New Week- New Goals!

Oh, Mondays… not exactly one’s favorite day of the week. But I’m here to redeem the day and to help eliminate those infamous ‘Monday Blues’. Today’s a new day, a new week, a fresh start, so why not make yourself some new goals? These are just some of MY short term goals for the week ahead. I’m ALL about balance and baby steps, so these aren’t anything crazy… They’re totally manageable and still slightly challenging. 

  1. Drink less coffee. Okay guys, real life… I’m slightly addicted to coffee. It’s my crutch! I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, I eat well everyday, and I try to live a healthy, balanced life- but somehow, the amount of coffee I drink every morning has been slowly and steadily increasing. I actually feel so dependent on caffeine. And then I ‘crash’ in the afternoons. So my goal this week is to simply cut back. I’m DEFINITELY not planning to cut out coffee, but I’d like to drink a bit less.
  2. Workout 5x this week. Since I started drinking more coffee, I’ve noticed that I haven’t been sleeping as well. And while I definitely plan to reduce my coffee consumption, last week (when I was waking up waaay too early) I actually started going to the gym for an early morning workout. I just love starting my day this way and I plan to make sure I do it 5 times. 
  3. Finish history book/ paper. Well,this may not apply to everyone, but I am a student–I need to prioritize my school work! I have a big paper to work on for my German history class. While it’s not due until the end of the month, I’m looking forward to getting it out of the way. 
  4. Spend less money. Lately I’ve been spending money without even thinking about it. With tax day right around the corner, it’s about to get real! (Definitely didn’t realize I’d have to pay as much as I do in taxes.) So, in light of that, I’m planning to cut way back on my spending this week. 

How about you? What are your goals for this week?!

    Love your philosophy of starting the week off with new goals! Mine are: get at least 8 hours of sleep each night this week and like you, work on a big assignment due in a couple of weeks so I don’t save it till the least minute!

    I’m big on goal setting too! As far as your coffee goal, what about trying to replace some of your coffee drinking with tea? It still has caffeine but not as much, so it may be a good way to reduce your caffeine without going cold turkey or getting caffeine withdrawals. Plus it’s full of antioxidants!

      Greatttt idea Nicole! It’s been about 10 days since my coffee goal and I’m already feeling so much better!! Having tea and decaf helps a lot! Plus, I still drink coffee, but SO much less!! Baby steps, right??

    I LOVE weekly goals because they’re so much less overwhelming. 🙂 Some of my goals for next week would be: 1) Be consistent with taking care of my body and mental health. 2) Be more joyful when others ask me to do things. and most of all want to give glory to God, glorify Jesus more than me in everything, only by HIS strength!

    Weekly goals are so much fun! My goals for this week were to hit 10,000 steps on my FitBit on at least four days, do yoga before bed to help me relax, and finish a book I started reading last week. 🙂
