stop breaking out! More of this another time.

Practice on my eating

Whaaa? Yup, I am going to practice on eating slower, chewing more, and not eating as much of certain foods that my belly doesn’t like.

What are some of your goals for 2012?

August Goals / July Recap

1 Aug

Hi friends!

How is everyone? I am still enjoying my time on vacation so here is another pre-scheduled post! Woo!

Wow, AUGUST already? Imagine that. I love August here in Michigan. This marks the start of my favorite season it’s called “AUG.-OCT., the most beautiful time in Michigan” I think that’s a good name.

July Goal Recap:

  • At least 1 hour of exercise 5 days a week. This can include nature walks, runs, gym time, biking, and Zumba. I NEED this hour everyday to lower my stress. I did the best I could.
  • Use up my Zumba punch card at the dance studio. I bought a 10-class punch card in January and have only gone once. Mainly because the classes are all at night. Expires in August! I only used it twice, whoops! I think I am going to try to use it after it expires on the fifth. I might even slide a 1 in before the 5 on “Aug. 5th” if you know what I mean..
  • Make time for family and friends. Check!
  • Attempted to be more organized. Like paying bills on time, keeping my room clean, keeping up on laundry, filing important papers. Ehhh, check?
  • Apply for Fall classes! Check!
  • Roller blade on the new bike path by my house (repeat daily, I ❤ roller blading). Fail.
  • Stay away from processed junk like oreo’s and nutter butter’s. Not worth the belly ache! Check!
  • Limit fried foods to maybe once every 2 weeks. Yes, this included my favorite roll (sweet potato roll) at the sushi joint. Check! I’ve been eating a lot more salads and actually enjoying them!

August Goals:

  • Reeelax.
  • Read my Biology book to get a head start!
  • Start studying early for fall semester.
  • Go to Canada
  • Celebrate my 20th Birthday on the 31st!

Did you make any goals for August!

 

July Goals

1 Jul

Wow, is this summer flying by or what?

I feel like July is one of those months that I forget about because it always goes by so quickly. I remember in grade school that once it was the 4th of July, summer was half way over (again with the negativity!) and it was officially time to do everything on the summer-to-do list. Now that I’m out of school for the summer I have no sense of time. Scott and I have been working on a lot of projects so I feel like I am at work 24/7 even though it’s fun work. Well, a lot more enjoyable than my real job away. I basically have been MIA from my gym for the last month and a half, which really needs to change because my stress level is raging. I have been eating a lot better for the most part but my sweet snackage has gotten pretty ridic. With all of this said, how about making time for July goals?

July Goals:

  • At least 1 hour of exercise 5 days a week. This can include nature walks, runs, gym time, biking, and Zumba. I NEED this hour everyday to lower my stress.
  • Use up my Zumba punch card at the dance studio. I bought a 10-class punch card in January and have only gone once. Mainly because the classes are all at night. Expires in August!
  • Make time for family and friends.
  • Attempted to be more organized. Like paying bills on time, keeping my room clean, keeping up on laundry, filing important papers.
  • Apply for Fall classes!
  • Roller blade on the new bike path by my house (repeat daily, I ❤ roller blading).
  • Stay away from processed junk like oreo’s and nutter butter’s. Not worth the belly ache!
  • Limit fried foods to maybe once every 2 weeks. Yes, this included my favorite roll (sweet potato roll) at the sushi joint.

I think this list is do-able, honestly. This felt really good to write these goals down so I do not forget them!

What are some of your July goals?

& To all of the USA readers…

Have a great Independance Day weekend!

May Goals

2 May

Hii bloggins! ♥

Did you have a good first day of May?

I know I did. You know why? Cause mine was filled with lots of food, duh!

Quinoa with sun-dried tomatoes and basil, black bean burgers, Peanut Butter Cookies

Because Megan reminded me!

  1. Save MONEY. On food, gas, and other mindless spendings. Even though I’m a major tight-wad, my savings are getting extremely low. My savings are basically for when I decide to transfer to a better college I would have to stress about mu-lah so much. Ya digg?
  2. Don’t over-eat on the sweets, nuff said.
  3. Work on them ABS 3 times a week! I love working out my abs, I know, I’m weird. Something about sore abs makes me feel like a million bucks.
  4. Run outside for 3 miles.
  5. Put school first. This 8 week semester just might kick my butt.

 What are your goals for the month/summer?

Teaching Zumba this morning went pretty well. I messed up a few times but, we just laughed about it. I couldn’t practice my routine at home because my CD wouldn’t play in my CD player! They said I did really good though. I’m so lucky to have such a supportive class! Also, I’m realizing how hard it is to yell out directions and shake my butt at the same time! I don’t like it when Zumba instructors don’t yell out what’s coming next, it’s quite frustrating!

Oh, and before I go, here’s a sneak peek at tomorrow’s post:

I spy a GIVEAWAY
