June Commitments

Forgive me, this post doesn't have a picture *gasp*!

In my attempt to do the 30 day squat challenge I realized that I'm not one of those people that can set monthly or yearly goals and expect to achieve them.  Don't get me wrong, I'm a Philippians 4:13 kind of girl so I know that I am more than capable, it's just a matter of whether or not setting goals this way is the best approach for me.  It isn't!

So now that I know that I can handle a challenge for 10-15 days I figure why not make small bi-weekly commitments each month.  This doesn't mean that every two weeks I'll challenge myself differently, I'm actually only planning to commit to two weeks per month.  The other two weeks will be like a rest period.  A really nice relaxing one, but a rest period nonetheless.  And maybe, just maybe, I can build up to three weeks then four weeks eventually.  We'll see!

So here's what the next two weeks will look like for me:

  • Drink water only (or milk) and more of it.
  • No sugar/sweets except honey (excluding my birthday on Wednesday :))!
  • Complete {this} 15 minute ab challenge each day.
That's it! Three things.  Simple yet challenging.  Let's see how I do ;)!

  1. This is a great idea! I'm working with a friend to assist her in meeting her fitness goals and for an intro I'm having her develop some SMART goals which is similar to what you are referring to: realistic and measureable. By doing so, you are more likely to stay encouraged about meeting goals and making progress! Great post, even though you don't have a pic :)!

    1. Yes, I remember seeing the SMART goals on a post of yours. I need to go back to that post and refresh myself. I definitely feel like this approach will be more achievable since it's much more realistic! I'm excited to see how it goes!

  2. love your blog! just found you through Kristine :)

    these are great goals- Happy Birthday! i love blogging about health too :-)

    1. Thanks so much, Katherine! I look forward to checking out your blog!!!

  3. Great goals! A friend of mine and I are keeping each other accountable every week. We started with committing to do some form of exercise 3 days for a half hour in our designated week. We're either going to let each other know when we worked out or we'll check on each other at the end of the week. Then set another goal, probably the same one for now. Good luck--it's tough trying to form an exercise habit.

    1. That's perfect, Dawn! I really need an accountabilabuddy! My long-term goal is to be able to work out 3-4 times per week for at least a half hour as well. It definitely is tough but I'm determined to get there! Good luck to you and your friend as well :)!

  4. Such good goals! I really need to drink more water and less soda!


    1. Thanks, Angela! I feel like they are simple and attainable so I feel like I have a better chance of sticking with it. Letting go of soda is SO hard!

  5. Great goals. Ok I will start with drink more water. I am definitely not one to stick to any type of regimen. Love you guys~~~~


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I read and cherish each and every one and do my very best to respond to all in a timely manner.
