April Goals and Intentions

Happy April happy spring my friends!

Once upon a time, I used to set monthly goals for myself and share them on here. Recently, I  realized I really need to get back to that. Like… stat. It was a great way to hold myself accountable for all of the life things. I’m taking a couple weeks off from training before Zooma Training kicks off, so I want to try some new workouts.

Intention wise, it’s about balance. Because of the travel that hubs and I have, the family that’s coming to town, I want to make sure that we make time for the three of us, time for hubs and I and time for myself. Balancing those three things is never easy but it’s most important when we’re the busiest.

  1. Work out four times per week. I’m not training for anything just yet – my next race is a 5k in May and the Zooma 10k in June. I want 2 of those workouts to be running, 1 to be yoga and 1 to be spinning ideally. BUT I just bought Beachbody on demand for myself so on days when I can’t fit in cardio, i have strength options.
  2. Do a mobile boot camp. I’ve been tracking my phone usage – and I spend a lot of time on my phone. Mindless time mostly, but I read about an app on Ashley’s blog and I’ve been trying it out and I think I’m ready to do the boot camp.
  3. Take a design course. My designer at work is on maternity leave so I’ve had to dabble in a few edits and creating a few pieces of my own. Canva and adobe both some great training resources so I would love to take one just to expand my knowledge base.
  4. Write more. I keep setting 1 – 2x/week goals for myself. It shouldn’t be hard. But it has been. I have a little bit of free time this month despite family visiting two weeks, hubs having a 4 day trip and me spending my birthday in Texas. I really want to take advantage of some of this time to get writing in and get back to an editorial calendar. Once I get a writing schedule and an editorial calendar back in place, I’ll be back in business. 
  5. Make self-care a priority. There are two things I consider self-care – yoga and an afternoon of me-time. I’ve been reprioritizing yoga, but it’s tough to get in some solo time that’s not solely for working out. With all that we have going on (family visiting two weekends, a business trip and hubs being away for four days) I need to make sure that my introverted self doesn’t forget about self-care which is imperative for resetting myself.

What are your goals for April?
