Have we talked goals for the month? I think not. In my opinion, it’s good to keep a list of things to achieve in a set period of time. I like to accomplish these things within the month because it’s a good time frame for me. It holds me accountable and motivates me. So, let’s get down to it, shall we?
1. Get into mermaid pose! I’ve become very intrigued by the whole yogi lifestyle and I fell that much more in love with it once I found out there was a pose named after my people, you know, because I’m a mermaid and all. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get into this pose by the end of the month, but I hope to be able to at least put my foot in the proper place near my elbow. I’ve tried to do it and for me, touching my hands together is the most difficult. This is what it looks like.
2. Do a split! Continuing with yoga poses, I’d like to be able to do a split. Any kind. My inguinal ligaments are my least flexible. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was born with half the length of normal tendons/ligaments in that area. Maybe it’s the muscles…who knows! Either way, I struggle with a lot of the poses that require a full separation. It’s sad, but I’m working on it! I’m serious. I even got these fun tools to help me. A sweet looking professional strap and blocks!
3. Find a job! This isn’t fitness-related, but it’s definitely necessary. I’m at a point in my schooling where I can handle a job and maintain good grades. I only have 3 more pre-reqs until I can apply to a nutrition program. I’m trying not to be tooooo picky about what kind of job, but there are absolutely things I won’t do lol.
4. Make time for fun! After all, I am on summer break. I should be having fun and laughing and being adventurous. I guess it’s just hard when my husband is gone, which feels like all the time, and when I hardly know anybody out here. I need to just do it. I’ve been exploring a bit here and there, but I get lonely. However, the only way to make friends is to meet people, right? Tis why I made this a goal 🙂
