Last month, Rachel Hollis (of Girl, Wash Your Face fame) came to speak to us at my work. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of her. I like the fundamentals of her messages, but I don’t always agree that people just need to “try harder” to find success. The one part of her talk that did stick with me was that its never a bad time to start new goals. I naturally tend to be a very goal oriented person, so I feel like this is something I have always done, but I like the reminder that you don’t have to wait for a new year to work towards a better you.
The best way to achieve your goals is to have a plan that breaks down the goal into manageable steps. When I am training for a marathon, I have a coach build a calendar with 16 weeks worth of daily workouts. Going from casually running to racing 26.2 miles is only achievable when you work towards it each day.
When I’m not training for a race, it’s hard not to find myself a little lost with what I should be doing. I try to do a couple of days of strength training, a couple of days of running, some yoga, and rest each week. In order to plan out my week, and give myself little goals, I started using a weekly calendar.
Happy fall, y’all! This is my favorite time of year, and I’ve been so excited for the chance to change out my summer decor to cozy fall pieces! Fall is full of so many fun traditions and family time. I think that’s why so many people feel so nostalgic about the season.
For me, fall means running the Twin Cities Marathon, my birthday, football games with friends, and Thanksgiving with the family. If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time, you know those are all of my favorite things!
In order to celebrate the best time of year, I’ve created some cute printables for you guys. They are all free to download, so feel free to use as you would like. I love the idea of pinning them in a family space, or putting them in a fancy frame.
I’m feeling HOT! It’s the best time of year to relax and soak up the sun. Maybe plan a little summer mixer party with your friends? You can find all of my inspo for that over on my party pinterest board!
