So, I've decided against making year-long goals. Rather, I'm going to break it down into smaller bits. I can't focus on a year from now. I need to focus on now. So, I think I'm going to take this one month at a time, at least to get me started. I read a blog that encouraged to only set three goals: a food goal, a cardio goal, and a strength goal.
So, here are my goals for January 2014:
Diet:Eat home-cooked meals at least three days per week.
Cardio: Do at least 30 minutes of cardio a minimum of three days per week.
Strength: Attend BodyPump at least three days per week.
These goals seem small, but for me they are big. Getting into the gym for BodyPump is a challenge for me. I go here and there, but nothing consistently. I set the number for each of these goals at three because I needed to make the goal attainable. In reality, eating at home three times per week will probably be the easiest one to hit, but I decided for January I wanted to start with everything even. I want to set a sort of benchmark for myself. I want to give myself a minimum goal, but push myself to see where I am so that I can set goals that fit me better with past experience in mind.
