Confession: I missed my March goal call, but I have no excuse for skipping it other than the fact that I just did not feel like blogging. And that's OK, because I needed a break for the month and nothing exploded because I didn't post any updates here. Funny how that works, huh?! Anyway, so now it's April (that happened fast!) and I totally feel like blogging again (hence this post) and I'm going to jump back in with my April goal call. For those of you who are unfamiliar with my "goal call" posts, it's simply a way for me to share my monthly goals with y'all and also a simple tool to help hold myself accountable — which is something we all need when it comes to setting and achieving goals.
Hi! Hello! Are we six days into February ALREADY? That seems pretty impossible, since it was just January 1st, like, three days ago. But, whatever ... I guess I can't really argue with the calendar. Anyways ... as I mentioned in my first "Goal Call" post of the year, it's one of my goals to check in here each month with updates on the mini, monthly goals I'm working on. January certainly flew by and it involved a good amount of running for me (which means I achieved at least one of my fitness goals for the month), but there were some other areas that fell short and that I can definitely use February to work on.
Hello hungry friends and happy 2017! I hope your year is off to an excellent start and that you've already begun to log lots of miles (if that's what you want to do, that is)! My 2017 has been good so far, but I'd be lying if said getting back into an early-morning workout routine after almost 2 weeks of vacation hasn't been a struggle. So that's definitely something to work on! And speaking of working on things, that leads me to the gist of today's post.
One of the funny things about health and fitness — that I think we all forget too often — is that we are not alone. Yes, we all have different journeys and obstacles to overcome, but many times we all have similar struggles, too. I was reminded of this a few weeks ago when I was talking to my cousin. We share similar interests — nutrition, running, wellness, etc. — and were chatting about healthy eating habits.
