5 things I need to improve on:
My negative thoughts- these have improved so much. My negative thoughts are usually non-existent when I blog consistently. I like getting my thoughts out and helping others, that is what makes my mind calm.
Eating habits- YES YES YES. FINALLY I have conquered my mind again and I am back to eating healthy. I live by the gorgeous 80/20 rule. Although next week, starting on Monday, Tati and I are going on the Paleo diet for the last week of our exercise plan, which will be very interesting.
Daily exercise- Tatiana and I started a workout plan that was 4 weeks long. I am going to write a post about this in 2 weeks when we finish it, showing my progress, but we are at the end of week 3 right now. We have not skipped 1 day. I cannot explain how incredibly happy I am about this. We even got Rachel to join in and that makes me happy because I want Rachel to get into better shape so she can start cheering again! The three of us go to the gym every single day; we revolve our days around it. Instead of “what are we going to do today?” It turned into “when are we gyming?” It has been over 21 days now, so it is officially a wonderful habit that I have developed.
Money spending- yeah, this one is still in the works, but from when I wrote this until now, I have improved tremendously.
Time management- it has taken me nearly 20 years, but I have finally started to learn the art of time management. I am on spring break right now and what are my plans? To finish my 3 research papers that I have due this semester. Most of them are not even due until April but I want to get ahead of the game so I don’t have to worry about them down the road. Rachel and I originally wanted to make plans to go to Panama City to see the great Luke Bryan… but I decided to be responsible instead.
Ways to improve on these things:
1. Don’t let the thoughts exist, block them out no matter what.
2. Only allow one unhealthy food to be eaten per day. (Looking back, I am not a fan of this one, but eh, it’s a learning process.)
3. No excuses here, if it makes you feel good then why wouldn’t you do it?
4. Limit yourself to sliding your card only once per day.
5. Set your day out more. Don’t give into the temptation of napping when there is stuff to be done. (This is where making lists came into play and boy did it help!)
5 things that I am doing very well:
1. Keeping my relationships healthy.
2. Being there for others.
3. Enjoying myself.
4. Trying to pick up my healthy habits. I have not given up yet, only been setback, but I always comeback.
5. Being home more often/with grandpa.
Little things that will cheer me up:
No naps, more water, more studying, more exercising, daily yoga, more light, don’t sit in the dark, make new friends, more sleep at night, stay awake in class, eat healthier, pack my lunch, make breakfast, go to work more often, think positive, be happy, spread job, random acts of kindness, enjoying every second.
How would you fill out these lists?
