September is a great month to begin a new.
Summer is tough to stick to a plan with traveling, parties, and lots of celebrations. Although I am not an advocate for excuses, it is possible, but I am not going to deny it is difficult.
As this summer comes to a close, I am full of emotions. There has been a lot of happy moments, sad moments, and life changes, but overall I kind of put my health on the back burner. Life happens, and I am not going to sit around and think of what I could have done differently. My own fitness journey has never been a straight line, it has had plenty of ups and downs, twists and turns.
September and Fall always reminds me of getting back into a routine. Even though I am no longer in school, this month always feels like a fresh start and new beginning, much more so than January in my opinion.
So this month, I am going to go back to basics and make monthly goals, that way I have something to hold myself accountable for at the end of the month.
S0 without further ado I will share with you my own September goals:
- Drink more water (100 ounces a day)
- Get to the gym ( at least 5 days per week)
- Focus on form (building my strength back)
- Meal Prep (less poor decisions)
- Cooking/Learn new recipes (eating out less)
- Less snacking (especially at work)
I challenge anyone reading this to make their own goals for September. It doesn’t have to be fitness related, but sometimes it is good to remind ourselves we can set a goal, and achieve it. And nothing feels better than working toward something you wanted, and actually getting it. Before this journey I really lacked confidence of any sort, but once I started seeing results, I got hooked. Success can be addicting.
Figure out what you want in life, and go out and get it!
