January 2016 Goals
While I did make a few resolutions for the year, I've found it much easier to actually accomplish my goals when I specifically make smaller ones each month. I did really well for the month of December, crazy as it was, and actually accomplished every single goal. I went on a date with my hubs, had a day to myself and we even managed to get Christmas cards out this year. Go us! Now onto a fresh new month!
1. Get on my spin bike 3 times a week - While the last few months have been spent winding down from my big bike relay, the next few months will be critical in conditioning for the new season. I already have commitments for rides that start in June and go on through July so I've got to get myself back into riding shape. I always like to start small so I know I'll stick with it, and 3 times a week is really reasonable.
2. Eat better - Now that the holidays are over and I've gorged beyond belief, it's time to crack down and get my body ready for a busy year. I read recently, that you should treat your food as energy for your body. Your body needs proteins and vitamins and even healthy fats in order to keep up with our busy lifestyles and I definitely need to get back on track.
3. Plan out my blog year - Towards the end of the year I was much better organized as far as blog posts went, and I hope to keep that up into the new year. I also want to schedule some classes to better utilize my equipment for blogging, so I'm going to try to keep on top of all that.
4. Better utilize my time - Since I am so busy and one of my priorities this year is to spend as much time with loved ones as possible, I am trying to get more organized as far as time management. While I'm always on the go I have some down time during commuting and in between meetings, etc, that I want to utilize better by doing blog work or other projects I have going so that I can spend my time at home really focusing on family.
A lot of my goals for this month are about getting more organized and fit, which is always something I'm working on. What do you guys want to accomplish this month?
