We are 4 months into the year and I thought I would take a look at how my goals are going so far. You can find my full post here, But I’ll summarize a bit and go over it.
So some resolutions include:
- get into hiking
- re-starting a yoga practice
- meditating daily
- journaling daily
- listen to my motivational podcast 3x/week
So hiking hasn’t happened yet, Canada + winter = not desirable. And apparently even though it’s April, the weather is still pretending it’s January so that’s cool too. I actually have been doing a ton of yoga! Not daily but pretty damn close. I do as little as a quick stretch/flow for 5 minutes or bang out a class for 60 minutes. It seriously zens me and I love it. It can be challenging, but I feel like that’s the point – pushing new limits while staying composed. Meditating hasn’t been daily, but definitely at least 3x a week. I am trying to remember to do it more often, it always makes me feel better and like I can accomplish anything. I’m also really getting into learning about manifestation and some ways to go about that. Journaling has just been a no-go. I don’t find it as therapeutic as some, and I feel silly doing it – so I pretty much don’t. Lastly, I am obsessed with podcasts! My top favourites include: Oprah’s Soul Sunday, Lavendaire, Self-helpless, and the Health Code. I 100% recommend all of them.
As for specific goals, I feel like I am crushing it quite honestly. I am down 12 pounds and counting, I have lost just over 2 inches on my hips, and 3 inches on my waist. I’m feeling a lot better, and I’m up to drinking 3L of water a day which is about 101 oz. I am almost done my second last semester and that’s my last semester of classes, my final semester is all in the field, so I’m on track to graduate + get my nursing license.
Trust me, it is not all rainbows though. But it is nice to remind myself that I am in fact working hard and achieving things. I’ve had a bad couple of days emotionally and am just trying to push through this last week of school. I have 1 exam next Tuesday, and 3 on Wednesday. I just gotta keep going.
If you are struggling with anything, look at what you have already done, or on track to do. Keep pushing. You got this.
