Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why
Well, the month of June is almost over, and we're on to a new month, so I'll set some goals for the month of July.
The number one goal is to start getting stronger and find my way back to the gym. After all the issues with my shingles and nerve damage that turned out to not be nerve damage (more on that to come), it's been a rough road. I am off the medication that turned out to be doing more harm than good, so I can now start to see progress. My goal, which the neurologist thought was extremely possible, is to be walking on the treadmill for 15 minutes three times a week by the end of the month. It doesn't sound like much, but it actually is considering I've been sitting on my couch since March 24th doing no exercise at all.
The second goal I have is to get the EEG scheduled and stay calm until my next neurology appointment on August 1st.
Finally, I want to get the girls ready to go back to school. I want to start preparing them for a more regular bedtime in the last week of July since school starts August 10th. I also need to get Amber some more pants or shorts, and maybe Andrea could use a few pair, too.
All of these goals are in preparation for our lives to get back to normal. It has been a LONG road with this shingles and recovery, but we are finally on the way to a routine again.
