Goals Update 2016 #7–Clare

Good news!  The wagon was waiting around the corner… so I caught up!  Ok, I did better this week.  I’m not back at where I was, but considering Easter candy, especially Cadbury Mini Eggs arrived in stores this week… I’m doing pretty well.

Finance:

I’ve only bought one bag of mini eggs–even though it was the gigando bag.  My vacation savings is still on track.. I’m saving $30 a week for vacation.  I keep meaning to start up my spending notebook… but I just forget when I purchase something–I NEED to restart. It made me so much more conscious of my spending!

Fitness:

I’m doing Cycle for Survival–and trying to raise money and awareness for rare cancer research, so please go visit my fundraising page!!!  It’s in two weeks! 

Monday I literally ran around town a lot for work…well, I literally WALKED–but it made me realize that I like doing a little (20ish minutes) of non-sweaty, first thing in the morning, exercise. Here’s the thing. I LIKE exercise. I HATE getting sweaty and gross. The way my brain works is for a workout at the gym, I have to have travel time (1ish hour round trip), exercise time (45 min/hr), and shower/cleanup time (30-45 min). That’s a LOT of time for me to set aside. BUT–if I can figure out something that makes me feel good that isn’t a huge time commitment…that is my exercise. 

So, the next day I set my alarm to walk in the park for 20 min…but I woke up and it was 20 degrees…I ended up doing 5 Sun Salutations. 

AND I’ve done 5 Sun Saluations every morning this week–well 6 out of 7.  But the day I didn’t I swam!!!  I miss swimming!

I did more with the other goals…but I’ll update you next week on those!
