I’m so happy all of you seem to be so excited for my new Tea Tuesday series! I’m excited, too, so it was nice to hear such great feedback after yesterday’s post! :)
Other than just being excited for Tea Tuesday, I’m also excited for the new month of September.
Lately, I haven’t making goals for myself at the beginning of each month, but I’ve been feeling like I’m in need of a little more structure in my life (it might have to do with school starting tomorrow!), so I’ve decided to make a few goals for myself this month and share them with you to hold myself accountable and, if all goes as planned, I’ll review these goals at the end of September and see how I did!
Incorporate nutrition into my posts as I mentioned yesterday, as I am a Nutritionist (and also studying to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist), I would like to incorporate more nutrition related knowledge into my posts.
Yesterday I read over some material to prepare myself for my upcoming school year and read about the most successful ways to learn the information you are given throughout your classes. Practice. So, I believe that if I incorporate more nutrition into my posts, I’m practicing my knowledge; therefore, learning more and always becoming more knowledgable. And I also want to provide you with information, so you can learn and develop an understanding about nutrition.
Practice double unders after yesterday’s workout I realized I need a lot of practice on these. It’s so unfair how it’s so much easier to picture yourself doing a double under (never mind consecutive double unders) compared to actually doing them or one in real life. I was able to get a few in here and there, but I can’t wait for the day when I can string together more than two double unders. Yes, right now two is my max.
Hopefully, by the end of September I can get at least three in a row. Progress, right? ;)
Try one new recipe a week because I’m in a huge rut. I was on a huge bread kick and then I ran out of bread. So, I moved onto bagels and then I ran out of bagels. Well, now I’m out of bagels and it seems like all I’ve been eating is sweet potatoes lately, so I’m definitely committing to trying at least one new recipe a week. I know this has been a goal of mine in the past, but I need more variety in my life. I love variety, so this goal is one I must implement. ASAP. I already have a list of recipes I want to try within the next few days…
Participate in Meatless Monday now that I’m a Team Vega Member I want to incorporate more plant based meals into my life. Heather hosts a great Meatless Monday link up that I’ve taken part in in the past, so I’d like to start that up again, but overall I’d just really like to incorporate more plant based meals into my diet. It will be a challenge for me, but a good one. A healthy one.
Make school my top priority this seems like such an obvious statement, but it’s something that I need to state and get out into the open so you all can see it. School is my top priority. If I miss a few days of blogging – so what. If my apartment is a mess for a few days – so what. If my laundry hamper is overflowing – so what! School is at the top of my priority list. This is my year to shine. I’m determined :)
Begin a gratitude journal as of September first I started a gratitude journal. Each night I will be writing down one thing that I’m grateful for that day. I’ve done this in the past, but have gotten out of the routine, but I’m ready to get back into it. It’s such a great habit to get into and it makes me feel so much happier and so much, well, grateful! What an amazing feeling! Feel free to join in with me! Please let me know if you do :)
Participate in Self Care September my good friend Anna had an amazing idea. Self Care September! You can read more about her idea here, but basically it’s a challenge that encourages everyone to take a little bit more care of themselves during this busy month of September! Self care can be anything from taking time to paint your nails one day or taking a long relaxing bath at the end of a long work day. Anything that shows self care! I love this idea and will definitely be showing myself more self care each and everyday because it’s so important! In order to participate in the challenge, post a picture of you showing self care and use the #selfcaresept hashtag when posting your picture :)
I can’t wait to see how you show yourself more self care!
Today I’m going for a haircut before my first day of school. Definitely #selfcaresept right there ;)
Will you be participating in #selfcaresept? Have you made goals for yourself this month? Who will be joining me in writing down one thing that they’re grateful for each day?
