Last night after we got home from trick-or-treating and I was on my 5th 'fun size' chocolate bar I had a brilliant idea, I'm going to write a blog post every day for 30 days using random journal prompts or just things I want to write. I'm sure I will be cursing myself at some point but who cares that will be a problem for my future self to worry about like laundry and cleaning.
At the beginning of each month, I come up with a couple goals that I want to achieve and November isn't any different. This month I came up with 3 goals:
#1 Read and write every day.
I'm going to read and write for 30 minutes, every day. I will do my writing in the morning while my boys are eating their breakfast which is typically around 6 and it takes them FOREVER so this should give me more than enough time to get a blog written out or work on a story I've been writing. I will be doing my reading at night as a way to settle down before bed
#2 Drink 8 Glasses of water.
I want to avoid drinking a lot of sugar and water helps flush your system so my goal is to drink 8 glasses. I will be using my straw cup which I've noticed I drink more when I use it plus its pretty big so for each one I drink I will count as 2 glasses.
#3 Go to the gym or do work out 3x a week.
I want to get back to working out and I have a gym membership that I haven't been using so I have to get back at it. This month money is pretty tight so instead of just sitting at home stressing and trying to think of something to do I will just go to the gym. I'm going to have to figure out a plan and make sure I plug it into my planner.
Hopefully, these 3 goals will help with my mental health and staying on track to achieve my yearly goals.
