I’m so excited to start a new month! I’m also really happy that summer is nearly here, it’s by far my favorite season. Nicer weather combined with longer days means I get to be outside more!
June marks a milestone for me in goal-setting: this month, both my goals for sticking to my calories and my step count are where I’ve been building up to all year. Going forward, this months’ goals in those categories will be my for-life goals for myself. I also have some goals for June that are mostly geared toward helping me hit those two!
Stay within my allotted calories 80% of the time. This is how I want to get used to eating going forward. This goal does give me six days in June when I can go over my calories, but I’m going to try my best to space those days out and not use them all up at the very beginning of the month.
Average 10,000 steps per day. While this seems like a big goal, I actually hit it last month – my final average for May was 10,060 steps! This gives me confidence that I can do this again in June.
Have a salad for dinner one day per week. Now that the weather is warming up, I’m finding myself gravitating toward lighter dinners, and salads are a great way to get in all my extra veggies. Combined with our one day a week of having fish (yep, I’ve been keeping that up for the last few months!), this goal should help me with meal-planning as well as inspiring me to try some new recipes for salads.
Write at least one blog post per week. Since I tanked this goal last month, I’m going to let my goal-related posts count at least for this month. But I really do want to write more often!
