So yesterday I posted here, about making goals. I had a hard time making some goals that were focused, and able to be measured. Today I am outlining how I am going to show myself I can make make some healthy habits stick, and focus. This is important to me- I will have a undetermined about of time that my husband is deployed, and staying focused while he is gone is going to be a sanity saver.
I hope you will join me! You can comment here, email me, whatever social media outlet you like – I would love for you to join me!
I am most successful when I go on my fitness journey with others. It provides accountability and support from each other, something I cannot find solo. Having people with me means that I’ll push myself, because I know that other people are counting on me and cheering me on. Explains why I enjoyed team sports. I went to the gym more when I knew a friend was waiting there for me.I do know that October has 31 days, I just plan on using the last day to celebrate / plan Novembers goals.
1. Training 2. Hydrating 3. Stretching 4. Nutrition
The unofficial 5th focus is on blogging each day of the challenge. This is hopefully what will keep me accountable- or I will hurry up and do it so I can post pictures
Over the next 30 days I will work towards my end goal of finishing my half marathons with proper training.
I will run or cross train 4 days a week at home or in the gym following my training plan over the next 30 days. ( I will post the weeks workouts on Sundays if you want to do them too! )
I had cut soda out of my life, but vacation brought it back. So I need some more h2o in my life!
I will drink my daily recommendation of water by drinking a glass of water before each meal, and creating a timer on my phone when I should be drinking more water to ensure I am! Also- when I get sick of water, which I know I will- I will look for natural and healthy options. I have heard great things about Nuun! Let me know your tricks, and tips,I am in need of them!
I used to be bendy flexible, now touching my toes is hard! I hope to improve this to help with my running.
I will dust off my foam roller, use it once a day, for at least 5 minutes for the whole 30 days. BONUS- I will try not to post pictures of me crying/ whining about this goal. I will also be doing light stretching to accompany after foam rolling.
I am supposed to be avoiding gluten for Hashimoto’s Thyroid autoimmune disease – If you follow me on instagram, you know I do not. Not even a little.
I will work on my own to find easy meals to remove gluten from my life, and research one a week to try to implement in my life – creating a gluten free menu book of sorts for myself.
They might not all be super S.M.A.R.T. goals, but they are specific and all on deadlines of this challenge. Also- I wrote them down! It is supposed to help you keep focused on them if you write it and put it somewhere you go often. Please excuse my handwriting. ( I have terrible writing, this really is as good as it gets – oops)
Day one tomorrow! What healthy habits are you trying to make?
Remember- It only takes 21 days to make a habit! You got this!
