Workin' It Wednesday - Summer Fitness Goals

This morning I stumbled upon Surfin' Through Second Grade's Linky party and knew I had to link up.  If you've been reading my blog, you know I'm all about my FitBit this year.  I'm so obsessed with it, it's sucking my iPhone battery dry ALL THE TIME - because I hook the FitBit under my shirt, and since it wouldn't be too lady like to be looking at it all the time, I instead am constantly turning on my bluetooth so that my phone will link up to update my steps... but it's worth it because it's SO motivating.  So here are my goals!

1.  Increase my daily steps to 15,000 - I've already set that goal on my FitBit, but now it's time to #StepItUp and meet that goal every day!  Today I'm 1,000 steps short, and my husband is working late - so I'll have to walk laps around my house since the baby is upstairs sleeping.  But I'm going to get those steps!  (Exciting side note: I've been "running" a bit during my walks - VERY short distances, but each day I try to do a bit longer.  I do the "run x amount of telephone poles" running plan...)

2.  Eat better.  I don't always eat that well, and I know myself well enough to know that I can't do a "diet".  I have been very successful in the past with making simple, small changes - things that are practically unnoticeable - changing white bread for wheat, adding spinach and tomatoes to my scrambled eggs instead of cheese... things like that where I still feel like I'm eating, but am making smarter choices.

3.  REST.  I think it's just as important to work on your mental fitness and health as it is to work on physical fitness and health.  So after all my walking, I also want to make sure I rest and turn off my brain for a little... :)

  1. I am so guilty of not doing number 3! I have a really hard time just relaxing!! Summer is so necessary for me to recharge after a busy year. I need to look into this FitBit that I hear everyone talking about. Thank you so much for linking up!
