Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: What are your goals for 2023? Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
It’s our last Tuesday Topics link up for 2022. Thank you to everyone for linking up with us throughout this year 🙂 It’s still a little crazy to me to be thinking about 2023, but here we are! As always, I have a few goals for next year. Similar to last year, I grouped my fitness goals into two categories – Peloton and Orangetheory Fitness. From the list below, I’m most excited about reaching the “comma club” for strength workouts.
I have a few other mini-goals as well:
Hit 300 Tread Bootcamps on my birthday
This would be a hard one to complete due to timing, but if I can hit my tread bootcamp goal early in the year, it means I can celebrate that milestone on my birthday during a Saturday60 bootcamp since my birthday is on a Saturday and Jess Sims should be back to teaching live by that time.
Incorporate OTF Lift45 and/or 45-minute Peloton strength workouts weekly
My OTF studio offers a Lift45 class on Sunday mornings. These classes do not involve the treadmill or rower, it’s all about strength training. I would ideally like to focus more on strength training next year, so doing these classes in addition to other shorter strength classes, is a good way for me to achieve this.
Seriously participate in OTF Transformation Challenge
The challenge runs for 8 weeks every year, usually from mid-January to mid-March. When I first did the challenge in 2020, it was great and I really made an effort to get in quality workouts and zone in my nutrition. I was really pleased with my results at the end of the 8 weeks but then Covid hit and I lost my momentum due to the world imploding. They didn’t have the challenge in 2021. I signed up for the challenge this year but honestly didn’t really put in the effort to do it. Next year I want to repeat what I did in 2020 and really put in the work.
Finally establish a good sleep routine
I’m basically at the point now where I have to figure this out because it’s just not getting any better and constantly running on 4-5 hours of sleep is not healthy. I talked with my primary care doctor about it during my physical exam last week. She listed a few options I can try, including prescription meds as a last resort. I definitely don’t want to go that route so I will try the other things on the list first and I pray that something helps.
Tell me: What are your goals for 2023?

Topic for next week – What is your word for 2023? We hope you’ll link up with us!
Prioritizing sleep is a great one.
It will help your body to recover and with that, you will perform even better in the strength workouts. Apparently more sleep helps to dial in nutrition, too.
If you find a way to get more sleep you will rock the OTF Transformation Challenge!
So true Catrina! I know that once I figure out the sleep issue, other things will fall into place.

I hear ya on the sleep concerns. Although I seem to function quite well on minimal sleep, I know I’d be even more “functional” with increased slumber. Like you, I do not want to go the medicinal route either. Good luck with your ‘23 goals!!
Same here – While I can function on not much sleep, I know it’s not good to keep this pattern going.
All the best reaching that comma club Kim! My sleep improved when I got my vitamin D to a decent level. It’s a struggle every winter. I don’t blame you for not wanting to go the meds route.
I take Vitamin D but haven’t gotten my levels checked in a while so I will look into that. Thanks for the heads up!
Some great goals. You are the workout Queen.
I never thought of sleep goals. A good one.
I’m behind on topics. My post is coming.
Thanks Darlene, you’re too sweet!
Oh, this would have been a good topic for me to join in on if I had thought of it in time! I guess I need to start thinking about 2023 goals. Yours are great, and I know I’ll share one with you- prioritizing sleep. It really, really is important, and we won’t reach our fitness goals without it. I’ll be interested to hear how you tackle this one- good luck with it!
Never to late to set goals! It seems like many of us struggle with sleep which is unfortunate 🙁
Wow, that’s a lot of goals! My goal for 2023 is to try to remain injury-free.
I hope you get your sleep issue figured out. There’s nothing worse than needing sleep and not being able to get it.
That’s a great goal, and probably the most important goal to be honest!
“Really put in the work” is so well said. I love all of your goals.
Best of luck with sleep, it’s such a hard thing to navigate and affects so much.
Goal for both of us: we’re going to meet.
Thanks so much Cari! And yes, we will meet IRL in 2023!
So sorry to hear about your poor sleep Kim – Ditiro is a very poor sleeper, so I know through him how tough it is. I hope you figure out the right formula in 2023. As for those OTF and Peloton goals – go get it girl! Can’t wait to see you accomplish it all!
Thank you! It’s a very difficult thing to deal with but I’m committed with finding a solution to help me get more sleep.
Deborah Brooks says
I am betting on you crushing all of your 2023 goals!
Zenaida Arroyo says
Love your Peloton goals! I know you will achieve your goals. Good luck on the sleep goal. Sometimes I struggle too and my doctor gave me meds. I will stop taking them once I am done with the bottle and try melatonin.
Sorry to hear that you also struggle with sleep issues too 🙁
Great goals Kim! I’m sorry for your sleep struggles – I have the same issue and can completely understand not wanting to go the medication route. I hope one of the other options your doctor proposed does the trick.
It seems like so many of us have sleep issues 🙁 I hope that I eventually find the right thing that will work for me.
