2013 goals and short-term challenges I'm doing

Monday, December 31, 2012

Figured I'd join everyone else posting their goals.......

Goal #1:
Be down to 160 lbs by July 1. That is just under 1 lb per week. While they haven't set an official date yet, my son and his fiance are thinking of a summer wedding. It would be nice to be at 160 for the wedding. I'm also planning a trip to visit friends in Lima, Peru the end of July (unless wedding conflicts with it, then I will reschedule) and would like to be at that weight goal for the trip, also.

Goal #2:
Walk, run, and/or elliptical 2500 miles this year. That comes to just over miles per month. I am going to use my FitBit daily miles for my tracking.

Goal #3:
Get back to eating cleaner. I've been having way too much sugar lately. I feel so much better when I eat clean!

Goal #4:
Try at least 1 new recipe per week. Gotta have some variety in your life!

Now for my challenges:
Challenge #1:
Eat clean for the month of January. I have a group where some are doing Whole30 for the month of January. I'm not convinced to go paleo yet but I do need to clean up my eating so I am joining them but just eating as clean as possible.

Challenge #2:
Shape Up Challenge (12 week challenge)

This is actually starting today. I'm doing this mainly to get other exercise ideas.

Challenge #3:
I'm participating in the running escapades Chilly Challenge 2013

I'm on the purple giraffe team. I figure this will help me get to my mileage goal for the year.

Ready to get this new year off to a great start! Are you with me?

    Great Goals GF. LOL - You are just determined to leave me in the dust.
    It's ok, I will keep hanging on.......someone will come along and quinch my thirst. I was in a slump in Dec, but I am on the move again.
    Maybe, I can at least keep up with you so the difference in our weight don't get any greater. You have done wonders. Keep it going my friend.
