Fitness Friday-Hitting the Reset Button
***Disclosure-Sample product was received for review. All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.
This is how I ended 2015....the workout thing was not working out for me. There was so much going on but I believe that now I am ready to try this again in 2016. I am ready to be successful.
I understand how life goes and how busy we get. I am ready to hit the reset button like many others on January 1st. I am ready to recommit myself to ME. Being healthy is a lifestyle change. I am human and like many we need to set some goals.
Last year I ran the Aramco Houston Half Marathon like previous years, I started and finished:
I remember the feeling of accomplishment after this race. I love that rush. Do you do something that makes you happy? Running makes me happy. I keep telling you, it is something I never though I could do. But I know I can. Here is what I will be working on:
1) Goal-I am setting a goal I can reach. This year I am not running marathons. I am trying to get back on the pavement. No matter what is going on I want to run at least 365 miles this year. Broken down, that is at least 1 mile a day. I plan to walk 10,000 steps every day.
2) Balance-Family -vs-Work. I have no secrets for you. All I can say is that I have an awesome husband that helps keep me balanced. This year I had a lot going on and balance was kinda one sided but it is has started to balance the right way now. All I can continue to do is keep trying to find balance.
3) Focus-I am going to use the 80 20 Rule. While my life may be falling apart, I cannot change or solve 100% of my problems. I have spend past years trying to fight a fight I have lost. A couple of years ago my life really fell apart more than ever and I never thought I was going to survive. Though I have more support than ever, things really hit me hard and I really went there. The place of no return. I lost total focus in the most important things. This year I did work on focus and the 80 20 rule really did help. Someone special to me kept telling me chores can wait, life moments will pass us by. So while I can't fix everything, I will start to focus where I can. Focus my energy where I can and will make a difference.
What will you be working on this year? How will you achieve it? Let's help each other.
