Happy 2013! I know a lot of people say this, but I can't believe another year has passed. Where did the time go? I am not typically one for resolutions, but I do feel like January 1 is a good time to reflect on past years as well as the year ahead of you. I've decided to set a few fitness/health goals for 2013 and I am really going to try my best to stick to them. So far, these are the goals I've set:
Work out at least four times a week
Walk/Run 1,000 miles*
Complete a half marathon without any walking (I've done it once, I can do it again!)
Complete a sub-30 5k (may be a stretch!)
Incorporate more weight training
Clean up my eating
Some of these seem to be easy enough, but I have been struggling with consistent exercising and clean eating lately. Exercising four days a week may not seem like a lot to some, but I feel like it's a good start. As for cleaner eating, I plan to create a menu at the beginning of each week and stick with it. I typically make all my meals and rarely eat out anyway, so hopefully this won't be too hard to do.
With healthier eating in mind, here are a few links to some recipes I've posted. I hope they'll help you kick off your healthy new year.
Any resolutions for the new year? If so, what do you do to stay on track? Have a safe, happy, and healthy 2013!
