I love accomplishing things (checking of items on a list is my favorite!). I make lists for everything. I love the feeling you get when you finish a task or you reach a goal. My biggest issue is that I get too excited and I try to take on too much.
The new year always brings around feelings of excitement and anxiety because of this contradiction. I absolutely hate failure, but cherish success. Each time I would miss some time working on a goal, I would completely restart the next week. The result is too many stops and starts to let me accomplish anything.
This year is different! I have simple goals that I already want to accomplish, not ones that I want to want. I am determined to make it work!
- Exercise at least 5 days a week (connected to that: Brett and I will run a 10K together). The 5 days don't even have to be the same workout or same intensity. Just so long as I am doing something.
- Drink more water a day, any amount is good seeing as how I don't drink much now. (so far this is the most difficult one, weird right?)
- Daily study the scriptures and improve my personal spirituality
- Continue to succeed in school by working hard daily and (once again) checking off lists
My first step forward...my new bright blue Nike running shoes I got for my birthday. Having cute shoes is a great motivation to stay active!
