I am on day 2 of #31Days to a my healthiest me ever. This is a 31 day challenge being run by Janice at Fitness Cheerleader. Yesterday’s task was to set 4 goals. You can see my full post here, but basically I want to workout/exercise 5 days a week, only eat clean snacks, no diet pop (or regular pop for that matter!), and lose 5 pounds.
Today’s task is to plan out how I am going to reach those goals.
So, my rough plan for the rest of this week is:
Thursday: oatmeal with flaxseeds and honey for breakfast, Southwestern Turkey Soup for lunch, dinner ???, exercise will be a hockey game
Friday: oatmeal for breakfast, Southwestern Turkey Soup for lunch, dinner ???, exercise will be a kettlebell workout (can’t wait…I’m loving my kettlebells!).
Saturday: no idea of food! Workout will be BobHarper.com workout of the day.
On the weekend I will dig into my Clean Eating magazines and cookbooks and plan out my meals for next week. Key to this plan will be my snacks. One of my goals is to only eat clean snacks. I usually do okay with my main meals, but snacks are more of a challenge, and I will need to plan them out and make sure I’ve got the right groceries. For the rest of this week, it will be almonds and dried cranberries, since that’s pretty much all that I’ve got on hand.
On the weekend I will also plan out all of my January workouts. I’ve got hockey Thursday nights so that takes care of 1 of my 5 weekly workouts! The other 4 will be a combination of BobHarper.com workouts and some FitnessBlender.com workouts. I still need to figure out how much running I am going to do and how to work it into my schedule.
Tonight was our last family visit of the Christmas season. Since both hubby and I went back to work today, the plan was to just have pizza when the kid’s cousins stopped in. We had a nice visit and after they left, we went out for a nice walk around the neighbourhood. It was a great night for a walk, a little chilly, but we dressed for it.
Maybe we can make an evening walk a regular part of my workout schedule???
Have you set goals for January or further out into the year?
Do you have a plan to help you reach them?
