Hello Monday – 10/2/23

Happy Monday! I’m here with Holly and I hope you’ll link up with us for Hello Monday! I have an assortment of things to share this week.

I started discovered Morgan Harper Nichols on Instagram in the Garden24co, thestorytellerco, and morganharpernichols accounts. She shared this yesterday and I hope this for all of us in October!

It is time for me to get back to goal setting. I’m starting small, but intentional.

1. Run (run/walk) at least 3 times a week.

I power walk most days and I’ve been saying I want to get back to running for a long time. I’m ready to put my money where my mouth is. I will run or run/walk on Mondays and Wednesdays during Luke’s soccer practice and add one more day each week.

2. Track my macros and eat at least 75 grams of protein each day.

I haven’t thought about a macro in months! We are finishing up fall birthday season tomorrow and jumping right into Halloween candy season. It’s time to get back to protein! I feel better when I eat a bunch of protein, so I’m focusing on it.

3. Drink at least 64 ounces of water every day and 32 ounces before 1 pm.

I haven’t been drinking enough water throughout the day. I get really thirsty in the evening and start drinking water to make up for the rest of the day. I’m going to increase and even out my water intake in October.

4. Plan for healthier lunches.

I have been doing a much better job packing my lunches than in past years, but there have been quite a few mornings of fridge grab lunches. I am going to plan my lunches when I plan my dinners so I can shop for them with my weekly grocery pick up.

5. Keep up my 23 minutes outside each day.

I had no trouble getting 23 minutes outside in June, July, August, and September. I am going to keep getting 23 minutes outside even if it is chilly or raining.

What are you working on in October? Are you setting health goals? Do you want to read more? Are you trying to spend more time with family? Do you want to enjoy some quieter moments? Let me know and we can cheer each other on. Be sure to link up below if you blogged today. Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

    I haven’t thought about goal setting in awhile – those are good ones! Why 23 minutes? Is there something to that specific number? I love being outside but I’ve never been intentional about it – I wonder if I do get out as much as I think?

    I started (kind of) health goals back at the end of August. At least 30 mins. of being active each day, and better food choices. I was doing good until last week. We had consecutive rainy days, my appetite and food cravings took over and just like that, the goals went POOF! I started back yesterday with a great bike ride and will continue today with tennis. I had also been walking on my lunch break. Sometimes the whole 30 mins, sometimes just 10-whatever I could fit in. Gotta soak up the lovely fall weather.

    These are great goals! I swear I have great intentions every week but they seem to fly out the door by the weekend.
