Mid-year Resolution Check-in

Six months and a couple days later from a few unkept promises. A mid-year check-in to reevaluate is always a good idea. Every year I am learning more about myself and figuring out the difference between who I have been conditioned to be and who I really am.

Mid-year Resolution Check-In:

  1. Hit all Apple Watch goals: Can proudly say, all 6-months worth of goals were hit and increased the move goal from 500 calories a day to 720. Matter of fact it was surpassed. Hitting about 1000 calories a day. Started a new hobby of running, because it is the most efficient way to burn calories and read it was great for women over 40. Figured a head start couldn’t hurt, since 40 in less than 6 months away. OMG!… Also looking forward to getting into other fitness techniques and routines.
  2. Go braless: Much harder than expected to be. For the most part, it has been accomplished. Only wore a bra once because of the voices in my head said people are judging me. LOL. And ironically, it felt weirder wearing the bra after going for 5 months without one. Decided if people notice, they are looking to hard. Do you know how many man boobs are out here all free? Plus it is nice being supported, the sister-in-law is the President and the wife is the VP of the braless club. 🙂
  3. Post twice a week. Big fail. Decided to start writing this blog a few years ago, because dyslexia is a “B” and kind of struggle a little with expressing my feelings in a more finesse way. Known to hurt people’s feeling with being too direct. Also, part-time work and school has taken my focus off casual writing. It’s hard enough writing 5-10 page papers for an MBA. Thinking after graduation, writing will more of a priority and find a focus.
  4. Live $0 budget: Doing pretty good, actually in this area. It took 3 months to find apps that were helpful and to fix our budget to allow responsible traveling. Everydollar app tracks where your money goes and gives a hard number to stick by when you are dining out and traveling. Also found a debt app that encourages you to pay our house off early to save $$$ that can be used for other assets.
  5. No more diets: You damn right. It is empowering to not be on any fad diets. Eating when and what you want to. This releases you from the shackles of indulgence. You won’t feel like this is your only opportunity to have XYZ, so you gorge on the whole pint of ice cream. Listening to your body is the way to go.

Take a little time and see where you are in your New Years Resolution. Get your focus back and readjust where you see fit. Keep growing in 2019.
