Can you believe it is the first day of June?!? I am so excited that June is here because it means summer is just about here. We’ve had a little taste of early summer with beautiful weather and extra outside time with out work/learn from home schedule and it feels so good! The boys only have 8 days of school left.
Before I start on my June goals, let’s check in on my May goals. I did pretty well!
☀️ Complete the Core Challenge on Peloton. Sort of – I didn’t finish it, but I am still working on it. I have a few more workouts left.
☀️ Start running 2 times a week. Yes! I am running three times a week on my couch to 10k program
☀️ Read 5 books. It is Summer Beach Read season and I have so many books to read. Yes! In fact, I read 10 books this month!
☀️ Start wearing earrings and/or a necklace every day. Yes! I got the cutest sunshine necklace and I’ve been wearing my earrings every day.
☀️ No shopping for fun stuff until Memorial Day because I am not going anywhere and there are plenty of comfy, cute clothes and shoes in my closet and dresser. Yes! I only bought 2 things – that great nail polish and a shirt I’ve had my eye on for weeks but wasn’t available in my size until mid May.
☀️(Repeat from last month)Look for the sunshine. By that I mean keep finding the positives that are happening all around me, even in the midst of this scary pandemic. Yes! Even though there have been some low days in May, I think I have been pretty positive keep looking for that sunshine!
Here are my June goals:
☀️ Keep my couch to 10k program by running every other day.
Strategies: plan out running on my calendar, continue accountability with my friend Jamie who is also doing it, try varying my routes so I don’t get bored
☀️ Read 8 books. June is the true beginning of Summer Reading season for me and I can’t wait!
Strategies: keep my kindle with me all the time, keep reading when I wake up in the middle of the night, read for 20 minutes when I wake up, family reading time in the afternoon/evening
☀️ Find new places to play outside. We love the pool and playing in our yard but this summer is going to be a little different. We have been playing outside A TON and we aren’t going to be able to play at the pool all day long.
Strategies: visit our local parks, explore the waterways, day trips
☀️ Do Peloton Total Strength program. I’ve noticed that since I stopped running every day and I’m not taking body pump/strength classes, I am losing some muscle tone.
Strategies: do it in the morning, schedule my workouts, include the boys in my workouts, do the workouts outside
☀️ Drink at least 75 ounces of water a day. I have really been struggling to drink enough water at home lately and I can tell.
Strategies: use my hourly marked cup, set an timer for 30 minutes as a reminder to drink water throughout the day
☀️ Order my new planners for school and home. I am hopeful that I will have things to write in this planner soon and I can’t wait to try the new format!!
Strategies: pick Erin Condren Daily Duo and teacher planner covers and order (I know this sounds a little silly, but it takes me a long time to pick my covers.)
These are my goals for the month. I am excited to get started on all of these things! If I can achieve them, when I revisit at the beginning of July, I will be healthier, more organized, and well read. Have a great day full of sunshine and books!
