While reading some old posts on one of my favorite blogs I realized I haven't set any goals for awhile. And I'm bad at reviewing my progress with goals. Since tomorrow is a new month, I decided to copy Rachel's new month, new goals philosophy.
1. Finish Atlas Shrugged
2. Run 15 times
3. Bike 10 times (may include spinning)
4. Swim 5 times
5. Go to Zumba once a week
6. Start a new blog with a work focus
Six goals seems like possibly too many, but I'm registered for a triathlon Aug 7 and want to be ready for it, thus the swimming, biking, running goals. I'm not putting distances on them so I can give myself credit for short runs and rides. I've missed taking Zumba classes and want to support a co-worker that is teaching it now. And, while I'm not a big fan of setting weight loss goals with a number, I'd really like to firm everything up before our trip to Patoka Lake July 30 and I know exercise is the only way I'll accomplish that.
I've started Atlas Shrugged. It's huge, but I'm loving it. If I read 1 chapter a day, I will meet this goal.
I changed my blog from public to private a few months ago, but miss having a place to share my thoughts with the world. As I've thinking about looking for a new job, I've realized I'd really like to focus on lifestyle medicine. I want my new blog to be a reflection of my passion for healthy living through a balance of exercise, food, and fun.
