It’s a new year, which mean it’s time to reset on your fitness goals, evaluate wins and losses from the past year and start focusing on the now and make things happen! Because Fitness has and will continue to be a priority for me, I wanted to really focus on specific goals for my health and wellness beyond my other goals for the new year and what better way to kickoff the first Fitness Friday than with clear goals of the year!
Run More! Running has always been part of my fitness, some years more miles than others – with the goal of still running a handful of races, I want to incorporate running in my routine beyond the training for the races and making it more of constant.
Build My Core Strength. This should have been a priority for the past 13 years – due to my chronic back pain – which has been flaring up more than lately, I’ve been thinking about ways to moderate this more as I get older. And one thing that I’ve been told in my years is building my core strength, so by adding in a simple addition of regular planks I hope to build this up!
Less Carbs. Plain and simple. I’ll begin buckling down on this a bit more, as I’ve been enjoying the finer things in life lately.
Remaining Consistent with Bootcamp. The last two years I’ve gotten into a good groove, seen progress and continued to get stronger. I like the group fitness class and it’s an easy way to check off 2 or 3 days of workouts in the week!
Although I’m not working towards fitting into a wedding dress – this past year was a good year of maintaining my routine, sticking strong on my diet. I worked so hard to establish that routine and make the big progress that I did – I don’t want to loose that routine or happiness I gained in myself. So here’s to another year of becoming and loving your best self!
