Fitness & Health Bucket List {Fitness Friday 1.4.13}


If you read many blogs you have probably noticed many posts about new years resolutions, goals, etc.  Of course, it is already January 4th and I have yet to publish my 2013 goals.  But I do not always like to follow the crowd or be forced into a "mold".....so I'm doing mine a little different this year.  I'm borrowing Musings of a Housewife's idea and doing a bucket list for 2013.  So today I am sharing my Fitness & Health Bucket List for 2013.  Next week I will share my general bucket list.  

1.  Learn to run ALONE.  I started running about 3 years ago (I think) and have always run with a buddy. If I do not have someone to run with I just don't run. Yeah, I suck!  I hate this and want to change it in 2013.  B is working with me on a running plan to improve my running time and distance. Next week will be my first week on the plan and I will be running it alone.  I hope I learn to like running by myself, so I do not always have to depend on having someone to run along side me! Although, I do love running with my buddies so I can chat and catch up. 

2.  Start AGAIN & Consistently Attend Spin Class, Yoga, and Strong Bodies. I did a great job this last summer attending these classes several times a week and LOVED going.  Then I flew to KS a couple times towards the end of the summer and never got back into the classes when I came back home.  I became busy with other commitments and working out took a back seat to everything else in my life.  I do not want this to happen again and I will strive to remain active in classes all year!  I have a fun incentive we are doing this year to keep us on track for our workouts that I will share with you next Friday. 

3.  Read Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook That Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and The Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon. I have owned this book for over a year and haven not read any of it yet. Shame on me!!!  It has 688 pages, so if I read a couple pages a day I will have it read by the end of the year.  I will read more then a couple of pages a day, so it wont take me all year to finish it-I hope!  

4. Stay away from Gluten, Dairy, and Coffee.  I am not perfect, so I know I cant avoid these foods everyday for the next year, but I am starting on the Arbonne Get Fit plan again which includes not eating these items and more. These are the foods I have found that do not like me and in order for me to get to my goal weight and be healthy I need to cut these out of my diet.  I will discuss more of my eating plan on Monday, so check back for further details.  

5. Run a 10K.  This was on my list last year and I never accomplished running a 10K in 2012.  So 2013 is my year to run a 10K.  I hope to be up to a 10K within 6 months, which should not be a problem if I stick to the plan B has set up. 

The thing about making a list of goals is to actually be consistent and work on that list throughout the year.  So I will be posting my Fitness & Health Bucket List around the house and will include little baby steps on how to achieve each item on the list! 

I am also starting a health & fitness journal that I will record my meals and workouts everyday.  I'll also record my starting weight & measurements and continue to record these every 30 days.  It will be a great record of what I achieve when I stay committed and intentional.  

Here is a video I have been wanting to share that is VERY motivational.  You might have seen it already, but it is worth another watch.  



Do you set goals or have a bucket list?  Do you keep a fitness or health journal?  How do you achieve your goals and keep them in front of you so you are consistently working on them? 

I would love to know what your fitness and health goals are for the year, so let me know in the comments!

  1. Great goals. I can't believe you have never run alone, I am the opposite about 75% of my runs are alone and I love it :)
    Good luck giving up coffee, I couldn't do it (as I am drinking my 2nd cup for the day right now!)
