Friday Focus, August 30th

Happy Friday friends!  Yes!  We finally got made it to Friday!  Is anyone else feeling like this year is just flying by?  No?  Just me?  I am feeling a little frustrated that I haven't made more progress, but I can't change the past, only the future.  Of late, I really have felt like I'm floundering and, honestly, I'm looking forward to the new changes WW is coming out with for the new year.  In the meantime, I've decided that I'm going to really focus on what my cardiologist suggested and I'm going to continue with WW with a low carb emphasis.  I know there are going to be times, like the meal I made on Wednesday and Thursday nights, both meals had rice.  Here are my goals for the month of September:

1. Water intake of at least 90 oz. per day.
2. Track, track, track!  
3. Cardio, at least 3 days per week, and strength training, even if it's body weight, at least 2 days per week.
4. Take care of myself.  By this, I mean, I will take time to sit in a sauna, take an Epsom salt bath, get a massage, and things like this. 
5. Focus on the lower carb option.  A YouTuber I follow is doing a plan where she's sticking with her points allowance, but also only 33 carbs. 

What are your goals for the month of September? I would love for you to share them with me and helping me stay accountable! 


  1. Yes, this year is flying by! And I have nothing to show for it, which is the most frustrating part.

  2. No, it’s not you...I blinked in January and now it’s september!

    My goals are similar to yours for the month of September. Mine are....Track, keep calories in check, lose weight...even if it’s only an ounce, exercise at least three times a week, at least 5k steps a day (which is a stretch for someone that works a desk job and then has a 1.5 hour commute each way to work)

    1. I am blessed that I no longer have a commute like that, but I can completely relate! Mine has been from 1 to 2 hours long depending on what part of the metroplex I was working in. I talked to my DH and I think we are going to start getting up earlier again and going for a walk first thing in the morning. Even if it's only 30 minutes, it'll help me get my steps in each day. He's been amazingly supportive in this endeavor.
