There has been a lot on my mind lately. Work. Life. School. Etc. I have come to the realization that I have pretty much half-assed most things in my life. And I am tired of making excuses. I want to feel accomplished. Accomplished to me does not mean having a lot of money, it means finishing what I start. So, my goal is to get back on track with all things in my life. First, I really want to get to my goal weight. I have been super un-motivated for about the last two months. I don’t even have a good excuse, I just didn’t want to do put the effort in. Second, although I do have my Associates degree, I have yet to complete my Bachelor’s. There are more areas I will continue to work on, but these are the main topics on my mind.
So, how am I going to get this procrastination way of thinking out of my head? I am going to challenge myself. Novel concept, I know. So…here’s the challenge: For the entire month of June 2010, I am going to give up coffee (again) and I am going to do something active EVERYDAY (Yes, 7 days a week). Active can mean going to the gym, for a walk, yard work, etc. It will be a minimum of 1 hour of activity per day. I will also post a daily blog concerning the challenge.
There will be several rewards: save money (I plan to take the money I would have spent on coffee and buy me some new clothes that fit), get closer to my goal weight, and feel like I have accomplished something!
This is definitely going to be a challenge. I figured I would start with focusing on my weight, since the healthier I feel, the more likely I will do well with the other parts of my life.
As for school, I finished applying for financial aid today. I don’t plan on using it, but my counselor recommended I apply for it and if I don’t need it I can decline it and if I do need it for some reason, it is there. Now…I am just waiting for word back on my transcripts, complete an intake interview, and then get started! I am sooo excited to go back to school. It will open up so many opportunities for me AND I will be able to mark that accomplishment off my list.
Wish me luck.
