Life: September Healthy Habits!

So i decided i need to make myself more accountable. I've decided to quit the gym for a month (well longer.. 6 weeks to be exact). Yes i exercise, it's part of my lifestyle, i just can't help myself. BUT, i do find myself putting off working out if don't have a gym workout to complete. I dunno. I just don't get the motivation when i'm at home. It's far too easy to lay around in my pyjamas and blog all day. To add on to that i've always been snacking WAY too much and eating a lot less plant based than i used to. By that, i mean, i've been eating waaaay too many Oreo's. Oops.

So here i am. Setting myself some goals for September. Some healthy goals. Goals which i will stick too.

1. Cycling three times a week = 3hrs in total. 

I've been really enjoying cycling recently, it's so exhilarating and such a good way to get outdoors in the morning. So now i want to make sure i get in 3 hours worth of bike reading in the week. I usually do an hour a time so this shouldn't 't too hard, just gotta times it by three.

2. Three Zumba workouts a week (min. 30mins). 

Oh how i have been loving Zumba. I have a full playlist on my Youtube here if you fancy giving it a go. I do this in my living room and it is SUCH GOOD FUN. Cardio is no longer hardio. It will have you sweating in no time. Now i want to make sure i hit 3 sessions a week! I might actually give a proper class a go too.

 3. One hour of mindful walking a week. 

I did this the other day.. walked with no headphones, no mobile phone, no distractions, nothing. It reminded me of how much i enjoyed it and missed doing it. I used to walk a lot more regularly, it's so nice to get outdoors and truly appreciate you're surroundings. So that's what i'm going to do for at least one hour a week.

4. At least one piece of fruit a day.

This sounds bad.. i do eat my veggies everyday but not fruit. Dunno what it is but i can go weeks without fruit. So i'm going to aim for just one portion a day. Just because vitaminzzzz. lolz.

5. Fluids: 2+ ltr of water per day, at least one green tea a day & only three coffees per week.

CAFFEINE. Addict. It needs to stop. I said i would stop in this vlog here and that was months ago. I have done it before. It is so much better for you're digestion. A simple switch to decaff is really easy. So that is what i shall be doing, as well as adding in the green tea. Now of course that contains caffeine but nowhere near as strong. The health benefits kind of outweigh any negatives.

So there you have it. My September health goals. I will be tracking them all weekly, starting from today (i like to start my week on a Monday!). I've already had my green tea and two glasses of water, so we're off to a good start!

Do you have a habit tracker? What are you're goals for September? 
Are they health related?
