Goals: June in Review; July Goals Set

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Looking back over the last month, I'm not too pleased with my ability to carry out my goals.

For my exercise, I did not walk everyday, missing 5 consecutive days, one time. My S.T. was erratic and spotty at best.

However, for my nutrition, I did try to log my food and stay within my range most days out of the weeks, drank at least 6+ cups of water daily, and ate a good amount of freggies everyday!!!

For my weigh-ins, I lost 9 lbs over the month and I am so happy with that. I can thank my South Beach Diet for that one!!! And I also want to thank all my spark friends who motivated me on and my teams who kept after me with encouragements, challenges and games!!!

Now for my July goals: I will be keeping it simple, with a few minor changes from My June Goals.

July 2013 GOALS:
1: Fitness
a.) Walk 30+minutes daily
b.) Strength Train; 3 days a week for 10 minutes a session.
c.) Complete 1000 fitness minutes for the month.

2: Nutrition
a.) Track all meals and snacks 3-4 days a week.
b.) Stay within my calorie range.
c.) Once a week, plan weekly menu.
d.) Drink 9-12 cups of water daily.
e.) Eat 5+ Freggies daily

3: Weigh-Ins
a.) Weigh once a week.
b.) Loose 2+ lbs a week for a total loss of 8-10 lbs for the month.

4: Motivation
a.) Stay connected with my Spark Friends and Spark Teams through status updates, spark pages, and team chat threads.

5: My Rest:
a.) Be in bed by Midnight. to get a minimum of 7 hrs sleep nightly.

10 points that will keep me focused and on target with my goals this month.
1. Track Your Food.
2. Make Fitness a Priority.
3. Treat Your Workouts Like an Appointment.
4. Get Support. (that's where Sparkers come in!!!)

    Don't beat yourself up about not sticking with your June goals. Learn from it, and move on. Your July goals sound like great goals for getting the fundamentals down, and you've covered every area. Good luck!

    Great list of goals, I can especially identify with the goal of getting 7 hours of sleep nightly, that seems to be a challenge I still deal with.
    Wishing you all the best on your July goals, emoticon

    emoticon on the weight loss. I am so impressed with your victory on the scale this month. Wish I could say the same for me but.....not so....

    When I look at your list of goals I see that you have come such a long ways. When you started did you ever think you would have such a multi faceted lists of goals as you have for this month? You have given yourself much to strive towards. It's in the challenge of meeting these goals that you'll find success.

    You may not always feel you've been completely successful in reaching monthly goals as you mentioned in reviewing June's goals but remember to celebrate the victories and keep moving forward.

    I'm taking a break from writing goals for the summer months. Though I'm not blogging them I am very aware of what they are in my own mind. I need to spend a little less time on computer sparking to accomplish other important things which need tending.

    Hope you summer is going well and that you've been able to relax some after the wedding.
