Day Thirteen: Goals For May

Goals are important, I get that. If you don't have something to work towards, you get lazy. But at the same time, I hate making goals for myself, because I feel so terrible if I DON'T achieve them. I think I always set my sights so high, because in that moment I feel like I can do anything. And then reality sets in and I'm elbow-deep in a bag of Cheetos having a Supernatural marathon on Netflix. So goals and I, we've got some figuring out to do.

In an effort to keep myself from having a failed-goal-induced meltdown, I think this month I'm going to stick with this goal: keep doing what I'm doing. I'm planning, I'm tracking, I'm cooking, I'm training for a 5K, I'm blogging about it. Those are the things I'm doing, and those things are working. I don't want to overcomplicate my life by adding "Complete 500 Pushups" or "Make Some Friends" or "Run More/Faster" to the list of things I want to accomplish. I mean, I would like to accomplish those things, don't get me wrong. But right now it's time to focus on the basics.

So, in conclusion, my goals for May are as follows:

  1. Make a meal plan every week and try super duper hard to stick to it.
  2. Limit eating out to once every 1-2 weeks.
  3. Continue following my 5K training plan (my race is on June 2nd, can't back off now!).
  4. Blog at least 3 times a week...ish.

So those are my goals for May. No "Lose 25 Pounds" or "Become an Olympic Weight Lifter." Just simple things I actually feel confident about accomplishing.
