We interrupt this time-tracking challenge week because…it’s Tuesday! Which means it’s time for another podcast discussion thread. I’m late posting this one because our school opening was delayed for 2 hours, which meant there were people underfoot and such, and I shifted the day around some.
Anyway, this week’s episode was about our goals for 2017 and 2018. What worked? What didn’t? What’s in store for the next year? How do we go about setting goals? We discussed some of this in our episode with Gretchen Rubin (which you should listen to if you haven’t!) but hey, we like our goals. So why not two podcasts on the topic?
I’d love to hear people’s goals, but I think it also might be a fruitful discussion topic to talk about what didn’t work in 2017. I often set intentions to do strength work…and then I don’t. I kind of want to for 2018 but my new kettle ball and resistance band (which Santa brought me!) are just sitting in my office. They are in plain sight. And they are unused. Why is this? I know it’s important — especially as I get older — to do strength training. Also, it would probably make me a better runner. But I don’t do it. Maybe I need to figure out a good routine and a good cue. Or something I’d really enjoy doing. I welcome suggestions.
Sarah noted that she wanted to meditate in 2017. Then she got pregnant and very very nauseated. And the only thing she could think of in her meditation time was how sick she felt. So that was that. She’s getting back into it in 2018.
What didn’t work for you in 2017?
