September Goals!

Hello there!
You know what day it is in 2 hours? (Eastern Standard Time)
September 1st.

For those of you who attend Hogwarts, I’ll see you at Platform 9 3/4 at 11 am sharp πŸ™‚
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.

Amongst other silly things, like show up to class and such. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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!
