This post is inspired by Danielle over at Sometimes Sweet. I love reading her blog and her positive outlook! I felt a sense of renewal and excitement to walk into my job this Monday morning, after the National Art Education Association Conference I was at in Seattle. I also really missed my students, so today definitely feels like a fresh start!
Danielle wrote five goals to better herself for the week, and so I will write out my goals as well, using her categories.
Nutrition: This week I am logging everything that I eat, including those pesky snacks that get in the way. (I think that maybe if I know I have to write it down, that in itself may help me make good choices!). I am also going to make a big soup that I will partly freeze and partly put in containers to bring to work for lunch this week. I will not buy any food out this week, or lunches out this week, and will wait until the weekend if I want to get food out (saving my money and all together avoiding a chance of food poisoning again!)
Exercise: I am going to strap on my rollerskates and get outside and skate! I miss playing Roller Derby so much, and I think it will be nice to work those muscles again even though I don't have time to commit to a league right now.
Relationships: Honesty is the very best policy. I am going to be honest with myself and others no matter what. This week I will continue to foster positive relationships and be sure to call my family, friends, and set up some friend dates! I am also planning a little surprise for my special someone.
Creativity: I will be working on finishing a painting that was commissioned, and I will make at least one skirt and a dress this week! I can't wait to break my sewing machine out after weeks of dormancy!
Me-time: I am actually really good at this. Having Malomar helps because my walks in the park with him are definitely a time to myself and thoughts! In addition to this, I am going to set aside one night where I don't bring my work computer home and I leave work at work! This will take some work and I may have a panic attack, but I am going to try!
And, like I was inspired to...if you also jot down 5 "better yourself" goals for the week, post the link below so we can all share!
