I usually share some pictures of my weekend on Monday mornings, but since I didn’t take many, and I’m wanting some accountability for the upcoming month, I decided to do things a little different today.
I’ve got some lofty goals in store for the year, but there are a few smaller tasks I want to try to focus on this month. I’ve realized that changing your entire life is impossible to do at all at once, but taking tiny steps is easy!
Here’s what I want to do this month:
Keep working out:
I’ve done really well the last few weeks as far as working out goes, and it feels great. This month I’m determined to keep it up. For me, that means either bikram yoga or a walk/run with the assistance of C25K at least 5 times a week.
I’ve realized that setting out my workout clothes and planning what I’m going to do ahead of time does wonders. Making decisions, even ones as small as what to wear, takes energy that I need to get my work out on.
Take an acting class or 2:
Last month, I took a giant step and signed with a talent agency. Now I’ve got some work to do. I’ve gotten new head shots but if I want to really succeed, I need to get a little more comfortable with the audition process.
I’ve already taken the first step with this goal and signed up for Tom Booker’s commercial audition workshop.
I’m excited but a little nervous. I’ve been really lucky in my life in the fact that I haven’t had to do much auditioning, and I’m worried I’ll freak out when it becomes time. But that’s what the classes are supposed to help!
Read for pleasure:
I’ve been so busy the last few weeks, I’ve barely had time to slow down enough to enjoy a good book. I try to read for a while before I sleep, but I usually fall asleep within 5 minutes. This makes me sad. I think it’s important to self-soothe, and I deserve a little more of it this month.
Step up the Mindfulness:
I’m really proud that I’ve been able to stick to my meditation goal, but I want to start incorporating those tools more into my daily life. I know that I’ve made some improvement, as my stress and anxiety levels have decreased significantly-but I still know that I could be more mindful. I want to be a better listener, a better partner, and a better friend. I know that being present and getting out of my own head will help in all of these areas
I was doing so well in this department, but my priorities shifted a bit in April. The weather is so beautiful and I want to say yes to as many opportunities as I can that will get me outside and around people. I really want to try to go to a movie in the park, increase my workouts with my friends, and maybe go throw a frisbee,
Take Care of My shit:
I’m sad to admit that there are quite a few important things that I’ve put off for a while. I still need to get my oil changed, get my car inspected and get Stevie Ticks her updated shots. I also want to make appointments for a physical, look into seeing a dermatologist, and finally call about an overdue medical bill that insurance was supposed to cover.
So many things. But I think if I can just choose one task per day, I can get them done.
What are your goals for the Month? CAN I DO THIS?
