tracking of my progress on my resolutions - I'm already doing better so far this month; I'm opening the calendar every day to track my progress again but still I find myself forgetting how much water I'm drinking. Time to break out the paper and pen!
My Goals for 2010
7.5+ hours of sleep
Still keeping up with my bad habit of only getting enough sleep on weekends, sadly. Apparently I'm also really bad at getting to bed earlier when I book early morning medical appointments or have to get my sister ready for school.
Each snack must contain a vegetable or fruit
This goal is going well, except I was bad about writing down exactly what I ate during the month. I'm also bad when it comes to making sure I'm still snacking when I'm not at work, but I'm not too worried about it because I should focus on eating every 3-5 hours as opposed to eating five times a day. However, I do realize that this is a missed opportunity to get in my veggies and fruit for the day!
Be able to do 100 full, proper pushups without stopping by December 2010.
As I mentioned last month, I took a break from pushups during October as I ended up increasing my kickboxing training to about six days a week for this. As expected, I haven't gotten back into the pushups, and honestly, I don't think I'm going to. We did pushups in class the other day - I could only do 30.
Drink at least 48 oz of water at least three days a week, INCLUDING Thursday, Saturday or Sunday.
Overall, it looks like I did better in October than I did in September, especially since I did dig up a water bottle (which I ended up losing at the beginning of this month - boo) but making sure I stay hydrated when I'm not at work still eludes me.
I will save at least ⅓ of my paycheque every month in hopes of buying a house/condo within walking distance from my work by 2011-2012.
I only saved about 1/7 of my paycheque this month. Had to make another life insurance payment.
Wishes for 2010
Do a thorough room purge.
Still haven't done that.
Recipes/techniques I wanted to try this year
Nothing from the list this month.
Continue upward trajectory of posts this year
I posted my 89th entry on Halloween, which means I have exceeded the total number of posts that I wrote in 2009! Cross this off the list!
Include nutrition information for my recipes whenever possible
Haven't backtracked since April.
October was a topsy-turvy month for a lot of reasons and I'm finally enjoying a "normal" schedule week, which I haven't been able to do in weeks. Sleeping in till 7:30 on Monday was reward enough (for surviving October), though just in case it isn't, I'm going to redeem my "birthday presents" from La Senza and Sephora this week and finally check out the new Chinook Centre expansion!
