Back at it. Goal setting. I love the beginning of a month. I feel all invincible and incredible, thinking that I can accomplish anything I want! Though it has, in recent memory, been somewhat of an exercise in expectation management. A lesson, let’s call it, in realistic goal setting.
Here’s what I want to do in October:
*p90x:: I started another round on September 24th, and I’m shooting for at least a B for October. I’ve decided to grade myself this month by assigning point values to each of my subordinate p90x goals and then seeing where I end up this month. Here’s the point breakdown:
*1 point for the daily workout
*1 point for meeting that day’s nutrition goal
*1 point for posting in the challenge thread
I don’t follow p90x as written. I do all the strength DVDs, but I skip the plyoX, kenpoX and yogaX. For cardio on the non-strength days I’ll either run, bike or swim. Lately though its been running. And I live close to a great yoga studio with an amazing instructor, so I don’t feel the need to do the YogaX DVD. I figure that there are 93 possible points in October, and to earn a B I’ll need to hit at least 75 points.
* run 10% more mileage in October than in September.
*Make a bed side organizer and a lap quilt for a friend.
*Take a photo a day.
*Blog consistently. I’m up for any ideas for posts. Is there anything you’d like to see or read more about? Let me know.
*Get caught up with our 2012 photobook.
*Write more. I downloaded Ali Edwards’s Storyology course and hope to put it to use. I’d like to have more story to go along with my photos (see above!)
