First Quarter Check In
I wanted to do a check in on my the goals I had set for the year, and let you guys know where I am. I will be honest, a couple of them have been a struggle for me, but its still early enough in the year, that I can get my act together and still follow through.
Listening To My Body
This was one of my first goals for the year. I wanted to be better about consistently working out and fueling my body with what it actually needs. I have doing pretty well with the food, enjoying leaner meats and fish more, and cutting back on my caffeine intake. But as for working out, I am still slacking and have been having a hard time finding the motivation to go to the gym. I still have faith that I will get my act together, but I really need to find a new workout program that inspires me.
Being More Confident
My goal was to stop comparing myself to others, and to feel more confident in my own skin. I have been doing well with this goal. I started my own blog, and while sometimes I still see other people and wish I could do that, I have been doing it so much less.
Not Forcing Friendships
I have been trying to not push people to like me. If someone wants to be your friend, and support you, they will make it known. I have been learning to see the truth about people, and also accept that you aren’t made to be friends with everyone. And that is ok. I have been working to find my tribe of close knit friends, who really help me and lift me when I am low, and celebrate me when I succeed.
Seeing My Family More Often
I actually just got back about a month ago from a large vacation with most of my family. Seeing them just lifts my spirit and makes me feel more calm. I am in the process of planning more trips with them, and I hope to be able to stay closer with them.
Checking in on my goals if very important because sometimes I let life get the best of me, and I forget about what I actually wanted to accomplish this year. It made me realize that a couple of these goals have been on the back burner to other things that are less important, and more distracting. I hope by the half year mark I will have been more able to keep up with these goals.
Did you set any goals or resolutions for the New Year? If so, what are they and have you kept up with them?
