Fitness Journey

Fitness Goal: Run a 5k

I have felt so helpless in the past 8 1/2 months since I have not been able to be as active as I would like. This pregnancy has also made me even more aware how important it is that I recondition myself and get back into my fit lifestyle once I am cleared after delivery at my 6 week check up.

This past weekend I made a list of my fitness goals that I am prioritizing as I prepare myself to get back out there. I am going to commit to walking 2-4 miles per day and gradually work myself back into running. I recently joined a local running club for women called, “MOMS Run This Town” (aka MRTT). Those ladies are inspiring and is just the support that I need to accomplish one of my biggest fitness goals– to run a 5K before the end of the year.

This group has chapters is various states and if you are interested you can visit the main website https://momsrunthistown.com/local-running-club/ and locate a chapter to locally join.

I am really looking forward to preparing myself for running a 5k. I have the support of my Husband Andrew who also has already began training for our first marathon. It makes it so much better when you have someone to do things together with. When I first shared with him my goal he was thrilled and wanted to do it as well.

I am writing this post to share with you my fitness goals. For those of you that know me and or have come to know me through my blog, you should then know that I am constantly encouraging my readers to set goals for themselves (health, fitness, and personal goals). In my efforts to be as trasnsparent as possible with my journey, I will be sharing with you my goals. I will continue to keep you updated on my progress while on my health and fitness journey.

Monthly Goals

New Month, New Goals: May 2019

I am welcoming the month of May with lots of positivity and love. This is the month our son will be making his debut and as I prepare I have created a few goals for the month:

  1. Read More Books (downloaded the goodreads app and challenged myself to read 100 books before the end of the year- already 8 books in)
  2. Walk a minimum of 1-2 miles per day up until delivery and will walk daily as tolerated postpartum
  3. Begin logging my meals/calories again (slightly took a break during these past few months)
  4. Check in daily in my fitness apps to ensure my activity and progress is being logged (It’s about showing up daily)
  5. Blog more about my active fitness journey as I recover and prepare to run a 5k in the coming months
  6. Be more involved in my groups (It has been difficult for me to attend meetings and events as I prepare to delivery in the coming week)
  7. Transition to reduce my carb intake (Will return to low carb diet after delivery)
  8. Complete a trail run with Hubby
  9. Increase Water Intake
  10. Be more interactive with other WP blogs

Monthly goals will be a new category on my blog. With each month I will blog about my monthly goals. I encourage everyone to write down their goals for the month. This is a great exercise to motivate you to accomplish your goals. When you write out your goals you are writing them into existence. Reflect on your written goals daily. Check each completed task off your list. It feels great to accomplish your goals.

Share below in the comments one goal you have set for this month.
