We’re a little over halfway through the month of May. That means that there is less than half a month until it’s June, which is the middle of the year. Frightening.
Anyhow, I figured now would be a grand time to check in on my May goals and challenges.
I made it a goal to go the gym 25 days this month. I’ve been doing a pretty good job of this. I didn’t go either day this weekend, but that was kind of unavoidable. There just wasn’t time, and the gym’s hours are reduced over the weekend.
So far this month, I’ve gone to the gym 12 days. I can still easily meet my goal as long as I only take two more days off from going. I think I can do it!
I also joined Janetha’s Wakeup Call Challenge this month. I’m doing well with that also. I am currently sitting at 88 minutes of morning plyos completed. I have missed several days, but I’ve been pretty consistent with it.
Since I’ve been kicking ass and taking names with my current goals, I’ve decided to implement one more for the second half of the month.
It’s an easy one. I want to spend more time here:
And less time here:
Since I have to be up between 5:30 and 6 every morning, I ideally try to be in bed between 9 and 10 at night. Lately, however, I haven’t been turning in nearly as early as I should be. I blame all the season finales on TV right now, but I digress.
The lack of sleep is really starting to get to me. I’ve been completely devoid of energy during the day and . I usually get a burst right before bed, which is an endlessly frustrating characteristic of insomnia.
I’ve got to start making a solid effort at getting more sleep, so the goal is to be in bed by 9:30 every week night for the rest of the month.
In theory, this shouldn’t be too difficult, but for a natural-born night owl such as myself it will be easier said than done I’m afraid.
We’ll see how it goes.
Did you set any goals for yourself this month? How are they going?
Are you a night owl or morning person?
