Happy Monday! It’s the first full week of May and I am sharing my goals.
Before we get to the May goals, I want to share the update on my April goals. I did pretty well!
Goal 1: Walk 5+ miles every day. I need most of those miles to be outside. Yes! I did it! I walked a ton outside and am pretty sure I am wearing a path in my neighborhood’s sidewalks.
Goal 2: Do one hour of yoga a week. This is a big jump from my 0 hours of yoga a week, but I think it will be good for my brain and my body to incorporate it. Nope, sure didn’t. I did three yoga workouts all month.
Goal 3: Read my magazine. I get one magazine a month, Good Housekeeping, and I love it but I never make time it read it. Yes! I did it while I dyed my hair. Perfect amount of time.
Goal 4: Read at least 1 book a week. I have so many good books on my kindle right now from NetGalley that I really need to give them my time. Yes, I read 4 books this month!
Goal 5: Look for the sunshine. By that I mean keep finding the positives that are happening all around me, even in the midst of this scary pandemic. Yes! It was definitely hard sometimes, but I kept searching for the sunshine!
Goal 1: Complete the Core Challenge on Peloton.
Strategies: set my workout schedule for the week, have the boys join me, find friends to join me (Anyone want to join me?? Peloton is free for 3 months now…)
Goal 2: Start running 2 times a week.
Strategies: set my workout schedule for the week, slowly add miles so I keep feeling good, head to the track early in the morning when it shouldn’t be busy, hop on the treadmill for a run with Netflix)
Goal 3: Read 5 books. It is Summer Beach Read season and I have so many books to read.
Strategies: keep my kindle with me all the time, keep reading when I wake up in the middle of the night, read for 20 minutes when I wake up, family reading time in the afternoon/evening
Goal 4: Start wearing earrings and/or a necklace every day.
Strategies: put earrings on as soon as I get up, organize my jewelry so the casual necklaces are on the hanger in my room
Goal 5: No shopping for fun stuff until Memorial Day because I am not going anywhere and there are plenty of comfy, cute clothes and shoes in my closet and dresser.
Strategies: unsubscribe from emails, stop and think “do you need this”, revisit my Declare It Day goals.
Goal 6: (Repeat from last month)Look for the sunshine. By that I mean keep finding the positives that are happening all around me, even in the midst of this scary pandemic.
Strategies: talk about things that went well at dinner, take some deep breaths throughout the day when things get hard, start and end each day with a positive thought or something I am thankful for, wear my jewelry reminders (Hoda’s forward ring and my Stella & Dot bracelet)
There we go! I hope when I see you here in the beginning of June I have 6 ”Yes, I did it”s! What are your goals for May? Have a great day full of sunshine and books!
Linking up with Tanya and the Hello Monday girls.

Love your goals as always! The one about not shopping right now hit home and it is so true!
You did a great job on your goals last month and set some good ones for this month too.
Great goals! Way to go for walking and finding the sunshine in April! That is a good idea to wear earrings/necklace everyday. I think I have been wearing the same basic post earrings for weeks! Have a wonderful week!
