Hi there! I like to start the beginning of each month by setting fitness, health and wellness goals. These goals keep me on track for the upcoming month! What are your goals for this month? Share them with me via email or in the comments below and I’ll help you stick to them!
It’s hard to believe January has already come and gone! I’m not complaining though… With January behind us, we are one month closer to warm weather! (Sorry Winter, but I’m ready to leave you in the dust!)
January Goals Review
My first goal from January was to drink a gallon of water per day. While I didn’t drink a full gallon every single day, having the goal of drinking a full gallon pushed me to drink more water than I normally would. This helped keep me fuller longer between meals and helped clear up my skin!
My second goal was to workout 6 days per week. For the most part, I did pretty well with this! I started Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide workouts and have been sticking to them since the beginning of January.
My third goal was to eat 5-6 small meals per day, consisting of primarily fruits, veggies and protein. I had let my clean eating habits slide during the holidays, so it took awhile to get back on track. I’m back to 5-6 small meals per day and feeling great!
My next goal was to dedicate at least 2 hours per week to self-care activities. This goal is still something that I need to work on…
My last goal was to get at least 7 hours of sleep per night. Going to bed earlier has become much easier with Branden now working first shift! I have been going to bed earlier, getting more sleep and feeling more energized!
My goals for February
1.Stick to clean eating! Allow one cheat meal per week.
I feel so much better when I eat well and take care of my body. But, I’m human and I like to eat chocolate and pizza. After restricting a lot of food in my past, I’m working to find a more balanced approach. I want to stick to clean eating and allow myself one cheat meal per week. Every night I will also allow myself to have a small dessert- such as a square of dark chocolate.
2. 10,000 steps per day + daily workouts and rest day on Sunday.
During the day, my job requires me to sit at a desk. Keeping track of my activity and working to hit 10,000 steps is a challenge when working behind the desk! I am going to continue my BBG workouts
daily and keep Sunday as a rest day.
3. Read a new book.
I love, love, love to read! But I don’t make much time for it. This month I am going to read a new book and make time for reading.
4. Limit technology distraction.
Technology is my biggest distraction. I check my phone when I’m bored, when a commercial comes on, or just to keep my hands busy. I’m going to work on being more intentional about when I use my phone and how I spend time with the people in my life.
