For the month of November, I want to work on three different goals. These goals are more of a progressive thing so I won’t be officially “completing” them but I’m working on getting better at these things.
1. I’d like to workout 5x a week with a mixture of weightlifting and cardio, of course.
Ever since I started school and working two jobs as well, I feel like I never have time. When I do have time, I am too exhausted to do anything else. I need to work on getting my workout in early or right at the very beginning of my day. When I wait to do my workouts at the very last-minute at night, I find excuses to not do them and I tell myself I’ll do them tomorrow.
I’ve had weeks where I only worked out twice a week and I hate that! I am going to run 30 minutes to 1 hour 3x a week, and lift 2x a week.
2. I want to start rock climbing more often.
I recently went indoor rock climbing in St. Louis and FELL IN LOVE. It was seriously such an awesome experience and I can’t wait to do it again. My arms felt like jello the next day and I really enjoyed that feeling.
I love the day after of feeling extremely sore because it shows me I had a great workout and that I should have possibly warmed up and stretched better? Haha. I found a rock climbing gym nearby with pretty decent prices, but I’ll be talking more about that in my rock climbing post.
3. I’d like to focus more on my eating as well.
I do eat pretty healthy and I seldom go out to eat anymore, but I find that there are days when I am craving more than usual. I think this might be due to stress but I also have realized my meals are pretty boring. I find that when I am around food that takes awhile to prepare and isn’t simply 1-2 ingredients, I eat way more of it because I’m simply never around food that has a variety of flavors. I’m used to cooking such basic meals at home and that does get boring to me.
I have new goals for the month of November and I’m glad to say I’ve completed goals I’ve had set for the couple of months before. I recently have been working on being more positive and optimistic and I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy before. I’m not really sure what happened, but something simply clicked and anytime something negative happens to me I automatically look at it in a positive light. I used to be such a complainer and negative nancy but I feel like a whole new person!
What are your goals for the month of November? Anything you want to work on that you didn’t get to complete in October?
Also, if anyone can help me with #3 goal, I’d really appreciate it. I need to find recipes that I can cook that are delicious but aren’t so simply but easy-ish to make! I need to get more variety in my meals.
