The summer is over. It is. Put the white pants away.
Only 80 days left until Thanksgiving and the Cookie Season.
Are you ready? I'm pre-working out. Or I'm just working out. Trying to stick with my lifestyle changes and make all the right choices. I want to eat my favorite things this Holiday season and not worry about packing on the extra pounds. So if I can meet my goals in September, October, and November, I will feel a lot let stressed when the holiday season hits us hard in December (and into January.)
We're only a couple days into this month. What do you want September to look like? What do you want the rest of the year to look like? When January 1st rolls around, will you feel good about how the last half of 2015 went? I'm not proud of a couple months (March-June), but I want to make the most of the end of 2015.
My goals for the month include:
- Fitness: At least 20 30-minute workouts/burn 300 calories.
- Food (Fitness): Lose 7 pounds
- Spiritual: Church every weekend
- Financial: Crunch to save an extra $250/month. ($190 is already coming from Liam's Daycare Savings.)
So far I have not nailed the fitness part. I'm juggling a lot on my plate right now and haven't made fitness a priority. All four of those items mentioned above are important to my life and don't have an order (though we know we'd die without food.)
August saw better days with my fitness. I am very happy to say I lost 4.2 pounds in August. Even when I went without working out due to being sick. And when I'm sick I don't make the greatest food choices.
Jason and I have been doing Beachbody's T25 Focus. Sometimes I hate all the jumping around or the up-down, but otherwise it's been good to me and I'm seeing results. We had a couple great weeks in August of doing the program. Especially the week of the 17th.
In other news, August was a big month because I decided to become a Beachbody Coach! At the moment I'm still trying to figure it out, and I won't focus on coaching until after Halloween. You'll probably see a post or two about that soon and the Beachbody monthly specials. For now, if you want me as your coach, or you want to order anything, here's my link. Feel free to email me with questions too. I have lots of tools - you can even click at the top of the page for some of my 21 Day Fix tools, including my own meal planner. (My coach name is MegRG, my ID number is: 782058)
And why Halloween? Because Jason is taking his Professional Engineering exam on October 30th. While he studies I get to do all the fun stuff like laundry, vacuuming, dishes, cooking, and taking care of the Little guy. But please keep Jason in your thoughts and prayers and send good Engineering vibes his way.
