I love the format RacingWithBabes took last year checking in monthly on her Goals, thanks T for the inspiration!! I plan to check in monthly to give progress on my Goals.
1- Set new PR's in at least 2 distances and run more than 1,200 miles for the year.
2- Run new races. Ideas- 1 mile, 10 mile, trail race, ultra, obstacle course/mudder, etc.
3- Earn Half Fanatic Status
1- Try 5 or more new (to me) forms of Cross-Training. A modified version of the AWESOME challenge set out by Kim HERE. Ideas- Jillian Michael's videos, Triathlon (SHHHHH), Yoga, Zumba etc.
2- Work on overall Muscle tone. I plan to take body measurements EEEK to get a baseline to start with and take new measurements throughout the year. If I am not going to lose weight I may as well lose inches :)
3- 1-2 days EVERY week I will lift with Muscle Man and/or do Pilates or another cross-training exercise for 30-45 minutes.
1- Help Muscle Man reach his goals, which includes getting him across his first Half Marathon Finish Line.
2- Focus on the Little Studs education and fitness. Teach Little Stud #1 to read, register him for his first official race. Spend alone and focussed time with Little Stud #2.
3- Find ways to inspire and work with my extended family on their fitness. I would LOVE to see my Tall Brother, Mom and in-laws work toward a 5K walk or fun run at some point this year.
1- Keep a food journal to record what I am putting in my mouth and how it impacts my energy, mood and overall health. Use this journal to create a healthy and balanced diet and to cut out the foods which cause issues.
2- Monthly diet challenges, starting in February, each month I will set a challenge for myself to cut out or add something to/from my diet.
3- Learn more about the best foods to feed my family and move the kids away from the standard kid foods.
There you have it. Lots to focus on, but all attainable with focus and dedication.
Quotes about Goals:
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I'm committed to?
The distance is nothing; it is only the first step that is difficult.

We're still not where we're going, but we're not where we were.
