I’m not really a fan of the whole New Year’s resolution thing. Mostly because it is widely known for setting people up for failure. I like goals though, something achievable that you are able to work towards. I had already started making goals in my head as 2013 approached but decided I needed to get them out there and solidify them! I am also going to try to make an update each week in my mamavation post on how I’m doing with reaching my goals. Most of them involve running, but I’m sure I’ll think of more as the year goes on, so I can just add to my list!
Run 365 miles this year – I don’t usually get the chance to go running every day but I think a collective 7 miles a week should be doable & get me to get out there and go running! So far this year I’ve run 9.7 miles. I’ve been tracking with dailymile.
Run a 30 minute or less 5K – The couch to 5K app I used on my phone when I started running has a “5K improvement plan” I started it today and ran just over a 5K (3.17 miles) in 34:58!
Okay! Enough with the running goals!
Read 5 books – I hardly ever find the time to read, but I love too! I was able to read 3 books last year (okay it was the 50 shades series.) So, I think I should be able to get in at least 5 this year! Any suggestions?
Do a split – Yes, feel free to laugh. I just always thought it was awesome when someone was able to do a split so I turned to my most reliable source of information. Google. And looked up the stretches you should do if you want to be able to do a split. I’ve been working on doing them everyday. This actually doing me some good already because I always forget to stretch!
I also have a goal just for the month of January of getting the kids playroom organized! I’ve been working on it little by little and I’m starting to think I probably should have made this a year long goal as well!!! Haha.
