August seems to have flown by for me. One minute I’m setting up my goals and thinking about school, the next minute I’m in school and working full time. Let’s see what goals I have been able to achieve and work on from August. If you’d like to look at them click here.
I need to continue to stay more active with my blog. Trying to write or put up a little daily insight.
I have been working out almost 3 days a week. I had a pretty good schedule. With work I have to find some time.
I am still working on the “28 Day Challenge.”
Meal prepping…It’s been kind of working. I need to learn more and become better at it.
I am becoming more organized and using my journal more.
I am still staying positive and having a happier attitude. Some day’s are harder than others.
Now, while I’m still growing and achieving these goals, here are some goals I added for September:
Learn to meal prep more effectively.
Stop procrastinating with homework and things that I have to get done. One example would be my online training for work.
Get back into a Yoga routine.
Find a skin care routine that works for me, and stick to it.
What are some of your goals for September? Are you currently in the middle of working on some goals? Let me know down in the comment section below. I would love to hear them!
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
After a busy morning of bringing my cat Solo to the vet, I decided to workout. I started off with my HIIT workout, then walked my pup Rex, did weights with my mom and then finished with Yoga.
I was debating whether or not I wanted to workout because I was feeling less than motivated. To be honest, whenever I feel like this, I try to find any excuse not to work out. Today, I pushed through that. I pushed through the stress and the feeling of not wanting to do anything.I’m glad I did. Doing the workouts, then winding down with the walk and Yoga, I had more energy and felt happier. My mind feels clear and I feel more productive.
If you start to feel that kind of negative energy, do something to occupy your mind. Try working out, reading a book or basking in the some. Do something to fill your body with more positive energy.
What are some of the things you do to clear your mind and bring positive energy into your day?
I have done thirteen days out of fourteen. It’s low impact, quick and effective.
For me, this is a nice Yoga practice after a workout or simply just because. Stretch those muscles and relax.
Doing challenges for yourself is not only motivational, but it’s beneficial for you in more ways than one. I want to start off August with a determined and positive outlook on the upcoming month. I want to fill it with inspiration, motivation, new challenges and maybe even results. Starting now I will be doing a 30 Day Fitness Challenge. My challenge to ya’ll is to do a challenge with me! It could be this same exact one or something more to your liking. It doesn’t even have to be fitness. It could be taking a picture of something new everyday. This challenge is for you, your body, your mind, and your soul. This challenge is meant to reconnect yourself with you, to show you how strong, motivated and strong willed you can be. I will be doing this challenge with my biggest supporter and motivator that I am so happy to have! You can do this on your own, with friends or anyone! I will be more than happy to have you as a partner in this challenge 🙂
I’m choosing this challenge because it seems manageable. I can do this literally anytime during the day. I like that it is simple, yet it works different parts of the body so you can have a fun workout. I found this workout off of Pinterest (I know its pretty much my favorite site). I plan on sticking to this to see how much stronger I can get. I also am excited because I get to keep you involved with me on one of my new journeys! Along with fitness, there was a self appreciating challenge I saw that I thought was cute.
Working out. Being healthy. Having positivity all require time, effort and yes consistency. However, not all of us have time or consistency but all the effort. Some people will say “well, it doesn’t count because you’re not doing it 6 days out of the week.” To me, I do not agree with that statement at all. I’m busy, and ya’ll are busy with your life. We may not be able to hit the gym 6 days a week or eat a strict healthy meal every single day. Even though consistency is a key factor into a healthy fresh lifestyle there are multiple ways of achieving your goals!
My Busy Life Means Little Time
I have a crazy lifestyle with CONSTANT change. Even though I enjoy this little bit of chaos I wish I did have more time to be consistent with my workout plans, diet and even time for myself. Since I don’t have a lot of time I try to use my time wisely and efficiently. Every day for me is different, no two days are alike whatsoever, and with that neither is my workout or diet sometimes. What I try and do is, a different meal plan every week and I workout as much as I can. You may think to yourself what type of meal plans are good? How much exercise do I need?! Can I possibly even do this?!?! Breathe you can, trust me.
Working Out With Time
When I workout after a long days work or before a long days work I try to figure out how much time I have and what type of workout I can efficiently squeeze in there. Weekends are fair game for everything (: what I like to do which works for my body type are HIIT workouts. I LOVE these type of workouts because they are quick, efficient and fulfilling. I tend to build my own workouts that I piece together from Pinterest. I’ve done some of the leg work so all you have to do is just find one that you like! I try to workout at least 3 times a week. I don’t have set days just 3 days and that’s how I try to stay consistent with working out. It’s ok to rotate your days, clump them together or spread them out.
I use these when I don’t have enough time to go to the gym or I’m just feeling like I need to spend a little more energy that I have somehow. I hope ya’ll enjoy the start of something new for you! To maybe find a consistent time that will work for you. A consistent effort is what you need to achieve your dreams and goals! I believe in you and know you can do this. (: happy working out!
