Week 2 2019: Laying the Foundations of the Year

Coming to the end of Week 2 feels like an achievement, I’ve made progress on all my goals this week.

I feel like it’s the time to explain some of my goals in greater details.

Lose 2 stone in weight by July

This one’s really simple to explain. I want to be healthier, both physically and mentally. I need to have a hard goal/target to monitor this. Loosing 2 stone by July is roughly 1lb per week. Which doesn’t seem like much, but when I add up all the weeks until my target date, that’s when it will make a big difference.

Gym workouts at least 3 times a week

Another simple one, that relates to my first goal. Go to the gym and work out AT LEAST 3 times per week, Monday – Sunday. Which is a big improvement on last year, which was once every 4 months.

Be honest with my feelings to myself and others

I’m guilty of being a “yes man”, and doing things others wanted. This year I want to be honest and give myself and others a chance to put our cases forward for any given activity and scenario.

Don’t worry about what I can’t control

I often overthink things which triggers my anxiety and I can be held back by it. This year I’m trying not to let the little bitty stuff get me down and hold me back.

Instead of “I know”, say “you’re right”

Be more positive. I think I got this as a LPT on readit years ago. If someone tells or shows your something that you are already aware of, say “you’re right” it conveys the same meaning and you don’t make the other person feel like they have wasted their time or effort.

Instead of “seen it”, say “thank you”

As as above really.

This Week’s Progress

Weight-loss – I’ve lost 3lb. 25 to go.

Gym attendance – I’ve been 6 times, I’m finding really early in the morning is working great for me. That’s 2 weeks on the bounce that I’ve been 6 times in 7 days.

PMA – all going strong at the moment.
