My husband and I will be going on a cruise again this winter, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! While I can usually avoid swimsuit season in the summer (yep, I do it pretty much every year…), I can’t avoid swimsuits on a cruise.
Last year, I won a giveaway on a blog for a gift card to Albion Fit. At the time, I was kicking booty and taking names at the whole weight loss thing, so I purchased their Icon Swimsuit in an XL (12-14). I have to be honest…I was afraid it was going to be too big by the time last year’s cruise came around. Well…I got a nice slice of humble pie when I didn’t lose a single pound last year, and because of that, my fun, new swimsuit sadly stayed home, while I wore an old swimsuit in the Caribbean.
This year, I’m not letting that happen. My goal is to fit in that swimsuit for the cruise and rock the heck out of it. I’m going to go back to the basics…baby steps. Every month, I’m going to make goals and Instagram my workouts like crazy, if y’all want to follow along.
Here’s my goals for the month of June…
I ended up purchasing a Polar HRM, which was meant to be my 230 lb. reward (oops!). I was hoping it would be a motivation tool, and so far, it has been. So my goal this month is to burn 300 calories in my workouts 5x/week. I want to get back into a routine, and this goal should be attainable for me.
I’m also including a cheat day per week. It gives me something to look forward to, but I will still log it in MyFitnessPal. That goes hand in hand with my third goal, which is to log my meals/exercise in MyFitnessPal every day.
Lastly, I will be completing Fitfluential’s Squat challenge. Basically, the goal is to squat as many times as you can per day. I’m a weirdo, because I LOVE squats. If you want to join in on the challenge, here’s the details on Fitfluential’s blog. You can also enter for a change to win a Polar HRM on their page!
I’ll let you guys know how everything goes next month. What type of goals are you setting lately in your weight loss/fitness journeys?
