Who could believe that it’s already June 2nd and we are halfway through our year?? Are you one of those people like me who begin thinking about “resolutions” at the beginning of any new year? Whether it’s making more time for yourself, exercising, or eating more nutritiously, resolutions tend to start strong in January… but by May or June are only a distant memory!
So what I’ve decided to do is make June my “Re-Resolution Month!” I am going to write my resolutions down (again!), and this time I’ll schedule an appointment with myself to review these goals weekly and chart my progress. If you know me, I am DATA-DRIVEN, so I hope that by charting my own progress, I will make myself accountable… to myself!
Spring of every school year is hectic and I was discouraged as I reflected on my progress, or lack thereof, towards my January 2016 resolutions. I’m a big believer that “Each day is a new day,” and I realized that there is no reason why my resolutions can’t fit this motto as well. In fact, it’s never too late to set a new goal or resolution for yourself – no matter what time of year it is.
Ryan and I have re-established our goal of eating nutritiously. We’ve listed the foods that we can eat, and the foods that we can’t eat, and have determined the number of times per week we can treat ourselves to the “not-so-healthy” foods. The list alone feels like progress for both of us!
I’ll keep you in the loop as to how we progress through the summer!
