But onto my goals....
Facial care and hair care. These are always on my top 5 goals for the month, but it only lasts 2 days before i give up.... I am like people who want to lose weight fast, they want results within two days otherwise it isnt worth it. I want my skin to show results within two days and my hair to be soft and glowing and always straight.... that is not the case. And then i give up and realise that i workout so often and just sit and study mostly all day so it doesnt matter if i wear baggy clothes and my hair in a bun. But its not so much about appearance, but that nice hair and skin just makes you glow and feel better! For now i will stick to my "basic products" but eventually invest in some better!
Go for runs, walks or do outside training. I love the gym so much so even in summer i choose to go to the gym, and that is no problem for me. But fresh air is important, and sure i walk to the gym and get some cardio and fresh air that way... but going for walks or runs is therapeutic and whenever i do workouts outside i realise how much i love it.... but its always hard to find that balance of wanting to run, walk, go to the gym and do workouts outside and fit it all into one week when i want to do all 4 things everyday.... But also i get stuck into routine. I do need to change my workout routine, challenge myself and do different things and now is the perfect time to do some outside workouts.... just waiting for the sun so i can start wearing shorts!
Less caffeine, more sleep. My caffeine intake varies alot... somedays its one cup of coffee (i.e around 200mg), otherdays i can be up around 1g of caffeine or more.... No its not healthy or recommended. And i have a high tolerance for caffeine. But as i feel alot more tired and allow myself to take naps as well as it being brighter i feel less need to drink coffee and more crave actual food for energy. Now when i want coffee (and i know i have already have maybe 1 or 2 cups) then in stead i fry some eggs or eat some raisins (or both!) and drink some green tea and that works for energy as well. And with sleep, well it varies... somedays i go to bed at 9pm and wake up at 5am, othertimes i go to sleep at 1am and wake up at 6am... but it might be good for me to work on trying to go to bed at a similar time as i am now making sure i wake up aroun 5-7am each morning so that is a regular thing and gets my body somewhat in balance!
Apply for jobs. At the moment i am so excited to apply for jobs, at first i thought i would just apply to food stores, but then i realised that i should and could apply to training stores so that is what i am going to do as well. I could try to work at a gym but i dont really feel like it... maybe the gym i workout at, but everyone who works there needs to be a qualified instructor and hold classes or be a PT, and i am neither so i dont have the qualifications to work there. But once i am in Stockholm i am going to print out my CV, write a few different personal letters for the differet stores and then go to the stores and apply for work... and hope that i get a job somewhere!!
Save up money and be economical. This month it is all about choosing the cheapest products and not so much buying "but it was a rough day, i need x, y and z food", haha. I dont buy myself clothes or anything unnecessary, but i am very good at buying myself different food which maybe doesnt fit my budget. So need to stop doing that this month. However i am very economical and know how to budget so i am not so worried, however at the end of May and during June and July the bills i going to start piling high as i have hopsital visits that cost me around €150 as well as having to pay the last month of my rent, new gym card membership, phone bills and if there is anything left that will go to actually being able to do something in summer. So this month i need to save. save. save.
These are just a few of my goals for May, and i am excited for the new month which will hopefully bring sunny weather!!! :)
Do you have any goals for the new month? :)
