This past weekend I took time for a major inner reflection of my lifestyle and what my personal goals are for life.
I sat down and took a long look in the mirror reflecting on if I am where I want to be in my life at this time. We are working on starting a family and am I happy where I am at, that I am fully am to bring a child into our lives. My answer was truly a slap in the face, because no.. I have been tons of talk/ planning but am I truly doing my plan, and I am not.
Jrod and my two year anniversary is coming in 2 weeks and I am exactly 20 pounds heavier than I was on my wedding day. Is this the best/ healthiest me, NO! , and know I need to get my butt in gear and fully change my lifestyle. It’s hard to see Jrod eat everything he wants and get to workout while at work, he has lost more weight than he gained in Texas and is back to his Navy Seal/ Hawaii weight. Sigh…
Tonight I listened to the first two podcast of Chalene Johnson’s new podcast Turbo Charged Life, and they were amazing. She completely touched on things I am have been thinking about changing in my life, and feel I now have a better plan.
This is a perfect month to work on myself because Jrod already warned me that he will be checked out for the next three months playing Destiny.
Goals for the rest of the year, all of these are self-improvement:
read two self improvement books
The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy
Tranquilista by Kimberly Wilson
Restart my half marathon training for Baltimore Half Marathon in October
Restart PiYO training by Chalene Johnson, I got through a month of it before I got really sick for two weeks. At the time I had lost 10 inches overall, so I feel this is 100% a go! Also my running and knees improved by leaps and bounds.
Lastly I am going to be super studying my ACE Fitness Personal Training items, my test is the week before the Baltimore Half Marathon so it’s time to get really going on this. My overall goal with this is to become a personal trainer along with getting my group fitness certification so I will have a job that will travel with us on our Navy adventures.
My overall goal for September is to better my health, along with myself as a person.
What is your personal reflection that is happening with summer coming to an end?
