October Goals Review

Posted October 30, 2014 in goals, goal setting, yoga and 10 more

Earlier this month, I set some small goals for October that would help me get closer to my overall fall goals.

I used Brooke: Not on a Diet's format for goal setting and set daily, weekly and monthly goals with a reward if I achieved those goals. I think I did OK. I definitely didn't accomplish all of my goals, but having something to check off every day made me work harder to achieve the goals that I had set.

Here's how I did...

Setting SMART Goals for the New Year

Posted December 31, 2015 in new year, goal setting, SMART goals and 5 more


The new year is almost here, which means it's time to set new goals! 

I absolutely love this time of year. It's a great time to reflect on your successes from the past year, and set new goals 

Many people avoid setting new year resolutions because they don't think they'll be able to stick to them. It's most likely because they're not setting specific and attainable goals. 

There's a simple equation that makes goal setting easy and will help you stick to your goals!

Today is a snow day!!

Winter Storm Kayla has hit Nebraska, and the city is shut down. 

There will be no playing in the fluffy snow during this snow fall. There are nearly 50 mph winds, so it's not a picturesque snow storm.

So far, I have slept in, drank coffee, browsed Instagram and ate avocado toast topped with eggs, turmeric, pink Himilayan salt and red pepper flakes. I'm taking things really slow today! Since I have an unexpected day off from work, I'm going to use the snow day to care for myself a bit.

On my snow day agenda: yoga/Pilates, reading, catching up on magazines, an at-home pedicure, wine, eating healthy comfort foods and organizing my home office.

Today is the perfect day to take some time for yourself. If you've already devised a long to do list, set it aside for at least an hour and take some time to care for you!

Over the past couple of weeks I've been putting a lot of pressure on myself to be productive. I've been creating rigidity in my days, scheduling out the work I need to do each hour of the day, to accomplish more. 

Yet, I still felt like I wasn't doing enough. I wasn't getting all the things on my to do list done and panic was settling in.

I've always been a list maker and someone who preferred to stay busy, but over the past few years I've also become someone who is a striver, a goal setter and a doer. Often to the point of getting burned out, overwhelmed and stressed.
