I want to get my garden area ready for planting - if not start planting by the end of the month.
I also want to get my trees planted this month. The location that we want to plant them is where there was a huge pile of aggregate concrete from the previous owners. I worked this past weekend on moving the concrete and have about 90% of it moved. My legs are killing me. My arms a little bit. But I need to clear the rest of the concrete and till up the ground. Then dig holes to plant the trees. Apple, cherry, peach, and apricot.
I want to do better at cooking meals at home. I've been slacking in that department, but have been a little better recently.
Lastly, I am switching doctors because as of the end of this month I can no longer go to the college's medical center because I am graduating I think I know where my new doctor will be. I need to get in there and talk to them about my medications for depression and my weight...my husband and I want to start having children sometime soonish...

Thanks for posting this. My goals are to: Exercise 4 times a week (adding 5 minutes each week. am at 25 min.) Try to avoid the processed foods and cook at home. Keep up with the water instead of diet coke. Start a poetry/ creative writing journal (I tend to get really obsessive w/ the nutrition goals and thought this would help).

Judy, Yes, it is so easy to get into a new month, you look at the calendar and a week goes by, then another....without setting some goals. This just helps me stay focused and set the mini-goals each day. I hear you when schedules get irregular we need to look at how late our last meal or snack is and set a cut off like you do.
Kali, you sure got alot of new things going on. How exciting to be graduating. Clearing that ground was alot of work, too. Sounds like you guys got a litle orchard planned! Good luck in getting a new doctor. I need to get a general family practice one and a OBGYN, too.
Rachael, I like that you are branching off from the strictly nutrition goals because we are "whole" people and need outlets that let us be creative. I think when we develop and have these outlets it does help this healthy journey.
I found inspiration in motivational quotes like this one:
I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
Drink 64 ounces of water a day Log ALL of my food every day Clean and organize my desk and finish filing Lose 1-1/2 to 2 pounds a week (I still have about 100 pounds to lose so this is a realistic goal if I stay on track) Exercise, even a little bit, six days a week
The most exciting, challenging, significant relationship you have is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone who loves the you that YOU love, that's fabulous SW 286 CW 259 GW 165
Limit empty calories of whatever type. Eat more soup/get spouse to make it more. Have healthier, smaller lunches. Resist non-fruit sugar sources. Think of art supplies, not junk. Be more available for my spouse. Be more mindful of my mood and my voice. Draw every day, or at least every other day, and every day on the weekends. Further reduce clutter in my house. Continue to eat clean.
