January Goals

That other post was about the plan for the whole year. A year is too long to make really specific goals, but a month is just right! As always, there will be one fitness goal and one food goal to focus on healthy living for the month.

Fitness Goal: Yoga
I failed at this miserably in December, only logging 4 classes for the month instead of the hoped for 7-8. Softball still doesn't start until February, so I have another month to give this a shot. Goal is 2 classes per week, and if I can't make a class I will use one of the 2 podcasts I downloaded (they are short sessions, so they should be easier to fit in) to get some practice in at home.

Food Goal: Eat more fruits and veggies
I really need to focus in on getting those 5 servings of fruits and vegetables in. Rather than make this the goal right away, I'll start by incorporating them into breakfast (traditionally my meal least likely to contain fruit or veggies) and mandate that at least one daily snack (if any are eaten) contain a fruit or vegetable. Baby steps.

While doing this, I'll also be working on the long-range goals: Sticking to the SmartCoach plan for my upcoming 10k and cooking one new dish per week as part of my 2012 Home Cooking challenge.
