Seriously, it’s been since Tuesday since we’ve chatted? Aah! It’s been a crazy week! I have had blog topics going through my head all week, but I never actually had a chance to type them out. Today I finally have some down time, so here I am!
So I realized that it was April – about two weeks into the month – and I thought about some goals to set for the month. And then I laughed because I have been so bad at sticking to goals lately. But still I thought it would be fun (read: funny) to recap my March goals that never really came to fruition.
Goal 1 was – EXERCISE COMEBACK #348685
This didn’t happen. It did a little bit, towards the end of the month when I got back on the T25 bandwagon, but not as much as I was hoping this month. I blame traveling two weeks in a row and work being so dang busy. Yeah, I blame work. And I shouldn’t because that’s dumb. I only have myself to blame.
Goal 2 was – POUND THE PAVEMENT
Walking, running, getting my steps in every day. I kind of did this. Some days I got the amount of steps I wanted/needed, and some days I didn’t . You heard about my giant push the last week of the month to get the amount of steps I needed to get my gym reimbursement, so I did this to some extent.
Goal 3 was – BRING MY LUNCH
I did do this! Mainly because I have been so busy at work that I didn’t have time to go out for lunch on days I was in the office. Win win?
So, what’s my plan this month (now that it’s already mid-month)? I’m going to get back on track. I did T25 four times this week, but I still feel a little unmotivated and just in a funk about exercise. I need to do something to get myself excited again, to make exercise a top priority in my life, to get motivated again. Some ideas:
- Get back to the gym a couple times a week to supplement T25 – it has been far too long since I’ve visited a treadmill or an elliptical machine
- Do some new workouts – I just discovered fitnessblender.com, so cool!
- Push ups every day – this is so easy to do, drop and do 10 anywhere, but yet I don’t do it
- Steps, steps, steps – I really really want to get in at least 7,000 a day. Why is this so hard?!
So that’s the plan from here on. I need to get back on the wagon. I have said this so many times, and I’m tired of talking about it. It’s time to make working out priority again. Yay!
How about you … What are your fitness goals this month? What are ways you stay motivated to work out? I need tips!
