Fit Readers is a group/challenge run by Felicia @ Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and Jen @ That’s What I’m Talking About, designed to support and encourage each other on our health and fitness goals. In years past I’ve participated but just done quick updates on my Sunday Post. This year, I want my goals to be a top priority, so I’m going to share my updates in a separate, more detailed weekly post. The day it appears will probably fluctuate, though, so just keep your eyes out for it 🙂
January 26 – 31
I’m really happy with how I ended January. I was strong on my Emotional Health and Fitness goals all month. Eating lagged, but I improved and this week I finally brought it home!
Emotional Health Goal
My goal for January – Do Miracle Morning Routine every day, even if I have to do an abbreviated form.
I did it y’all! Every single day of January I did my miracle morning. Yay!
My fitness goal for January – workout 4 times a week (and bring it!)
I worked out 7 times this week! I did my LIIFT 4 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Sunday and Saturday I did my C25K run. And Wednesday I did 30 minutes of restorative yoga.
January’s eating goal – no more soda.
I’ve did a lot better this week and drank my apple juice, even though I had to pour it in a glass (what a sorry excuse, right?). No soda all week! Yay!
February 2020 Goals/h2>
Even though January was pretty good, my big goal for the year is to get down to my goal weight finally. And I did not make positive headway with that goal. Instead, I started February 1.2 pounds heavier 🙁 I know my eating is the chief culprit, so while I’m glad to have basically maintained, that’s not going to fly another month! Time to get serious, ya’ll! I am not waking up at 4:45/5 a.m. every day and working out just to have my eating undermine it’s value!
Emotional Health Goal
Since I did really well in January with my Miracle Morning, I’m ready to go to the next step with this goal. February’s goal:
Add the Morter March back into my miracle morning.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Morter March, check out Morter March Monday. There’s tutorials and details about the benefits. I started doing it last year and was shocked to feel that it really did work.
I am really happy I found the LIIFT 4 program on Beach Body. It’s just the right length (30-40 minutes), gives me 3 off days, and combines cardio and weights. I feel that I’m getting a great workout but am not overwhelmed/stressed. I also started doing my C25K and it felt good, so I really want to commit to that in February. February’s goal:
Add one C25K run into every weekend.
All right. Here’s where the gloves HAVE TO come off. I told my nutritionist that I’m ready to amp it up. So she’s supporting me through her tracking app called Better. February’s goal:
Record every bite/sip with a photo on the Better App for nutritionist to see.
I know that if I have to take a picture of it, I’m going to be careful about what I choose. Not going to grab a soda if I have to take a picture and send it to her! Hopefully this will help. Plus, she’s great about commenting back and giving suggestions like, “let’s amp up those veggies and cut back those carbs” or “that’s good, but have you tried this brand? It tastes good but is better nutritionally.” Those sorts of easy suggestions can really add up and make a big difference long term.
