July Goals 2013

Yes, yes I know I know. Nine days in and just now posting my goals. I apologize! But, I’m here now so here we go! Let’s review my June goals:


1.) Heal my IT band:(C)  Eh. yes and no. It still bothers me but I can run on it. It aches after and sometimes my hip aches when I run longer than 4 miles, but I am managing.

2.) Get on track with Dumbo challenge training. (C-) Getting there. I have upped my mileage to 7, but I need to start skipping and run 9 next time, then 11 and 13 to get ready for dumbo. it’s so close!


3.) Get back to my happy weight. (B-) Yes and no. I did lose a couple pounds but I still have a couple more to go.

4.) Stop Worrying. (A-)  Happy to report that that this one has gotten much much better! Not perfect, but I am coming to grips with it.

Not my best month goal wise, but they can’t all be great right? I try to find a balance between hard to reach and not out of reach, but sometimes I fall short and that’s ok. This is why some months you will see me repeat some of the same goals again. I will do the same this month.


July goals:

1.) Heal my IT band: ‘nuff said

2.) Get back to my happy weight: again…

3.) Go back to body pump: I was enjoying this class until I hurt my IT band and I stopped going. I need to go back!

4.) Continue with my leg strengthening exercises: I have been told to do some certain exercises to help with strength and I want to keep it up to fast track my healing.

  1. Yup, healing my IT band is on my list as well. I’m doing squats, lunges, Pilates and hip flexor exercises, but I can’t do them too fast since I’m sure I’d injure myself all over again.

  2. Great job Heather! I do exactly what you are doing when I don’t obtain a goal…keep at it until I succeed! Hope you are enjoying Destin and the weather is cooperating! 🙂

  3. You’ve got some great persistence, which I really admire. I truly believe if at first you don’t succeed, try again. Unless you set lowball goals for yourself, you won’t meet every single one all the time. As long as you’re working towards something and don’t give up, then you’ve got the right attitude about it.

  4. Stupid IT bands! I really hope yours gets better soon.

  5. I try not to beat myself up about it too much. But, that’s hard. My dad always said no matter what we have to “keep on keepin’ on,” so I try to keep that in mind as well. Sometimes the best things in life are actually the things that happen in between all the plans we make 🙂

  6. I continue moving forward until I reach it 🙂

  7. Takes courage saying your goals and being honest with your own progress. Don’t overthink and keep achieving toward your goals 🙂 Cheers from a fellow chronic worrier~
