Welcome to a new year of Trim Down Thursday – a Fitness hop I co-host with Bri from Eco Baby Mama Drama.
I normally don’t make “resolutions” because I never keep them and then I am disappointed. I went searching for last year’s Trim Down Thursday resolution post only to find that I never wrote one. Hey, if you don’t make them, you can’t break them, right?
Even though I am anti-resolution, I do find it helpful to set goals. I try to keep them simple. Sure, I would love to run a marathon, but let’s be honest here, that isn’t going to happen any time soon! Instead I am sticking with realistic goals that I really can follow through on.
~ Drink more Water: We all know the importance of water (I even posted about it here in a previous Trim Down Thursday) but I often forget to drink it throughout the day. This year I have already started keeping a water bottle with me at all times to make sure to remember to drink. I also keep sliced lemon on hand both at home and at work to add to the water. I find I drink a lot more if it has a little “flavor”.
~ Walk More: As I said, I would love to say that I will run a marathon (or even a 5K) but with a new baby on the way in February and a 2 1/2 year old, I am realistic. Our neighborhood has a great walking path and I now have this wonderful tandem stroller that will accommodate both kids. So no excuses, I will get out and walk more!
~ Go to Bed Earlier: This one is going to be a little harder for me. There is always something to be done, and I always seem to put it off until after my daughter goes to bed. I am working on ways to organize my day and my to-do list so that I am more efficient. Sleep is so important that I just need to get more of it!
~ Eat a Healthy Breakfast: This is one I am doing well with already. Being pregnant makes any goal that involves eating much easier. However, it is about more than just eating breakfast – the breakfast has to be healthy which for me meals high protein and no fast food!
So what are your fitness/health goals for 2013? If you have a post about them, link it in the comments and I will add a link to it in this post too!
