Ugh, not a great day for me. I know I shouldn’t let one crappy day get me totally down, so instead I’m gonna use today as motivation to “clean up” some things in my life. I need to be completely honest with myself here.
I got in biiig trouble at work today. I never get in trouble. Overall, I’m a really good worker and I work my butt off there. BUT with that being said, if I have to be totally honest with myself, I think I’ve gotten a tad too “comfortable” there and perhaps I’ve been lacking in some ways that I wasn’t aware of. For starters, I need to keep my mouth shut and mind my own business. Go to work with a smile on my face, be nice to everyone, don’t let rude customers get to me, etc.
Another problem I am dealing with is my lack of motivation to exercise. Lack of exercise also translates to some unhealthy eating habits for me as well. When I am not exercising, I have a tendency to eat poorly too. I need to jumpstart my life again—there’s no reason for me to look in the mirror and be unhappy with what I see. I am the only one who can change how I look and feel about myself. I am in control. So, I am going to get up at 9:00 tomorrow morning and get ready for my yoga class at 9:30. I haven’t done yoga since December! And I haven’t exercised in about 3 weeks. I feel that a nice, relaxing yoga class is exactly what I need to get back into my routine.
Here is a list of my goals for the next few weeks… I want to see how things improve if I follow these:
-Spread positivity; no talking badly about others especially in relation to work
-Smile at each person you make eye contact with
-Sleep no less than 7 hours a night; 8 or 9 is preferred
-8-10 glasses of water per day
-5 servings of fruit and veggies every day (2 for fruit, 3 for veggies)
-Practice yoga more often; the stress relief is amazing
-Go running and lift weights 3x or more a week
-Cook more often & find healthy recipes for dinner
-Drink more tea
-Maintain an organized environment
-Follow the 1 minute rule: if something can be done in a minute or less, do it immediately
& that’s all I can think of for now! I hope I can stick to it :)
