Priorities

desk_calendarDecide what you want, decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work.

Ok so it’s a 2 quote kinda day Smile

I’m not a planner I'm a spontaneous do’er. Those who know me well know that I pretty much suck at long term plans but I'm up for about anything spur of the moment. I will have all these grand things I want to do but instead of taking the time to put plans into place to get me to these goals ill just kinda fly by the seat of my pants and hope it all works out. Sometimes it does, sometimes it does not. Lately even though im not a big Dr. Phil person I keep hearing his voice when he says “How’s that workin for ya?” To which honestly most of the time I would have to answer that it’s not. Change is hard, we all fight change.

Last semester at school for me was a big wake up call. I am clearly used to classes at a community college not university classes. If you have never been to a university you might think whats the difference they are both college classes, well there is a HUGE difference. It is kinda like comparing high school classes to community college classes. The CC classes they still hold your hand a little, let you slide on some things ect. You get none of this at university, now some of this may be where im taking some upper level classes that are in my major but still you better show up ready to play or your out of the game. How does all this fit into my healthiness journey you ask? Well without planning school out I run out of time and leave myself no time to work on me. This makes me feel scattered and gets  me no where…in school and in my personal life.

What am I going to do about it? Well its time to turn into one of those people who makes list, keeps a calendar…and actually uses them! I am going to try scheduling my time, not just classes but almost everything. Classes, workout times, homework times ect…in addition to my usual things like Doctor appointments or whatever. I have my handy dandy little calendar out  and im going to block out time for all my priorities. I also will be putting it all on my virtual calendar because lets face it I need things in several places so that I cant loose them, as well as alarms to remind me!

Wow, I really thought this was going to be a short and sweet post, man am I long winded sometimes! haha

Ok now for a bit of an update if you have stuck around this long….

Workouts have not been happening. All last week we were snowed in and I have not reached the lets do a workout at home stage, I still need to go somewhere. My water challenge with Lindsey is still going on for another couple weeks and lets just say I do not have a perfect score on my daily totals.  If it wasn’t for the new water bottle I found on clearance at Kohl's a couple weeks ago that holds exactly 64oz there wouldn’t be much tracking going on most days. Yes of course I want to win but really this is about making this a habit in my life.  I’m still not keeping soda’s in the house but will get one if I am out and about. No actual weigh in today because well, I sat down drinking my coffee before I thought about doing a weigh in…I can tell the last time I weighed a couple days ago I was still right where I have been. No surprise there, you don’t get results when you don’t do the work to get those results.

Goals for now
  • drink my water
  • get to the gym 4 days this week
  • plan out my time and stick to my plan as much as possible

Peace Love and Happy Blogging
