Goal Setting In July

Hey everyone,

Can you believe its already July? We are already half way through the year and half way through summer break, craziness! I know we make resolutions at the beginning of the year but along the way things change, we may have a switch in our life, or  switch in our priorities. Near the end of each month, I sit down and make 3-4 goals for the next month, sometimes they are really small things and sometimes they are life altering. It helps give me purpose and direction for the next month. I am going to share my goals to maybe help inspire you and also keep me accountable.


Prior to my second pregnancy and my horrible ongoing bout with plantar fasciitis, I used to love to run. I ran track in high school and in college and it became my "me time" so to speak. Running just helps me clear my mind and releases stress. This month, I want to force myself to get out there and run again. If I run 4 to 5 times a week about 2.5-3 miles each time, then I will hit 50 miles before the month is over. If you aren't a runner, you could also do your 50 miles walking in July.


I used to compete in fitness competitions and when I did, it forced me to be extremely me organized with my food and meal planning. I am a very competitive person so whenever I don't have something I am striving for I tend to fall off the wagon a bit. We also have really hectic schedules so it is easy to get used to eating on the run. I am hoping to force myself to get back on the wagon and get better with planning our meals so we can get back to eating better.


This might seen like a simple goal but being a mom to a really active 8 year old and a 1 year old is extremely time consuming and takes up every free second I have each day. I love to read and I am one of those people that truly begins to get consumed in the books I read. I would like to take the time this month even if its just 30 min a couple days a week to let myself enjoy something that I never take the time to do any more.


As you can probably tell from all of my previous posts lol, I have a hard time taking time for myself. I love blogging and I think of it as my virtual journal, whether one person reads it or 200 people, I really don't mind either way. There are always a million things on my mind that I want to blog and share on my YouTube channel but I rarely make the time to do stuff like that. I want to try to blog at least a couple times each week but more if possible. 

I hope you all are having a great week so far and that this post inspires you to set your own goals for the month of July!



  1. That's a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I will start my goals tomorrow with walking once a day and preparing meals. What are some good things to eat?
