Thank you to Amanda @ Running With Spoons for this Thinking Out Loud link up! Sometimes my TOL posts are random thoughts and sometimes they have a theme.
Today's theme is....
We have a lot on our plate this summer, but I thought I would share some of my personal goals I have for myself this summer. I'll check in with you in July and let you know how I'm doing! Here are some things I hope to achieve...
I started studying for this last summer. I will be taking my exam this summer. I don't know how long it will take for me to get my results. Even after I pass my test and am a certified personal trainer, I will have to purchase insurance, develop a business plan... all that fun stuff. I am excited and nervous!
We are dedicated to helping Christmas to STOP PEEING EVERYWHERE. One step we took is purchasing Feliway, which will hopefully work. Also, I think he needs some more play stimulation from us. He gets a lot of love and attention but not a lot of play time. This is getting fixed! I already started having one play session with him a day, but when I have more time this summer, I want to do 3 play sessions!
I feel like I was in the best shape of my life last May/June and then it just went downhill from there due to my knee. I know I can't always be in the best shape of my life, but I want to get back there! I have had too many rest days and too many mornings on the arc trainer. I want to run up hills, jump rope, and do burpees like all the cool kids!
I am sooooooo MIA with my friends during the school year since my primary goal every evening is to put on my pajamas as soon as possible. I just don't understand people who can actually go out and do things on a "school night" (or a "work night"... whatever it is!).
I was really speedy. I want to be speedy again. That is all.
Somehow, I have to balance my need for speed, hills, and jumps with the healing of my knee. I just have to take things one day at a time and listen to my body.
PS. Note: I am officially on SUMMER VACATION TIME, meaning, I will rarely be up in the 5 'o clock hour to post my blog! I will post it whenever I wake up in the morning. Could be 7 am... could be Noon! That is the beauty of summer vacation. But I still plan to post every day, so do not fear if my blog is not posted first thing in the morning (I know it's the first thing you check for, before you pee, feed your fur babies, or get coffee!!!) it is coming eventually!)
What are your summer goals?
