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 🙂
