Fitness Friday .. Get ready for summer!

I've started the count down.  There are 14 more days until Spring!
And ... there are only 106 more days until Summer!  ( Well, that's the count here in Australia! )

Which means there will be some requirement soon to remove a layer of clothing .. you know, the one that hides those sickly pale limbs ( well, that's what mine are like anyway .. ).  It will be time to pull out the bathing suit for the weekends at the beach or by the pool.  I'll admit that this makes me cringe a little ...

In preparation for this I have started thinking about how I am going to go about getting my body ready for the big reveal.  Alright, it's not really that dramatic but there are a few "adjustments" that I would like to make ...

Now is the perfect time to start thinking about what health and fitness goals you would like to set yourself for the next few months. 

I'm going to start my "Get Set for Summer" health and fitness party on the 1st of September.  Not that I'm going to go hell for leather in the eating department or sit on the couch for the next 2 weeks.  I will still be mindful of what choices I'm making ( who am I kidding .. I'll still be watching exactly what I eat and how much! ) and I will still be training ( but currently modified ) for the Stampede as that is only 3 weeks away! 

Come September I will be stepping it up and I would LOVE it if you would join me and together we can keep each other on track!  I know I've convinced you to join me!

This is what I'm going to be up to starting September. 
( Here's a post about setting goals if you need a bit of a reference point. )

Fitness Goal .. I want to get back into more running so that I can again run 10km in under an hour.  I will balance this with strength training 1 - 2 times each week.

Health Goal .. This one is really an ongoing commitment.  I will be again doing "Sugar Free September".  I did this last year successfully .. check out my wrap up here

Combining both of these and I'll be ready to wear that bikini by summer .. if I actually wore a bikini, which I don't, but I'd like to think that if I wanted to I could ... 

Have you set yourself some goals to get you ready for Summer? 
Will you be joining me? 
Let me know what you are planning ( if you want to that is! ) and come and say hi on my Facebook page and we can keep each other motivated!

I would love to do sugar free September too! Unfortunately my birthday is in September and I am sure someone will force birthday cake and a drink down my throat! Haha

@Jasmine Gala Jasmine, you can still do sugar free September. Give yourself an exemption to celebrate! I'm lucky no birthdays in September here! Vic x

I need to set some goals for Spring and Summer.

It's funny that it's suddenly getting warmer, making me realise that August will soon end and Spring will be upon us. Where on earth did that time go.

Even though I'm trying to be zen about my back injury (stitches) and my cold/flu I suspect I will have gone backwards a bit with fitness, so will need to refocus on that for a bit next.

@Deb Sounds like we need a plan! You might need to sit down and think about your new goals .. but not with Caramello ;)
