Healthy Living Weekly Post: June Plans

Is it just me, or does it seem like the month of May flew by? With Memorial Day weekend upon us, I am looking ahead to my plans for June. It is going to be a busy, fun-filled month with a trip to see three of my nieces in their dance recital, a visit from the twins and then possibly one from Pun'kin Natashia (she's still working out her summer schedule, I think). I'll also be coaching in the Finding Photo Freedom workshops (the new students' classroom as well as the alumni classroom), meeting with the Ladies' Ministry Leadership Team at our church as we make plans for the summer and fall (I've recently been asked to join the team!), tutoring a young lady in math one day a week, and scrapping every chance I get.

Here's how I did on my goals this past week:
*Ride the exercise bike for 30 minutes at least three times.
  YES - 3 times
*30 minute strength training routine at least three times.
  YES - 3 times
*Complete stability exercises at least once.
  YES - 1 time
*Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day.
  OK - 2 days, at least 48 ounces all other days
*Drink no more than one 12 ounce Coca-Cola per day.
  OK - 2 days, only 2 cokes the other days

I was thrilled with my exercise routine this past week (3 days of riding the stationary bike, 3 days of strength training, and 1 day of stability exercises), so I am planning to stick with that routine throughout the month of June. I'll continue with my weekly healthy living post, however, rather than a weekly update on my personal goals, I'll be writing on various healthy living topics and books. Next week I'll be sharing some insights from the 21 Days to Better Fitness book I'm currently reading.

Anyone else looking forward to a busy, fun-filled June?


  1. Oh yes! Busy, but fun. I can't believe summer is upon us already!!

  2. That looks like a list of successes, yay you :)

    I can't believe we're nearly in June either.... Only 2 more months till my boy leaves primary school! :( But also, only 2 more months till our LA trip :)

  3. Yes, time is just flying by! I have a few things coming up in June - mainly going down to Orlando to meet with recruiters and (fingers crossed) maybe an interview or two. Your health posts have inspired me - I worked out every day this week! Feels fantastic. :)

  4. kudos on meeting those goals...and sounds like a very full summer! see you in the classroom.

  5. Well done you! keep up the good work. Apart from a visit to the UK for ten days( and that WILL be busy!)no other plans for June
