I’ve toyed with the idea of resolutions, but all of my hopes for the new year come out better as goals, since a lot of them are challenges or one time things.
I’ve realized I work better when I have a day-to-day plan or to do list. Doing challenges fires me up and motivates me to do things I otherwise would think “oh, cool, I should try that sometime.” Blogging about it makes me even more interested in doing things!
So, here are my goals for the new year (broken neatly down into categories!):
Running. One of the things I really love about running is the ability to set tangible goals.
- Beat my 5K PR of 32:33
- Run my first 10K
- Run my first Half Marathon
Yoga. Yoga’s a little trickier. “Do more yoga” was my first goal, but without a measurable goal (how will I know I achieved more yoga?), it’s not going to work out.
- Complete Yoga Journal’s 21 Day Yoga Challenge
- Practice yoga at least 4 days a week
- Improve enough to attend the Yoga 3 class at the gym
- Be able to do crow for 5 breaths.
Eating: I want to eat in a way that keeps my body energized and healthy.
- Try a 7 day vegan challenge
- Drink 3 Green Monsters a week.
- Avoid processed food
- Plan out my meals ahead of time so I actually cook dinner!
- Do not waste time on the internet. This means every time I find myself mindless clicking around Facebook or the internet in general, I stop, close my computer, and think about something I really want to do or need to accomplish. Then, I go do it!
With that, I’m off to not-waste-time-on-the-internet! Have a fabulous day!
