July Goals + a June Recap

Check out my goals for the month of July and see how I did on my goals for June!

Follow I Am Teacher Fit on Twitter

It’s hard to believe that we’re already facing the first Monday of July and Independence Day is tomorrow! This year is flying by–as I’ve mentioned each month when I sit down to write my goals. Even with the days flying by, I feel like I’m ticking a lot of things off my goals list this year. Let’s see how I did in June!
June Goals

ONE // Catch up on housecleaning

Grade: A

Finally being out of school gave me enough time to get my house clean!

TWO // Read two more books

Grade: C

Well, I read one more book. I’m in the middle of the second. Hmm… Wonder if I’ll get through my summer reading list

THREE // Plan the first month of training for the Run Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon

Grade: A+

I posted my Wine & Dine Half Marathon Training Plan for the first month, and have already planned the first week of August. My schedule will change beginning the second week of August, so moving forward from there will be more of a challenge.

FOUR // Find an eye doctor and schedule an appointment

Grade: A+

Did this! Even ordered contacts and I can SEE again!

FIVE // Eat clean 90% of the time

Grade: A

For being my first month out of school, I did a pretty good job of sticking to my prepped meals and not eating junk all day. I did start tracking my food/macros a couple of weeks in, just to keep a better handle on things.

July Goals

ONE // Stick to my training program

I know I’m probably not going to make every workout I’ve scheduled, but I want to be as committed as I can be. I’m ready, I’m excited, and I can’t wait to check off my first training run (today!). See my plan for the first five weeks of half marathon training!

TWO // Put together my classroom

I can get the keys to my new classroom next week and I want to get all the organizational stuff out of the way early so I’m not scrambling in August.

THREE // Get a BUNCH of future blog posts scheduled

To put it simply, I want to write and schedule as many posts as possible before school starts so I don’t lag on blogging and can spend appropriate time promoting myself and interacting with other bloggers!


Related: Balance.

FOUR // Enjoy vacation!

This probably seems like a goal that could achieve itself, but I wanted to include it anyway. We are going on vacation in the early stages of my half marathon training, so I don’t want to beat myself up for enjoying the time away and taking my mind OFF of running and training.

FIVE // Eat clean 90% of the time

I think this will always be a goal. I tend to go overboard with mindless snacking in the summer, so I need to post it for accountability!

Question: What goals have you set for the month of July?
