Welcome to May!!!
I cannot believe that May have already here! I feel like the year is just flying by!! Anyone else feel this way?
To tell you the truth April was not a very stellar month in terms of my goals and that’s OK!
Life happened and sometimes goals just don’t work out the way we plane! I am so grateful that I have learned to give myself GRACE when this happens, and not beat myself up about it.
So for May I am taking things down a notch. I am going to keep it simple for the month of May! I know this month is going to be pretty full with work, teaching, my church and other life events and possibly some travel. I know it is also going to be hard at times as this will be 1 year since my grandmother passed away. My memories about her have been popping up already from the last conversations we had and it hits me deep in my soul.
I still want to have some goals in mind for the month, but I am just focusing on a few!
Three simple goals for this month.
Balance between work and rest– I have been teaching more classes (which has been good and fun), but I also need to keep up with my rest. So focusing on more rest on the days I teach multiple times and while I rest, keep using my foam roller, my toe stretchers, my foot bath and my muscle massager. I may even sneak in 2 real massages this month with my therapist. My body has been needing a little extra love with the additional classes I am teaching and taking.
Hydration and nutrition– For all the water I drink, I still struggle to stay hydrated! I know teaching in a hot and humid climate doesn’t help things very much either. I bought a new water bottle from one of my fav companies because I have found I do better when I use a bottle with a straw! My new Takeya bottle is GORGEOUS and with the straw I have been doing better with reaching my goals
For my nutrition this month I am keeping things really simple as well. I don’t have as much time to really prep like I have in the past, and I also really don’t want to spend a ton of time cooking. I have been eating less and less meat and I am feeling better with out so much. I am not going 100% vegetarian or vegan just yet, but playing around with things to see what helps me the best! I will also be working with a nutrition coach to make sure I am getting enough nutrients to keep me fueled properly!
Education – I ordered a bunch of books in March and April and I have only listened to one of them! So I will be diving back into more reading and deeper studies on certain topics that are becoming more intriguing to me! I will also be adding to some book club discussions and learning from others who are reading similar books!
What is one goal you have for May?
