Well, well, well, here we are in June already. How time flies when you set goals. Okay, time tends to fly whether or not you have goals but it goes extra fast, I think, when you have goals. This isn’t necessarily scientific fact (you know, like climate change) but just Tanya thoughts, which have been known to be wrong. And occasionally crazy.
How Did I Do in May?
Yo. I did just fine. That’s right I set two simple goals of blogging twice a week and exercising five times. And guess who is a Goal Queen? That’s right. Me. Little ‘ol me.
Goal Met: Blogging Twice a Week
I did not blog Memorial Week because I typically don’t blog during holiday weeks. While this break wasn’t noted in my original May Goals post (oops, my bad), I’m still counting this as a victory. My blog, people. My rules.
Goal Met: Exercising Five Times in May
Whew. I honestly just made this goal. Five times a month seems so doable because it is, but I made the mistake of not scheduling when I would exercise, so it was at whim. Not my best move because I can be a horrible procrastinator. And I might have needed to exercise three times the last week of May … including May 30th and 31st to reach my goal. But again, it doesn’t matter when I exercised, it matters that I did.
Two Goals for June Because I Like Simplicity
Listen, why fix what’s not broken? And I met my goals. I exercised, which is something I haven’t done in a loooooooong time and should have been doing. Hello, weight gain. I hate found pounds. And blogging is good for my mental health. It helps me connect and get thoughts out of my head, but laziness (and a certain amount of meh-ness) kept from regularly sitting down at my laptop.
My goals for June will be blogging AND exercising twice a week. Blogging days will remain Mondays and Thursdays with workouts scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays. I’d like one day to be strength training and the other day to be cardio but that’s not set in stone. It’s cool if I do something else but I must exercise twice a week. I’m also hoping by setting workout days that exercise won’t be an afterthought, which happened to me last month.
Routine is the Real End Goal
If we’re being honest, routine is really what I seek. Blogging and exercise are simply the vehicles I’m choosing to get some routine back into my life. Sometimes I chafe at too much rigidity because I see myself as a creative free spirit, but routine also provides comfort and direction too. I can be extremely disciplined and also very undisciplined. Because I’m complex, people. Super, super (not) complex. 😉
