Hello my loves and welcome to my June health & fitness goals. Eeek, I am so excited for this month. Last month I started getting back into my fitness journey / routine after setting myself some goals and focusing more on working out and eating well, plus cutting out a lot of the unhealthier foods I have been consuming. I’ve began to focus more on eating what feels good to me, foods with high nutritional value, putting foods into my body which are natural and designed to make us feel good and healthy, and I’m very keen to workout more so I can have the body of my dreams. Yes please. As I started up my fitness journey once again last month, it’s time for me to set my goals for June and I am so excited to have a whole month ahead of me really focusing on taking care of myself and working on my health and fitness. Yay!!! My goals are pretty similar to ones I’ve set previously, so these are really conscious lifestyle changes I want to focus on implementing and making the ‘norm’ for me. Of course I’m always going to have treat days and ensure I’m enjoying the foods I’m consuming but most importantly, I want to focus purely on what feels good for me. And right now, these goals reflect that.
June Health and Fitness Goals 2019
Continue cutting down on fizzy – I have really achieved this goal of cutting down on fizzy recently. I used to have it pretty much every single day whereas now I just have it a couple of times a week maximum really, although every week is different. I want to stick to this goal and keep to having fizzy as a treat on special occasions, but on day to day life opt for healthier choices such as water or juice.
Drink two flasks of water everyday – This is a goal I have been focusing a lot on recently and been doing really well with. Drinking water just makes me feel good, and really feels like an act of self love as I’m taking care of myself and my body. I’m now also putting lemon and orange slices into my water which gives it a nice fruity taste and makes it extra healthy!
Focus on eating as much fruit and veg as possible – Normally I’ve viewed eating fruits and veg as a chore, the thought of a ‘healthy dinner’ has never excited me whereas my Mum would happily just eat a whole plate of broccoli for her tea if she could! She loves veggies and now, I’m beginning to love them too. I want to fill my meals with alll the fruits and veg and all the nutrients because it feels so good. Fruits and vegetables are so good for us, each one with different qualities to really benefit our physical and mental well being. This goal is definitely one I am most excited about!!!
Continue cutting down on chocolate and dairy / cheese – Just as with fizzy, I don’t want to cut these things out completely (for obvious reasons, chocolate is life), I just don’t want to be having them every single day!
Cut down on snacking – Okay guys, I say ‘snacking’ because it’s something I do a lot and I realised as I was cutting down on fizzy and chocolate, I was replacing them with other things… like biscuits and crisps. Which is FINE, but I don’t want to be doing that everyday because I know more often than not I’m just eating these things for the sake of it. ‘Oh, I’m settling down and watching TV for the night? I must have something to eat whilst I watch!!!’ I really think this is holding me back from having the body of my dreams and I’ll feel much better about myself if I just do this on the special occasion, and not the everyday norm.
7 Minute workout 5 times a week – Last month my goal was to workout for 7 minutes every single day and naturally, that didn’t happen. Life does get in the way, so this month I’ve given myself some breathing space by changing that goal to be the same workout but just five times a week which is still a great amount, but at least it gives me those two days off where I may not have time to workout (for example before starting work) or where I may just want to chill and have a lazy day. If I workout less or more than this however, that’s totally fine too but at least I have a nice, manageable goal for myself which I’m excited to focus on achieving.
Stretch regularly – Again last month my goal was to stretch every day but this time I’m setting myself an easygoing goal to ‘stretch regularly’ because as mentioned before I realllly want to be flexible and now for the reason of aligning my body! Mack told me how when she did hot yoga, she really felt the benefits from the experience and how it aligned her body, which sounds amazing so I’m really hoping to stretch more often to achieve that same alignment.
Walk four times a week – Instead of setting myself the goal of walking every other day because everyday is different, my goal is to go for walks at least four times a week because I’d really love to make walking more of a habit. I have been walking more and more recently which feels so good, every time it feels like a breath of fresh air for my soul and what a great way to exercise!!! There are so many benefits to walking, it’s a great way to clear our minds, gain clarity, connect to nature and see the world, enjoy alone time or time with loved ones and so much more!!!
Meditate daily – Like I said in my previous health and fitness goals post, I believe mental health is just as important as physical health and I truly believe that meditation is so good for the mind which is why I’d love to make this a daily routine for me!
Gratitude Journal Daily – I believe in having an attitude of gratitude because I think it’s such a positive way to live life and again, I think keeping a gratitude journal daily will be wonderful for my overall well being and happiness.
