Unfortunately I failed to achieve my September goals. I didn’t reach my caloric burn goal, I wasn’t able to complete the Lorna Jane Squat Challenge, and we’re still eating out way more than we should (especially as we’re saving for a big trip next year). But it’s a new month, and I’m setting myself a fresh bunch of goals to achieve. Here we go!
I find that when I have a schedule in place, I’m more likely to stick to a plan. So I wrote up a month’s worth of workouts on a calendar page and my goal is to achieve all of them in a month. I don’t have to do each workout on the date shown, but I do have to do ALL of them before the month ends. When they’ve been completed I’ll mark them off with a gold star. So far so good, but we’ll see how we go. Tying in with this, I want to start running on the little track we’ve worked out near our house. It takes me a bit longer to get into road-running, but there is so much additional benefit that it’s well worth the effort. Food-wise, we’re aiming for only one takeout meal per month. I’m sure we can achieve this, especially as we’re both in strict budget mode at the moment.
