So with the approach of summer I thought this would be a good time to set some goals for this summer. Setting goals is really important for me and is something I take really seriously. I read an article once about writing down your goals and keeping accountability. Since Summer is a time that in general isn't too busy it's a really good time to set goals and complete them.
1. Complete some of my "30 before 30" goals
More specifically, the go to Boston and Canada ones! I'll be in upstate NY this summer so I'll be pretty close to each. I really want to go to Boston for the TFiOS premier because one of my friends is from Rhode Island and I want to meet up with her to see it. I really wanted to do Canada last year because I wasn't 21 yet so I would be able to drink there. Oh well. It'll still be fun and then I can use my passport again!
2. Lose 20 lbs
When it comes to weight loss I'm normally not a big fan of keeping track of numbers. I think that what is more important is feeling good and liking the way you look and what your body can do when you are in good shape and live a happy life style. That being said, giving myself a concrete number to work towards will keep me motivated.
3. Watch less Netflix
Last summer I spent most of my time watching Netflix which now looking back was such a waste. This summer I want to concentrate on doing more fun things and taking advantage of whats going on in town.
4. Drink less soda / no soda
I am like fully addicted to diet coke. I always here mixed things about diet sodas. Some people say that as long as it's diet its ok because it's all about calories. And some people say that diet sodas are worse because of all the artificial sugars and stuff. I don't know which side to believe (because I heard diet soda was ok from a doctor and have only heard it's bad from news and magazine articles) but I figure there is nothing wrong with not drinking soda and drinking more water instead.
What are some of your summer goals? xoxo Natalie
