2010 goal update

1. Try yoga.

UPDATE: Done. I started practicing yoga in January and haven’t looked back. I used to avoid yoga because I didn’t think I could quiet my mind. Plus, I’m not very flexible. Now I take an hour each week to focus on restoring and rejuvenating my body and mind.

2. Reach/maintain a healthy body weight.

UPDATE: Half way there. I’ve reached goal. Hooray! Now for the maintaining part…

3. Stop biting my hands.

UPDATE: So far no good. Any advice is welcome. This is proving to be a tough one for me.I’ve realized that I’m less likely to bite and pick my hands if my nails are polished so I’ll be giving myself more manicures in the future.

4. Go to spin class.

UPDATE: Not yet. I don’t have a gym membership right now and won’t until I’m employed. This will happen as soon as I’m back living the Goodlife.

5. Learn to run.

UPDATE: Heck yes! I run my first 5K on July 24. Eep, that’s next weekend.

6. Find a better life/work balance.

UPDATE: Well, I can’t really do this one yet since I don’t have a job. My doctors have approved my return to the workforce so I’m currently job hunting. I am looking at job opportunities very carefully to ensure the positions I apply to will allow for a healthy life/work balance.

2.5 out of 6. I better get a move on! Half the year is already gone.

SOTS wonders… how are you doing with your goals?


  1. I wish I would have made some goals so I could see how I was doing! Maybe I need to make a list of things to try before the end of the year. :)

    I'd love to try a spinning class as well. My gym doesn't offer them though, I know the Y does and there's one not too far for me so I might pay for a guest pass and go try one at some point.

    I love yoga too, but I don't do it nearly as often as I'd like!

  2. as soon as you're living the Goodlife again let me know so you can come to one of my spin classes!! :) the 2 main goals i'm working on at the moment are 1) finishing my undergrad (so far so good, but these last couple of weeks are brutal!) and 2) finding a job.... i'm sure you can probably relate!

  3. So Very Fabulous - It's never too late to make a Goal list. :) Just name the time and the place and we can try spinning together!

    EatSpinRunRepeat - Great goals! You're so close to the first one! I'll let you know as soon as I'm back at Goodlife and you can kick my butt on a bike.
