With one goal completed, I've decided to revamp my ROW80 goals for the remainder of the Round. I've kept them pretty general still, since that seemed to work for the earlier part of the round. All of these goals are focused around the idea of making these activities a habit; something I just DO. And it seems that if I have a goal where I can just check off whether I did it or not (and not get mired down in the details) on a particular day, I end up being more successful. So here are my new goals:
Writing: Write every day. Even if it is just 50 words on my WiP, I will write every day. I check my email on the computer at least once a day, so knocking out some words every day shouldn't be too hard. I am trying to build good habits this round, and this is where I'm starting.
Reading: Read a minimum of one book every two weeks. I think this should be pretty easy since I love to read and have a ton in my TBR pile and on my Nook, but before I up it to one book a week I want to have a test run to see how things go.
Blogging/Social Media: Keep up with the Blog Me Maybe challenge for the month of May and then re-evaluate in June. I don't fret if I don't get post for BMM every day (it's why I love the challenge!). My latest post for this blogfest was Friday's post about Rick Springfield-yes that Rick Springfield! :)
Be Active: I want to hit this 5 days of the week. This is going to be really hard, but I am determined to do it. When I was in the thick of homework and work, I could barely get in my 3 workouts a week and was not sleeping well at all. But now, like with writing, I want to make working out a habit and since being active often helps me sleep better, it's a win-win!
I am off to start in on these goals with some yoga, then some reading. Wishing all the mothers out there a Happy and relaxing Mother's Day! I'll be heading to my sister's house in a few hours to let her and my mother sit back while my father, niece, nephew and I try to put together a cook out. Hopefully I don't blow up the grill!
