Ahhhh….a new year is upon us! A time to set new goals and work towards them. And boy am I glad it’s January! December whooped my butt. I was sick for a good part of it, and slacked off working out daily. And then…My boyfriend and I broke up. Hence the last couple really emotional posts. I didn’t have energy or desire to workout or get out of bed early. So this month, I’m hitting reset and reevaluating how to reach my health goals.
I really need to build my immune system, increase flexibility, strengthen my muscles and also the usual loose 17 pounds. I plan on having a killer summer bod!
I am starting school up again part-time this month, and with working full-time + part time 3 nights a week, classes 2 nights a week, and volunteering at my church, I think I need to be realistic with my workout intentions.
So without further ado! I present to you (drumroll) my:
January 2018 Health Goals:
- Run 3 times a week
- Do Yoga, weight lifting, or body weight exercises 1 day a week
- DRINK MORE WATER
- Drink green juice or smoothies 3 times a week
- Eat whole healthy foods
- Get good quality sleep every night
- Practice self-love and de-stressing
I feel like the last two are often overlooked in health goals, cause I know I forget about them. This month, I’m going to focus on taking long showers before bed, sipping tea and reading, lighting candles in the evenings, writing more, and praying.
I have started a Gratitude Journal this year. It’s a journal that everyday you write down 5 things you’re grateful for that day. I haven’t decided if I will fill it out in the morning or the evening, so far it’s been mornings, except for today. But I want to become more grateful this year. I want to appreciate the small things and the big things.
I’m thankful that I started this little blog. It’s amazing how freeing it is to get your thoughts written down and see them in front of you, it’s calming and exciting to me. Anyway, I’ll wrap up this post before it gets too long!!!
