My Mini Goals for the Week

We all have big huge goals for ourselves – health goals, career goals, personal and/or financial goals. You don’t have to spend ALL your energy on the big mamma-jamma goals though… It’s great to have them, but it’s also important to have mini ones every now and then too. Mine this week:

1) Floss every day. 

Because just like working out, if you only do it every now and then, it’s going to hurt like hell every time you start back up… and so you’ll avoid it. If you get into the habit of it, it’s not as bad, you’re healthier, and everything is better. And just like Julia Roberts’ character, Vivian, states in Pretty Woman, “You shouldn’t neglect your gums.”

2) Run with Tango at 7:30am, 3 days this week. 

It’s going to be a hot, muggy week so getting my run in and my dog walked, simultaneously and early, are both good things. I’ve been having trouble running lately with this pain in my abdomen, but if the running doesn’t happen, the walk certainly will. And what better way to do it than first thing in the morning? Well, second, after teaching my TRX Bootcamp class…

3) In bed by 9:30, 30 minutes of reading, every night.

The first part is easy. I wake up at 5am most days of the week so usually I’m ready to pass the F out before 10pm anyway. I’ve got a great new book though but haven’t been reading it. I have the bad habit of taking my computer to bed with me and cruising Facebook and Instagram before sleeping. This is bad for two reasons: 1) I lose track of time while aimlessly scrolling down these endless pages and often stay up later than planned. 2) Looking at brightly lit screens is one of the worst things you can do before you go to sleep. It actually stimulates your brain, making you more alert and awake, therefore making it harder to fall asleep and less likely to get good, quality sleep once you’re out. Computer out, book in! I’m excited about my new book and would like to get it finished this week!

Do you have any mini goals you’re working on at the moment?
