Just like last year, I wanted to take some time to reflect on my goals for this year, after the “New Year, New You” type hubub has calmed down. So here are my goals, finally. 🙂
Strength Training. Strength Training. Strength Training. Luckily I have found BodyPump. I hope to continue to strength train regularly. This year is about becoming stronger.
Run Marathon #2 – Wineglass Marathon in October. Already signed up. Just gotta train and finish this one. 😉
Focus on water intake. This is carryover from last year. I really need to figure out a good way to help me track my water intake that is simple and easy. I need to figure out how to be motivated.
Yoga. My goal here is simple. Once a week, the majority of the 52 weeks of the year.
Quality over Quantity with races. Last year was all about quantity with 13 in 2013. Though I ❤ racing, I want to focus on the quality of my races this year. If I run fewer races, so be it.
Focus on fresh and unprocessed. I am slowly working on this goal when cooking at home, though admittedly sometimes it is just easier to order take out or heat up something frozen. I want to get better with incorporating fresh ingredients, and become better at ordering healthier items at restaurants. I tend to gravitate towards the less healthy stuff, thinking of it as a “treat.” But I eat out frequently enough that it shouldn’t always be a treat.
Focus on far away friends. Some of my very good friends live 2+ hours from me (some are even on the other side of the country). I need to get better about calling them, and seeing them.
More reading. Another one I am bringing over from last year.
Focus on living in the now. It is easy for me to get wrapped up in the daily grind, and to feel stressed out. I need to focus on being happy NOW.
Finish the basement of the house. Hopefully this will happen soon. 🙂
Paint the interior. First step is figuring out colors I suppose….ugh. I am not a natural decorator so this is a bit of a daunting task for me, not gonna lie.
