Every year I set large goals for myself to work on the entire year. I don’t believe in resolutions – to me, those are promises you make and forget about. I hold myself accountable for my goals all year long and do a halfway and final report. 🙂
This year I’ve got a bit of a predicament – we’ll be starting our IVF in about two weeks and not only will I be restricted physically, but a lot of stuff is out of my hands…and I don’t know what this year will bring. I know what I want it to bring and we’re praying everything works out, so when setting my goals I have to give myself a few things I know I can achieve and others that may be more of a challenge.
1. Continue to Work Towards My Normal Weight and Have a Healthy Pregnancy.
With our IVF coming up, I know getting back to my normal weight may not be reached – however, I’m going to keep it on the top of my list so that I’m not gaining excess weight that’s not needed during my pregnancy (fingers crossed everything goes as planned!). I’ll be listening to my doctor’s advice and not obsessing over weight gain that will happen, and I’d like to continue toning as much as possible, and cardio as I can.
2. Help More People Reach Their Goals.
I threw this out there last year as a new Beachbody coach and made amazing progress during the year (you can see my 2012 wrap up for details). I reached so many people, my team grew larger than I expected, and I’m so proud. So this year the sky is the limit. I want to reach out to as many people as I can and support them while they work to reach their goals. And I want to help my team of coaches advance in their business so they can reach as many people as they can, too. I want to continue to give the gift of fitness and inspiration to as many people as I can, and I would love to end 2013 with over 20,000 Facebook followers that are working towards their goals and spreading the word to others.
3. Complete Tae-Bo PT 24/7.
I didn’t get a chance to even touch this program in 2012 because I was busy with others. I miss Billy and I want to go back to my fitness roots, and I think this program will be great during my pregnancy when I can’t go as intense as I’d like to.
4. Complete Brazil Butt Lift.
I bought this program a few months back and have yet to touch it – because I’ll be slightly restricted, I’m making this program top priority on my list.
5. Complete Les Mills Pump.
I purchased this program in December and I’m dying to try it! It’s definitely on my list for the year. 🙂
6. Walk/Run 500 Miles.
Last year I only made it to 208.96 miles due to a few months of restriction and honestly, just not paying that much attention. As my IVF procedures start, I’m going to be restricted to walking, and that will carry over into my pregnancy (and I’d like to get back to running if my doctor signs off on it)…so this one WILL be done this year!
7. Participate in More Races.
I got bitten by the running bug in 2012 and I want to keep it up in 2013. I definitely want to do the Color Run again with my amazing fitness family, and I’d love to do a few more runs if I can. Obviously this is going to be restricted a bit…but I’m going to make an effort.
8. Train for a 10K.
I know that this may or may not be possible this year, but now that I’ve finished the Ease into 5K program and successfully ran two 5K’s, I’m ready to start Bluefin Software’s Bridge to 10K program. If I end up being too restricted and not able to complete this, it will for sure be on my 2014 list!
9. Start a Local Fit Club.
The energy and excitement in Team Empowerment, our Facebook-based motivational workout group, is unreal – and I want to bring that to a local level. I have some amazing ladies on my team that are local and together we can put together a weekly/bi-weekly group that will allow people to try out all of the products that we love and believe in – Beachbody programs, Shakeology, and others (I’m sure a Tae Bo workout or two will show up during our meets). I would love to provide a place for people to go so they can stay motivated and get the support and inspiration they deserve.
