Any goals for May?

I did not realize it was the beginning of a new month today! I can't start off the month complaining about the construction in the apartment. About how one day we only had cold water, the next we only had hot water, and one day we didn't even have a working toilet! I also won't complain about the stains on my carpet from people in and out, or the sawdust covering my kitchen and dishes. Nope, won't complain a bit! Instead, let's talk about our goals for May. I want to go ahead and make this a great month! So this month I will:
1. Participate in a fitness bootcamp. It starts Monday on and I think it'll be good for me. I do my monthly weigh in today and I honestly don't think I've lost any weight these past 2 months despite all the exercise I've been doing. I do see a lovely set of abs forming, so I guess I won't count it a loss.
2. Eat more vegetables. I always get my fruit on, but I leave veggies out too often. I need to repeat to myself, salads are your friend! Last night we had "A Trio of Salads" as our theme for dinner. We had regular old salad with broccoli, cucumbers, and carrots. We also had Rotini with Pesto, I didn't like it, I've never had pesto before so I don't know if I made it wrong, or if it really tastes like that, either way, I didn't care for it. For dessert we had fruit salad with blackberries, strawberries, mango, and pineapple. It was delicious!
3. Brighten a day, everyday! Y'all I love giving compliments. Now, I don't lie to someone just for the sake of saying something nice, but I do need to tell folks when I like something. The other day in Baja Fresh this chick had on a cute skirt and I told her so, you could tell it made her feel a little better :) So everyday I will make sure to try to brighten somebody's day. I'm going to try and keep track because I think it will be fun.
4. Give something away at least once a week. On my computer monitor at work I have this posted, "If you continually give, you will continually have." That was the best fortune ever in a fortune cookie, and I believe it. I'll keep track of these too. Not necessarily to brag about it, but I think it'll be interesting to see what I come up with. I already plan to give my coworker a pair of earrings, my workout buddy and I need resistance bands for our next month workout, so I bought each of us some yesterday, and there are some homeless people by my gas station that I want to cook a meal for :) and a pile of clothes for goodwill.
5. Be consistent with my prayer time/bible study. My morning Bible study emails aren't really appealing to me anymore. I'm working through a joy book that runs parallel with the book of Philippians that I like. My mother-in-law has a book by Myles Monroe (that man is tha bomb!) on prayer. I plan to borrow it with or without her consent. We are believing God for a lot of things *coughlaptopcoughnewcarcoughloanspaidoffcoughlasik*, and I need to remember that I have to have the faith, and the works to back it up.
It's a dreary day today. Since I didn't carry my bright yellow purse to bring a smile, I decided to bounce while I walk. 3 people in the office just joined me because I looked so happy :) Try it! Bounce while you walk, it'll make you smile!
