Resolutions in Motion

 At the beginning of the Year (can't believe we are 2 months in) I decided to strive for 13 goals in 2013.  I knew 13 was a lot. Hec, one is alot for me but I figured I had a year and they weren't huge accomplishments.

One of those was to lose 13 pounds and get healthy.  I joined the Resolutions in Motion to help motivate me to actually get it done.  I also created little helpers to help keep me on track.

Weekly Goal Tracker

Fitness Rewards System

MyFitnessPal Calorie Counter and Food Diary
I did great for the first 3 weeks, running 3 times a week and working out 3 days a week.  I lost 5 pounds in the first 2 weeks

Then life happened and the running and work outs became less.  The goal tracker was forgotten. 

As I was reflecting this week, I realized that losing weight isn't really my goal.  Eating better and treating my body better is my goal. So although I would love to lose 13 pounds and I think it will happen this year, I really want my goal to be changing my lifestyle.  I want to eat better. I want to exercise more.  So my goal now is to work hard at changing those things. Using the tools above and a few more.  I didn't lose my 13. But my plan is, over the next 10 weeks, to make running and working out my goal. I think the change in diet will come when those change. I tend to crave healthier foods when I am working out.  I signed up for a half marathon the end of April so running will soon be my reality, whether I like it or not.

Did you have any goals for 2013?  I'd love to read about them. Link your comments in below.

I look forward to sharing with you soon.  Make sure you check out the giveaway happening at Covered In Grace or Shaping Up To Be A Mom.

  1. I love that setting goals leads to the revision of goals once you have worked out what is important to you. I wish you the best of luck finding your healthy balance. Thanks for taking part!
