Motivational Mondays {1} – 6 Month Goals

motivationalmondays

welcome to the first post of motivational mondays! today I’m going to be talking about goals. goals are tricky, because if you don’t plan accordingly, or have too many of them, you end up failing! every time.

i decided to make it easier. i’m going to start with 4 six-month goals, then take those goals and make them into mini-goals that our easily attainable in monthly chunks! i know you’re excited about those goals! me too!

six-month goals – due feb 2

  1. be able to run a 5-K.
  2. find a workout routine i like and stick to it.
  3. be in the single digits in pant/dress size.
  4. drink 8 -8oz glasses of water daily.

that’s it. it’s simple. i’m trying to make this more exciting and easier. now, i’m going to break these goals down for the month of august.

4 fit goals in august –

  1. sign up for a 5k and start the Couch to 5K Plan – 3x/week
  2. try Yoga through The Light Bannner
  3. track workouts and food in My Fitness Pal (you should add me!)
  4. download an app that will remind me to drink water or make alarms on my phone.

that wasn’t too painful. did you notice the goals for august coincided with my monthly goals? september’s goals will build on that!

Do you have any fitness goals? If so, what are they? Where are you needing encouragement? Help? Join me on Wednesday for my first weigh-in since the re-launch, plus what I’ve been eating. Have a wonderful Monday!

About Ren Was Fit

Ren Was Fit

Ren Was Fit is more of a personal blog where I can document what I am doing to live out my fit lifestyle.

I could have used Ren Was Here, but I wanted a more personal approach. Anyone and everyone is welcome to read this, but I’m not going to be shouting from the rooftops that there’s a new post.

Ren Was Fit will have a lot of different features and weekly themes:

Motivational Mondays – I will share motivational quotes, goals for the week/month/etc., and a follow-up of the past week

Weight-Loss Wednesdays – This will be a hard and honest day, I will share my current weight (yes for real), current measurements, as well as pictures. This is to show my progress.

A link up with WIAW (What I Ate Wednesdays) – if you read food and fitness blogs, this is a popular link-up I thought I’d join to get into the fit/healthy blog community.

Fit Friday – I will share my weekly workout routines, anything related to fitness, favorite blogs, a new workout to try, fitness magazine reviews, and Bulu Box Weight Loss reviews. Maybe even some vlogs!

Food Friday – This is where I will share recipes and anything related to food.

You may not see all of these every week, but these will be the standards and the building blocks of this blog. You may be intrigued, you may not. This may be the last time you see this page. But, I need your help! I can’t do this on my own. I’ve finally learned that. I need accountability. This is where you come in. If you are going along the same journey share, email, and interact with me. I’d love to help you too! If you have a story to tell, I’d love to share it as well as glean from it. And lastly, if you just want to cheer me on or check on me, you are more than welcome to do that!

I sure hope you stick around, because I can’t do this with out you!

Ren Was Fit – Relaunch

I’m back and more determined then ever to get into shape. Things are coming back to life on Ren Was Fit. I’m still going strong over at Ren Was Here, but I needed a different “book” to write a different part of my story.

So, I tried before, but it didn’t work. I failed. That’s something I don’t like to do. Failing is not in my 5 year plan, but somehow I fail every time.

If you had asked me 5 years ago would I still be overweight? I would have said no. I would have said: I’ll be fit. But, I’m not. I’m gaining weight and my clothes are doing the reverse effect of baggy.

So, what can I do? Find a different bandwagon… Not the get-skinny-quick, the-everyone’s-doing-it-diet, nor the-eat-whatever-you-want-you’re-not-gaining-weight-denial-diet.

I’m using this blog as a place to document, vent, experiment, and share how I WILL GET FIT…

There’s no more try, there’s only do.

My mantra at the beginning of the summer was: “Learn to Love the Burn.”

I’m embracing that it’s me that has to change. It make take a while to get in stride of where I need to be, but it has to happen.

Living in a new place is going to be a bit harder, but, there are so many more ways to get fit, I know I won’t get bored! Are you ready for the adventure??

Join me tomorrow for more about this blog and where it’s headed! Please bear with me while I build this site.

Come here from Ren Was Here? Welcome!
