You poor thing...no wonder you are tired all the time :-( I hope you are able to accomplish that mini-goal asap! Your goals sound great and achievable, which is important. I don't know about the getting dressed one, though...sometimes pjs/comfy clothes are just perfect for spending the day at home! Especially a cold early winter day like today :-) Courtney You need more sleep! You poor thing…no wonder you are tired all the time :-( I hope you are able to accomplish that mini-goal asap!

In the dead of winter it will be such a tropical treat. I am pretty obsessive about to do lists. But I have been having problems being motivated to do much activism type stuff lately. One thing that helps me out of my rut is being accountable to other people and asking for support. We should go swimming at the Y together! In the dead of winter it will be such a tropical treat.

I'm trying to include more exercise too. I think I might also steal some of your goals. I like the idea of mini goals, I guess it’s really easier to accomplish them and move on from there.

I also do not get enough sleep, and this is a big goal for me. And meal plans - yes! I tend to take a very impulsive and random approach to making meals each week, and would like to be a bit more calculated in that department. The only think I am calculated about are my daily breakfast green smoothies, actually, which is funny. the night before, I gather all the ingredients I want to include on the top shelf of my fridge or put them on the counter. I try to do the same thing for whatever I'm taking for lunch the next day. I think the most important thing about setting goals is not totally beating yourself up on the days when you fall off the wagon. I find that the more I beat myself up about NOT doing what I'm trying to, I just end up feeling bad - not motivated to do better :) Acknowledging room for improvement is one thing, but totally getting down on yourself is another. Negative self talk will never help anything, so keep it positive, and know that tomorrow is another opportunity to hold yourself accountable for creating the life you want. Trust me, I'll be trying hard to do this too!!! Great goals, A-K. I also do not get enough sleep, and this is a big goal for me. And meal plans – yes!

Actually, I am in pajamas right now too, despite the fact that I woke up at 6AM ( my accountancy homework is to blame. It NEVER ends T_T); I have not did a green smoothie for myself for one month; I sleep 4 or 5 hours and I never plan my meals (which means that when I have no time or exams I subsist on cookies, breakfast cereals and dark chocolate>.<). At least I drink enough water, he he. Is not easy to get back on track, but sometimes achieving one of the goals inspires you to go on. For example, when I oblige myself to go running, even if I don't have time (because I never had it, and I would never go running otherwise) I feel good. If I feel good, I don't crave sweets or food I know I shouldn't eat. If I follow a balanced diet and exercise, I feel more energetic and exercise more. You just need a little push :) Setting small goals is a great idea =)

It's really nice, as long as you don't need anything in particular. But there always seem to be lots of bananas, which means practically half my green smoothies are free!
