I’m taking part in a Blogger challenge hosted by Rebecca from Weight Wars. It’s a good way to make me focus on the goals that I want to achieve. When you declare goals publicly then, I believe, you are much more likely to stick to them. That’s why I decided to jump in and embrace this challenge.
Lately, I have been running 3-4 times a week, twice a week with the club, but I have not done any other form of exercise. I hate to admit it, but I have been neglecting my collection of Jillian Michaels’ DVDs. I am hoping that Get Fit, Feel Epic will help me to rediscover my motivation! I keep saying what my weaknesses are but then not doing anything to address them. This is going to change!
Initially, we need to set 5 goals that are measurable and attainable. Here are mine:
1. Do a Jillian Michaels’ workout DVD at least 3 times a week
2. Do the 100 push ups challenge
3. Achieve a Half Marathon PB
4. Aim to lose 2-4 lbs during the challenge and 1-2 inches from my hips / waist
5. Focus on eating more healthily – reacquaint myself with MyFitnessPal
So, there are my goals. Open for all to see them.
Our challenge for this week was to do something that makes you feel amazing. This was easy because I had a trail race this weekend. Nothing can beat the feeling that I get when I’m running through mud, rivers and across the glorious Cumbrian fells. So, I admit, I’m not one for spa treatments for lifting my mood. Running is what frees my mind and makes me feel amazing.
