In order to achieve my health and wellness goals for 2011 (my new years resolution, if you will), I’ve been making goals for myself each month.
So far, it’s been a major crash and burn. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m expecting too much of myself or what. Maybe 10 goals per month is a stretch.
I am so NOT consistent!
What am I trying to accomplish here?
My first goal was to get my allergies under control. I have done that for the most part. I started taking a nasal spray again, and that has dramatically reduced the occurrence of symptoms. That’s a huge plus, so I’m actually doing pretty well with my health goals in that respect. SCORE ONE FOR ME!
So what’s next on the list? Mood & Energy
I have dysthymia, so that explains a lot. I take prozac, and maybe it’s just not doing the trick anymore. It may be time to just go see the doctor and ask for a change in my medication.
For some reason, though, that answer isn’t enough for me. I really think it’s the excess sugar in my diet. But I just can’t shake the sugar! Like I said, I’m weak!
And I’m addicted to mochas. I tried the low sugar mocha frappuccino, but that tasted pretty gross.
Does it boil down to my own willpower? I haven’t the slightest idea.
Health Goals for March?
We shall see. I haven’t decided what I’m going to try this time around. I’m thinking I might take a step back and focus on what I can ADD to my life vs. what I should TAKE AWAY. Instead of trying to keep myself from enjoying a Mocha every day and stressing myself out from caffeine withdrawals, I should perhaps focus on making time to exercise in the morning. It’s just a thought, though.
Question: How are your health goals for 2011 coming along?
