June goals

I know its cliche to talk about how fast time is moving, but honestly... is this real life?! 2015 is nearly half way over already?! I'm definitely not complaining, though... I'm ready for warmer temps!

Since my half marathon in early May, I really haven't worked out much...okay, at all. Other than a few rounds of ultimate Frisbee and backyard kickball, I've been lazy. Mostly because for 3 straight weeks I felt like I could hardly put weight on my right foot, but to be totally honest? I had gotten out of the habit of exercising around mid-April. I truly think its because I just got lazy and stopped setting realistic (yet challenging) goals for myself.

Caleb and I watched a football movie on Sunday night where they wrote down very specific "season goals" and gave their cards to each other to keep the other accountable...I remember telling you all last year about our "weekly goals" challenge for each other, and we're going to start implementing that again. More on that to come later! For now...here are my JUNE goals!

To use MyFitnessPal again! At one point, my streak was over 170 days...I know its not all about the streak, but it really made me think twice about what I put in my body because I'd be logging it all.

Drink more water. This kind of goes hand in hand with the above goal, but I haven't been drinking nearly as much water as I used to so I'm wanting to cut out pop (upcoming dentist appt!!) and focus solely on water.

Get back in the gym. Now that my foot is feeling a million times better (no pain whatsoever - pretty sure I'm in the clear!), its time to push myself again. I've missed running and lifting so much. I've gained quite a few pounds since March and I'm ready to shed them and get back to feeling fit again! Exercise just makes me a happier person, and I love that.

Make our wedding album selections. I mean... talk about 2 years in the making. The sad part is? It was INCLUDED in our wedding package.. all we have to do is pick out our favorite pictures and its made FOR US! Although, I do still want to make my own customized photo books for a lot of seasons in life (both 2013 + 2014, our honeymoon and also our wedding...but lets be honest, that won't happen until wedding season is over).

Finish 2 books. This is a huge goal for me. Reading used to be such a huge part of my life and I love it so much. Now with blocking out certain evenings throughout the week for more "me time/free time" I know I can get this done.

Relax more. Sure, I've got a never ending list of edits to complete, and 4 weddings this month...but making more time for "me" and things I want to do? It's definitely happening. I'm excited for this month and all the fun things it's going to bring!!

What are a few June goals YOU have for yourself?

  1. I can 100% relate to dragging my feet on the wedding album. It took forever for me to finally sit down and pick out the pics.

  4. Great goals and I know you'll accomplish them! I've been trying to drink more water lately, too, but it's so tough for me. Soda is definitely my weakness. If you make more time for you, you'll be able to relax and read simultaneously! Get it, girl!

  6. Girl I feel you on these! I just barely started using MyFitnessPal again this week, and hit the gym for the first time in forever! It's hard to get back on the wagon, but once you do it's worth it. Let's hope June is the month for that!

  8. i did MyFitnessPal for about 2 months. It really held me accountable, but boy was it boring to have to add every.single.thing to your list.. It ended up taking too much time so i gave up on it. or started eating the same things over and over so I would enter them faster.. recipe for disaster..

    it took us forever to decide on the album as well. yikes! but it was so worth it. We actually left our album with my parents (since they live in a different country) and kept the one I made for ourselves.

  9. I am with you on drinking more water and cutting out the pop. For about a month I was doing super awesome with drinking at least 64oz/day and having NO pop. Lately I've been back to my old habits of saying this will be the week I get back to drinking only water and then a day into I cave and have a Dew. Let's hold each other accountable and encourage each other! And I am so glad to hear that your foot is feeling a million times better. :)

  11. I love the one about drinking more water. I need to do that so badly (as I sit here with an empty water bottle I haven't refilled since yesterday haha).

  12. Love this list! Especially drinking more water and using FitnessPal again (I've been totally slacking on that app!). And I hear you on the wedding album selections, it took us foreverrrrrr to choose ours :-P

  13. I think you're going to rock this list! I keep a water bottle with me at all times and even then I still dont think I drink enough! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  14. Drinking more water is ALWAYS on my list - it's hard to do! I find that I'm most successful when I add lemon or strawberries to it. Good luck!
