August 2013 Goals

Thursday, August 01, 2013

I was thinking about this monthly goal blog, and went back to check my August goals for other years....I discovered that on August 14, I will have been a Spark member for 3 years!

The very fi rst blog, which I wrote on the 15th, talked about the fact that I made sure that I had protein with my breakfast - that hasn't changed, and the increase in freggies - which was certainly necessary, and that I walked 1/2 mile.

A year later, I blogged about my walking, which started at 10 minutes at a time [this was to walk down to the corner and back] increasing to 20 minutes, then 30, then 45 because of an exercise challenge on an RV Enthusiasts challenge that I was in.

Then, during my second year - August 2012 - things were not so good in my life and it took me a while to get my bearings - so I didn't get a blog done, but that's okay.

So, now that I am about to start my third Spark year, what are my August goals? Well, my June and July goals have served me very I will use them again! #1) I will do 1500 minutes of fitness and #2) I will have fun doing that fitness.

My Spark friends will know that I enjoy walking, so I have fun doing that. I also enjoy changing it up, and have learned to like resistance bands. I am changing it up some more this week using an elliptical trainer and going to water aerobics. I went to Zumba a few times this summer; I have yet to buy a DVD and my schedule won't work with the local classes. I just got in on the last of the Cupid Shuffle at a line dancing class - that was fun!

So...1500 or more fitness minutes, and have fun doing them...those are my August 2013 Spark goals.

    Have Fun Doing Fitness! NOW that's my kinda goal too!! emoticon

    If we don't have *fun* doing our fitness we will quit! So NOT having fun is a non starter!

    YOU are so right Tammy! emoticon

    Getting those goals out in front of you are so important !!
    One new thing I tried recently was Kettle Bells. I picked one up at WalMart. If you get a chance, take a look and see if it might be something fun to throw into the mix :-)
