You know what day it is in 2 hours? (Eastern Standard Time)
For those of you who attend Hogwarts, I’ll see you at Platform 9 3/4 at 11 am sharp 🙂
But for the rest of you, it’s a new month.
A new start, a fresh beginning, resolution starting, a day anew.
So I made a promise to myself to start a goal list at the beginning of each month. Personal and Training Goals.
Without further ado, my goals!
My September Goals
1. To stop eating sugar-filled, calorie loaded desserts. Or less of them, anyways.
2. To start training for a triathlon. Which includes swimming.
3. To lose 6 pounds.
4. To be less stressed. I know the things in my life won’t be less stressful, but I need to stop stressing myself out. It’s not helping.
5. To sit up straighter. My posture looks like a 98 year old lady. That’s not cute.
6. To love more freely. I’ve been guarding myself. Why? Everyone in my life loves me unconditionally.
7. To stop emotional-eating. Like I said, life is stressful. Food is not my weapon to combat it.
8. LEARN TO LOVE MYSELF AND STOP JUDGING AND COMPARING MYSELF TO OTHERS.
Amongst other silly things, like show up to class and such. 🙂
My September Training Goals
1. To hit an 8 minute mile, 2 miles in a row.
2. To compete in at least 1 5k this month.
3. Bring along at least 3 friends/acquaintances to work out with me. The more the merrier, share the love, and all that.
4. Train hard for the Half Marathon (notice I put it in caps, hence, importance.)
5. Swim consistently for 2000 m. I know that’s a big goal, but I used to do that every day as practice and I’d love to get back there. But if I hit like 1400, I’ll still be thrilled.
6. Make my long run, longer. 14 miles preferably.
7. Run with my dad.
8. Hit 2 minutes on planks, consistently.
9. Work on arms more. Rowing, push-ups, weight training.
10. Go to the gym and actually be active for 90 min/5 days a week.
There you have it!
I’m actually pretty pleased with them and I’ll definitely be posting end of the month updates on said goals. 🙂
In training news, I’ve been having a lot of problems with my ankle. So running hasn’t been as important as I need it to be. The pain is located behind the bone that sticks out on the outside and in the very front of the ankle. I’m going back to a specialist, so hopefully he’ll be able to help me out.
We have a treadmill at my house that I love, except it catches under your feet sometimes, causing a sort of slipping effect. But, it works wonders for shock absorption, which I LOVE.
Until next time!
