Monthly Goals Overview:
- Limiting Screen Time. I wanted to make some changes this month and it started with my social media cleanse.
We are currently 8 days into the month of July. Goals are still being set and worked towards despite the lack of me posting them. I have really been living in the present moment and on a social media cleanse. I am active on social media but not as much as I was before our newest addition arrived. One of my main goals this month is to remove myself from social media in order to be more attentive and present in life. We too often get wrapped up in social media stories, updates, and timeline feeds that we lose track of time.
- More Vacations. Hubby and I decided that we shouldn’t wait until certain times of the year to plan trips. We are just returning from a road trip with our little ones. Baby Andrew did so well on our trip and we even had a chance to visit with family along the way.
This includes day and weekend trips. This is truly something my husband and I have enjoyed over the years. This is definitely a lifestyle we are passing on to our children. Vacations do not have to wait until select times of the year. Planning more trips is on my list of to-do’s. Local adventures and road trips included.
- Home Workouts. I am 8 weeks PP and have been cleared to resume my normal workout regimen.
I downloaded Katy Hearn’s app, FIT by Katy which has a workout generator based on your workout environment, home or the gym. The workout generator creates workout plans based on the muscle group you’d like to focus on. This is perfect for me since I am home with the kids and it’s impossible to make it to anyone’s gym when breastfeeding on demand.
- Morning Runs. Starting today, 1-3 miles beginning at sun rise each morning.
Running is my new outlet and a perfect way to incorporate working out and enjoying nature. I’m also preparing for my first run, Remembering Our Angels 5k Walk/Run which will be on Oct. 5, 2019. This is the 1st Annual Remembering Our Angels 5k Walk/Run hosted by Alaina’s Gift Inc., a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping others who have suffered infant and/or pregnancy loss. It is funded solely from donations.
My husband and I will be walking in memory of our Angel, Hope. We hope that our friends and family will sign up to walk with us for this great cause as well. Sponsors are also needed, please spread the word and share the event.
