Weekly Wishes #1 - Walk/Jog Every Day



I was really excited when I discovered Weekly Wishes over at The Nectar Collective!
 
It's about working towards your goals, one small step at a time, by making weekly goals that are easy to stick to. It's somewhat similar to my post 5 Steps to Simplify Your Goals, which was about taking your huge goals and breaking them down into smaller, more achievable goals to start you off. However, by only committing to one goal for 7 full days instead of a lifetime, it's a little less intimidating and a lot easier to accomplish.
 
For my very first Weekly Wish: Walk/jog every day for at least half an hour.
 
The past couple of years have been stressful and with stress came laziness, binge eating and weight gain! Being overweight is fine by me, but being unhealthy and out of shape isn't. I feel sluggish, tired and to be honest - ugly. And this lifestyle isn't any good for anyone.
 
Knowing I can't just jump back in to my old workout routine, I have to take it slow. And forcing myself to get outside and walk/jog would be a great start!
 
I'm registered to begin college this September. I want to begin school feeling great physically, emotionally and spiritually (whatever that means). Incorporating a regular exercise routine into my daily life would be a great way to start!

Thanks,

  1. Hey Cole! This is a great goal and you can totally do it! I think I might even join you. I need to get outside more! By the way, I struggle with binge eating too. It's tough to overcome but we will... one step at a time. :)

  2. I've been walking every day and it's had so many benefits for me - I always get the best ideas for writing. I did my first Weekly Wishes this week too. Love seeing what everyone else is prioritizing. It's so motivating.

    1. I used to walk/jog every day before. I have no idea how I slipped out of that habit, but you're right - there are so many benefits! And I used to get my best ideas for writing from walking, too!

      Weekly Wishes is very inspiring, I love being a part of this :)

  5. Such a great goal! Since summer hit, I've had no time for working out. I'm sure I'll be following in your footsteps and easing back into a routine once I have the time again. Good luck getting out this week, you can do it!

    1. Thanks! It's been a good week. I have been getting out almost every day :)

      It can be hard to work out when you haven't much free time. Hope you have more time soon :)
