So I am a goal maker. I am a list maker. I get satisfaction from checking things off my list as done. That is why I like the beginning of the month – new goal time!!
June goals did not go as well as I had planned, but I am not going to let that get me down – I am going to press on! I was initially going to blog today’s post – but we had a good ‘ol fashioned lazy family day!
If you don’t have any goals – here are a couple of people that are offering challenges for the month of July!
Tara Burner has the July Plank, Push Up & Squat July Challenge
Angela Simpson has a new challenge that she is going to offer up on Thursday at her blog Eat, Spin, Run, Repeat
Laury Ann Raiken has a 30 Day Grain Free Challenge starting up this week at The Fitness Dish
Strong Like Us Ab Challenge over on YouTube!
CrazySexyFitt’s July Plank Challenge
I also like to check out other people who list their goals and one of my favorites that I read today was a girl who I am loving! Her name is Meg and her blog is A Dash of Meg
I like that she is like me and totally not perfect and admits she didn’t make goals, but like me – doesn’t beat herself up over them!
Here are my July goals:
Try a New Fitness Class or Two. Barre class, spinning, or just a regular yoga or pilates class in an actual studio.
Participate in Katie’s Photo a Day. This one I totally found through Meg’s blog and am glad I did – it sounds awesome! I will be doing this through Instagram – @MissMollyDR is my name so check me out! Katie can be found over at Healthy Diva Eats.
Read a Book. I love to read and think that I just need to make it a goal to read one (or two) so that I can get it back in my schedule.
Make Time For Me. I find I do a lot for others and I tend to not even really take my lunch break anymore. I am going to make it a priority to seek out time for myself whether it is just going to the Starbucks on my lunch, or what not – finding some time to just be alone and quiet will be good.
Complete Challenges This Month. I will be participating in Tara Burner’s challenge, and CrazySexyFitt’s challenge, and maybe one more challenge. The only reason I choose to do three so far is that there are two that are similar!
Run 7 miles. I mean it. I want to run a full 7 miles by the end of the month. I can do it – I know I can.
Gain 1,000 Followers on Twitter. I can do it. I just need to coach myself through making sure I reciprocate what is given.
Have 2,000 Followers on My Blog. I will do it – You just wait and see!
Clean My Car Inside & Out. I didn’t even think about doing it last month even though it was a goal. Sorry dear!
I think that is all for now, which I still think it plenty since I have full days as it is. I like to challenge myself and I think this will be a great month with added fun because of it!
What are your goals???
