12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge: Week 1
The other day I was thinking about what I want to do in 2014 and there are a lot of changes I want to make. However these changes aren’t just make where color and not so much black, they are lifestyle changes that are going to take time and changes of habit for them to actually take effect in my life. Then I came across Money Saving Mom’s 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge.
Each month she is going to tackle one area in her life to change and make healthier. I thought, this is a great way to keep myself accountable while watching the progress of others who are fighting for the same goals. Here are the monthly goals for 2014 from moneysavingmom.com:
As you can see, the January goal is to exercise regularly. Money Saving Mom is doing P90X to get her fitness goals going. I, like everyone else in America, am going to join a gym this January. In fact, it was already a goal of mine for this month, since I didn’t do so well at it last month. So tomorrow, after work, I will be trucking over to my local LA Fitness and signing up for a membership.
My goal for this week is to sign up and go at least 3 times. I am going to start easy since I haven’t done much in the past year or so since I began nannying. I am going to walk/run for a half hour each time and work on some flexibility and core exercises. Each week I will up my goals. Friday I will let you know how I did and my goals for the following week.
