Create your own July Fitness goals along with me and we can motivate each other towards healthier bodies! Choose small goals that are challenging yet attainable during the month!
Heyyy there friends!
It’s time for another look at fitness goals. My July Fitness Goals aren’t as lofty as other months, but that’s because we have a vacation thrown into the mix! I’m really excited to get away and introduce Annabelle to my favorite vacation, but more on that later!
Today, let’s chat goals. I don’t necessarily believe in the New Years Resolutions, but think goals are attainable. If you choose to set goals for the year, they are most likely lofty ones, and ones that have small steps that build up towards the end result. With that in mind, you can conquer those lofty ones but setting monthly goals that get you a little bit closer to the main goal. Of course, you have to be willing to work, but in my opinion, setting monthly goals help me stay on track and see the end in sight.
Let’s take a look at my July Fitness Goals:
1. Water… water…water.
This may as well be my goal for every month. I don’t know why I can’t get my act together and drink more! I am aiming for 3 water bottles a day (or 72 oz).
2. Run outside with Annabelle 2 times a week.
She loves runs and I love the challenge it gives me. She is staying awake for a couple hours in the morning, so right after she wakes up we can head out!
3. Enjoy vacation without the stress of working out.
This is a big one for me. I am always one that thinks I need to work out while on vacation, and I do usually love it. But, I want to make sure I’m soaking up all the moments this year and if that means workouts don’t happen, then so be it. Ideally I’d like to take a walk or something every day, but again, my goal is to not beat myself up.
4. Bring my plank up to 2:30 minutes!
I need to work on this daily but I really want to increase the time I can plank. They are a fantastic exercise, but one that I toss to the wayside.
5. Run 5 miles (or more ) at least once a week
I miss my long runs and most days I rush and get in 3 or so miles and call it a day. I actually just did a 5 mile run yesterday, and I forgot how much I zone out and just enjoy it. So yeah, I want to add those long runs back in. I consider 5 miles a long run because it’s not something I typically do, but I know others’ may laugh at that because their long runs are 15, 16, 20+ miles. Remember, your fitness journey is yours and not to be compared with anyone else
I am aiming to complete all of these goals by the end of the month! Who is with me? Tell me something YOU are working on right now.
