It’s that time of year!! The time where New Years Resolutions are fresh in everyone’s mind and you vow to lose the 10 lbs you gained during the holiday season or you vow to be able to wear the skinny jeans you have saved in your closet in hopes that they will fit again one day.
My usual routine is to set a few SMART goals around these in order to ensure I achieve them. By SMART, I mean Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic and Time-based.
My goal is to be able to wear a size 25 jeans or get to 115 lbs, which ever one comes first before May 1, 2014.
Here is how I plan on getting there:
1. Run five 5K or longer length runs:
January 18th- SA Women’s Cocoa 5K
January 25th- Kinetic Kids 5k
February 8th- The Glo Run
March- Either UTSA Diploma Dash (3/1) or the Alamo City Running Festival (3/2)
April- Austin Capital Statesman 10K
2. Participate in two 30 day Paleo Challenges throughout the year.
One in January (to meet the initial goal) and one in June (to maintain the weight).
I will need to log a weekly food log from January 6th to February 6th in order to ensure this is legit. For any of my coworkers wanting to participate. Please make sure and log your meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks) alongside your work outs with your weekly logs. You can post them on the comments section of the blog posts and we will hold eachother accountable so we can meet our goals
3. Keep track of weight, BMI’s and inches month over month.
Starting weight: 124.4 lbs
Measurements in inches: 21.5 thigh, 28 waist, 32.4 hips, 10.6 biceps
In the meantime, here is one of the sites I plan on helping me with my Paleo Journey. It shares to do’s and don’ts of eating Paleo.
Another goal is to Travel and Have fun! Details on how I will achieve that will be shared on another post.
