Personal Goals for August

Y'all, I failed on most of my goals last month. But you know what? That's OK. I was very busy and I didn't really expect to do that well. You know what else? That just means I need to work harder this month. And I'm fully prepared and excited to do that. So lets see what those goals are, shall we?
Spiritual:
Last month I was really excited to continue studying Proverbs with Good Morning Girls. But I failed during The Music Man. Miserably. I am on Proverbs 22 and they finished the book last week.

However, I am determined to catch up. It's only one chapter per day and they only study on week days so it really shouldn't be that hard to catch up.  They started Song of Solomon this week so I'm excited for that.

Physical:
I did terrible. Terrible. I didn't even keep up with the little daily Instagram challenges. I haven't logged into my fitness Instagram account in probably a month. But, again, I'm not too upset about it. And I'm going to get serious about my fitness and health now.

First of all, I am going to record everything I eat on My Fitness Pal and stay under my daily calorie goal. I will take my ItWorks greens daily and drink at least 64 ounces of water every day.

I'm also going to exercise 5 days per week starting next week when I get home from my work trip: 2 days of cardio and 3 days of strength training. For cardio, I'm going to try cardio dance videos I found on Youtube. I hate running and biking and doing any other cardio. I want to find something I like to do so I will be more likely to do it. And for strength training, I'll be doing Blogilates, of course.

Aside from actual workout sessions during the week, I also want to be active on the weekends. Whether that's just a long walk with Pearson and the dog or we go all out on an intense bike ride or hike, I don't want to sit around watching TV.

They say it takes about 12 weeks of living a healthy lifestyle before people notice a change, so my goal is that my clothes will fit better and I'll feel healthier and better about myself by Halloween.

Mental:
Last month I finished Someday, Someday, Maybe and started Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. I really wanted to be finished with Anne Frank by now but I just can't seem to get into it. Anyway, I'll finish it this month and I want to finish The Fault in Our Stars which I hear is a quick read so this goal should be easy. Then I'll only have one more to read for my personal challenge within the Literary Ladies Summer Book Challenge.

So there are my goals. I'm gonna get back on track with everything this month as things start to die down a bit. What goals have you set to better yourself this month? Thanks for reading!
