New Month, New Goals! Can you believe that today is the first day of March?! Last month went by super fast.
At the end of last year I set some overall goals for 2017, but setting smaller monthly goals will help me with the larger goals! I didn’t set any official goals for February, but I was hoping to be active every day. I was hoping that this would help me with my new workout routine. I was active for 26 our of 28 days, so I came pretty close to my goal. Here are my goals for March!
Commit to Half Marathon Training
Training for the Brooklyn Half Marathon started on Monday. I have not officially followed a training plan for a half marathon in over a year (ridiculous I know). I think the issue was that I was running them so often that I just stopped following training plans. The Brooklyn Half will be my first half marathon of the year and I want it to go well so I’m devoting myself to this training plan. That means getting in all my runs and other workouts this month.
No Junk Food
I’m making a conscious effort to clean up my eating this month. This should be easy since today is Ash Wednesday and I’m giving up junk food for Lent. This means no chips, popcorn, candy, cakes, cupcakes, etc for 40 days. The only exception will be a cupcake on my birthday in April. In addition to Meatless Mondays, I’ll also be giving up meat on Fridays during Lent as well.
Try two new recipes
I have some really great cookbooks, but I haven’t used some of them since December. No need for that to continue! Also I’m getting a little bored with my breakfast choices during the week so I definitely want to try something new to spice it up!
Do you have any health and fitness goals for this month?
