May Fitness Goals: Revisited

With the month of May behind us and June in full force, it’s time to take a look back at my monthly goals. I truthfully don’t know how the month passed so quickly, but I will be honest and say I didn’t work on these goals enough. I need to get better at working on them daily instead of just weekly or so.

But regardless! Here’s a look back at my May Fitness Goals:

  • Drink. water. –Definitely still a work in progress! I am drinking more, but not all day and it tends to be early morning and then after dinner. Need to spread it out. It should be easier with the weather getting warmer!
  • Exercise 5 times a week– I didn’t really keep track of the workouts but I know I never took off more than 2 days in a row.
  • Walk or Run outside 2 times a week. – I haven’t been running because of the logistics of getting to the park and such, but I’ve done so well getting out for walks! We actually averaged 4 walks a week outside!
  • Push Ups– 25 on my toes.- Complete! But not as apart of a workout… just when they’re done on their own Winking smile
  • Plank– 2 minutes. – Done. But, I didn’t practice and just busted out 2 minutes last night. Sort of defeats the purpose of a goal…
  • Continue to eat fruits and veggies – Doing pretty well with these!

So there you have it! Doing pretty well with the goals. They definitely keep me accountable!

  1. Nice job! I really want to set some health goals once I have control over my own kitchen again. That’s been so hard for me! I can barely hold plank for 2 minutes so that’s great! I should really do more planks!

      I bet you’d surprise yourself after doing Insanity how well you can hold a plank!! PS Go to bed 😉

  2. I’ve been working towards a 2 minute plank too– building up and at 1:15! Def does not come natural to me! haha!
    So glad it’s summer and we can get outside!!!

  4. Nice! Holding planks is my least favorite thing ever. I don’t think I’ve ever held one for 2 minutes before (of course, I’ve never tried, so there’s that..), but congrats!

  5. I have definitely lost some of my plank timing over the past few months. I used to be really good about incorporating core work after my runs (usually 2-3 times a week) but have been slacking and when I went to complete three 1 minute planks last week, I noticed. Monthly goals are something I need to set up as well. Nice work!!

      I hear ya! It can be a shock when we realize our strength is gone after not doing something enough (not gone, but not there if you know what I mean!)

  6. I would love to be able to knock out a 2 minute plank…pretty sure we’re still sitting at like 30 seconds, ha! One of these days!

      Honestly I thought that was me too but give it a try! You’d be surprised if you have a number in your head lol

  7. You did an awesome job with your goals! Way to go!

    I feel you on the drinking water, I tend to do the same thing and especially so in winter as it’s cold! Right now I’m drinking hot water instead of tea because I’ve got to do a fasted blood test and it’s way too cold for cold water, haha!

      Oh I drink a lot of hot water in the winter! Sometimes I just don’t want tea but cold water isn’t appealing at all!
