September Goals Check In #1

Well, my loves. We are already a week into September. Can you believe it? I can't. I can't believe it is even September. The year is three quarters of the way done!

I have decided that if I am going to stick to my goals this month, I need to be accountable. And the best way I know how to stay accountable? Write it out on the internet, for the whole world to see.


Here's a little progress report about how things have been going.
  • Blog more here. About my struggles, what I am eating, how I am working out, etc. etc. TAKE PICTURES. Because I am totally failing at the pictures thing.  So far, so good. I am blogging more, right? And I am trying to make it good content. Feedback!
  • Attend every boot camp. This is Monday (Lower Body / Cardio), Tuesday (Upper Body / Cardio), and Thursday (Abs / Core / Cardio). Try and take my cousin's advice and do arms again on Friday. Haven't missed one yet. Actually looking forward to tomorrow's class. It is so nice to walk away, sweaty as all hell, knowing that I just kicked old Jessica's ass. 
  • No more soda. No excuses. It is not nutritious. It is not good for my teeth or my health. JUST STOP DRINKING IT. I had to get tough love a bit, right there. I was channeling Dakota. (Not sure who Dakota is? Read about him here) Have had a couple. So.. fail. 
  • Eat better. I am not sure if I want to go back to counting calories because it is not something I am fond of, but I need to just straight up not eat crap food. I will not eat food that makes me feel guilty. How about that? I have been trying..but I am still giving into my urges too much. I am going to take the coming week and try and not eat out at all.. no soda.. just clean food. 
  • Lose 10 pounds. I am interested in what I can with the boot camp working out as hard as I do and eating better. I will be doing the best I can, that's for damn sure. I have lost about a pound so far. I am putting this as success.. but I have to keep it up. This will get better as I get better with my food intake as well.

Well, there you have it folks. I am a positive person, so I will say I am heading in the right direction, but really I have a long ways to go. But, every time I get up and go workout, or choose water over soda, or make any healthy choice, it is still better than the old me and millions of other people. So I'm going to be positive.

But I will be cracking down this week on my food and soda!

How are your goals going?


  1. I struggle with trying to drink less soda as well. In my opinion, if you've managed to cut back at all, that's a win in my book! lol Congrats on keeping up with your boot camp and losing a pound! Keep up the great work!

  2. 10 pounds in one month? wow!! sounds like you're doing great with boot camp though.

  3. Good luck with everything! Drinking soda is a huge downfall for me too. BOO!

  4. Losing 10 lbs seems tough, I hope you can do it!

  5. Kicking soda was really hard for me too. I started by drinking flavored soda water, then eventually I switched to just plain water with fruit in it.Good luck and thanks for adding your post at Stay Fit Sunday! -Monika
