May Goals - Review
- go to the gym 12 times.
as of today it was 11. I can't even begin to describe how busy we were this month with the dentist and doctor's appointments, and school getting out, the fact that I was able to get in at all was a miracle. I am not counting this as a fail.
- do Jillian Michael's 30 day shred once a week.
WIN! I even managed to do it twice in one week, making 5 times total in the month. I love the changes I see in my body when I stick with it.
- lose 5 pounds.
FAIL. But I did lose 4. This also includes not gaining anything during my 10 day trip to Florida. I ate theme park food, greasy burgers, and drank WAY too much beer. 4 lbs is good.
- drink less soda.
WIN! Though I did drink way too much beer, and way too much red bull. As of tomorrow it's water, coffee, and tea.
- meditate for 5 minutes, three times a week.
WIN! I didn't keep track, but I think I did this more days than not, usually while I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep. Sleep comes easier when you're able to forgive yourself every night when you go to bed.
- spend more time outside.
WIN! In the 10 days I was in Florida, only the hours I was sleeping were spent inside. Before that, Aiden and I made it a point to go over to the school and walk on the track. Weather in Nebraska is FINALLY acting like summer.
- attempt not to cling so tightly to people who I am either
A. just getting to know
B. have been in my life for such a long time that they're not going ANYWHERE no matter how hard I push them.
Vacation did wonders for me. I was able to let a lot of things, and issues with people, go.
- start and finish one book.
WIN! I finished Chelsea Handler's "Are you there Vodka? It's me, Chelsea." I also started and am three chapters away from finishing the YA book by Ally Condie "Matched" AND I started "The Hunger Games" on my ipod. I would like to get a hard copy of that.
- deep clean and de-clutter the kitchen.
I did, just not as much as I wanted. It's currently back in a state of disarray, and I really want/need to change that.
- try REALLY hard not to kill the beautiful flowers Aiden picked out and planted for me for my birthday.
The daffodils are iffy. The other flowers seem to be doing well, though. They desperately need the sun though, too much rain and not enough light!
