November Goals – Starting Today
When I work with my health coaching clients the first thing we do is set out 1 month, 3 month and 6 month goals, however setting the goals just isn’t enough it’s what comes after. Once you set your goals it’s time to make action steps which are the steps you need to take to achieve your goals. Below are my goals for November and the action steps I will be taking to achieve my goals.
- Exercise 5-6x per week and yoga 7x per week. I am currently training for my first half marathon but I know I need to step up my cross training, weights and yoga. To help increase my exercise I am planning to do 30 days of yoga (details to come) and I am also doing 3 days of running for my half-marathon training. For the other 2-3 days I will go to the gym with my husband to do cross training (swimming, biking, elliptical) and of weights.
- Drink more water. Each day I will have 1 glass of water upon waking up and then upon arriving to work fill up my 1L cup at work at least twice (drinking all of it). Evenings I will then drink at least additional liter of water. On weekends I’ll carry a water bottle with me so that I can stay hydrated no matter where I am.
- Keep my kitchen clean. I cook nearly three meals per day resulting in piles of pots, pans and plate. Since a messy kitchen is no fun to cook in I am going to work harder to keep it clean. To help keep my kitchen clean I am going to spend 30 minutes per day picking up my kitchen. If the kitchen is already clean or it takes less than 30 minutes to clean it then I will spend the remaining time picking up another area in the house.
- Do something for me (and him). This month the Hubz and I are going to use one of our Living Social deals to go get ourselves a massage because we desire it. We work hard and rarely treat ourselves to the spa. It is really important to take time to take care of yourself. So I am going to go and schedule an appointment by Sunday night for sometime this month.
