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 August:
Complete Matty’s Summer Crunch Core Program
I’ll finish up this program today. I won’t say that I enjoy all of the classes, but Matty did introduce me to a few new core moves that I’ll try to incorporate more.
Eat more plant based meals
I did semi-okay with this goal. I don’t eat fast food, but I could do a better job of cooking solely from scratch. I do great with breakfast and lunch, but could do better with my dinner selections. I can’t lie – I do enjoy certain frozen and refrigerated foods from Trader Joes, like their lemon pepper chicken, salads and some of their frozen meals.
Complete longer runs
I completed at least one 60 minute run per week, sometimes two a week. I was surprised at how good the runs felt. I really haven’t done any type of distance running all year but my legs feel stronger so maybe all my strength training is paying off.
Here are my goals for September!
Complete two virtual 10ks
I’ll be running the Back on My Feet Running Festival 10K and the lululemon SeaWheeze 2021 Virtual Half Marathon and 10K this month. i feel pretty good about running these races, especially since they are both for amazing causes! Fall has always been my favorite month for racing and although I won’t be running any in-person races, I will enjoy running a few virtual races for charity.
Complete the Orangetheory DriTri
September means it’s DriTri time! It’s a 2,000m row, 300 body weight exercises and a 5K run. I think this will be my fourth time doing the DriTri. It will be outside again this year so I just had to sign up for it again. I’m not looking to PR this time since I have gotten a PR 3 times, but it’s always a great sense of accomplishment once it’s over.
Research virtual volunteer experiences
Work is going to be pretty insane for the next 2 months, but I would like to look into a few virtual volunteer opportunities. I’m not 100% comfortable with volunteering in-person, but I have heard of a few local non-profits that have remote/virtual opportunities so I will explore those. I used to volunteer a lot before the pandemic and I feel the need to get back to that.
That’s it for this month – wish me luck!
