I can’t believe we are in the 2nd quarter of 2023. I did set some goals for myself to accomplish this year but for this 2nd quarter, I want to focus on two of them heavily. I feel I started on them but fell off big time and I really need to get back on track. I had a little wake up call with both of these goals and it is time to really focus on them.
First thing is taking better care of myself. I haven’t stepped on the scale in a while and when I did one day last week, realized that I put on 10 pounds. Ummm….what????
I had to use that gif lol but I was shocked. Before I even stepped on the scale I noticed that some of my jeans were fitting a little snug and my mid section was bigger as well. I haven’t been eating the best and so healthy lately. I also haven’t been working out as much as I should be. I’m ashamed to say the last time I actually did workout. My metabolism isn’t what it used to be and I want to feel better when I look in mirror and also when I put on clothes. I’m actually not starting to like the way I look in clothes and want to cover up those parts I don’t like. I also don’t want people to start assuming I’m pregnant because of how my stomach looks.
I want to start eating better, being more active and just doing better overall. I know I’m not ready to join a gym again but I just need to get myself in the basement and start. Even it is starts with stretching or yoga or taking walks now since it is nice and going from there.
Second, I want to focus on my financial goal. I have had a love/hate relationship with money for way too long and I just want out of this toxic spiral I’m in with my money. I want to do so much better and save more and stop over spending and just budget better. It is hard when unexpected things come up or living paycheck to paycheck…it is starting to become really annoying. I’m just tired of countdown until the next paycheck only for it to be gone by the weekend. I’m so tired of that. I’ve tried creating budgets and savings goals but never implement them. I think it is time and long overdue to break this cycle I have. It is just going to take some time figuring out my expenses against how much I’m bringing in and how to best save. Seems super easy but it is not but I’m determined to really get this together.
I got this. I know I can focus on getting those two things together during this second quarter. Of course I will have an update at the end of this quarter. How are you making out so far if you set goals? Let’s chat!
