Did you make goals for yourself at the beginning of the year? Whether you make resolutions or set goals (I prefer setting goals), sticking to them isn’t always easy. And now that we’re well past a quarter into the year, it’s a good time to check yourself and how well you’re doing.
Personal Fitness Goals
Losing my mom last August affected me in a number of ways. One of the biggest changes it brought to the forefront for me was my perspective on health. Unfortunately, in my mom’s case, cancer doesn’t discriminate against healthy or unhealthy hosts. But, for myself and Colby, I want us both to be healthy. If nothing else, or kids deserve that much from us.
Therefore, I was able to convince Colby to two do things that have really helped us work towards achieving our health goals. First, I signed us up for a 5K! We ran out first (and only) one about three years ago, so I felt like it was time to do another one. Besides, this one supports research for rare cancers. Therefore, I’m running in memory of my mom and that makes me feel good.
But, have you ever trained for a 5K? I mean, going from not running at all, to running 3.1 miles in under 45 minutes. Not to mention, we’re not in the best of shape. At least, not yet. But we are passionately working on it! We have been walking/jogging three times a week and working out in our makeshift garage gym for over a month now. And, yes, it smells like a gym in there.
I know I can get sweaty, but when you add Colby, and at least two of our girls most nights, it can get funky in there! This is why we made sure to grab plenty of deodorant at CVS during our weekly visit! With a whole line of premium, Unilever deodorant products, you don’t have to sweat working towards your new fitness goal. Each will keep you protected from wetness and odor as you branch out and make fitness fun again!
With Dove Dry Spray for women and Degree Dry Spray for men, we’re both able to workout without all the wetness. Fortunately, CVS is currently offering Buy 1, Get 1 50% OFF WITH CARD AXE®, Dove or Degree® Dry Spray Antiperspirant products so we can stock up for the rest of our training! The girls are extremely grateful and I’m happy because Unilever Dry Sprays won’t leave white marks or yellow stains on our clothing.
Oh, and that other thing I talked Colby into? A healthier diet free from processed foods and lots of sugars. In the past 5 weeks, he’s lost 20 pounds and I’ve lost 10. He’s at his lowest weight in over two years! We have two more weeks until our 5K and then we leave the following week for an island vacation with our kids. All of these things work together to keep us focused on our fitness goals!
