Happy Friday! It’s a new month and it’s time to set new goals! No matter how crazy everything gets, I always like to set monthly goals because I find that they help to keep me focused.
First, let’s take a look at my goals from February:
Hit 4K minutes in the Peloton Annual 2021 Challenge
I was actually able to hit 5K minutes so I exceeded this goal – I was shocked. I have been doing more pre and post workouts stretches, meditation and yoga so I guess it’s all adding up!
Meal prep every weekend
I used to meal prep by meal so I would make all my individual meals. That worked for a while but then I noticed that I would get sick of the food. Last month I tried batch cooking my proteins and veggies so that I could mix and match the items throughout the week. It really worked out well and I will continue this method moving forward.
Increase my water intake
I downloaded an app, Water Reminder, to help me track my water intake. It also gives me reminders every few hours to drink water which is super helpful. I hit my water goal about 80% of the month.
Here are my goals for March!
PR the Orangetheory DriTri
My studio is doing the DriTri at the end of the month and they are offering an outdoor option again (yay)! I got a nice PR the last time I did the DriTri in September so I don’t know if I can PR again, but I’m definitely going to try!
March Core with Jess
This isn’t an official Peloton program but I’m going to work my way through all of Jess Sims’ core classes this month, ranging from 5-30 minutes. She has enough classes to take me through the whole month, but will give me a break on Sundays which will be nice. I’ve taken some of the classes already so there will be repeats but that’s fine. You can never go wrong with any of the core classes!
Reduce social media time at night
I mentioned in last week’s Runfessions post that I have found myself spending way too much time mindlessly scrolling through social media apps at night. I know that part of this is because I don’t watch a lot of TV and I haven’t found anything new on Netflix that I want to watch. This month I want to find another activity to do in that ‘after dinner/before bed’ timeframe so that I can spend less screen time with my phone.
That’s it for this month – wish me luck!
