Motivational Mondays {1} – 6 Month Goals


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!


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.
