|A great blog, Brip Blap, tagged me in order to get me to commit to something in public. The idea is pretty simple; Brip Blap is asking that I reveal a personal goal and that I commit on my blog what I will actually do in order to achieve my goal. As I just came from my business trip, I thought it would be a good idea to start writing on my blog (all post from last week were time stamped to be shown along the week) with some positive thinking.|
|Do having a baby and going on a business trip have something in common? At first glance, you might say that I am still lagging from my last flight. However, I was able to find something that binds both events; in both situation, I was could not find the time (and the will!) to work out. In addition to that, I ate a lot of bad stuff during both periods. Having a baby is dragging down your energy (and sleep!) level. Therefore, you are more inclined to eat out or order a pizza!
In regards to my routine during my business trip; it was pretty simple : Wake up with coffees full of sugar to make sure I am primed for my presentation. Do not eat much during the day because you want to get as much as exposure as possible. Then, you finish with a big fat meal (sometimes they are fancy on top of that!) with a lot of wine and beers to relax. I must confess that having alcohol after a hard day of PR is more than relaxing; it is opening the door to heaven!
So without anymore futile details, I will commit myself to work-out at least three times a week and reduce my monthly budget for eating out. Whoa, that sounds like too much already! Honestly, before we had Amy, I was working-out two to three times a week. However, I have never committed to reduce the junk food in my eating habits. I think that both resolutions will help me out to be fit and also to keep my budget fit.
By reducing my monthly budget for eating out by $25, I am cutting off a least one outside lunch per month. That means less French fries in my body and more money in my wallet! It should help me to get to my $1,500 project. In order to achieve this part of my commitment, I will also cut down on my morning coffee and take it at home instead of giving my money away to Starbucks! Even thought I hate to cut down on my life style to save more money, I believe that my body health is more important than my financial health. Dropping off burgers, pizza and our World Famous Poutine (you have to live in Quebec to know what a poutine is but oh God! it is damn good!) will certainly do some good for my belly.
Believe it or not, I strongly think that keeping my morning appointment with my treadmill will help me to improve my energy and my level of concentration while working. The more energy you spend lifting weight, the more it gives you back during your day. I know it does not make much sense but this is the way it works! I hope that I stick to my commitment and I will surely post updates on those commitments (even if I fail) in a few months. I would also like to tag a few bloggers to make such commitments :
