Unfortunately, no cute little graphics to show off my goals for this month. Instead, that picture is why I haven't been around these parts .... I've been working my ass off. That was my first day off in many, many moons and I celebrated hard. But, I can get into that later.
April is going to be the month of getting back on track. The fun times are over. The adjustment period is over. This month is all about figuring out the tough stuff and finding a way to make important to me work.
1) Run 25 miles.
This one is incredibly important. I haven't made time for running lately and I can feel it. My back hurts. I'm restless. Running is a huge part of who I am and I need to force some time for it.
2) Blog every day.
Well, 5 days a week -- my usual posting schedule. This blog is something that I cherish and I've worked so hard on. And lately, I've let it fall by the wayside. No more! My blog is going to get some special treatment this month and I have huge plans. Stay tuned.
3) Hike! And Bike!
I need to spend more time outside when I am actually off work. I haven't been biking in so long and I miss it so much.
4) Read 2 books.
I'm not going to get all crazy and make huge reading promises, but I think I can handle two books. Especially because one of those books will be the third and final book of the Hunger Games series.
5) Stay on budget.
I've been really good lately, but I need to stick a little closer to my budget this month. Suddenly, I have a disposable income, but that is no excuse for disposing of it.
6) Start couponing again.
I feel so accomplished when I save money and I just have avoided the grocery store for two months because I haven't been cutting any coupons. I have a mountain of them on my desk that I need to go through. If this is truly that important to me, I need to make an effort.
So there you have it. I want to make time for the things that are important to me. I've used this excuse of "I'm still adjusting" for two months now and I need to finally adjust. This is my new schedule and I need to make due with it.
