Goals

Before I talk about my goals for this week, I need to wave my white flag. I am exhausted, physically and mentally. The 4 days in Chattanooga were very busy and tiring: I had to give a lot of energy to my awesome athletes, take care of Jack in a more challenging environment, miss seeing everyone cross the finish line, feel pulled in too many directions, etc. Then we came home and a couple of days later Andrew went to Atlanta for 4 days so I was on my own. And we had some fights before he left so my mood was bad, I wasn’t eating, I wasn’t getting any time to myself. Blah blah blah. It’s been a rough couple of weeks and I am finally crashing. All that whining can be TL;DRed as this: I haven’t been getting any of my goals done because I am burned out and I am finally realizing I need to give myself a break.

So, this week the goals will be very light to allow me to take a breather and recharge. The kids don’t have school this week, which will be both good and bad for recharging.  I won’t have much time to myself but I will have less on the to-do list and a more relaxed schedule. And now for the carnage – my goals from last week:

This Week’s Dailies:

Meditate – I did ok with this but didn’t do it every day. 

Log Food – I did this on some day and not on others. I was eating so little, and most of it was dark chocolate if I’m being honest. I went through 1.5 bars of Endangered Species chocolate in 3 days. 

Daily Strength Training – did M-F. I’m doing pushups and situps, that’s it. 

Express Gratitude to Someone – I wrote thank you notes to all my athletes this week and ALSO actually mailed them!
