Goals I’m Struggling With by Cassie Parlotto | Mar 5, 2019 | Spirituality | 0 comments Happy Wednesday, y’all! It’s hard to believe we are almost a week into March. Yikes. I setup a bunch of goals at the beginning of the year, and now we are already a couple months in. My first goal was to get into a good exercise routine. Thanks to my new love, TURN cycling in Sandy Springs, I have knocked this one out of the park. I easily go 5+ times a week, and love every minute of it. I have three other goals I am working on right now, and two I am STRUGGLING with. One is getting into a good eating routine. I am not on a diet and only have a vague idea of how much I weigh (and don’t really care), but I do try to consciously eat healthy foods. When I am eating healthy, I feel good and have energy. During the week, I pack my breakfast and lunches and have a good routine. Dinners are pretty decent too. I am struggling with the afternoon snack, when you get home from work and are starving but it isn’t time for dinner yet. I think I just need to get a snack for this particular time (turkey burger patty??), as currently there is nothing and then I eat something I normally wouldn’t. Then there are the weekends. The hubs and I eat out most of the weekend. For the most part, I don’t overeat, but I am much more likely to eat stuff that makes me feel like crap. UGH. Need to come up with a good strategy. I am not usually about punishing myself with exercise, but I thought about enforcing the “you can eat junk but you have to work it off rule”, which I have done before when I need a kick in the pants. For me, it just makes me stop and think before engaging in bad eating habits. Is a piece of cake worth a 60-90 minute run? HECK NO. If I can’t kick this soon, I will need to incorporate some affirmations so I can reprogram my brain – who apparently thinks it can eat whatever it wants on the weekend with no consequence. 😀 What do you do to combat the weekend junk fest???? The second one I am struggling with is my morning routine. I feel like it’s been out of whack since I started my new job back around Thanksgiving. I have a handful of things I like to do during my quiet time in the morning, and I feel like it hasn’t been consistent. I usually get some part of it done each morning, but it is never the same things and rarely all the things. I am up pretty early as is, and shoot to be in the office in my chair by 7:30. I can get up early early, but that means I need to be in bed early, and that has been hard as the husband gets home later and we usually don’t even have dinner till 8pm or later. I have toyed with splitting my “me time” between the morning and the afternoon, so I don’t have as much to do in the morning, so I think that is my next step. It would look something like this: AM: Meditate, Affirmations, Vision Board, Gratitude (25 minutes) PM: Read, Affirmations, Vision Board, Gratitude (25 minutes) Self care is a HUGE priority for me. When you get into a good self care practice, everything else falls into place. My goal is to have these two that I am struggling in worked out during the month of March. By April 1st, I want to move on to other things on my list. What about you? We are a couple months into the year. If you had goals, how is it going?
