Update on July Goals

July 22, 2014

So far I am doing OK on my July goals. Not great, but better then even I actually expected. Here is a quick update so far:

Lose 5 to 10 pounds.
I have lost 2.5 pounds so far, so I guess that’s something. I don’t want to get too excited in case I end up gaining them back. But the end of the month is quickly approaching and I’m not sure if I can make it to my goal of losing 5 to 10 pounds.

Walk at the very least 2 miles five days a week.
Ha ha ha ha, nope. I did start exercising again but twisted my ankle yesterday when weed-eating so that will throw me off.

Manage my time better.
I don’t think I will ever be able to accomplish this task.

Go on some kind of day trip.
This hasn’t happened yet, but I am hoping we can somehow squeeze in a small day trip before the end of the month.

Wash the outside of our house.
I actually did this task a week or two ago. But it didn’t give me the results I was hoping for. Our house has wood siding that is painted a grayish blue. And I thought that giving it a good scrub down would make it look so much better. While it did improve the look a bit, the siding is just so stained that it still looks a bit dingy.

Get the basement cleaned up.
Haven’t tackled this task yet.

Re-organize and clean the storage room.
Starting on this one sometime day.

Increase the number of clients I have.
I am extremely happy to say that I did increase my number of clients. And while it was an increase of only 3 (so far), it looks like I will be working with those 3 new clients on multiple projects.

Finally make that BIG decision.
Another goal that I haven’t even begun to touch. I am still wishy washy on this decision. Some days I feel like it would be great and am full steam a head, and other days I am like “WTF, how could I even consider it!”

    Congrats on losing 2.5lbs! That’s still something and impressive. 🙂 walking is my form of exercise, so I do it when I can. My fitbit definitely helps, since I love quantifying everything into numbers and badges. I hope your leg gets better soon, and you can continue waking. 🙂
    And congrats on your new clients!!

    Congrats on the weight loss, but sorry to hear you hurt your ankle. That sucks…and I’m sure it’s frustrating not being able to walk/exercise the way you want. I hope it gets better quick! And don’t feel bad about being up in the air about “that” decision. I’ve already made that decision and there are still days when I wake up in the middle of the night and am like “what the fuck am I doing and thinking going through this?!!”. I’ve come to the conclusion that our changing moods will never truly help us feel “comfortable” about that type of decision. I still question if I’m doing the right thing; it’s frustrating.
