I totally skipped May/June resolutions. Busy months. Yikes. Let’s just go straight to July/August.
My July/August goal is to work on my book proposal. But I have A1c Champions training and health coaching and some other diabetes advocacy related endeavors. So instead I’m changing my goal to something I’m needing right now and that’s to exercise more. I gain weight if I don’t do a lot of cardio (just the way I’m built I suppose) so though I have a lot of muscle tone, I need to jiggle off some fat before my frustration about said fat gets the best of me. I plan on getting to the gym 3 times a week to do just cardio. Hold me to it.
Ana’s goal is to research graduate schools and programs. This year she commences her senior year studying studio art and teaching and she has chosen to continue education. Annie, consider this your reminder. Hehe.
Anyway, if you’re new to my goal accomplishment system it’s called the 6 change method by Leo Babauta. He is the widely popular blogger behind zenhabits.net. Basically, you pick one change you want to make and focus on it for two consecutive months-plenty of time to make it a habit.
This method worked great for me last year and I’m excited to do it this year. The blog adds a bit of accountability for me, too. That, and I share it with my husband so he can help remind me of my goals.
Do you have a way of forming habits or making changes or accomplishing goals? Share!
