Setting Goals

Setting Goals

Time to say goodbye to 2018. While I don’t particularly enjoy time flying by, I do like the start of a new year. It’s fun to think about what I want to change or improve. I’ve never been one to set resolutions but setting goals is my thing. (I know, goals and resolutions could be considered the same thing but….)

Last year, I spent a lot of time on weightlifting. I PR’d almost every lift and it felt amazing. This year, I’m switching it up. I’m setting 2 goals:

  • Goal #1: Improve my ladder sprints. I’ve never been a sprinter and am much better at long runs. I’ve really noticed this at the high school when running ladders and it bugs the heck out of me. Why is it so hard to touch the floor, turn around and sprint back?? To get better at them, I’m going to do them a lot.
  • Goal #2: Wake up earlier. I get in the habit of sleeping until 6 am when I don’t have to be at the school early. I’d like to consistently wake up at 5 or 5:30. Easy when it’s warm outside, hard when it’s not but it seems like a reasonable goal for me.

Healthy eating goals?? Not for this girl. Forcing myself into a particular diet or challenge doesn’t work for me. Continuing to eat decent and exercise hard will be my focus.

So whether you are a resolution person or not, I hope you can give yourself some goals for the year. Make them fun yet challenging. Here’s some examples of gym goals:

  • Pull-ups
  • 1K Row
  • CPM workout 4 times a week
  • Clean PR
  • Muscle-up
  • Don’t die during a workout?? 🤣

Happy New Year friends! I hope your 2019 is a solid year for you both physically and mentally.
