2014 Fitness Goals

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

I decided not to sweat a weight loss goal this year. Although, it's always there, isn't it? The quick multiplier of two by the number of weeks that remain to provide you with the maxmum amount of healthy weightloss you still have time to achieve...ugh! Sometimes our brain is our worst enemy. After some goal setting, I'm done thinking. I'm ready for doing! My body will resolve the weight when I do good things for it.

My brief definition of fitness minutes that I'll be tracking:

Fitness minutes = elevated heart rate for most of the workout.
If I'm walking around the building at work, I'll be power walking if I want to claim it!

1. 18,000 fitness minutes
2. 60 cardio 5-6 days
3. 30 strength training 3 days

What follows below is my own boring analysis. It was motivating for me to ponder, but probably not a very interesting read!

In 2013, I logged over 16,000 fitness minutes. My goal was 18,000. I like 18,000 - 20,000 for 2014, or 350 - 385 minutes per week, which is a 13 - 25% improvement over 2013.

My fitness goals have changed a little bit from last year. I'm challenging myself to 60 minutes instead of 30 five days a week. I'm also challenging myself to strength train three days a week...for good! This is something I'm putting into my routine, just like I did with the healthy breakfast.

Stay tuned for my nutrition goals, which, not surprisingly, will be very similar to last years. The difference might not be apparent on paper. It will be my laser focus! Watch out!!
