Goooooooooaals for August

July Goals
I did okay. I haven't been putting forth major effort, so I can't really get mad when I don't reach all of my goals. More effort= more goals accomplished.

Things I did do:
I RAN! I actually ran 3 times. I've lost a lot of my endurance and was super embarrassed about it. I did get the awesome "I'm so hot" feeling afterward emoticon (pretty much consists of "my legs look awesome" or "oh yeah, look at those abs" etc)
I started my Groupon gym membership, did a Pinterest project (3 actually!), and have been working on eat less frequently

Things I need to work on:
Meal planning. I'm full of excuses here. Jimi has been working a ton, so it's hard for me to get motivated to prepare meals when I'm the only one eating them.
Processed foods. I did okay, but I really want to work on eating less processed foods.
Morning exercise: I did really well for the first 2 weeks of July then didn't do anything the last 2 weeks. Definitely want to get back into the habit!

August goals:
emoticon Meal Plan. Just do it! Do more batch cooking on Sundays, make extra salads so they're ready as a side for dinner etc. Just do it!
emoticon Run 1x/week. It's not a lot, but it's something I can commit to.
emoticon Morning workouts. 4x/week. 10-20 minutes.
emoticon Work on cutting out a few processed "go-to" foods (strawberry yogurt, tortillas, pasta sauce, pasta)
emoticon 1,000 fitness minutes. I used to consistently get way over 1,000 and I haven't since like March...
emoticon Do 1 HIIT workout per week. I seriously see the most results with these short workouts added in.

Things coming up in August:
Mom's 50th birthday
Niece and nephew's birthday party (aka- food and drinks for us adults)
Travel for work at some point to NJ (aka- diner capital of the world)
Beach over Labor Day weekend

Also, I've decided the make a goal to do a split before then end of the year. I've cut the distance to the ground in half since I've started doing yoga (only with my right leg forward, but one split variation is fine)

    Thumbs up for settling goals! It's the first step towards accomplishing them!

Stay focused and keep remembering what you want. Even have little post-it papers in strategic places to remind you of your effort (I have 1 post-it on the fridge to remind me to drink water).

    Thanks for the support! I also added in to do 1 HIIT workout per week. I really want to get back into the groove I was in last summer.

    Love the flexibility goal! I'm with you on the lack of effort, lack of results boat for July. August is going to be our month lol.

    Yay for new revised goals! I definitely hear you on cutting out the "go-to" foods. Trying to find substitutes for those isn't always easy. I love that you already have those special occasions already figured out; now you can start planning ahead for them! Keep up the awesome work :)
