Chicago has been raining for the past few days. And not just raining. Thunderstorms, flash floods, and lightning. I’m definitely counting on these April showers to bring May flowers. This Spring will bring a lot of “newness” for me. I am going to be moving back to California and along with this will be looking for a new place to live and a new job. For all this sporadic change, I think I am going to have to balance it with some good ol’ planned change. Below are 3 of my golas for Spring this season.
1. Clean out my closet.
If only our closets looked like that they would be SO easy to keep organized, right? I have realized that I have a gross amount of clothing and accessories that I rarely wear. Part of this is due to Chicago winter forcing me into leggings, sweatshirts, and boots all season. But some other things I just know I will never wear again. This Spring I want to donate items that I don’t use any more. Plus, it will make for a much lighter and affordable move back to California! [image via].
2. Start running again.
In January one of my New Years Resolutions was a challenge called “A Mile A Day.” It is just what it sounds, run a mile a day, no matter what your other work out is. I actually loved it. I was never really a runner before, but I found that one mile really does make a difference and builds stamina and muscle. I did the challenge for about a month and a half. And then my routine was thrown off. After a business trip to Dallas one week, it was hard to get back in the swing of things. With an erratic schedule like mine fitting this in every day can be tough, but I would like to start again; maybe with a break 1 or 2 days a week. Oh, and I think the above new Nike Free Run 3 Sneakers would be oh so encouraging. [image via].
3. Add more superfoods to my diet.
I must admit, I have been pretty great this year at cooking at home and not eating out. I have added some new things to my diet for the better including “green juices,” chia seeds, and more green tea. It is so important to take care of your body and make sure you are getting all the right nutrients to keep it functioning and thriving. This Spring I want to add even more raw, “superfoods” to my every day diet. I suggest this link for a list of 50 superfoods and why they are so good for you. [image via].
These are only 3. I want to come up with at least 2 more, achievable goals for the season. What are your Spring goals?
