January Goals for 2013

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

My goal is a strong start this month! I'm tired of being a PROcrastinator (as is in, I'm really good at it!) I'm waiting to start the January Jumpstart Challenge until the 6th, since I'm in it for the prizes! LOL Yesterday, I posted my goals for the year. I have certainly broken these down, to be tackled by month. Of course, some of my goals can't be put into steps any more than they are. There you have it. I'm trying to gear my monthly goals this year toward supporting my year goals, something I vaguely did last year. I'm making a point of it this year. I think, the more specific you are about your goals, the more likely you are to achieve them.
January Goals:
1) lose 2# by 1/30 (a rate of 0.5#/week)
2) prepare 8 recipes, 4 from SparkPeople cookbook, 4 from other collections
3) contribute at least $60 to my emergency fund
4) read 31 chapters of my books
5) earn 800 SparkPoints
6) all laundry & dishes cleaned & stored
Onward to a healthier lifestyle!
I've also figured out that I don't think I'll be able to jump to Level 20 by this year. If I progress more than 1 level, I'll be super-stoked! I'm just trying to be reasonable.
So, my other part of my plan is my workout plan. My work schedule has increased to 5 nights/week approximately 7 hours of cleaning & walking. In spite of this, I'm challenging myself for the January Jumpstart Challenge, so I'm aiming for at least 10 minutes cardio 5 days/week, plus the ST videos. With the help of my handy-dandy FitBit, I'm tracking at least 4 days of 30 minutes of cardio just doing my job, so I've got that covered. Plus, extra cleaning for my parents, grandpa & myself, I've got it covered. I just gotta do those ST videos daily! I'm ready! I can do this!

    Oh, I've started anyway! I've just not officially joined the challenge yet. I'm still working on the goals, at least 10 minutes of cardio & ST videos. I like Coach Nicole's videos & am trying for at least 3/week. The prize-winning period of the challenge doesn't start until the 6th, that's why I'm waiting to join. This week is my "practice week," if you will. Thanks for all your support! emoticon emoticon

    Best wishes on all your goals! Is there anything you can start on ahead of time before the challenges officially start? No point in putting off starting if there's something you can do early.
