New month, new chart! These goals were supposed to start on the 1st and I’m sticking with that, even though that means I missed a day already! Here they are:
I already missed a day of drinking my water and a day of tracking. I am still trying to be mostly-Paleo also but I make my goals according to what I feel is needed the most right now. As you can see, I am putting an emphasis on workouts but I don’t want to slack off on the food so I am requiring that I track my food too! Here is the new chart I made. I also made a new excel file that is much easier to work on but it is only set up for you to track 10 days at a time. As always, if you’d like a copy, send me a private message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I still haven’t done my long run this week yet. I was going to go this morning but I slept so great, I was savoring it (aka sleeping in and slacking off). I figured out what was missing, making me sleep so badly. Rob! I think that’s the answer to my problems. Too bad he can’t be around every night 🙁 I have to get it in tonight or tomorrow morning if I want to do another long run this weekend. They are only 7 and 8 miles right now so its not so bad. If they were double digits, I wouldn’t be trying to cram them in so close together! Scary that I consider 8 miles a shorter run now. That is a long way from 3 years ago when I was doing Couch to 5K!
I’m not sure how I feel about doing 10 day goals but I’m giving it a go. Its a nice number, not too long, not too short but it doesn’t line up with the calendar at all! It runs until next Tuesday this time, so what if I move my workouts around? I might miss a run or a strength training workout. We will see how this goes! It is nice to have a shorter time span to worry about goals though!
Do you have any goals for this week? Do you like making short term or long term goals better?
I have long term goals but the short term goals get me there. For example, I can’t run that marathon in October without doing a couple runs each week leading up to it. But typically, I don’t usually make long term ones. I like going with the flow and putting solid plans on paper for months from now is not my thing. Who knows what could happen between now and then!
