Some of these might be hard to reach but I feel like I am at the stage where I need to push myself. And hopefully my alcohol ban will help me reach these.
I am doing a plank & squats challenge. So by the end of the month I will be able to hold a plank for 5 minutes and do 200 squats. I am a little skeptical about these but I am going to give it a go. Time to start doing something other then running. And after flashing my tummy to all the hockey girls last night I really need to start working on my tummy. Not to mention I blinded them with how white my tummy is. It hasn't seen daylight since I was about 14!
I got some great running advice last night and I am going to increase my running by 2km each week. I am starting this Sunday by running 12km. So by the end of August I will be running 18km. WOW!! That doesn't seem possible at the moment either. This goal may be adjusted to 1km a week. Will see how I go and let you know.
As for my weight loss goal for August. Well I am going to really try to lose 5.9kg. Which would put me at 80kg. Now given that it has just taken me 12 weeks to lose this same amount it is also a pretty big goal. But I am re committed to pulling my finger out and losing this last 15kg. Hopefully with the above exercises, the alcohol ban & watching everything that goes into my mouth I can achieve all this.
These all didn't seem that scary until I wrote them down. Now I am thinking I may have bitten off more then I can chew. I am not going to beat myself up if I don't achieve all these but I am going to give it a red hot go. And if I need any inspiration I will get it from the size 14 shorts I ordered yesterday that I am sure I don't fit into now but hope to very soon. I will let you know when they come.
This is what will get me there! Think I may need to print this out and put it on the fridge.
Has anyone else set themselves some challenges for August? Do you set big goals or smaller more achievable goals??
