Only eat added sugar on the weekend. // Yes. (Aside from a few days, but 90% of the time, yes!) I feel so much better and will continue to do this for the foreseeable future. I didn’t feel restricted because I knew I could eat sugar on the weekends. But I also found that eliminating the possibility made it easier to not eat sugar. NBD.
Eat a salad most days. // Most days, yes. I find that having chopped romaine in the salad spinner in the fridge makes it easier to grab salad for lunch. Then I’ll build a meal around it. Sometimes I plop some leftovers on it – chili salad? Why not!
Get a small medical procedure done. // Done. (It was nothing serious, but involved a little scalpel and skin and stuff. But it confirmed that I am v. squeamish and not well-suited for the medical field.)
Plan our summer. // YES. D.C., Montreal, Tennessee, Ohio, and our 10 year anniversary trip! All the trips! Yay. I wanted something to look forward to this summer since the whole taking-care-of-an-infant plan didn’t pan out.
Do 10 minutes of weights 4 times a week. // Most weeks, yes. And I feel strong! I was doing Jillian Michaels for 10 minutes a day until YouTube removed her videos. Womp womp. I do love FitnessBlender because they have SO many options and filters to look for a workout. I love feeling sore. It’s so satisfying. Like that feeling after you floss. (Hi, I’m weird.) I will continue this next month as well!
JUNE INTENTIONS & GOALS-
Meditate for 2 or 3 minutes a day // Start small. Don’t laugh at my mini goal. I did an amazing 30 day meditation challenge from Do You Yoga a few years ago, and it was incredible. I want to start smaller this time to create a more sustainable habit. Breathe is my favorite app for this, but I’m still on the lookout to see if there’s one even better (and free!).
Put phone in airplane mode during breakfast and bedtime. // In the pursuit of not having a phone addiction and missing out on the best days of my life (or something less dramatic.). I don’t want to romanticize screen-free living, so I admit I often pick up the nearest magazine or book when I don’t have my phone.
Text one friend every day. // This happens most days anyway, but I want to make a concerted effort to stay in touch with all my friends friends. I’ve been getting together a lot with local friends, but I want to stay in touch with my beloved long-distance pals.
10 minutes of strength training at least 4 times a week & no sugar on weekdays. // Carrying these over because I like the way they make me feel.
JUNE. When did this happen and where is this year going? I must be getting older because months just fly by at this point while I stand still and watch in awe.
