Happy Friday! Congratulations – we made it to the end of the week! Is it just me or was this week super long? I’m SO ready for the weekend! Since yesterday was the start of a new month, it’s time to discuss monthly goals for February!
First, let’s take a look at my goals from January:
Go vegetarian for a week
I did really well with this goal. I went meat-free from January 1-9. I had a chicken caesar wrap for lunch on January 10th and I really wasn’t feeling it, so I decided to go back to meat free. So basically, I’ve been meat free all month except for 1 day. Once change is that I’m not vegetarian but pescatarian since I’m still eating seafood. I think I’m going to keep this new diet and the best thing is that I’m not craving meat anymore. I’m proud of myself!
Hit all my workouts
I hit all of my runs last month, despite the crazy weather, but I did miss a strength workout and substituted another strength workout with a spinning class. I know I need to do at least 2 strength workouts a week so I will work on being better about this in February.
Get back to daily PT exercises
I didn’t do my PT exercises daily last month, but I did do them at least 5 days a week so that a huge increase over December.
Here are my goals for February!
Complete the Supermans, Squats and Twists Challenge
A HUGE thank you to Rachel for creating this monthly challenge! I always say that I need to do more core work so this is a great way to get started! I’m also hoping that these moves will help with some lower back pain that I’ve had on some of my long runs.
Meal prep like a boss
I’ve got 2 peak weeks of training this month, so meal prepping is going to be super important. I have a feeling that I’ll be pretty busy with work as well so the less I have to think about “What to eat for breakfast/lunch/dinner”, the better. I probably won’t have much energy to do anything else but work and do my workouts during those weeks, lol.
Watch the Olympics!
I’m OBSESSED with the Olympics and I have been for many years. There’s just something about the best athletes in the world competing against each other on the largest international stage in the world. It’s hard to watch some of the events live because of the time difference and work, but I’m going to try to watch as much of it online/on TV at home as I can. I’m so excited!
Decide what to give up for Lent
I usually give up something for Lent but this year I don’t have an idea of what I want to do. In previous years I’ve given up pizza, red meat, and junk food. I know a few friends that have given up social media and they say it feels so good to disconnect during that time. There’s so many things to choose from, but at least I have a little while longer to decide!
Try something new
I kind of feel like I’m in a rut when it comes to everything in my life right now. My routine is pretty much the same day in and day out. Not to say that anything is wrong with that, but variety is the spice of life after all. I’m not sure what my “new” thing will be this month, but it will be nice do something out of the norm.
Do you set monthly goals? Do you have any goals for February?
