Sunday Short-term Goals - A day late

4 years ago

Sorry y’all for being a day late, but I was so excited about moving to just one band on my pull-up program that I forgot to update my goals for this week.

Before I start, I think you should all get to share in the thing of beauty that I am right now – as I write this. Prepare to be amazed. As I’ve mentioned before, I suffer from insomnia quite regularly.  So tonight, I am at a sleep clinic, where I will try to sleep while they monitor my nocturnal activities through electrodes currently strapped to my head. Trust me, it is as sexy as it looks…see?


  Ain’t I cute??

So I didn’t do fantastically on my last weeks short term goals.  I did accomplish #1 and 2 – I went to Crossfit 4x and I did my pull-up program 4 times, but I did not go to the Grocery store, #3, before we ran out of food and consequently we ate delivery and junk food quite a bit.

To be honest, I couldn’t really tell you why some weeks I eat well and am focused on nourishing my body and other weeks, all I want to do is eat popcorn and M&Ms…together…trust me, it’s delicious…also good with Smarties..but I digress.  Last week, was not a good week for eating healthy and I can definitely feel it in my workouts…especially now that I have moved down to just one band for my pull up program.

But it is super important that I don’t use these short-term goals to beat up on myself or feel guilty. They are something that I do to try and help myself live a healthier, happier life. There is no place for guilt or self-recrimination.  Just a commitment to keep trying.

So for this week, my 3 short-term goals are:

1) Go to CF 4 x a week and do my pull-up program (essentially these are the same goal so I’m merging them)

2) Spend at least 10 mins 3x a week without external stimulation

3) eat at least one healthy snack (fruit or vegetable) every day.

Again, not overly ambitious but good things that will help me live better.

What are your short-term goals?
