Because June was so crazy-pants, I skipped making any sort of health or fitness goals. I figured getting through moving into a new house unscathed was enough of a goal to take me through those 30 days. But here we are, closing in on the end of June and my life is starting to settle back down. Reviewing my yearly goals yesterday really got me back in the goat-setting mindset. Time to set my July goals! In July, I’d like to:
- Have three major sweat sessions per week.
- Eat four meatless dinners per week.
- Write down five things I’m grateful for everyday.
Just like I did with my May goals, I’ve created a goal chart to help keep me on track throughout the month. I never wrote about my final results from May, but let me tell you, that chart was a success! It’s amazing how motivated I am by a silly gold star. So motivated, in fact, that
I actually went I sent Babyface digging around the depths of our moving boxes to find those stickers so I’d be ready for July!
Interestingly enough, the stars and chart were actually much more motivating than the monetary rewards. If you don’t remember: I gave myself a dollar for each day I hit all my goals. On the days I didn’t, the dollar went into savings. I think I ended up with $22 at the end of May, and honestly, I haven’t even used the money! Or thought about it! I think it’s probably still sitting in the jar in some box somewhere. I’m all about the gold stars.
I am changing it up a bit for July, because my goals are weekly. So instead of a daily check-off, I have a weekly tally. If I hit my goals at the end of each week, it’s a gold star for me!
If you want to play along, I’ve posted the PDF of the chart for downloading. Go get yourself some stars!
