Happy Wednesday! Another month, another set of goals. How is it April already? I can’t believe that the first 3 months of the year are over. I’ve had a very busy winter so that’s probably why the time has gone by so quickly.
Do you set monthly goals? I love doing these posts every month because it helps to hold me accountable, especially with my yearly goals. Sometimes it’s easy to get a little lazy with all of the day-to-day responsibilities that we have, but I always try to make my health a top priority.
First, let’s take a look at my goals from March:
Complete the Total Body Challenge
Okay, I’m not gonna lie..this was a hard challenge to complete! The Total Body Challenge had burpees, planks, supermans and push-ups. While I definitely felt stronger by the end of the month, I’m happy not doing a bunch of burpees for a while!
Try Something New
I actually tried two new things in March. I ran my first 8K, the Shamrock 8K, in Virginia Beach, VA. It was also an automatic PR so that was cool was well. I also tried cryotherapy – something I will definitely be trying again in the future.
Complete my 3rd marathon
Rocked it! Even though I cramped up in the second half of the race, I had a great marathon experience and I finished the race with a smile. I’ll take that any day over a PR!
Here are my goals for April!
Complete the Tricep Dips, Push-Ups and Jump Squats Challenge
Rachel has done it again! She is challenging us with a tricep dips, push-ups and jump squats challenge! These are some of my favorite moves so I’m super pumped for this challenge!
Strength Training 3x a Week
I’m currently training for the Cleveland 8K and Half Marathon in mid-May (save 10% on any race entry with code KGCLE10). Now that I’m training for a half marathon vs a marathon, I have more free time, so what better time to add more strength training! I really want to become a stronger runner and I know that this will help me accomplish that goal.
Start A Food Log
I’m not on a weight loss program like Weight Watchers, but I would still like to log my food during the day. I’m really sick of feeling stuck at my current weight. I think that by being proactive and writing down what I eat during the day, it will really help me make smarter choices. Eventually I’d like to be down at least 5 pounds by the end of the summer. I think that’s a realistic goal.
If you set monthly goals, what are your goals for April?
