"High Ho, High Ho, now off to work we go." Now are you singing it?
It is January and for me that means making a plan. So this year, I think I will take it one month at a time...mark down some objectives and see what happens. I know not to plan too far in advance and not to be too set in my plans...God seems to always come along and change them anyway.
First goal for this month..."High Ho, High Ho - Off to the Gym I Go!!!"
I worked out alot this past year, but the scales didn't reflect lower numbers. I did, however, lose a couple of inches, but not enough to change my clothes size. I have also observed that I am an emotional eater. Now since confession is good for the soul, I hope acknowledging that fact will help me to watch it. So when I'm in a stressful event or just feeling bored - I need to learn how to relieve that feeling by a more productive way... other than eating.
Second goal of the month - Clean out and Organize my pantry and refrigerator
After the holidays, both need attention. I need to cook up some freezer breakfasts and meals for the remaining basketball season. If I have healthier alternatives available to both my teenage son and me, we will eat better.
Third goal - Well, the appointment is set...UGH!!!!!!!! So that annual doctor's appointment that was three years ago...well, it is finally on the calendar and I must go!
Fourth goal - Do something fun that re-energizes me. It is too easy to be caught up in children's schedules and never leave any time for play. I am going to work on at least one fun thing for each month. I think I might take a weekend off to go see my friend...this is something I have never done and it would be good for me to try something new and refreshing. She is one of my friends who says, "pull up your big girl panties and deal with it!"
Fifth goal - Do something creative. I think I will paint my laundry room. It connects to my kitchen and I sooooooooooo LOVE my kitchen walls that I will carry that color into the laundry room. I will put in some accents of red to cheer me up while I am doing that weekly chore.
How about you? Do you have some things you are planning on this month? So, here it goes for my once-a-month goals...we will see what twists and turns happen.
