February Goals (A&I Roses Week 1)

Friday, February 01, 2013

I based my February goals on my 2013 goals I set at the beginning of January.

A. Nutrition:
Make more progress on getting my weight back down to my goal by doing some simple but not easy things:
1. Stay in my daily calorie range at least 27 days.
2. Eat a balanced variety of foods that meet my bodyís needs.
3. Find something concrete to do to bring me in the direction of changing my attitude about food: not reward, not indulgence, but fuel for mind, body, & spirit.

B. Fitness:
Maintain my fitness level while avoiding injury.
1. Run 3x/week, total at least 18 miles, normally 22+ miles. Maintaining this schedule should allow me to exceed 1,000 miles in 2013 like I did in 2012.
2. ST/PT 2-3x/week. Keep up with strength training and physical therapy to stay strong and avoid injury.
3. Cross-train (XT) 3x/week: Iím pretty consistent with the stationary bike & pilates. Iíd like to add swimming back into the mix this month.
4. Schedule & folllow through: once a week do a boot-camp style interval training DVD (I count as both XT & ST).
5. Stretching: 30+ minutes of stretching minimum 1x/week.
6. Stay in training mode to prepare for March 30 half-marathon.

C. Mental health:
Both nutrition and fitness goals will contribute but I need to make an extra effort to deal with the high amount of stress I encounter at work.
1. Maintain daily meditation. 10 minutes minimum. Build back to 20 minutes daily this month.
2. Participate in our sitting meditation group both times it meets this month.
3. Find a time to read something spiritual every day. It doesnít have to be long, maybe just a paragraph.

    I always found C the most difficult; A and B weren't that hard, usually ... C emoticon But it is an achievable goal and anybody can do it, it's you. emoticon
