I learned an important lesson in June. Breaks are nice but I need goals to thrive. With that said, here are my goals for July.
1. Set and follow a schedule.
For the next 7 or 8 weeks I have no set schedule with work or school. Right now I don’t even have a to do list. Both of these things are going to change as soon as possible. I’m going to make a flexible “work” schedule to make myself focus on the things I want to get done (and need to get done) this summer.
2. Track my food and eat slowly.
I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I gained a few pounds over these trips. On top of that I really want to get down to the weight that I maintained for over a year. (I would love to get a little lower but I’m not going to push it with marathon training.)
I want to do this sensibly so I will track my food using livestrong.com and focus on taking my time while I eat.
3. Complete each day of marathon training.
Officially, this started last Monday. I think this goes hand in hand with goal #3. I am excited and nervous about this. Monday will be my marathon training day so I’ll post my tentative/flexible plan this coming Monday. (Or Sunday, since Monday is my birthday and a holiday. Who knows? It could be later. :D0
Yes, another challenge. I knew I might not be able to complete the planks challenge. I didn’t. I haven’t done a single plank since.
I’m actually really excited about this challenge because I think it’s a perfect fit with my other goals.
Here’s to a success-filled July!
