New Month’s New Goals

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the first of the month. I love new beginnings and fresh starts and the chance to make a new goal. I hate shelling out nearly 1/3 of my monthly income for rent…..but a girls gotta live!

Anyways, all these other bloggers are setting so goals so might as well jump on the bandwagon:

1) Run 5 miles without stopping. My last post was about how I don’t really feel like I have anything to run for. Now I know, I want to be able to sign up to do a 10K on a whim and not have to train for 8 or 10 weeks to do it.

2) Try and cook 2 new recipes. I feel like I’m in a food rut. I read an article that said most people buy the same 130 food items over and over again. For me its peanut butter, veggie patties, yogurt, bananas, pistachios, and pasta. I feel like I eat these foods every day!

3) Do at least 1 ab and 1 arm workout per week. After complaining about trying to start strength training i finally just did it. Its only about 3 or 4 different exercises that I copied from watching people and it takes me about 7 minutes to complete but its something!

4) Start studying for my Certified Personal Trainer test. Yup, that’s right. I bit the bullet and ordered all the study materials. Maybe I’ll learn a thing or two and share it with you guys πŸ™‚

  1. Great goals, you’re right ya gotta start somewhere! What organization are you certifying through? I’m an NASM CPT and currently studying for my weight loss specialization and it’s awesome!

  2. Just read your last post as well – definitely agree with the others about signing up for a race, and am tempted to say go for the 10k as well! Was in a similar position where I sort of knew I would manage 5k with not too much difficulty but aiming for 10 has put me outside of my comfort zone and I really feel I’ve reaped the benefits because of this πŸ™‚ Good luck with your May goals, look forward to hearing about your CPT studies!
