Go to bed at 10 pm each night.Grade: B. I started out really strong at the beginning of May, but as the weeks passed, I did start to slack a bit. But overall, I’ve made significant progress and will keep it up moving forward!
Keep up weekly meal planning. Grade: B. I did a great job with planning meals, including making a casserole that lasted a few days, but Bret did a lot of the cooking so I didn’t make as much as I originally planned. The best part of having a holiday weekend is that there will be leftovers for a few days!
Practice 15 minutes of yoga daily.Grade: C. Once again, I started really strong and it just became such a chore to try to get done each night. I was no longer looking forward to practicing, which was the opposite of what I wanted.
Focus on strengthening my core. Ever since giving birth to Baby E, my core has taken quite a beating! Not only did I have diastasis recti while pregnant, but I had an unexpected C-section that took over 8 weeks to recover. I’ve taken a core restore class to address some of my issues, but I have to admit that I haven’t been doing the daily exercises that were recommended in that class. Now that June is here, I’m making the commitment to work on my core daily. I may sign up for some type of postpartum program as further motivation!
Enjoy my vacation to the fullest. Work has been stressful, home life has been monotonous, and I just want to get away and enjoy time with my family! I’m looking forward to good food, beautiful hikes and trail runs, and making more memories! This goal is all about taking care of my mental health and focusing on what’s really important!
Go to bed at 10 pm each night. I’m going to keep working on this to make it a habit, focusing on weeknights. Baby E’s wake-up time has been so unpredictable, and getting to bed early is the only thing that I can control!
How would you grade your May fitness and wellness activities? What are you working on for June?
