Isn’t it wonderful when the school year ends, summertime arrives and we can finally slow down a bit? Yes! Although our slowing down still means that I’m driving my sons to football and cross country practice most mornings … so, slow is relative. I do love that the boys staying active is helping keep our whole family focused on our fitness goals, which is something we set off the new year working toward. One great way to celebrate even the small goals is to find ways you can celebrate together.
I’m talking about things like this…
Each of the five of us has different fitness goals. One son is getting fit for football while the other is training to make the cross country team. My husband and I are trying to lose weight and we’re all working to get stronger. We reinforce and celebrate our fitness goals by taking family outings that keep us physically fit. We love to hike! Doing group things like that helps each of us get closer to our goals which is a win for everyone!
You won’t catch me without pain reliever in my car armrest cubby. With all the driving I do carrying us to these fun places, I sometimes get aches and pains. I used to get more neck and back pain when driving than I do lately. I think that’s because I’ve strengthened my muscles by working out. Score! I’m definitely on my way to getting fit. However, I’ll never stop carrying Tylenol with me. I never know who might need it or when!
I won’t call anyone out but one of us is celebrating conquering a fear of roller coasters by making a goal of riding everything in the amusement park about a billion times! It’s been so fun since (he who shall not be named) finally decided to hop aboard these rides. It’s so much better than his previous amusement park experience of holding things while everyone else rode. Poor thing. Since I bought park passes for everyone as Christmas presents, we’ve been rocking the amusement park scene like crazy. I love that they still enjoy going places with me!
Without fail, before we go into the amusement park or spend extended time outside, we load up with sunscreen. You can’t be too careful!
My husband is teaching me how to grill! Learning to grill is my yummiest summertime goal. I’m keeping Neosporin and Band-Aids on hand because I’m pretty new to this and want to be prepared for anything wacky I might do…and the results of it. LOL! Happily, we can eat whatever turns out well. #CelebrateEveryGoal
The other day I was out with my daughter and I was able to run into Walgreens and find all of the Johnson & Johnson things that I needed on one endcap! YAY to that! Plus, isn’t it cute? Don’t miss this deal: Become a Balance Reward Member (it’s free to join), buy $15 worth of Johnson & Johnson products from the endcap and you’ll get 3,000 points! Woo hoo! I was glad to find the endcap so easily because my daughter and I were working on one of our goals to makeover her room. In no time flat, we were on our way!
We’re all looking forward to the Big Soccer Game that’s coming up because some of us play soccer every day. Wait. That’s not accurate. ALL of us play soccer every day…with our dog, Saban. Seriously. She’ll wait for you to kick it and take off after it. She’s also an awesome guard. Here’s a picture of her kicking it. I don’t know which team we’ll cheer for during the Big Game but we’ll definitely tune in to pick up some tips!
What goals will you be celebrating this summer? Remember to celebrate the big and small ones. They are all part of the process of achievement!
