I know we are already two weeks in to September but I am just now checking in with my #GoalGetter2013 progress. It's been a busy few weeks but I didn't forget about my monthly goals.
As you know, I've been using #GoalGetter2013 and the Weekly Chase to help me stay accountable for my running resolutions and weekly goals. I will be doing an update each month to help me stay focused.
Here are my previous updates:
Now for the month of August!
Run 3-4 times a week: Half marathon training started this month so I've definitely been getting in those runs! I've run at least 3 times each week this month!
Incorporate at least one walk every week for cross training: I tried this for the first week or so and just couldn't make it happen. With school starting and my new job I just couldn't fit it in. :-(
Participate in the August Core Focus Challenge: I didn't do the exercises every day but I did do them about 3 times a week. On the other hand, I was horrible at posting about the exercises on Challenge Loop and Instagram. :-/
Daily Bible Devotion: Yes! I've been continuing with the She Reads Truth Bible plans! I love that site!
Stretch and Roll Daily: I've really slacked on this goal. And that's probably why my quad is super tight.
Manage my time as I start a new job: I think I am finally figuring this one out. I made sure to plan time every day for blog writing and lesson planning as well as the daily chores of the house.
Per #GoalGetter2013 requirements, I posted the following picture on Instagram to show my goal progress for August!
For the month of September, I am going to continue to focus on running 3-4 times a week. I am going to make the long run a priority now that I am training again. I am going to continue with my daily Bible devotions and stretching and rolling. I also want to focus on spending quality individual time with each of my boys this month. I feel like I am constantly redirecting their behavior or busy doing things around the house. I want to spend time with them where we just talk and I just listen. They are growing up way too fast and I don't want to miss a thing!
I hope you are joining me for both the Weekly Chase and #GoalGetter2013!
