The Revenge of Goals Wednesday

Back with a vengeance! A vengeance for...goals...yup. 

So, to recap, it's been almost a month since the last Goals Wednesday. What I said then stands true now; the constructive worrying may be the best goal I've ever made and kept. On Monday, during my constructive worry time, I made a list of everything I needed to do on Tuesday. I fell asleep without tossing and turning over tasks that needed to completed, and yesterday, I did everything on the list! I found that to be especially impressive, considering the list was at home and I completed all but two items (both of which had to be done at home) before returning to the house. 

If any of you are wondering what sorts of things I do during my constructive worry time, it varies a lot. Sometimes I'm paying bills, sometimes updating correspondence, working on a project, making a list, freaking out about where my life is going, or all of the above. If I allow myself a little time for all of that, it helps me keep it together the rest of the time, and it really does help me sleep. 

As I mentioned last time, I'm easing back into the weight & measurement thing. RIght now, at least once a week is my goal for weigh-ins--by Nov. 1st, I'd like to be back to daily weigh-ins, weekly measurements. This is also when I plan on re-starting my food journal and daily calisthenics/stretching. 

Right now, my goal is to keep up with the Couch to 5K program - Adam and I are planning on doing workout 2 of week 1 tonight. I'm nervous about adding in too much too fast, so the three times per week this gets me up and moving is great. 

I haven't forgotten about the juice fast! Adam and I have been getting a lot of use out of our juicer. This guy, for those who don't remember:

We have juice for breakfast most mornings. Right now I'm hoping next Thursday, Oct. 20th, will be the day we can start our juice fast. The only thing that would stop at this point would be new illness or injury, so, wish us luck!


  1. Sounds like things are going the right direction. Taking it slow is the way to go and no matter what you're making progress. Seeing (er...reading) you get back on track and get yourself motivated helps push me to keep up with my goals. You rock!
